The Meliá Palácio da Lousa, the country's first Boutique Hotel, is an emblazoned building of the XVIII century. Formerly Palace of Viscondessa do Espinhal, it is classified as Historical Heritage.
Refurbished into a 4 star hotel, with 46 rooms in total (23 in the palace and 23 in the new wing), it blends the charm of an historical setting with state of the art technology, thus providing the highest level of comfort to all our guests.
A warm welcoming and the attention to detail are the greatest assets that our staff provides. Relax and enjoy an exquisite treatment in a refined and stylish setting.
The restaurant A Viscondessa is, by itself, a unique opportunity to savor the jewels this region has to offer.
Located in Lousa's historical center, renowned entry point of the Schist Villages Route, the Hotel offers a warm atmosphere with stunning views of the Lousa Mountains.
The Hotel surroundings invite you to enjoy nature. You can observe wild game (deers and wild boars) in their natural habitat and visit a set of secular buildings, such as the medieval Arouce Castle, the wells of the Real Neveiro, where ice was stored in the winter to be later on sent to the King's cellar in Lisbon, and the Chapel of our Lady of Sorrows, up on the mountain.
The Lousa Mountains are mandatory when it comes to adventure. Mountain biking and all terrain vehicle fans are always thrilled to find here new paths that will push their skill to the limit. Nostalgically, the Rally of Portugal's fans remember the Lousa's mountains as one the best stages of the competition.
Last but not the least, don't miss out the Aldeias do Xisto (Schist Villages) up on the mountains and the beautifully build XVII century manors spread across the Lousa village.
