Pousada Mosteiro de Amares - luxury hotel in amares, portugal

Old stones enclose a modernist masterpiece in the green hills of Minho

Swap contemporary life for cloisters and step inside Pousada Mosteiro de Amares – a centuries-old sanctuary that oozes serenity and style. Wander the peaceful gardens that circle the hotel, stopping to admire sculptures. Take a dip in the outdoor pool, surrounded by mountains. Then, sip drinks and enjoy panoramic views from the hillside terrace.

Inside you'll find fresh, modern styling with a nod to the site’s history – exposed stone archways, high ceilings and deep-set window seats. Look out for the old chimney as you enjoy fine dining in the former monastery. Or eat outside in the courtyard, lit by torchlight.

Made for utter tranquillity, yet moments from the sights of Braga, Pousada Mosteiro de Amares is a blissful base for a country escape. Delve into the spectacular landscapes of the Peneda-Gerês National Park – its hiking trails, waterfalls and lakes beg to be explored. Seek out rural villages, medieval churches and hilltop monasteries. Or discover cultural gems in the sleepy city of Braga.

Infused with a sense of history, the restaurant at Pousada Mosteiro de Amares serves up contemporary cuisine drawn from traditional North Portuguese recipes – in a truly evocative setting. Choose to dine beneath the stone-clad archways of the great hall, or outdoors amid candlelit cloisters. Linger over cod made in the ‘convent style’, roasted duck and decadent desserts. Or pick from the rich produce of the surrounding land – fresh pomegranates, ripe figs and cheeses.
