I don’t think I’ve ever arrived at a hotel as blissfully silent as São Lourenço do Barrocal. It is busy and booked out, yet, other than the odd moo from one of the cows that roam the surrounding farmland, or the soft jazz that plays in the bar and restaurant, I am ensconced in the tranquil sound of nothing.

The term ‘minimal intervention’ gets trotted out a lot these days with regard to such projects; at Barrocal, it’s the real deal. Its 57 rooms and suites are the epitome of simple elegance.
