Perched on the heights, facing the river Guadiana which marks the frontier with Spain, Monsaraz clearly deserves its title of Portugal’s most beautiful village. Behind the high stone walls, a delightful maze of narrow, shady streets, whitewashed houses and small flower-filled squares invite visitors to go back in time. The “Quinta de Santa Maria”, nestling on a side of the hill, is an old, 3.5-ha farming estate. Comprising a main house spanning more than 500 m² and miscellaneous outbuildings, this property has been fully renovated by an enthusiast, who fell in love with the region many years ago. The result is an excellent example of a successful restoration project which has preserved the character and authenticity of the premises, whilst installing necessary modern-day home comforts. The house has a total of four bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. The lounge opens directly on to a large terrace where it is possible to admire the sunsets as well as one of the most beautiful starry night skies of the northern hemisphere. A monumental well, going down to a depth of 12 metres has also been found on this property. Legend has it that this work of art was hewn directly in the rock, an amazing feat for the time. Possibly the ideal site for a wine storehouse or cellar, Monsaraz was elected the “European wine capital” in 2015.
