"In the heart of Central Alentejo, a Country-Chic refuge where you can hear the silence"

Once Upon a Time...

In the heart of Serra D’Ossa, amidst plains and valleys, vineyards and olive trees, stands the distinguished Herdade Água D’Alte. As tradition has it, this is a Herdade Branca (White Estate), whose interior and decoration go beyond the traditional. This charming country retreat combines countryside and contemporary styles, where comfort is planned down to the last detail.

The estate invites you to sleep your cares away in one of the 5 suites (3 master and 2 junior) or in a double bedroom. Top comfort beds and special Percal bed linen invite you to drop into a profound sleep, far away from stress. Casa das Malhadas is a charming 1-room apartment that has kept the same name since it was built and Casa do Xisto is a place of leisure. In addition to the dining room, which serves a fabulous, traditional breakfast, there is a leisure area whose fireplace will keep you warm on cold days. The swimming pool and the African-inspired lounge, with a lounge and an eating area, is another one of the highlights of this unit.

Redondo is just 7 km away and is enchanting for its authenticity, strong wine-making tradition and for its traditional pottery. Estremoz, Monte Mor and Vila Viçosa towns are just 15 minutes away.
