Alentejo, Portugal

Herdade da Malhadinha Nova

An estate within the heart of Alentejo

A modern retreat in rural Portugal

Perfectly integrated into the landscape, Herdade da Malhadinha Nova has six guest accommodations, five on the estate and another one five kilometres away in the village of Albernoa. They portray the various chapters in the history of this family-style project built around wine. Choose from peaceful villas, a country house or spectacular guest suites, many of which feature private balconies and exterior areas with singular views over the Alentejo plains and the outside pool.

For dining head to Herdade da Malhadinha Nova’s restaurant which draws inspiration from the local regional cuisine. Here all of the food is created with the organic produce grown on the estate, from the fields, vineyard, olive grove and pastures.

To indulge yourself further, make your way to the M Wellness spa. The treatments here are divided into IGNAE experiences, focused on specific facial products and body treatments. These use wine, honey and rosemary: three primary ingredients of Herdade da Malhadinha Nova.

The M Wellness Spa also offers experiences combining yoga classes, sensory showers and a sauna along with nutritional lunches made up of organic ingredients produced on the estate. These lunches are paired with wine, olive oil and honey. You can also take part in relaxation therapies or chakra alignment. Outside of the property you can enjoy activities such as an exhilarating balloon ride or skydive, or take it slow with a day spent baking bread and learning artisanal techniques.
