9-bedroom boutique hotel
Elegantly renovated country manor
Only when you book with Chic
Set in Beira’s rolling green hills, the Quinta da Palmeira is an absolute gem: an elegantly renovated 19th-century country manor that perfectly balances traditional and contemporary.
The gorgeous white façade gives way to a surprising, stylish interior that would look more at home in a London penthouse than this quiet corner of Portugal.
You’re in the heart of the countryside, nestled between two national parks so there are plenty of lovely walking options and there's even kayaking nearby if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous. But realistically you could quite easily spend all day in the shade of an orange tree, or just beside the pool with a favourite book. Enjoy.
A good breakfast is included in most room rates (see detail below) and is served each morning and can be enjoyed out on the terrace in warmer weather.
The lovely restaurant overlooks the garden and serves a delicious seasonal menu at lunch and dinner (must be arranged in advance). There is also a bar by the pool – conveniently placed for a cooling drink.
Rather than understated whitewashed walls, the 9 bedrooms come with bold, hot colour combinations and dramatic furnishings. All of the 9 en-suite rooms at Quinta da Palmeira were planned and decorated with the greatest of care in order to provide you with a sense of comfort and elegance. The bedrooms have private en-suite bathrooms, a bath and/or shower for 2 people, really comfy beds with orthopaedic mattresses, central heating, telephone and free WiFi and satellite LCD-TV.
Quinta da Palmeira has a lovely outdoor pool which is surrounded by colourful orange and olive trees. Guests can relax in the public lounge area, or read a book in the adjoining reading room. There are plenty of things to do and see in the nearby area including visits to the waterfalls in the ´Fraga da Pena`, walks in the 'Mata d Magaraça' and visiting 'Piódão', one of the prettiest historic villages in Portugal. Horse riding or mountain biking through the local villages and woods is a lovely way to spend a morning.
Enjoy the new luxurious private Spa with Jacuzzi, sauna, hammam and a cosy fireplace.
