Paraiso Escondido is a Secluded Paradise in the South of Portugal – Perfect for Slowing Down

Paraiso Escondido means “hidden paradise” in Portuguese. This family-run hotel with only 10 rooms is a real hidden gem with panoramic views of the wild Alentejo countryside. Imagine the scent of eucalyptus, the chirping of cycads, and the warm rays of the sun on your skin. It is the perfect place to slow down and enjoy the beautiful things in life. Owner Berny Serrao, who grew up in Mozambique and traveled the world with her husband before settling here, has found her “stolen Africa.”

Living in harmony with nature is the driving force behind this beautiful property set among rolling hills. From the main building, large windows open onto terraces overlooking the breathtaking landscape. The luxurious rooms and suites feature wooden furniture and fine fabrics. Soft, cheerful colors and African and Asian artifacts define the interiors. Contemporary design combines with a neo-colonial style. All rooms have their own terrace. Those who want extra privacy choose the detached bungalows on stilts, which are just a five-minute walk from the main building.
