Spend Christmas or New Year’s Eve in São Lourenço do Barrocal, among pottery workshops, wine tastings, and horse-drawn carriage rides. Let yourself go with a Susanne Kaufmann massage or a horseback ride through the estate. Take the kids to feed the farm animals and see the stars in the company of an astronomer. Welcome the nights among Alentejo flavours and great playful music.
On August 13th São Lourenço do Barrocal will hold its first festival! We will be celebrating the saint who lends its name to our hotel: Saint Lawrence (São Lourenço), patron saint of cooks.
This weekend opened the official Summer season (at least ours anyway!) and we made our first big picnic. The perfect tree shade was calling right by the lake shore and friends gathered to talk, laugh and teach the kids how to spot tiny frogs and crickets.
Enjoy a life-changing getaway based on silence, nature, yoga, mindful movement, meditation, healthy food and daily “mindful lifestyle” sessions. Just slow down, increase awareness, simplify life and reconnect with yourself. Discover the healing power of the amazing nature while in our estate. You will feel the sparkling authenticity of this energetic region. Rest and silence will rejuvenate you.
