Alentejo

by: Yoann Wenger

  • Why

    Summer’s end vacation.

  • When

    Summer 2013

  • Who

    Me and my girlfriend.

Highs + Lows

  • Architecture and design - the furniture!

  • Peaceful vibes and a great library.

  • Jean François & Christophe’s hospitality, which makes you (really) feel at home.

  • If you don’t rent a car, remember this is the countryside - you can’t go very far from the house.

  • As this is more of a guesthouse, the restaurant can be a low if you’re looking to have lunch or dinner there everyday.
