Well-being, communion with nature, time for simple things.
“A serenidade, uma certa lentidão, é tão inseparável da vida do homem como a sucessão das estações é inseparável das plantas, ou do nascimento das crianças. – “Serenity, a certain slowness, is as inseparable from human life as the succession of the seasons is inseparable from the plants, or the birth of children.”
Ernesto Sábato 1911-2011.
Cooking and nature hotel in Alvados is a concept hotel set in the Serra dos Candeeiros mountains roughly 100km above Lisbon. Its a relatively new hotel that integrates with the overwhelming nature of its surrounding mountains with grace and integrity.
Imagine yourself in one of the most beautiful valleys of Portugal, in the heart of the Natural Park of Aire and Candeeiros Mountains, where you can breathe deep rural environment of the Alvados village.
Its dry stone walls and oaks intertwine with the ancestral olive groves still managed by the sparse local population in the old tradition. Here, in the autumn, you will be able to observe the flight of the golden eagle, collect delicious mushrooms and listen to the calls of Eagle Owl, in the spring the mountains come to live with burst of flowers and wildlife as nature awakens after the short Portuguese winter break when you can observe the majesty off the waterfalls as the waters find their ways down th mountain. Summer is the time for early morning hikes, long hot summery blissful afternoons and the busty flutter of many of the 300 butterflies that inhabit the mountains.
This hotel combines luxurious, comfortable accommodation with cooking and nature in a complete wellness experience.
The cooking involves using local herb and ingredients to produce culinary results under the lead of an excellent chef that will teach yo tips and tricks to refine yourcooking techniques while learning the excellence of the regional produce. After the cooking you will eat your meal in our lovely diningroom.
