We loved the location away from the normal tourist track - and the pool and grounds were fantastic! Jack and his wife do an amazing job with giving lots of local day trips and tips for hiking and sight seeing. The high quality, and fresh cooked dinners were such a treat in the middle of our 3 week trip.

We were travelling through Portugal from Bilbao to the Algarve and this was our third stop en route. We had planned to visit Coimbra but we were so enchanted with the countryside and the schiste villages (of which we were previously unaware) that we spent the day exploring the stunning landscapes. Quinta da Palmeira is a gem! It is stylish,...

A little hard to find but well worth it. Rooms are beautifully decorated, the view is outstanding and the dinner excellent. About 30 minutes from Piodao, a Unesco World Heritage Site. The owner is Dutch and now makes Portugal his home. Go, you won't be disappointed.

getting to this beautiful hotel/guest home feels like you're in a european road rally with the narrow streets, winding your way through a couple of villages up up into the mountains. Once there the views are amazing, it is so peaceful, church bells are ringing and you can see across to other mountain villages dotting the hills. Our room was...

Quinta da Palmeira is cold; and I don't mean the temperature. Here we received our coldest reception during our two week stay in Portugal. The owner, Jack did not offer his name, but was ready to get down to business when we arrived; we had to ask. His wife shook our hands, but did not introduce herself. This is the...

“Really nice views, especially around sunset, from rooms towards the front of the hotel”

“The Panorama suite was a great experience, like a flat and on the 1st top Floor. Wide views. No elevator. There are also rooms outside the main house. No A/C. Windows can open and curtains can block daylight completely.”
