    Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro

    Landscape is a gift of the region, granting the pure traveller the contrast between rocky crags and verdant slopes. Sierras that stretch away into the distance, lands that cradled ancient cultures. And nestling in their midst, one of the region’s most beautiful secrets… the Vidago Palace Hotel.
    The landscape not only nourishes the soul, but provides a host of delicious, traditional, Portuguese flavours for the table. This fusion of knowledge and customs is at the heart of a culture unique in the world, of which the hotel is an illustrious representative.

    From the terraces and banks of the River Douro, to the feast of local products typical of the north of Portugal, the province is the perfect amphitheatre for an unforgettable journey. The imposing Vidago Palace Hotel stands among century-old trees, in an enchanted park of 110 hectares, populated by characters who tell stories of a bygone age. Moments that carry the traveller through time to an age when magic is possible.

    It is here, in this Palace, built in the time of kings, that the journey truly begins. One moment in the surrounding woodlands, the next in the imposing interior that endows it with an authenticity and identity to be found nowhere else in the world.

Recognised decades ago as a thermal destination par excellence, at the Vidago Palace Hotel you will find the most advanced health treatments and relaxation techniques, an international standard golf course, and… gastronomy that is a real feast!
