Sophisticated country living in a boutique hotel that feels more like a grand home. We love the traditional architecture of the historic farm and the distinctive, individual design of each room.
Quinta da Palmeira Coimbra, Portugal
Stylish and historic, this large villa estate has been transformed into a polished and elegant version of it’s former self. Built in the late 1800’s this authentic farm villa was used for generations as an agricultural estate and it’s groves of mature olive and fruit trees remain. Located in the beautiful central mountain district of Portugal’s Serra do Acor nature preserve, the villa occupies an enviable spot in which to enjoy this protected area.
Divided into a total of eight rooms there are two junior suites with full baths and four rooms apart from the main house including one full apartment with a kitchen, all with stylish contemporary updates. Some boast bold romantic colors, others are more muted and fresh with polished wood and modern accents. Each room has its own personality and character with elegant and stylish decor and where no two are alike.
With the traditional whitewashed and red tile exteriors and meticulously nurtured gardens and groves, this hotel looks as it must have a hundred years ago but with a fresh modern update. The pool and terrace are a great place to lounge and enjoy the spectacular views from the estate.
While you’re here, the on site restaurant serves up gourmet cuisine from locally sourced farms accompanied by some of the regions best wines. The selections are very refined for such a rustic area and are enjoyed all the more when paired with the famous open air parties known as arraiais with traditional dance and music. Or you can hang out in the lounge for a peaceful spot to enjoy a drink in front of the fireplace.
