Start your experience in Portugal with three nights at the luxurious Verride Palacio Santa Catarina, located in the mix of things in the Bairro Alto neighborhood. Once a nobleman’s palace, Verride Palacio now contains just eighteen gorgeously renovated rooms and suites, some retaining original architectural details like azulejo tiles and intricate plaster molding. Verride Palacio feels like the perfect marriage between contemporary sensibilities and respect for the past. (The heated pool and delicious breakfast spread don’t hurt its appeal, either.)

Your private guide will meet you at Verride Palacio the morning of your first day for a walking tour of Lisbon’s oldest neighborhood, Alfama. If photography’s your thing, we’ll ensure your guide is a pro who can help you with composition and will know the best spots to get killer shots. The afternoon is free for exploring this beautiful city (and getting a workout in as you climb up and down the hills). The day winds up with dinner at a speakeasy with a slightly racy burlesque show.

Days 2 and 3 can include visits to beautiful Sintra or Cascais, more free time for exploring, or a visit to one of Lisbon’s fado lounges to hear Portugal’s signature music.

Alentejo

The morning of Day 4 finds you heading to the airport to pick up your rental car as you make your way to Sao Lourenco do Barrocal. After a 2-hour drive through Alentejo’s villages, you’ll arrive at the property…you’ll know you’re there when a herd of cattle greet you.
