Sustainable Luxury In Midst Alentejo
Sustainability, eco-friendly, sustainable luxury are some of the main trends in tourism at the moment. Herdade da Malhadinha Nova, located in the heart of Alentejo, in the city of Beja, celebrates two decades of work in tourism and is increasingly aware of sustainable options. With six Accommodations, the hotel is the synonym of diversity, blending selected pieces of exclusive and curated interior design (a chandelier designed for Moooi by the famous product designer Marcel Wanders) with a century-old grand piano. And has Michelin star Joachim Koerper as the consultant chef, what more can we ask for?
The Alentejo is synonymous with large, green ridges that overlook the traditionally brown land. The heat, the landscape, and its characteristics are what captures us. The estate is located in one of the biggest and best wine regions in the country and offers an experience to match.
With space as far as the eye can see, the estate spreads over 450 hectares in Beja, produces 350,000 bottles of wine a year, and has vineyards, olive groves, cows, horses, organic production, cellar, restaurant! The project has grown and is now part of the Relais & Châteaux network, one of the most prestigious in the world, but it remains familiar and in the hands of Soares, people from the Algarve who discovered “the passion of a lifetime” in the Alentejo.
"PRIVACY, EXCLUSIVITY, AND LUXURY ARE THE KEYWORDS THAT CONNECT THE DIFFERENT SPACES.", Herdade da Malhadinha Nova, in their website.
