Vidago Palace Hotel *****
The secular splendor of modern luxury
Located just one hour from Porto this landmark Palace originally opened in 1910. Today under the guidance of the renowned Portuguese architect Siza Vieira, the resort was reborn - the renovation focuses on preserving the architectural heritage of the building while bringing the facilities into the 21st century. Vidago Palace has reopened in the Summer of 2010 as a member of the Leading Small Luxury Hotels of the World and takes its place as one of the great historical European resorts. 70 rooms and suites, one of the best 18 hole golf courses in Europe - Vidago Palace is an IAGTO member - and a world-class Spa with 20 treatment rooms in a new modernist wing. The Spa benefits from the natural mineral waters of Vidago springs as well as the luxury brand of Aromatherapy Associates and MCCM Medical Cosmetics.
"With beautiful gardens and charming outdoor areas, this is a great option for those looking for an enchanted palace."
