• Unique: minimalistic interiors that would not look out of place in NYC, but are strangely comforting in the Alentejo countryside
Beautiful restored convent with a sleek new extension which houses the bedrooms. Forget about the Arraiolos carpets, just lounge around the pool overlooking the rolling Alentejan countryside. The decoration, all cool whites, beige, blond woods and Alentejo blue looking surprisingly in-place here. Local cuisine is amazingly in-place too here. Ssst: only just over an hour from Lisbon!
