What we like about this property

We love the bold commitment and terrific execution of such disparate styles that coexist here. The concept of an emotional connection to design and environment and the confident attention to detail all housed in a peaceful faraway valley works beautifully. The only problem? It would be very hard to choose just one room….

Description

Located in one of the most beautiful valleys in central Portugal in the heart of the Serras de Aire e Candeeiros Natural Park, this boutique hotel concept was born from a love of the land, the charm and warmth of personal hospitality and food and, most certainly bold design. Nestled into the rural hamlet of Alvados, this modern installation has been executed with incredible confidence and quirky but flawless style.

Designed to elicit a specific emotion, each of the twelve rooms is linked to a classic film and no two are even remotely alike. From sleek and chic “mod Bond” to Hemingway-esque safari style, each is an unexpected delight with finely tuned bespoke detail and all are positioned to take in the stunning unspoiled countryside. The communal areas are bright and fun with an eclectic collection of vintage and contemporary features that are welcoming, chic and comfortable. 

With a passionate focus on food and culinary creativity, the hotel serves some of the finest locally sourced and seasonal Portuguese cuisine and hosts cooking lessons with fresh ingredients from the garden. The dining areas are convivial and fun spaces to relax and enjoy a great meal and lounge at the bar. The spa facilities include D’Aire baths, a relaxation room and a massage room and there are two outdoor swimming pools perfectly calibrated to the environment and several common areas that intimately connect with the stunning landscape.

This is a great fusion of bold design, delicious culinary expression and appreciation of nature.  

Bringing together the community, we encourage Boutique Homes guests to join the coordinated neighborhood get-together with many houses, many snacks, many conversations. Meet the village people, taste their dishes! Info & pricing

AROUND

Situated in the remote and quiet Natural Park of Serras de Aire e Candeeiros, the hotel is a rural paradise best explored on foot and the famously peaceful Valley of Canada can be reached in a short walk.

Lisbon is just over an hour’s drive.

    The boutique hotel is in a small village in the middle of the countryside, but not too far away from Lisbon. It has been built in 2012 and earned the distinction “revelation of the year 2013” in Portugal. Its beauty is spectacular, the interior decorator did a great job and had a lot of phantasy. This 4star hotel offers everything to relax for stressed people, an unforgettable memory for Honeymooners, and also features for families with little kids.
    Besides the interior decoration, I liked the fatboy cushions around the pool, the cooking lesson for dinner, the great view from our room, the GPS for our walking tours and the campfire lit every night.

  • Jose, July 20, 2014

    I’ve stayed at the hotel on the 12th July and I had a cooking lesson and also a massage. All was perfectly organized and on schedule.
    The hotel architecture is very modern but uses traditional materials like cork. The silence is fantastic. I was given the Avatar room with a huge window over the hill and olive trees. Unfortunatly, we have to stay some more days to enjoy all available services like outdoor pool, indoor pool in winter, bike tracks, outside fire place, among others

    I was very excited about going to this hotel and I was not disappointed on arrival! Travelling with my husband and two boys, we had booked a family room and were delighted when shown to our Safari/adventure room. Absolutely stunning! The bunk beds were near the entrance to the room, then the bathroom with a bathtub in the middle overlooking the pool, and at the back of the room a double bed with an amazing view of the nearby hills. The rest of the hotel was just as beautiful, the common rooms, the kitchen, the outside space…we even had a campfire lit every night outside near the pool. We dined one evening at the hotel, opting for the cookery lesson for all four of us, and it was lovely. The staff are so friendly, the chef, John, was charming and encouraged our eldest (aged 13) to take part in most of the cooking, and the meal was delicious. This is definitely one of the best places we have ever been to, calm, modern, luxurious and friendly atmosphere.

    Secluded location in a gorgeous natural park, lanscape of hills covered in terrasses and olive trees….and in the middle of this idyllic setting, a small hotel, very nice welcoming people, imaginative and quirky design, great views from rooms, surprisingly big spa with several pools, very friendly interesting and lazy (all the hard preparing work is already done for you, you only have to mix the ingredients…wish I had such a fairy at home!) cooking classes of local dishes. Also delicious, fresh and copious breakfast.
    Fabulous place, can only recommend it!
