With eye-catching design, this all-suite resort opened on the outskirts of Evora last year. Each of the chic rooms mixes natural slate and stone with whitewashed walls and rolling views of the Alentejo hills. Guests can create their own blend at the winery – complete with personalised labels – or indulge in tutored tasting sessions of L'And's 2009 Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Alicante Bouschet. There's also the chance to try regional pork and cheese dishes at the restaurant, or relax in the spa with 'vinotherapy' treatments, using grape-based products.
L'And, Estrada Nacional 4, Herdade das Valadas, Evora, Alentejo, Portugal (00 351 266 242 400; l-andvineyards.com). Suites start at €170, including breakfast.
