Casa Nova da Cruz, countryside
Paraíso Escondido -hidden paradise- is an enchanting Alentejo-style farmhouse fusing Portuguese rural style with Asian style. The decoration is complemented by an array of Asian antiques and art collected by the owners during their time living in Asia. Outdoor, guests can relax by the pool, on the sun terrace or in the large gardens with small lake. The Southwest Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Natural Parks are just a short drive or walk through the eucalyptus and cork trees surrounding the property.
There are five beautifully appointed double bedroom rooms and suites, all with their own en-suite bathrooms and direct access to the garden, patio and pool. Guests can use the large lounge, dining and reading area. The elegant conservatory dining room can be opened up during the warmer months, making it a perfect indoor/outdoor eating area. This is also where the breakfast is served including organic free-range eggs, fresh fruit and juices, local freshly baked bread, yoghurts, cereals, a selection of cold meats and cheeses and a range of herbal teas and coffee.
'Farm to table' dinners and light meals using locally sourced produce and seasonal vegetables from the organic vegetable garden are on request. Several traditional Portuguese restaurants can be found in nearby São Teotónio.
A number of Thai massages are available from a trained, licensed therapist.
This is the perfect location to slow down, relax and reconnect with the beautiful things that life has to offer. Here, guests will find pure nature, delicious food, and great company. Mix this together with enjoyable, inspiring and healthy experiences and you will have a magical way to become grounded and enriched on a physical, emotional and spiritual level, leaving you feeling re-charged and in a much better place.
