In the heart of the Alentejo Countryside, near the beautiful historic city of Evora, considered the historical capital of Alentejo, a Unesco World Heritage Site, is located Wabi Sabi Alentejo Estate – a slice of timeless rural Portugal.
A bespoke estate huddled amidst the rolling cork hills and vineyards of Sao Miguel de Machede, this is a place for romantics and intrepid travelers alike. The silence of the sun-drenched morning, broken only by the distant echo bells of the free grazing cattle, assure a reconnection with a slower pace of life. This country house, secluded by palm groves and olive trees, lies perched in a top of a hill, with uninterrupted panoramas of the beautiful countryside around it.
Gracefully remade, with all the modern comforts and the necessary technology, this singular Estate, comprised of 2 villas and 6 suites and a Fly Camping capsule, overlooks the marvelous fields where nature happens and cattle roams freely. A palm shaded large pool, guarded by a cacti garden and olive trees, fountains and a lake are all comprised within the property. Formerly a family home and farm, it sits on two hectares of land, with its own centuries old olive fields and abundant wildflowers growing among the native flora.
The cleverly-designed spaces were created by a noted landscaper. Simple and romantic, they surround the villas and the attachment buildings. A series of paths lead you to undiscovered, wilder areas where you can reflect and relax and study the bird life. Shady areas are perfect for settling down with a great book. The gardens are tranquil, calm and simply planted, and complement the house and its leisurely ambience.
The bedrooms offer spacious living and sleeping accommodation, featuring king size organic talalay beds, dressed in the finest egyptian cotton and luxurious bedding, to ensure the perfect nights sleep.
Bathrooms are finished with a mixture of natural clay and earth of the estate, and lioz natural marble, fitted with Gessi and Cea Design fittings, Hand Carved marble baths, and walk in rain drencher showers stocked with soft towels offers a one of a kind bathing experience, were the simplicity and purity of design intends to transmit the outmost sophistication.
