Paraiso Escondido

São Teotónio

For those feeling more energetic, there are lovely walks through the eucalyptus and cork trees surrounding the property.

The concept is “keep it simple”, so that nature and the surroundings can be the leading star of the project.

The mixture of the stunning countryside and the nearby beaches is the magical combination that helps bring it to life. “We invite you to come and share this, using all your senses to appreciate the gift of what nature can give us”.

Enjoy the simplicity of the beautiful and breathtaking surroundings in 20 acres/8 hectares of private land with breathtaking views. “This truly is a special part of Portugal”.

We also aim to provide quality and luxury throughout our concept. This includes:

Personalised Service

Our food: We personally select our produce from trusted suppliers who practice the same philosophy of eco-friendly, sustainable and organic.
We also grow and use fruit, vegetables and herbs from our own organic vegetable garden in our meals.

Our Bed linen: Is made in Portugal from 100% percale cotton, using 200 thread count. Percale is a closely woven, plain weave spun fabric made from both carded and combed yarns and Percale sheeting is the finest available. The high thread count – above 180 – gives the fabric a soft, silk-like feel.

Our room Amenities: We’ve chosen our room amenities from London’s luxury bath and body connoisseurs, Molton Brown’s Eco Green Park range.
We want our guests to enjoy the luxury of the Molton Brown brand and Green Park being 100% Eco-Friendly, Exotic and Sustainable fits perfectly within our concept. Born in Mozambique, Berny Serrão first thought of the southern Alentejo as her “stolen Africa”. The vast open landscapes with rolling hills and clear, unpolluted starry skies. The long hot summer months and wonderful light all year round. It all makes for a magical backdrop for the wild and almost virgin coastline with amazing unspoiled beaches.

The idea to turn their country house into a small tranquil retreat first came to Berny and Glenn in 2008 and since then the couple have been working on this dream. They felt it was important to share their love of nature and their special place in Alentejo that they call ‘Paraiso Escondido’ or ‘Hidden Paradise’.
Their dream became a reality when they opened the doors to the world in November 2014.

It’s the perfect location to slow down, relax and reconnect with the beautiful things that life has to offer. “Here, our guests will find pure nature, delicious food, and great company. Mix this together with enjoyable, inspiring and healthy experiences and our guests have a magical way to become grounded and enriched on a physical, emotional and spiritual level, leaving them feeling re-charged and in a much better place”.
