I have never felt more relaxed than after staying at this hotel. The location is perfect - miles away from anywhere, and (unusually for any hotel) genuinely surrounded by silence. The rooms are not huge, but are very comfortable, the food is good, the service is extremely friendly and helpful, the spa and pool are great and never crowded, and the garden is full of hammocks and sun beds to lie on. Be sure to do some exploring while you're there: there is a beautiful lake only 10-15 minutes walk - a swim in the fresh glacial water is the best way to cool off on a hot day. The glacial valley walk (approx 4 hours) is also worth doing; and go and visit the restaurants in Manteigas, which are good value. One word of warning: book a good hire car. Penhas Douradas is high up - you will need a decent saloon car or a 4x4, and you will definitely need a GPS system.
