    The region’s unmissable destination

    In the north of Portugal, approximately one hour away from Porto and 15 minutes from the town of Chaves, stands the Vidago Palace Hotel! This emblematic palace hidden in the woods, set amid the Vidago Nature Park, is an invitation to discovery!

    Vidago Palace

    The Vidago Palace is a luxury hotel in a hundred-year-old country house surrounded by mountains and woodlands. It first earned a reputation for its thermal baths, thanks to the excellence of its waters. These days it is a 5-star hotel, part of the Leading Hotels of the World network, and offers its guests excellent service, a modern Spa and a unique golf course. Mentioned in countless publications and guidebooks, both Portuguese and international, the sumptuous Vidago Palace Hotel is one of the most romantic and emblematic tourism destinations of the northern region of Portugal. Set in the Vidago Thermal Park, it stands out for the experience it provides, combining contact with nature and an atmosphere replete with glamour and elegance.

    Trás-os-Montes is all around!

    With an intimate atmosphere, the Vidago Palace Hotel extends across a woodland park of 110 hectares that is home to a variety of amenities, including a Conference Centre and the traditional thermal springs, where you can directly sample the cool Vidago Water,, sparkling with 100%-natural bubbles. The current estate preserves all the heritage and architectural and landscape features of the original. Passing between the iron gates and strolling along the avenue through century-old woods that open onto the monumental reddish-ochre façade is like a journey back in time – and in space! When at last you come to the steps to the main entrance of the Vidago Palace Hotel, you are well prepared to absorb the pervasive atmosphere of fin de siècle that prevails there, between the house and the park – and Trás-os-Montes is all around! If you are a fan of Miguel Torga you certainly shouldn’t miss the entrance to this "Marvellous Kingdom”.

    With the Douro at your feet

    The magnificent Alto Douro Wine Region  – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – also lies in the north of Portugal. Yet another of the attractions of the Vidago Palace Hotel, which is situated approximately one hour away from landscapes unique in the world, where schist slopes bathed in consistent sunshine have inspired human endeavour to produce a breath-taking physical and cultural landscape.
