With just 15 glamorous suites, the hotel provides an extensive selection of wine tasting, cultural and gastronomic events for guests to enjoy during their stay. In addition, there is an outdoor pool, a restaurant serving traditional cuisine on the terrace, and a spa offering aromatherapy treatments, all just 40 minutes from Porto.

Carmo’s Boutique Hotel feels just like a private residence with a homely and tranquil atmosphere reflected in the suites which are tastefully decorated in an attractive mix of modern and classic styles. A number of the rooms have views across the Lima River Valley. Be sure to experience the spa where you can enjoy a glass of champagne and soak in a bath of pure goat’s milk.

There is so much to see and do close to Carmo’s Boutique Hotel that you will be spoilt for choice. Ponte de Lima Old Centre is a short drive away, so head into its medieval centre and then walk across the Roman bridge that spans the River Lima, after which the village is named. In the afternoon, visit the local wine estates that produce vinho verde or try your hand at a round of golf at the local course. Further afield, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Porto and Guimarães should not be missed or Braga, with Portugal’s oldest cathedral, as well as Viana do Castelo with it’s Atlantic beaches where you can enjoy from a lot of water sports.
