    The old (and original) wing houses 23 individually decorated rooms and features rich interiors, frescoes and antique furnishings – evocative of the hotel’s grand history (the Duke of Wellington once used the building as his headquarters during the Peninsula War).

    The property has a new, more modern wing too, also with 23 rooms. The décor here is more stripped back, but no less comfy, with views to the grounds and surrounding peaks. Which wing ticks your boxes?

    An 18th-century palace situated in the historic village of Lousã, this stylish getaway is perfect for exploring the craggy mountains and green valleys of the area. The original wing features a classic style while the new wing is contemporary – the best of both worlds. The property is 23 kilometres from the riverfront city of Coimbra and an hour from coastal Figueira da Foz.

    Activities

    Unwind with a good book in the picturesque gardens, or take a refreshing dip in the seasonal pool (particularly inviting after a day spent exploring the surrounding area). Several hiking trails of varying difficulties snake through the countryside, where you’ll find local wildlife such as deer and wild boar, and natural wonder such as waterfalls.

    The hotel is excellently placed for those wanting to discover the Schist Villages, a series of historic settlements with unique slate buildings, many of which are now centres for traditional arts and crafts.
