Pestana Palacio do Freixo

Pestana Palacio do Freixo, Porto

Grand & Elegant Hotel


Short description

A grand, luxury hotel complete with Leading Hotels of the World status


Recommended for:
Food & wine | Relaxation | Short break

Located in Freixo, a fringe suburb of Portugal’s World Heritage Site city of Porto, Pestana Palácio do Freixo offers guests an opulent oasis on the edge of the meandering River Douro.

Living up to its status as a member of The Leading Hotels of the World consortium, the luxury accommodation boasts baroque-style interiors and magnificent eighteenth century architecture dreamily back dropped by acres of perfectly manicured gardens. And, with a complimentary shuttle bus on offer to whisk guests off to the city’s historical centre every day, a stay here seamlessly combines city-break exploring with all the perks of a relaxing escape.

And the rooms are equally impressive, each one featuring its own sitting area and sweeping views across the river or manicured gardens. But, the communal areas are the main attraction here – expect high ceilings, plush furnishings and gold trimmings galore.

There's an indoor and outdoor pool, gym, sauna, steam room, and spa. Or, for guests just looking to soak up some Portuguese sun, there are loungers dotted along an elevated jetty – the perfect spot for languid afternoons under the Portuguese sun.

At the Palatium Restaurant, dining is a palatial affair offering locally sourced, sophisticated dishes. For something more casual guests can opt for the all day dining menu at Bar Nasoni.
