Wine Experience Hotel

The project of the Monverde Hotel was born from the Quinta da Lixa’s grapes and vineyards, from our conversations, our inspirations and aspirations. Initially it was meant to be a “big house” for our friends who also appreciate wine. Yet, as time went on, brick by brick, it began to grow, established roots, and became “a serious thing”.

Monverde is our face, it is a reflection of what Quinta de Lixa is today and of our passion for wine and for all that nature has to offer. We have a deep passion for wine and everything that revolves around it, for its mysteries, for everything we continuously learn about it, and for that which makes every sip different. Monverde is a chance for us to share our knowledge and our flavours with you, with the world, with each and every one.

We want your stay at Monverde to be truly unforgettable. We want it to involve all your senses, within the vineyard and in the wine, in the grape varieties, and within the overwhelmingly beautiful landscape.Please accept our invitation to embark upon this unique expedition. We are sure it will make you want to return again and again.

“Wine brings in its essence, what its mentor carries in his soul.”


The concept behind the rooms is to essentially integrate each one of them into the global concept of the hotel, which is to link accommodation with the exploration and production of wine, promoting direct contact with this cultural heritage and with the surrounding landscape.

The rooms are spacious and unpretentious in their execution, resulting in a charming space where contemporary aesthetics prioritised comfort, relax and intimate environment.

Casa Principal: With the main building recovered from a manor house built between 1947 and 1950, was intended only for services, as reception, restaurant, bar and breakfast room.
Next to this building, it´s possible to find the main event room, as well the Spa and outdoor pool.

Casa Nascente: Facing East and consisting of 14 rooms with purity and simplicity, it is the closest house to the Main Building. Outside, you can find century-old chestnut trees with a picnic spot; the organic garden, which Chef Carlos Silva and his team treat with affection; and the vines that, not supplying grapes for our wines, delight our guests when they are placed for breakfast at harvest time.

Casa Poente: With its location facing west, it consists of 16 rooms, one of them being the Porch, transformed into one of the family suites. Here, the rooms favor relaxation and the views to the vineyards. Its location on the property allows a more comprehensive view of the surrounding and the existing grape varieties.

Casa do Avesso: Recently restored, and located in the middle of the Avesso vineyard, it was designed to boost the wine experience for those who visit us: this is where the room for wine tourism activities, Adega Experimental, is located; part of the house is the tunnel of aromas, the sensory room, where the olfactory memories of our visitors are created and challenged; some of the rooms, with a private pool and overlooking the vineyards, even have a private wine cellar, so that wine is always an element present in your stay in Monverde.
