This boutique hotel artfully combines tradition with designer flare, facing a delightful 3-acre semi-tropical garden in a quiet part of town. The stylishly modern, low-rise accommodation block was designed by highly rated local architect João Favila. Most of the bright, minimalist rooms are on the ground floor and open out onto lawnside terraces; rooms in a modern annex have neat sliding shutters that open onto large balconies. The excellent restaurant is in the original
19th-century quinta across the gardens.
