A Lagosta Perdida is a modernised old stone house nestled in Montesinho, a small mountain village that time forgot hidden in the Montesinho National Park about 30 mins drive from Braganca. This ancient village, with its narrow cobbled streets and alleys and old stone houses could be a film set. Its location is stunning surrounding by pristine countryside. Robert, the... More

. Wonderful traditional house which has been renovated to boutique hotel standard, whilst retaining the charm and relaxed atmosphere of a friendly home. Our lofty ceilinged bedroom was beautiful with tea/coffee facilities, a huge bed and balcony. Our delectable dinner was served by convivial host (Robert) as was our generous and delicious breakfast. The village is extraordinary and enchanting, as... More

We have just stayed 4 nights in this charming guest-house/hotel. Beautifully and stylishly restored but never "stuffy". An attentive but relaxed and friendly welcome from Robert and his family - it felt like a very beautiful version of home! We did several walks in the stunning hills and valleys around Montesinho, meeting almost no-one. Robert provided detailed advice and maps,... More

It's like stepping back in time, this really characterful place has been restored lovingly and carefully by the present owners. The rooms have touches of wooden beams and remnants of old stone walls, and the whole place is charming. Our room was comfortably furnished, with a small seating area, and modern bathroom, equipped with kettle. However, this time of the... More

We were originally booked to stay in Lagosta Perdida for just one night, but both the beauty of the Montesinho National Park, the wonderful walks (very well mapped, and described by the Lagosta Perdida) made us stay another night....and in hindsight we should have stayed even longer. Lagosta Perdida feels like home, and Robert was a great host for us... More

We stayed at A Lagosta Perdida for one night on our road trip to Northern Portugal. Its a quirky place. We liked it! The owner, Robert, is an interesting guy and a great host. We had a nice evening meal on the patio covered with grape vines and a lovely breakfast in the morning. It would have been nice to... More

Not only did we love our bedroom which overlooked the pool, ping pong table and hills, we fell in love with the easy to find hiking trails and the absence of bugs on the trail. I'm not one for USB wacking but found ourselves a little more adventurous so wandered off the trails and still eventually found ourselves back to... More

A Lagosta Perdida is about a 30-40 minute drive from Braganca, situated in the small village of Montesinho (population 45). The inn is in a charming refurbished building. Our room was quite large, as was the bathroom. The bed was very comfortable. The common sitting areas throughout the building were tastefully and comfortably furnished, with a fireplace going in the... More

Contrary to other reviewers, we had no trouble finding the "Lost Lobster" - there is an indication on the road from Bragança to Spain which leads you up to the village of Montezinho, and the village itself is so small that you can hardly miss the place. First surprise: there is (huge) garage - something which you would definitely not... More

Located in tiny village of Montesinho, (only 45 residents), and within half an hour's easy drive through the country, from Braganca. From the outside, there's nothing spectacular about the hotel, but inside, very quaint, well restored, and with very comfortable rooms. The daily rate includes dinner and breakfast, and the owner ( Rob ) is just an amazing cook. Breakfast... More
