Terms of Use

TURIHAB is delighted to invite you into - Solares de Portugal - our splendid homes which range from stately manor houses and elegant country houses, to farm houses and rustic cottages, each with its own individual character. They are family homes as opposed to hotels, offering a very different kind of holiday experience with that personal touch.

Just two decades ago many of these houses were facing decay, but with government support they have been painstakingly restored to their former glory and have now opened their doors to receive guests. They have since been individually inspected to ensure the highest standards of quality and hospitality. Many Solares de Portugal have played host to the same family for hundreds of years and often date back to the 16th and 17th Centuries. Embracing Portugal's finest antiques, fine art and furniture, they represent Centuries of Portuguese history and culture.

On arrival at your chosen home you will be greeted by a warm welcome from your host family. Owners eagerly share their inside knowledge about local places of interest to visit, festivals, local gastronomy and traditions. Guests at Solares de Portugal houses will find a range of leisure opportunities at their disposal, such as fishing, hunting, golf, swimming, rambling, tennis, horseback riding, cycling and wine tasting. All our houses have been arranged into three distinct groups: "Casas Antigas", "Quintas & Herdades" and "Casas Rústicas", according to their stateliness, dimensions, spaces and gardens, as well as decorations and historic furnishings.
