A winery, two farm-to-table restaurants, local crafts, and a spa provide endless options for guests to immerse themselves in Portuguese culture
In the same family for over 200 years, São Lourenço do Barrocal is the heart of an ancient small farming village in Portugal’s foothills of Monsaraz. The 2,000 acre estate was loving restored to a luxurious hotel and working farm by José António Uva, the eighth generation of the Uva family to have lived on the property. A winery, two farm-to-table restaurants, farm shop with local crafts, and a spa by Susanne Kaufmann provide endless options for guests to immerse themselves in Portuguese culture. Bask in the sun at two outdoor pools. Stroll through the organic vegetable garden and orchard followed by a picnic in the olive groves. Bike through the holm oaks, or stop by the stables to arrange an afternoon of horseback riding. After a day of activities retreat back to a private cottage or guestroom where simplicity and handmade quality meet to welcome restfulness and rejuvenation.
