Hotel Description

Time was, travelers knew Portugal’s Alentejo wine region, if they knew it at all, as a sort of poor man’s Tuscany. (Well, not poor, exactly, but you get the idea.) Increasingly we’ve seen stylish country inns popping up in Portugal to rival those in Italy, but L’AND Vineyards represents something in another league entirely — a striking work of modern hotel architecture on par with some of the world’s recent best, with a winery, Michelin-starred restaurant and a set of high-design suites with retractable roofs thrown in for good measure.

Generally we like to let our own endorsement of a place do the talking, but when a hotel gets the nod from both the Michelin Guide (for the food) and Wallpaper magazine (for the architecture and design), odds are we’re up for it as well. Drop it in the rolling hills of Portugal’s Alentejo region, in the bucolic countryside beyond the ancient city of Évora, and we’re pretty much falling over backwards in our ergonomic chairs to bring you the news.

Devised by architect Marcio Kogan of the MK27 Studio in São Paulo, the hotel is a sort of independent, Brazilian late-modernist take on the Aman concept — minimalist aesthetics in a stunning and unspoiled setting. This particular stunning and unspoiled setting comprises some sixty-six acres of vineyards, woodlands and gently rolling hills. Évora’s iconic medieval hilltop castle is just off in the distance, on view from some of the suites.

The best views of all, though, are of something older still: the stars. Eleven of the hotel’s twenty-two suites have roofs that open to the sky, and in a region with remarkably little light pollution, the night skies are indeed spectacular. Even the suites whose roofs are stuck in place, though, have plenty to recommend them — a hundred and twenty square meters of space, to begin with, including outdoor terraces with fireplaces, private patios, custom-made king beds and lots of luxurious little details like heated floors and Egyptian cotton linens. Some of them add plunge pools to the mix as well. All of them are as eye-pleasing as can be, sustainably built from local stone, slate and wood.

How to get there:

L’AND Vineyards is located 65 miles, about an hour’s drive, from Lisbon’s Portela Airport (LIS). Please email CustomerService@TabletHotels.com for further information or assistance.
