so it’s no surprise that this former blueberry farm turned inn on Portugal’s secluded Alentejo coast Uva do Monte, has a rustic countryside family suite with a very pink motif. Designed by the Independente Collective, the brainchild of four brothers — avid wanderers who envisioned a different concept of hospitality where travelers, as well as locals, could come together, sharing stories, experiences, and memories. they sought to bring back one of Portugal’s finest traditions: hospitality but added their own twist to it, with spaces that are as elegant as they are cool and as exclusive as they were open. Places where every visitor can feel like a part of the family. for more magical places like Uva do Monte, visit the Independente Collective. i’m definitely adding Uva do Monte to my must-visits.
