Description provided by property
Built on the site of a 17th-century fortress, this luxury hotel boasts an award-winning gourmet restaurant and sweeping Atlantic Ocean views. It overlooks the Portuguese surfers’ paradise, Guincho Beach.
Stone winding stairs, terracotta tiles and ceilings in exposed bricks create a medieval feel. The central cloister is fitted with velvet sofas and wrought-iron chandeliers.
Hotel Fortaleza do Guincho’s rooms are appointed with rich fabrics, dark wood furniture, and paintings with golden frames. Some rooms have private closed balconies with ocean views.
The Michelin-starred restaurant has strong Portuguese influences and serves dishes based upon quality national ingredients. The expansive wine list is hand-picked by an award-winning sommelier. Guests can enjoy Fortaleza do Guincho’s fine dining in the privacy of their room.
After a day visiting the Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, guests can sip a cocktail from the Fortaleza do Guincho Hotel’s bar, seated on the vast sun terrace overlooking the ocean.
Pets are allowed and have a cost of EUR 15 per day.
