One of the most beautiful and legendary hotels in Portugal. A European jewel of the ?Golden Twenties?, that combines the grand tradition of Portuguese hospitality with distinctive service, is situated between Lisbon and Porto, near the A1 Highway on the Mealhada Exit (GPS: Longitude: 40º25´28´´, Latitude: -8º27´45´´). It?s surrounded by a wide private park, vineyards and the Curia Golf Course. It was inaugurated in 1926 and was entirely and spectacularly refurbished and reopened in 2008. Its mysticism, classic atmosphere and grandeur remained intact and its status recovered as an inimitable example of the finest you can get in Portuguese hotels. It provides 97 luxurious rooms and 3 suits, of classic size, in four different harmoniously soft colour combinations, that combine ivory, ruby, jacaranda and truffle with original and signed contemporary furniture pieces, all with fabulous marble bathrooms, in a perfect reinterpretation of the atmosphere and architectural language of that epoch, and at the same time, all the elegance, comfort and technology of the 21st century.
