Herdade dos Mestres is a traditional rough-cast Alentejo's building, painted white with a blue base and a gable roof covering a single floor at ground level. The exterior balconies which run along the whole building are prime spots for taking in the views, while offering shade and protection from the sun and wind. The thick walls and small windows retain the heat in Winter and keep the house cool in Summer. Finally, the huge chimneys extract the smoke of the open fires which bring warmth to the cold evenings.
Herdade dos Mestres has six rooms (double and twin) and an apartment for up to six people. Four of the rooms are in the oldest wing of the house (dating back to 1913), while the others are located on the newer side. As we want our guests to feel at home, there is also a room with a fireplace where one can relax and listen to the crackling flames, a pleasant breakfast room, two cosy sitting rooms, a games room, bar and two spacious porches.
Our estate is a country house which offers the simplicity and tradition of the Alentejo coupled with the comfort of modern life and environmental sustainability. Given that the Alentejo region benefits from long periods of sun, Herdade dos Mestres uses solar energy in its panels to heat water and produce electricity.
