Casa do Gadanha was born from Michele Marques' dream to create a guesthouse imbued with the same love and dedication with which she runs her renowned restaurant in Estremoz, Mercearia Gadanha.
Casa do Gadanha is set in a renovated old mansion located on one of the most central streets of Estremoz. During the renovation, there was a preoccupation with preserving as many original aspects of the building as possible. These elements include Art Deco doors and colourful tiles, marble basins, iron grilles, ceramic pine cones, and even a section of wooden flooring in a star pattern.
Each of the 12 serene rooms at Casa do Gadanha is adorned with minimalist decor and inspiring Alentejan phrases, while the locally made complimentary amenities are a lovely touch.
On the rooftop, there’s a plunge pool and sun deck where you can enjoy panoramic views of Estremoz, known as the 'White City of Alentejo', and the surrounding Alentejo countryside.
The on-site restaurant, open to guests and non-guests, serves dishes emphasising local, organic ingredients and is known for its unique pizzas cooked in a wood-fired oven.
