On the same street as the Museu de Arte Antiga, this late-18th-century mansion maintains fittings, furnishings, paintings, and tile work throughout that are in keeping with the building's historic character. Its guest rooms are individually furnished and tasteful; some have access to the garden via an exterior staircase. On the ivy-covered patio, you can eat breakfast and imagine yourself in a different age. The top-floor library has an ample terrace with bar attached
that, like the one downstairs, operates on an honor system. The mansion was once the home of Portuguese novelist Eça de Queirós. Reservations are vital for stays here.
