    Introduction

    São Lourenço do Barrocal estate has been in the same family for over 200 years. You'll find it nestled in the foothills of the medieval village of Monsaraz, a small farming village whose community has been restored and brought back to life by 8th generation owner José António Uva.  

    Set in the heart of the village by nearby Alqueva Lake, this remarkable boutique hotel of understated luxury is surrounded by ancient holm oaks, olive groves and vineyards. The vastness of the Alentejo region is evident through the landscape, large spaces and big blue skies.

    This boutique hotel is a unique find in Alentejo, Portugal and an experience not to be missed by children and adults. Small pets accepted.

    Activities
    This country estate is ideal if you're looking for an active holiday or a pampering one. Activities including hot air ballooning, mountain biking, horse riding, bird watching and wine tastings to name but a few. Kids will love the treasure hunt and there's also a playroom with plenty of books, games and toys. If archaeology is your thing then you can join archaeologist Manuel Calado in a conversation about the incredible history of the 'barrocais'.

    Signature treatments by Susanne Kaufmann are available in the spa and the dry saunas, relaxation room and cedar hot bath are all free of charge for you to use during your stay (though booking of the hydrotherapy room is recommended). 

    As well as fitness sessions, if you want to have a go at Pilates or yoga, you can book a class in the spa, followed by some downtime in the relaxation room.
    Dining

    An organic breakfast, with artisanal bread from Alentejo and local delicacies, is served between 7:30 am and 11 am. Although room service is available we think you'd be a fool to miss the farm to table experience in the restaurant.

    Authentic local dishes, most of which are organic and deeply rooted in Alentejo's tradition, are served at São Lourenço do Barrocal. The menu changes monthly always ensuring only the best season products are used. Local delicacies include homemade flatbread, oven-roasted cod and rack of grass-fed lamb with mustard sauce.
