Dá Licença | Exclusief Boutique Art Hotel in Portugal

A unique intimate place with minimalist design and personalized luxury

The first time Vitor Borges and Franck Laigneau visited Outeiro das Freiras - nestled in the hills of the Portuguese Alentejo - they knew that this was the place to realize their dream: to open a hotel in which art and nature are the protagonists. Amid a vast landscape, they bought a cluster of 19th-century farmhouses and the surrounding 120-acre grounds filled with olive, fig, and cork trees.

The existing structures were architecturally renovated and transformed into a modern retreat without losing their traditional character. The all-white exterior is characterized by geometric openings and lines that seamlessly match the minimalist interior, where contemporary design is harmoniously combined with local craftsmanship and a beautiful art collection (of the owners themselves).

The hotel consists of several buildings that house the common (dining) areas, the art gallery as well as the 4 suites and 3 rooms. All rooms have an exceptional design and are furnished with elegance and style. The suites are very spacious and have impressive bathrooms, some of them with a bath carved out of a marble block, others with a private swimming pool. 

A series of large and small courtyards, intimate terraces, and two magnificent swimming pools offer guests space for both tranquility and privacy.

The service is awe-inspiring; the modest owners are fully at the service of their guests. Enjoy an exclusive romantic dinner in one of the private dining rooms, a massage in your own room, and every morning a fabulous breakfast served at your table... 

The impressive landscapes around Dá Licença, the harmony of colors in the interior, and the beautiful water bodies give a calming effect, just what you need in a place where inspiration and relaxation take center stage

Location Dá Licença

The rural region of Alentejo, in Portugal, is known for its vast plains with whitewashed medieval towns and olive groves. In the middle of these endless plains - in Outeiro das Freiras - is set Boutique Art Hotel Dá Licença. You can reach this magical place via a sloping road that runs through the surrounding 120-hectare estate which is integrated into a national ecological reserve with more than 13,000 olive trees. From the hotel, you can enjoy phenomenal views (and sunsets) of Estremoz, the Serra d'Ossa, and Evoramonte.

Dá Licença is only 7km from the beautiful Estremoz. The lower part of this town is lively and set up around a central square. Every Saturday morning, an authentic and colorful market with regional products and antiques takes place here. The medieval upper part is idyllic and home to numerous excellent restaurants. 

What to do and see in the area?

  • Visit Évora (40 minutes), the capital of Alentejo, a UNESCO World Heritage site. All the streets, squares, and monuments here exude a rich history.
  • Make a wine tasting. Alentejo has an abundance of wine domains, from classic to impressively modern. The rich wines with surprising colors and flavors are among the best in Portugal.
  • Various water sports can be practiced on Lake Alqueva (1h15). This largest reservoir in Europe has a whimsical waterline, and the surrounding nature is still unspoiled.
  • The west coast of Alentejo can be reached in 1.5 hours and offers something for everyone. White beaches invite you to relax, and nearby you can make dolphin trips. The rugged cliffs in the south, on the other hand, provide a beautiful setting for a walk in an endless time.
  • The Alentejo region is also rich in events and traditions where you can taste an authentic atmosphere and delicious local food!

The nearest airport is Lisbon, at a 1h30 driving distance.
