The story of the estate. São Lourenço do Barrocal has been in the same family for more than 200 years, and it was José António Uva (who is eight generation of the same family) who had a vision to turn the family property into a farm retreat he could share with others. The passion and dedication behind José António’s dream, and what he has created, is incredibly inspiring.
The interiors. Perfectly simple and calming. The interior design was led by José António’s wife Ana’s design studio, AnahoryAlmeida (also responsible for the interiors of many of Lisbon’s finest restaurants) and it is a dream.
Hortelão, their outdoor restaurant. The most beautiful place to dine between Spring through Autumn, this slow-food, farm to fork restaurant is located next to the pool, right by the organic kitchen garden, and is the perfect place to enjoy a dinner under the stars.
Where to stay.
A handpicked edit of some of our very favourite places to stay around the world. For us, the best hotel and accommodation experiences are not just the most expensive and fancy ones. We curate our favourites based on all the things that make them tops – from the charming people who run them, to the unique design, the stunning locations, the tiny, considered touches, the great food, and anything and everything else in between that somehow set them apart from the rest.
