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...

A bit hard to find but well worth the search. Quite boutique hotel with beautiful gardens, clean, spacious rooms (only 8 rooms in total). In early June we were served dinner, as well as breakfast, on the outdoor terrace. Food was very good and an exceptional wine list was offered.

It's a beautiful property and we stayed in a room with a wonderful mountain view. The breakfast and dinner were very good. The beauty care products in the room are top. Our junior suite was great and let us really enjoy our anniversary. The surroundings are great to explore: Piódão, Fraga da Pena, Mata da Margaraça, Benfeita...

Splendid place in the middle of the mountain. We had a nice suite with a large bathromm and bath tub. It is very well decorated, simple and modern. The room was painted fresh so it still smelled a bit too strong. This is not a cheap hotel, slighly overpriced for this area, but quality is very good, probably the best...

Scheduling a 5/yearly college friends reunion was extremely though. Luckily, a friend told me about the wonderful Quinta da Palmeira in Rural Portugal. My first contact with the owner, Jack, was directly superb! He assisted me with everything...... planning the historical and architectural field trips (like the Roman excavations, Serra do Bucaço and Serra des Estrela), but also the night...

We had a fantastic and amazing one week stay at Quinta da Palmeira. Such a warm welcome by Jack and his wife Ana who are practically running this place by their own. Very friendly yet not overwelming hosts. Excellent service by Jack himself who finally realised his dream by renovating and opening this lovely hotel 3 years ago. The Panorama...

“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.”
