The Artists Residency

Ribatejo V6

The Artist Residency is a restored old convent, a gem from eras past, this stay promises an incredibly unique experience. 

Built in the sixteenth century, one thing that has not changed about the convent are its exceptional views over Leziria and the Tagus River. Here, the traditional structure of the building is juxtaposed with modern art and furnishings, creating stunning interiors and a feeling of the past being at one with the present. 

In residence at all times (unless requested otherwise) are esteemed artists and co-hosts, who are usually academics, who will be around to converse with guests and occasionally put on exhibitions showcasing their work. 

Guests such as Jeremy Hackett, Stuart Husband and Patrick Grant, amongst others, have come to stay. They will spend most of their time in the studio, depending on how much interaction you want with them. The Artist Residency sleeps twelve, featuring six double rooms and six bathrooms. 

All rooms are done up in crisp whites with simple colour schemes in keeping with the rest of the building. Perhaps the most laudable feature of the converted convent however is the stunning outdoor swimming pool, with unrivalled views over Leziria and situated amongst the green grounds of the building, this pool is exceptional. 

Buffet-style breakfast is served daily, and in order to keep the cream interiors fresh, cleaners come in daily for four hours. The Getaway Collection’s famous concierge service is also available, and our hand-picked concierges will make your every wish their command. 

The Artist Residency provides a truly individual and unforgettable stay, and the memory of the views from the terrace will stay imprinted on your mind long after your holiday is over.
