Sometimes the simple things in life are the best. New to the boutique hotel scene in Alentejo, Imani Country House is a perfect example of exactly that. Beautifully restored, this agricultural farm Quinta de Montemuro is now home to a gorgeous small boutique hotel which oozes charm and style in an understated way. Just 60 minutes from Lisbon, Imani, which means 'believing' in Swahili is a rural retreat where you can actually think and allow yourself to just be. Don't be surprised if this is in Lulu's top ten before too long.
Imani is just 10 minutes from Evora, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and a World Heritage Site - a visit here is a must during your stay. For wine lovers you can visit the wine school and discover the art of wine making with tastings led by award-winning winemaker Paulo Laureano. Surrounded by nature there are plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy during your stay at this chic retreat including fishing, bird watching, hiking, biking and outdoor games.
Simple and delicious dinners are served on Friday and Saturday evenings.
