FERRY & HOTEL
Pousada de Palmela, Palmela
Portugal > Lisboa > PALMELA
The quaint village of Palmela is a half hour drive south from Lisbon and is in the heart of one of Portugal's richest wine growing areas at the edge of the Arrábida mountain range. It centres around a 12thC fortified castle high on a hill from where impressive views of the surrounding plains and national park extend to Libson on a good day. Adjoining the castle, the old cloisters and beautiful architecture of a converted convent have been cleverly integrated to create one of the finest Pousadas. Spacious bedrooms are air conditioned and there is a good restaurant where menus feature traditional Portuguese dishes and delicacies. Superior rooms which are larger and have a view of the village, mountains or distant sea are also available.
There is a £30 supplement per night per double room to stay on Sat from 1/4-30/10 & £18 at all other times.
