“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Every year we travel with the same group of old friends to a good place in Portugal to be together, to enjoy good food and relax for 3 days. Every year the expectations are very high and we do resarch a lot. Agua d'Alte was fantastic, with awsome decor, warm hospitality and fantastic food ( we ate 3 meals and love it). But the best was to be toghether outside watching star filled nights or the views of the sheep in the field while relaxing at the pool.

Agua d'Alte is paradise in Alentejo. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were treated like royalty. Exquisitely decorated rooms and common rooms, warm hospitality, outstanding service and fantastic food. Our whole experience well exceeded our expectations. We are already planning our return!

What a jewel of hidden beauty. We so loved the time we spent in the separate house separate from the main building. Waking up to the views of the sheep in the field and the smell of the lavender was heaven. The star filled night was a great way to relax after wine on the deck chairs outside. We also loved the pool and the breakfast! can't wait to go back

Agua d'Alte is simply a jewel! We spent six nights in this wonderful place, more home than hotel. It is exquisitely furnished, all materials used are of high quality, it is well thought out in every respect; all rooms re air-conditioned. Peace and tranquillity prevailed throughout our stay. It was sheer bliss! Food servedat breakfast and at the simple lunches we ordered was home grown - what a difference. The pergola beside the swimming pool provided ample shade (on most days the temperature reached 33/34° in the middle of September) and a drinks cabinet is put at guests' disposal for leasurely afternoons. Last but no least: the staff could not have been nicer or more attentive - we shall definitely return.

Room Tip: The Magnolia junior suite has a cosy terrace all of its own.

This is the perfect place for stressed out people who excel at multi-tasking throughout the year - as you drive through the gate of Herdade Agua d'Alte you change gear and adrenalie takes the back seat.
A new world awaits you here, where you simply 'forget yourself', where silence can be heard (you realize your hearing is actually VERY good !), you wake up at the song of the neighbour's cock and you know when the hen-mother has produced a fresh egg (she's got a strong voice!) .... the sheep graze next to your terrace and there is a black cat who patrols all night-long, so good-bye burglers !! She's a big talker too !!
Beautiful settings all round, charming and friendly people watch over you and make sure you feel comfortable. Food-wise, the kitchen fairy ensures you fall in love with Alentejo specialties (and you will !) and this part of the country has great wines to challenge your tastebuds ! The lounge/pergola by the swimming pool is a delightful place to spend an evening and enjoy an evening meal listening to the ciccadas (in summer !).

In addition, within a short radius of about 30KM, there are great places to visit where remnants of Portugal's old & rich History are available for all to see and marvel at (Evora, Estremoz, Vila Voçosa, etc); Europe's largest lake (the Alqueva) is also nearby for the delight of our eyes (go to Monsarraz) and some water sports are available in season.

So, what are you waiting for ?? Hurry up, go ! - You will love it and enjoy so much that you'll want to 'buy a subscription'....

Excelent surprise. Wonderful place to rest and live a little " Alentejo way".
Rooms very confortable, very good breakfast.
We have dinner just one night but it was very pleasant.
You feel cosy, and the weather doesn't allow that weekend that we spend some time in the nice pool and lounge...
If you want to relax and live slowly for a change you should consider spent some time here.
