Once Upon a time, there was a family home, with more than 250 years in the same family, converted into a luxurious and intimate hotel. With stunning views to the Arrabida Nature Park, this boutique hotel dates back to the XVII century and has kept the soul of a “home”. At Casa Palmela you can choose from the main house to the garden house, or even to the villas. All rooms are different from each other but all spacious, luxurious and confortable. One of the greatest characteristics of this hotel is the personalized attention given by the staff. They are local experts that create memorable experiences during your stay. The restaurant Zimbral couldn’t have a better location and a better view. While waiting for a delicious Portuguese dish, the guests are enjoying the mountains and the light of this beautiful place, drinking a glass of wine and tasting local specialties. In the property you can spend your time by doing many activities: You can start your day participating in a yoga or pilates class. You can go horseback riding, cycling or hiking. You are able to book a massage in the spa; program a visit to the vineyards and cellars in the area, or even paint your own Portuguese tile and take it home as a souvenir. From 10-40 minutes driving from the hotel, there are amazing golf courses open to our guests. To end this trip, we strongly recommend a visit to the Arrabida Convent guided by our staff. It is an exquisite place, completely unspoiled where the time seems to have stopped. For sea lovers, the coast is only 10 minutes driving and you will be able to spend a day surrounded by white sand beaches and Christal waters. If you’re lucky, the dauphins might pay you a very pleasant visit. Stay with us and enjoy and enjoy this luxurious and unforgettable place.
