Herdade da Malhadinha Nova | Luxury designer villa with hotel services in Portugal

    Magnificent country estate
    Exceptional experiences
    Hotel services inclusive

Via a long tree-lined driveway and surrounded by vineyards you arrive at Herdade da Malhadinha Nova; a beautiful estate of no less than 450 hectares.

This estate is owned by the Portuguese Soares family, they are known for their large collection of quality wines and during a tour, through the winery and the working vineyards, you will learn all about the family history. In recent years, the family hotel has been transformed into a 5-star (Relais & Chateaux) boutique resort, where you can enjoy the golden landscape of the Alentejo from your luxurious private villa.

The private villas all have a unique personality, privacy, an exclusive interior, and of course a private swimming pool. In perfect harmony with the rural landscape, you will find a nice mix of modernity, old traditions, rural details, original furniture designed by local craftsmen, and (inter) national design objects from Olavo, Vista Alegre, Marcel Wanders, Alvar Aalto, Agape, and Philippe Starck.

During your stay, you will be completely pampered and you can be entertained all day long. Start the day with a good breakfast, relax in the luxurious wellness area with a spa treatment or a massage or explore the estate on foot, horseback, or with your own buggy (the private villas all have their own buggy). Unwind at your sparkling private swimming pool or take part in one of the countless activities of Malhadinha Nova such as (cooking) workshops, riding lessons in their own management, dance lessons and a balloon flight. It's all about unique experiences here!

On a culinary level, you are also in the right place here with a Michelin star chef who leads the restaurant for lunch and dinner and, above all, uses homegrown ingredients. The concept is based around signature cooking. Of course, you can also taste the wines from the own winery! 

If you still want to venture out, you can drive to the historic city of Évora in one your and fifteen minutes, the beaches of the Algarve are ideally located just over an hour's drive away and you can explore various picturesque rural villages (such as Beja, Mértola and Serpa) in the near surroundings.
