Quinta das Bolotas is a place where serenity reigns, somewhere where you can inhale pure oxygen, and relax! Taking its name from the acorns that grow on the estate, this quintessentially Portuguese Quinta (country house) is surrounded by 87 hectares of unspoilt countryside planted with cork trees and holm oaks. The property is particularly suited for group getaways looking for a peaceful rural location yet with plenty to do on offer, from horse riding to yoga, cooking classes to regional wine tasting.
The luxurious accommodation of the main Quinta building spreads over 2 levels and offers 6 bedroom suites all with private bathrooms. The master bedroom on the top floor has a 4-poster bed and enjoys landscape views of the surrounding countryside. Across the courtyard is a more modest double suite and a recently converted workers cottage with a double bedroom as well as bunk beds, just perfect to accommodate a couple with young children or teenagers wanting some independence.
There is a 100 sq square meters living room with wide screen TV and a large fireplace, and a 50 sq metres dining room also with a fire place, that can sit up to 16 guests around the table or cater for special events of up to 30 people. Both the living and dining rooms open onto covered terraces for outdoor dining and to the pool area, whilst the kitchen offers a fantastic space for an Alentejo cooking lesson, should you be interested.
Available for year-round rentals, a housekeeper supervises the property daily and can prepare breakfasts and simple meals at guests request. Alternatively, you can book a regional chef to try some of the local gastronomy, as well as choose wines from Quinta’s private cellar!
The crisp and clear winter days are perfect for discovering the Alentejo province and all it has to offer, with roaring fires beckoning you back once the sun goes down; whereas, in the summer heat, you’ll be taking refuge by the swimming pool during the day and enjoying outdoor meals in the evening. The Alto Alentejo where Quinta das Bolotas is located, boasts two UNESCO Heritage Sites (Elvas and Évora), several castles and local markets, and many vineyards within close proximity where an educational wine tasting visit is a must; as well as being close to the Spanish border.
WARNING NOTES: There are horses and 1 cat at the property, whilst guests pets are also welcome (on request). Children under 5 years of age need to be supervised and are only accepted with a signed disclaimer.
