The Vibe: Alentejo awesome.
The Area: In the remote, softly hilling plains of the Alentejo. Breathtaking view unfolds with vistas for miles and miles. It is about a 15-minute drive to Grândola, about 30 minutes to the A2 motorway exit and 1 hour to Lisbon and its airport. The wild Atlantic beaches can be reached in 30 minutes.
The DNA: Conceived by owner/architect Miguel Correira as an extended guest house, the Sobreiras Alentejo Country Hotel shares the 25 hectares estate on which his country home stands, which can be seen from the estate’s driveway. The elegant design is inspired by the surrounding nature with the richness of landscapes and flavors of the Alentejo. The purpose was to value and favor the rural environment surrounding the hotel, taking it as theme, seeking to provide a space to enjoy the countryside, full of comfort and quiet, in a simple and contemporary atmosphere. Wooden logs used in facades establish a dialogue with the surrounding landscape, contrasting with the white buildings of simple and refined geometry. Interiors feature the same simplicity of the exteriors and use cork floors in rooms, wooden accents and mid-century inspired furniture.
Suite-Me-Up: The rooms and 2 suites are set in a series of buildings, evoking the traditional image of a house with the characteristics of the traditional regional architecture, in the sobriety of lines and materials. All rooms feature wide spaces, minimal design and private terraces (facing east, to protect from the strong sun west) providing all the comfort and privacy to enjoy the peaceful countryside and views.
