Representing the Pousadas since 1995!
Portugal - 'Europe's last best-kept secret' - is proud of its history and traditions, much of which is associated with the Pousadas.
The state-owned 'POUSADAS DE PORTUGAL' form a network of more than 40 establishments spread across the country from the green and rustic valleys of the Minho to the luxuriant mountains of Trás-os-Montes, or to Alentejo's golden plains and the Algarve coast with its fine sand and warm waters.
Since the creation of this network in 1942, each Pousada has become synonymous with the history, culture and traditions of its particular region. Recently reclassified into 4 distinct groups - Historic, Historic Design, Nature and Charm Pousadas, depending on the individual characteristics of each Pousada -
Examples of the 'POUSADAS DE PORTUGAL' now include:
Castles, palaces, monasteries and convents - all meticulously restored and converted
Country houses and mansions - constructed in the style of the region
Traditional hotels - often in superb locations and settings, some with as few as a dozen or so rooms.
The prices quoted are in Sterling. They are the equivalent of the official Pousada Euro Rates.

There are now currently 43 Pousadas in Portugal (including 2 in the Azores and 1 in Brazil), now managed by the prestigious Pestana hotel group. Apart from the Pousadas we also offer exclusive discounted rates at four of the Pestana group – the 5* Pestana Palace in Lisbon (featured on "No Frontiers" last year), Pestana Porto in the historic centre of the city and very convenient now that there is a direct flight from Dublin to Porto, and the Pestana hotels in Cascais and Sintra near Lisbon.
In 2003 Pestana Hotels and Resorts acquired a sizeable interest in Pousadas de Portugal and the Pestana group are now responsible for the management of the network.
