Portugal: Lisbon and the Silver Coast - Accommodations
In Cascais, we'll be staying for 4 nights in the Grande Real Villa Italia Hotel. Formerly the residence of exiled Italian kings, this 5-star hotel faces the Atlantic Ocean and is a short walk from the historical center of Cascais. Decorated with a blend of classical and contemporary styles, the hotel features an outdoor pool, a thalassa spa offering face and body treatments, gym, free Wi-Fi throughout the property and an on-site restaurant serving innovative Portuguese and Mediterranean dishes. Each of the 124 modern rooms includes a flat-screen LCD TV, phone, in-room safe, air conditioning, and a luxurious bathroom decorated with Italian marbles and Venetian mosaics, as well as a bathtub, a separate shower, hair dryer, and boutique Castelbel toiletries.
In Obidos, we'll be staying for 4 nights at the four star Casa das Senhoras Rainhas, which appropriately translates to House of the Queens. Casa das Senhoras Rainhas is a small, luxuriously restored medieval villa located within the city walls of Portugal's prettiest town. The hotel has 10 elegant rooms decorated with antiques, most with balconies or patios; impeccable, personalized service; fine restaurant, honor system bar, cozy living room with fireplace, tile decorated and candlelit patio and a perfect location. A basket with fruit, chocolate, home-baked goods and the regional cherry liqueur specialty is delivered daily to each room.
Upon return to Lisbon, we will spend one night in the historical center of the city, at the new five-star urban hotel Portobay Liberdade Hotel, located right in the center of Lisbon, among many boutique shops, restaurants and cafes. The hotel features a spa, a swimming pool, a gym, a Turkish steam bath, a terrace, a restaurant and a bar. The 98 stylishly appointed rooms are equipped with upscale amenities, including a private veranda, air conditioning, 40 inch LCD smart TVs, double USB charger, room safe, mini bars, tea and espresso facilities, complimentary Wi-FI Internet access, complimentary newspapers, and modern bathrooms with make-up mirrors, bathrobes, slippers and Ritual Bath toiletries.
In the highly unlikely event that our original accommodations must be changed, the alternative accommodations will be a hotel of equal or higher standard. No change will made to the cost of the tour.
