Da Licença

Set in a national eco- reserve, Da Licença is an almost Monastic Arts & Crafts – influenced retreat in Portugal’s Alentejo region. The hotel’s owners undertook the design themselves, and interiors are inspired by their love of art and nature, while a local architectural firm rehabilitated the series of historic buildings that now houses five suites, all with private gardens and terraces. An old olive pressing room is now a gallery for the owner’s art collection.
