A charming 19th century «Palacete» in the heart of Portugal was recently brought back to life from ruins into a Unique Luxury B&B.
It is located in a small pre historic village 230 km from Lisbon and 160 km from Porto, Though it might seem a bit far away from «capitals», it is quite easy to get to. On the territory of the hotel there are several water springs with wonderful quality water, which is beeing adored by the as more than 100 years old olive trees and camelias the house is on the National Highway 230, at a 12 km distance there is a railways station, where daily stops the train Madrid-Lisbon, there are several ways to get to the village by perfect portuguese roads and there is an airdrome in Viseu with regular flyights from Lisbon, express buses from Lisbon,etc..
The hotel plot measures 4.889,00 sq.m, has an interesting garden design. In 2010 when the house changed the owner, it was in a very bad condition, so it was necessary to clean out the greater part of the interior and so far only the granite skeleton was left. But the house mantained its historical image and style, though acquired a harmonical addition now coated with slate tiles. The windows and doors kept their original design but received modern quality and shine. The interior of the house is all new but highly respects tradition, using best contemporary materials, noise and termal isolation, at the same time with traditional ones, such as rack ceilings, old fashioned high skirting boards, molding and fretwork and so on.

The SPA, covered heated swimming pool with a winter garden, jacuzzi, water fall, sauna, turkish bath with an ice cascade, gym and SPA treatment rooms with a small beauty salon occupy the area of 500 sq.m.

The venue is equiped with a separate professional kitchen to make it absolutely autonomous
