Revitalised rural retreat
Rural estate Imani Country House may take its name from the Swahili for ‘believe’, but this farmhouse specialises in serving up Portuguese hospitality in style. Located in the Alentejo, the owners know how to mix modern luxury with the laid-back atmosphere of this lesser-known region. You'll find a locavore-loving restaurant for leisurely breakfasts until noon, as well as hammocks for lazing and two swimming pools encircled by pine and cedar groves. The hotel even produces its own olive oil from century-old trees that grow around the estate – evidence, if more were needed, that this romantic retreat remains firmly rooted to the land.
