About the Location

This property is located in Mafra, Portugal, close to the villages of Gradil and Barras. This is a rural area, so car hire is recommended.

Lisbon airport is around half an hour’s drive. Portugal’s capital city is picturesque and easy to explore on foot or by tram - a great day out for fans or history or architecture. Take a trip to one of the city center’s art galleries, explore the family-friendly museums of science and natural history, or journey to the Calçada da Glória, a road lined with urban street art.

Style Notes

Farmhouse hotel. Known as the Casa da Bela Portuguesa, the rooms are set in a 400-year old farmhouse, which has been renovated to include a mix of traditional and contemporary furnishings. Rooms feature hardwood floors and rustic décor, with sunny balconies and traditional Portuguese white walls. We love the thick stone window seats, the original wooden shutters and the traditional dark wood furniture.
