Herdade de Sobroso is a lovely place with lovely staff(Christina and Pedro).Just back from spending New Years Eve weekend.
Just a few setbacks, first the breakfast is very poor , supermarket sliced ham and cheese and,not a boiled egg in sight!! One toaster for over a dozen people.
The decoration is chaotic and amateurish and obviously been done on a budget of money and taste.
Still,nice area,perhaps new ownership policy,with an eye for customer satisfaction would make a significant difference for the better.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located in the Vidigueira municipality, in Alentejo, and only 9 km away from the Alqueva dam, this charming country house is equipped with air-conditioned rooms with cable television. The salt water outdoor swimming pool ending in a waterfall offers a panoramic view of the vineyards and of the Serra do Mendro. With a rustic and yet refined and slightly exotic decoration, the rooms at the Herdade do Sobroso Country House also include mini-bar, a desk and a private bathroom. So that guests can discover the natural beauty of the Alentejo region, the front desk, which is open 24 hours, can organise wine tours, initiations to wine tastings, visitations to our cellar, photographic safaris with the possibility of watching deers, boars, mouflons and several birds, hot air balloon rides, as well as boat rides in the Alqueva dam with the possibility of water skiing. It is also possible to explore the surrounding areas thanks to our bicycle rental service. And there are many other activities available. Guests may join the hunting club to hunt partridges, hares, deers, mouflons and boars in the Herdade do Sobroso’s 1600 hectares of land. The restaurant serves traditional and tasty lunches and dinners. Some of our suggestions are roasted boar with green asparagus “migas” (a bread based traditional dish), Portuguese black pig with clams, wild duck rice in the oven with traditional Portuguese sausages, mouflon stew, dogfish soup with a poached egg or octupus rice with coriander. Don’t forget to taste our orange pie, the “toucinho do céu” (egg yolk and sugar tartlet), the “sericaia” (an egg, sugar and milk dessert) and many other traditional sweets.Guests may buy wines, olive oil, rosemary honey and jams in the Herdade do Sobroso’s cellar.
