Secret Places in Portugal

Heaven inside. Portugal to discover.

After the storm comes the calm… and we all hope for longer days, more sun, heat, fresh air, space, security and freedom. Thinking about this, and with so many hidden places in Portugal, we bring attention to some places where you can take refuge in the days ahead, with all safety requirements guaranteed.

Ventozelo Hotel & Quinta

Have you ever imagined sleeping in a wine balloon or an old barn? It seems out of a Hollywood movie, but it is possible. This is the experience that Ventozelo Hotel & Quinta has to offer. Ventozelo is not just a Hotel, it is an entire Quinta that has been transformed, maintaining the welcoming character of a neighbourhood of the Douro river. From wine tasting to agricultural activities, from several kilometers of walking routes to regional meals at the Cantina restaurant, Ventozelo Hotel & Quinta offers a set of experiences strongly linked to rurality, namely wine, gastronomy, landscape, history and knowledge from the Douro.

Herdade da Malhadinha Nova

There are thousands of perfect combinations, but few exceed chocolate and wine. And it can be very close to you. Herdade da Malhadinha Nova prepared an Easter program from March 31 to April 4 entirely dedicated to chocolate and wine. Over the five-day stay, guests will be able to participate in several activities related to chocolate, from pairing with wine, pastry workshops, chocolate and Easter folar (typical Portuguese sweet bread) and, of course, the famous Easter Egg hunt, to be coloured with your family.

Casa de São Lourenço

Breathe the fresh air of Serra da Estrela. Enjoy the landscape. Enjoy the silence. Casa de São Lourenço is the right answer. At 1250 meters above sea level, with a unique natural frame, and after years of neglect, the old inn that has Rogério de Azevedo’s signature in the architectural project, and Maria Keil’s interiors, is now the first and only mountain hotel of the luxury segment in Portugal. Still on the list of good news: in the panoramic restaurant São Lourenço, chef Manuel Figueira parades several very Portuguese flavours, recovering ancestral dishes and enjoying the products of the region. Difficult will be returning.

Martinhal Sagres

From spacious hotel rooms with balconies overlooking the sea to the large family houses with garden and balconies – some also with a private pool – Martinhal Sagres, the first hotel of the Group, contains the best of all worlds. A paradisaical location in the heart of the Costa Vicentina Natural Park and privileged access to Praia do Martinhal, associated with a set of luxury services designed in detail to make these the best family holidays ever, with privacy, quality and security.

Martinhal Cascais

Located in Quinta da Marinha, Martinhal Cascais offers a fantastic family vacation experience, combining proximity to the city of Lisbon, the historic relationship with the village and the mountains of Sintra, and the no less intimate relationship with the beauty of the beaches of Cascais or the stunning Guincho, ideal places for bike rides or other outdoor activities. Fans of the sport can also take advantage of the proximity of the Quinta da Marinha golf course to practise their swing. With spacious houses and hotel rooms, contemporary decor and access to a wide range of services, Martinhal Cascais was designed to offer any family a five-star quality and luxurious experience. Martinhal has also prepared (in all hotels), within the scope of the Group’s 10th-anniversary celebrations, a set of free programs and special activities to enjoy with the family throughout the Easter weekend.
