A romantic palace with French formal gardens in Portugal Built in 1887, the Portuguese palace is nestled within 5Ha of French-style botanical gardens with impressive water features, a swimming pool and 2 guest villas. The botanical gardens were designed by the French landscape architect Jean-Claude Nicholas Forestier, renowned for his work on the Champ de Mars gardens below the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and the Parque de María Luisa in Seville, restored in 2010 by spanish landscape architect Javier Mariategui. Rumored to have connections to Spanish royalty, it's said the property was often frequented by King D. Alfonso XII of Spain who was a guest of Elvira Barrera widow of D. Luis Olleros y Mancilla who ordered the construction of “Villa Justa”, it’s said that Elvira was most likely to be the King Spanish lover. Thereafter frequently called or know as “Quinta da Espanhola”, which translates to “The Spanish lady farm”. The French-style palace was fully renovated in 2015, restoring much of the palace's original period detail, including the stained-glass windows handcrafted by the world renowned Maison Maumejean founded in 1860, wood flooring, and ornate ceiling cornicing. The Mistress’s Palace has 8 en-suite bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, with several elegantly appointed guest rooms. The entire estate spans 9Ha and comes with an equestrian complex with 30 stalls and a jumping track. This incredible property is 2 hours from Lisbon, set near the Spanish border and just a 5 minute drive from the UNESCO-listed town of Elvas, considered one of Portugal's hidden gems. 
Equestrian facilities with own house, 30 boxes, harness room, haystacks, warehouse, uncovered riding arena/ obstacle course, covered electric guide, and various padocks. 
Located 3km from the centre of Elvas, 20km from Badajoz, and 207 km from Lisbon (~2h).
