Named as one of the Leading Hotels of the World, the Vidago Palace is also exceedingly popular with guests. It has a five-star rating on TripAdvisor and recently received a Travellers Choice Award in 2018. Situated just outside the charming little village of Vidago, it’s a majestic building surrounded by tranquil greenery. Built in 1910, the hotel stands as a perfect blend of modern luxury and traditional Belle Époque chic. It’s on-site 18-hole golf course, fine-dining and the fact that it is the eighth best luxury hotel in Portugal mean it’s the ultimate in opulence.
Surrounded by 100 hectares of woods, parkland and thermal spas, the hotel is the perfect retreat for guests seeking pure relaxation. Take a dip in either the indoor or outdoor pool, go for a reinvigorating spa treatment, play a round of golf on the adjacent course or simply relax in the exquisite rooms. Pay lavish attention to your tastebuds in one of the four restaurants, where the highly acclaimed and award-winning chef Vitor Matos is at the reins of the menu of gastronomic delights.
The small village of Vidago is set in the heart of northern Portugal, full of quaint local restaurants and shops, as well as the chance to explore the magnificent Tamega River. Flowing gently past the town and continuing further on through the north of Portugal, it’s a beautiful spot to stop by. A little further on, you can visit the old Roman city of Chaves which borders Spain. Explore the old fortifications, stroll along the banks of the Tamega and over the romantic 12th-century Roman bridge.
After a day spent walking, you can retire to one of the bars or restaurants for a refreshing drink or to sample the regional favourite – cured presunto hams. Nearby, you can visit the natural hot springs which originally made this town a desireable settlement. The water in the springs is some of the hottest in Europe, in some places reaching up to 70°C. The region – like the hotel – is centered on a quieter pace of life with a focus on recreation and relaxation.
