Portugal: Fashion designer Christian Louboutin plans to build a 21-room inn in Alentejo, Portugal.

Christian Louboutin has owned a holiday home in Alentejo, Portugal for many years and now plans to open his first hotel and restaurant.

He said his plans for the hotel are: "Simple outside; impactful inside. I'm buying furniture for it, I'm collecting ceramics, I'm buying aboriginal art I would like to put in there."

Construction is scheduled to start in April, and the fashion designer has entrusted architect Madalena Caiado to make sure it blends in with local buildings, while the interiors will reflect Louboutin's eclectic taste and penchant for "cosy" environments, including for the restaurant. He intends for it to be his canteen, and it will serve in-season, organic cuisine, especially fish and local cheeses.

He hopes it will be ready in time for the 2020 summer season.
