Amid the olive groves and sheep pastures, design haven Dá Licença emerges like a mirage just outside Estremoz. A cluster of white cubist buildings includes nine stylish and contemporary guest rooms, an art gallery and a belvedere with 360–degree views. Dá Licença’s design puts a spotlight on the world–renowned marble from local quarries, with pieces in various hues defining the majestic circular main pool plus private lap pools, remarkable bathtubs carved from one sensuous slab in The Loft and The Rock suites, and even door handles.
Breakfast is served amid jasmine–lined private palapas and always includes fresh produce from the property and nearby farms. Orange juice will never taste the same after you have tried the freshly squeezed juice from Dá Licença’s groves.
