With a history that dates back 200 years to megalithic times, the São Lourenço do Barrocal is an 810-hectare agricultural estate, which sits in Portugal’s spectacular Alentejo countryside in the foothills of the medieval village of Monsaraz and nearby the Alqueva lake. A pet-friendly property of understated luxury, surrounded by ancient holm oaks, olive groves and vineyards, is a working farm producing fruit and various other crops as well as its own wine.


The property is very family-oriented offering the utmost service and all the comfort of modern living. It has been in the same family for over two centuries and José António Uva is the eighth generation of the same family to have lived at São Lourenço do Barrocal, and has been the driving force behind the development of the estate, which took 14 years to create, making it what it is today.


São Lourenço do Barrocal is made up of 7 buildings, divided into 2 sets along one main cobblestone street. Transformed into an elegant luxury boutique hotel, the ancient barns, outbuildings, and olive press have been renovated into guestrooms, suites, cottages and a spa, while the stables continue to house horses. As an equestrian, you will certainly enjoy this experience during your stay.


There are 22 guestrooms, 2 suites, and 16 cottages on the property, all with breath-taking countryside views, all with modern amenties.


The restaurant offers a cuisine that is deeply rooted in Alentejo’s tradition, respecting the flavour and simplicity of the region. From the farm to the table you’ll enjoy the freshest organic produce and local delicacies.


This estate will charm you during any season of the year, but it’s the springtime that will overwhelm you with vibrant colour and splendour of the lavender and chamomile fields in bloom. Its beauty and the sensual fragrance that fills the air will transport you.


The Alentejo is one of the best-preserved landscapes and one of the least populated regions of southern Europe. Perfect for road trips, since roads are very safe and easy to drive on, leading through numerous charming historic villages, vineyards, wineries, and restaurants serving traditional food. You will also discover the Alqueva’s Dark Sky Reserve, an area covering more than 3.000 square kilometres surrounding the biggest artificial lake in Europe. The ideal location to enjoy stargazing for most of the year, the world’s first “Starlight Tourism Destination, it is renowned as one of the best of all places to watch the sky and the stars at night.


There is so much to enjoy on this estate from the wellness spa, an outdoor swimming pool, estate tours, wine tasting, horse riding, learn about the estate’s honey cycle with the beekeeping team, or you can discover the beauty of this region with a hot air balloon adventure.


Best of all, you can relax and enjoy the beauty of the landscape and this luxurious retreat taking long undisturbed walks with your dog.


The property is about a 2-hour drive from Lisbon, very close to the border with Spain and about 45 minutes drive from Évora, a UNESCO World Heritage city.
