Da Licenca Boutique Hotel

Located in the beautiful Alentejo (a wonderful destination to retreat from crowds and sightsee through historic villages) in Portugal, lays this stunning boutique hotel. Dá Licença hotel takes over a former farm in an almost monastic retreat in Portugal’s Alentejo region that is set on a 300-acre former olive grove. The unique decor features artworks, furniture, and decorative objects made locally. It consists of three buildings, a larger structure housing the common areas, a suite and two guestrooms, and two smaller buildings where four additional suites and one more guestroom are located. Guests can enjoy a perfectly round pool set against a stunning view of rolling hills, or the T-shaped infinity pool with views of unfolding olives groves, or several private pools.
