Casa das Penhas Douradas

At an altitude of 1500m, everything takes on a different light. The Casa das Penhas Douradas is inspired by local architecture and constructed using natural materials such as cork and wood. One of the main concerns of the hotel is to respect environment, as well as for the values of the Natural Park that surrounds it. Take a deep breath of the crisp clear air of the Serra da Estrela.
