    Originally derived from the Portuguese word for 'rest’ (Pousar), the term ‘Pousada’ has become synonymous with luxury hotel accommodation in beautifully restored historical buildings in Portugal. We have selected the best Portuguese hotels which offer a relaxing holiday with an added extra, either staying in a restored Castle, Palace or similar, a location with amazing views or, hotels designed for families.

    Our website will appeal to visitors who enjoy stunning beaches, world class golf courses, national parks, historical cities or lively seaside towns. We offer a selection of handpicked hotels and resorts including the superb Pousadas of Portugal, for both couples and families, throughout this beautiful country. For those who wish to combine a visit to neighbouring Spain, we have added the iconic Paradores - Spain.
