Quinta das Lavandas is a small farm hotel based on sustainable principles and with a soft scent of lavender

Once Upon a Time...

It’s by following the soft, inspiring scent of Lavender, through shades of purple, that you will reach Quinta das Lavandas in the heart of São Mamede Natural Park. It’s a 6 ha lavender plantation that gives you an unparalleled assortment of colours, emotions and sensations when it is in bloom, giving you an unforgettable sensorial experience, unique in Portugal.

Opposite to the plantation and the organic garden is the building which was reconstructed until the last detail in comfort and that houses 7 rooms. They are all different and inspired by the flora of the estate, which gives each one of them an individual name. The decor uses bright, warm colours combined with original and distinctive decorative pieces, perfectly suited to the surroundings.

The unique and historical town of Castelo de Vide is just 4 kilometres away. It is known as “Alentejo’s Sintra” due to its stunning beauty, rich vegetation and historical legacy, which give the town the charisma of one of the most romantic towns in the Alentejo region.
