About the rooms

All rooms are scattered throughout the estate in the main building and several outbuildings. The rooms all have wonderfully soft beds and everything else you need for a wonderful stay. Extra nice touches include flat-screen TVs, iPod docks and Bulgari bath products. The Suites at Casa das Pedras and the exclusive Casa da Ribeira and Casa das Artes & Ofícios each come with a private pool.

Our favourite room

A few rooms this time. The Flower, for example, has a zesty lime green style and is the only room with direct access to the pool. Families, in turn, are going to appreciate the extra space in a Junior Suite. Looking for peace and quiet? Then opt for a room in the exclusive Casa da Ribeira and Casa das Artes & Ofícios, which have fully equipped kitchens and private pools.

Enjoy a refreshing swim

There is an infinity pool in the vineyards, with dark wood floors and bright blue tiles. Would you like your own private pool? Then choose a suite in Casa das Pedras or one of the hotel's exclusive casas. In addition, each building has its own swimming pool for guests. So plenty of opportunity to regularly go for a refreshing swim.

Work out and wind down

An amazing Spa, gardens to get lost in, a library to envy and a great selection of CDs and DVDs. Would you like to get sporty? Then take advantage of the tennis court which you can use for free 1 hour during your stay. Join a guided hike or do a mountain bike tour. Prefer something less sporty? Enjoy a cooking workshop, a wine tasting or a balloon ride.... One thing is certain: you won't be bored for a moment during your stay here!

herdade da malhadinha nova restaurant

Food & Drink

Top table

The table in the glass corner of the restaurant gives you a view of the vineyards. Be sure to try the chickpea stew and finish with heavenly chocolate cake. Really worth it!


Time to wear your favorite summer chic outfit.

The restaurant is the first building you see when you enter the estate. The chef has his own approach to the cuisine that typifies the Alentejo, which is why the restaurant is popular with locals. The decor is also worthwhile: one half feels rustic, with wooden furniture and a fireplace; the other half is modern, with glass walls and white and emerald green rattan chairs. The hotel bar is located in the main building where breakfast is also served and wine tastings are organized. You will totally relax there among the beautiful wine bottles and with blissful lounge music in the background.
