Casa das Penhas Douradas is quite stunning. It sits near the top of a twisting mountain road, overlooking what appears to be much of central Portugal. The setting is spectacular. The hotel has three wings. We stayed in a room with a little verandah, which opened on to a lawn which is dotted with cushions and beanbags for lazy late... More

We were truly surprised to see such a warm welcome and gastronomic quisine in such a remote rural location. The place is designed with an "alpine" feel snd touch. To our taste, it was too much cement and wood and too little light inside, but this is more than compensated for by unbelievably friendly and caring staff and management, excellent... More

The hotel is indeed as nice as you would expect from their website... the atmosphere is tranquil, relaxed, the staff helpful and honest. It's amazing how they realized this project with inexpensive materials and yet created a surrounding of design and homeliness. You can swim in the heated indoor pool, enjoy the sauna, lend DVDs and watch them in your... More

It's gonna be quick since it's one of the best place ever for a resting and quite stay because of magic ingredients: The place itself is playing with multiple cosy and well decorated spaces in where you would like to spend a life (providing that you like timeless neo modern 50's and woody ambiance), plus SPA amenities. All personnel working... More

It is not an easy place to get to, the road is rather treacherous, but....... once you get there, it is fantastic, the staff is very helpful, We stayed in a suite, and loved it. It is huge and the decoration very pleasant, inspiring a feeling of tranquility and well being. The restaurant is amazing with a special gourmet dinner... More

After driving up the mountain from Manteiga in the fog, we arrived at the hotel for a 2 night stay. As soon as we entered the building we were surprised by the design and details in everything. The rooms are not very large, but so functional and big enough. The Spa and pool is very well kept and we had... More

We stayed for one night at the Casa das Penhas Douradas, and the rooms, the environment, the food, the service and the walks were simply unsurpassable. Perfect place to relax and enjoy the Serra da Estrela and the Penhas Douradas, with plenty of walks to take around the hotel.

If you consider giving yourself a luxury treatment in the calm Star Mountains of Portugal do consider Casa das Penhas Douradas. First of all you have the best service I ever encounted. When coming back to your room they prepare small surprises like folding your clothes, lighting candles and dimming the light so you can enjoy the small refreshments and... More

This is a family hotel and the service is very good. They try to let us feel as at home. Very nice views and the rooms are quite confortable (but as it is a mountain hotel build on a old house lots of stairs). The breakfast and the avalability of snacks all over the day is a plus. Most of... More
