The magnificent hilltop setting of the Pousada Palmela hotel, part of a medieval castle, provides breathtaking views of the surrounding area

Formerly a Convent of the Order of Santiago, nestled in a medieval castle, the Pousada of Palmela has retained its majesty and the dignity of its former use, whilst offering luxurious accommodation. The cloisters remain intact within the surrounding gallery and are now used as a haven of peace and tranquillity for guests to enjoy. The former convent rooms are now sitting rooms and the convent refectory is now the hotel dining room.

The Hotel Palmela is situated 40 kms from Lisbon and its hilltop setting offers breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding area.

This historic Hotel Castelo De Palmela has 28 rooms, including 7 superior rooms and 7 suites. All rooms have en-suite bathroom, air conditioning/heating, minibar, hairdryer, safe, telephone, cable TV and internet access.

The Pousada Palmela is set in a charming hilltop town centred round the castle which was built by the Moors following their reconquest in the 12th century. It lies at the heart of one of Portugalís famous wine producing regions.

The Pousada Palmela is an effortlessly elegant hotel with attentive, efficient and knowlegable staff and an accomplished kitchen. The atmosphere is relaxed and calm so it is a good place to recharge surrounded by magnificent architecture and scenery. The suites are well worth the extra cost and dinner in the restaurant should be enjoyed at least once during your stay. Front desk is welcoming and full of good advice about what to see and do in the area. I'll be recommending it to all my friends and family.

My Wife and I stayed again in this very nice hotel, we fully recommend the Great view, great history and so close to Lisbon. The staff are very friendly and we always feel welcome here as for any other Pousada in Portugal. We can fully recommend this Hotel.

I had stayed here before with a wine tasting group but this time with my wife. The staff at reception were great , the room comfortable and of course the views were to die for . We had dinner in the main restaurant which was very good so we would recommend this pousada
