The Pousada da Serra da Estrela is located inside the Parque Natural da Serra da Estrela, in Covilhã. The breathtaking views are of snowcapped mountains or the greenery of continental Portugal's highest mountains at an altitude of 1,993 m. Inside the building, the walls are pristine white, the ceilings are high and the traditional tiles are original and have been restored. You will also see fabulous old iron-and-wood elevators. Visit this work of the renowned architect Souto Moura, who restored the main structure of the old Serra da Estrela sanctuary.. In summer, you can enjoy the outdoor swimming pool and take a stroll through the gardens. The Pousada offers free parking, a restaurant and a bar and a game room. The rooms each have a flat-screen TV and Wi-Fi, all with elegant decor.

Lisbon, Portugal27 contributions14 helpful votes
We stayed with our two kids in an upper turret room. The room is big and perfectly allows an extra bed and a crab for the baby. It was a great experience. The staff is very friendly and professional and helped this vacations to be even better. The swimming pools are clean and good (the indoors swimming pool needs reservation). It's a challenge to enter in the outdoor swimming pool. :) The restaurant is excelent, with a great variety in both breakfast and dinner. The location is very good, a few minutes away from Covilhã and very near to the best spots of Serra da Estrela. We will definitely return.

This place is gorgeous. With a lot of attractions and natural amenities and history. Being just reconstructed and turned into this master piece is great. I've passed through it when it was an old building, it's just magnificent. Most definitely I will stay again.
