L’and Vineyards brings the trending concept of vineyard hotels to an entirely different level, thanks to its commitment to a zen environment and ambiance. The elegant design by the Portuguese architects practice Promontorio and the Brazilian interiors studio mk27 is the perfect setting to unwind and relax, just an hour east of bustling Lisbon.
The main building was designed as a hinged prism from which its four corners are cut off. The central reception building houses a living room, the restaurant, a library, and the spa with an indoor pool. Inspired by the whitewashed walled patios of the Alentejo region, this structure also houses part of the wine operations on the lower level. The interiors are designed by Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan using slate and oak wood as the main materials.
All suites are located throughout the property surrounding the main structure and have very generous proportions. Part of the suites has retractable roofs, allowing guests to enjoy stargazing straight from their bed. I surely enjoyed this feature during my visit and slept under the stars each night.
