We just spent the weekend at Cooking and Nature emotional hotel. First location, close to Fatima (religious tourism), from here you can visit many small historical cities, visit some of the nicest underground caverns in the country or simply enjoy natures walking or with a bike (supplied by the hotel). The hotel itself is very nice, great effort has been...

After 2 days heat in the Douro valley, the cooler climate of the surrounding was very much welcome. Located at the border of a national park, this b&b offers a quietness in a very stylish setting! Great swimming pool surrounded by old olive trees, utmost friendly staff, spacious and well decorated rooms and a good breakfast in the morning. Dinner...

The hotel is located in the countryside near a small village. The hotel has exciting décor and serves a varied breakfast. The hotel has a beautiful outdoor area with pool and sun loungers. The pool is located so one feels that in the middle of the nature. The location is perfect to see the nearby caves and several of portugal...

The room was not really 100% to our liking, with a view on the street/parking and open bathroom. We only stayed for 1 night, so couldn't enjoy all the activities, but we followed the cooking class, which we liked. We also enjoyed the pool while having a drink from the honesty bar. Overall, there was a very quiet atmosphere and...

It's a really nice hotel in the mountains. The food is excellent and the cooking class is very fun. It is hard to arrange other activities and everything must be arranged 24-48 hours in advance . There are omelettes made to order but all other breakfast foods are cold buffet. We didn't do the other activities and used it as...

I loved my experience in the cooking and nature! The hotel interior design is a big surprise even in the little details. The decoration is creative, simple and unique. The staff is very proactive and friendly, helping you in all that you need during your visit. But what I loved the most was the programs that you can do, we...

Afar the noise of modern life, yet with all it's comforts, you will have an unique experience. The hotel lies in a valley of Serra d'Aire e Candeeiros like a toddler in a cradle. Beside the usual five-star-facilities one would expect (like SPA, pool and all that), the general attention here made me feel like i had birthday. I was...

We stayed here for a couple of nights and the room, service and place was just how we imagine it. The kids also enjoyed the kid's room... also nice breakfast. Very quiet place. We didn't had any dinner here so... no feedback about it.
