Hotel Description

When a hotelier is working with a gorgeous 17th-century castle on a hill, presiding over the rolling vineyards and a whitewashed little town on the Atlantic coast south of Lisbon, it doesn’t take much to turn it into a satisfying hotel experience. (Even if that hotelier is the Portuguese government, who built all these pousadas in the first place.) Those searching for a high-concept project at the avant-garde of modern hotel design should click their way elsewhere, but if you’re satisfied to forgo funky chairs and plasma screens for the casual countryside elegance of an excellent pousada, you’ll find Palmela a virtual steal.

The town of Palmela, just half an hour or so outside of Lisbon, is something of a destination unto itself, and the prime attraction is the very castle that houses the pousada. Venturing out, you’ll find pretty white homes dotting the steep hillside, plus a handful of picturesque churches, spanning centuries and architectural styles, that attest to Palmela’s rich history. If that all sounds too pedestrian, there’s any number of alternatives, from golf to parasailing to paint-balling, if that’s your thing.

One thing that’s pretty much everyone’s thing is the excellent food typically on offer at Portugal’s pousadas. Here, it’s along the same lines as what you’ll find in Lisbon, with an emphasis on fresh seafood and of course good, local wine. Afterward, a breezy, furnished terrace beneath the massive stone arches of the castle makes for a tempting spot to laze about and do some digesting — whether of the food, the stunning views, or both.

How to get there:

Pousada De Palmela is located 33 minutes away, by car, from Lisbon International Airport. Please contact CustomerService@TabletHotels.com for more information or assistance with transfers.
