Solar do Castelo Review

In this 18th-century mansion within the walls of a castle, original architectural features have been lovingly restored and archeological finds put on display. Featuring classical furnishings and subtle color schemes, the standard rooms in the original building offer river views; rooms in the newer wing incorporate parts of the castle wall. A sun-drenched courtyard acts as a breakfast area and is home to a family of peacocks. There's no restaurant, but there are plenty nearby; the Solar also has 24-hour room service and a sociable free afternoon tea (or espresso). Vehicle access is restricted here, but a golf cart will fetch you from the nearest bus/streetcar stop.
