Set in the heart of Alentejo, on a gentle south-facing valley, looking towards the skyline of the medieval Montemor castle, L ́AND Vineyards offers a distinctive landscape starring its vineyards, oak and olive orchards, alongside a perfectly integrated Architectural project by Promontório, striking interiors designed by Márcio Kogan, and ethereal artwork by Michael Biberstein.
History & Story
The project started from scratch in 2006 and opened in 2011. Our people and our region are the ultimate reason for our work. We seek to create and manage small scale exceptional hospitality projects that create economic, social and environmental value, shared with our community. We seek to integrate architecture, art, landscape, nature, local crafts, sound and scent to create an atmosphere of tranquility, where guest can feel at home and revitalize. We believe in simplicity and slowness. We value contemporary architecture and art that reflects the identity of our region: Alentejo. We think service should be based on a simple idea: treating our guests the same way we would like to be treated in similar circumstances. Service should be personalized, detailed and inspiring. Shall be present but not felt. We value wine culture as an essential part of our culture.
Guided by a desire to create a hotel with a real sense of place, L’AND Vineyards was born in 2011.
Reflecting the region’s true identity, and with wine and wine culture at the root of our identity, L’AND aims to integrate modern architecture, interior and landscape design, nature, local crafts, sound and scent to create an atmosphere of sober luxury and tranquility, where guest can feel at home and revitalize. We believe in simplicity and slowness.
Our people and our region are at the essence of everything we do. We seek to create and manage small scale exceptional hospitality projects that create economic, social and environmental value which in turn is shared with our community.
We aim to tread lightly and make a positive contribution in the region and strive for real environmental commitment in all aspects of our activity.
We believe service should be grounded on one simple idea: to treat our guests the same way we would like to be treated in similar circumstances. Our service should be personalized, detailed and enriching. It should be present, but not felt.
L’AND Vineyards is promoted by a family-based agro-business company, Sousa Cunhal. The group created in the second half of the 19th century operates mainly in agriculture, forestry and in oenology.
“For over ten years, I have had the immense pleasure of writing the story of L’AND Vineyards by the side of our team and guests. A story that places architecture, design, creativity and service and the heart of everything. Here’s to the next ten years!” José Cunhal (Founder and Owner)
Sky and L’and Suites have been renovated but not refurbished. We have included books, and comfort details, Marshall speakers in all rooms, revamped the terraces with new furniture and bond fire. We have created a new Café and Lounge named Café Viajante offering Asian inspired Cuisine, a brand new wine tasting room next to the cellar and the main bar was moved to the garden lounge. A deck over the Lake is now available with terrace and al fresco dining.
