Unplug and unwind at the Serenada Wine Hotel. This property is located in a part of Portugal that is still untouched, where the pace is slow and the population sparse.
At the top of the Grandola Hills lies this serene 23 acre property – Serenada Wine Hotel. Find yourself nestled into a landscape of vineyards and native olive and cork trees; the cork is used for wine bottle production. This hotel has been in the same family for over three centuries and features six double bedrooms. Each has its own private bathroom and neutral decor using local materials like cork. Admire the scenery of forests, the ocean at a distance, and the sparkling stars from the suites’ balcony. Stay warm and cozy near the wood burning stove in a room complete with rustic details.
Enjoy the buffet breakfast of fresh, regional products. Guests can learn more about the traditional wine making practices at a tasting and a tour of the cellar and vineyards. Serenada Wine Hotel has two vineyards, and one has been producing since 1961. Ocean breezes, the coolness of the hills, and mineral-rich soil make this area ideal for ripening grapes. You can try your hand at making wine and honey with the experts.
As you sip on a glass of wine, look far beyond and catch sight of the Cape Espichel lighthouse. A short jaunt takes you to the beautiful beaches of the Alentejo coast, where the sand is powdery and soft and it is easy to find a secluded spot to sun bathe or walk along the sparkling surf. This corner of Portugal still feels remote and untouched.
Visit the historic villages of Santiago do Cacem with its old Moorish castle, parish church, and steep narrow streets. This area has an intoxicating blend of maritime coast, pine forests, and authentic Portuguese life. Handicrafts are made from wood and wicker by local artisans in the little towns.
After a day of leisurely wandering, lounge on the sun terrace at the Serenada Wine Hotel and take a dip in the swimming pool. Wander through the pretty countryside of wild flowers with a picnic basket in hand. Bike through the rice fields, taking in the fresh and salty air. Guests seeking tranquility will feel the calm nature of this property.Request Information
