Looking for novel, exceptional accommodation for your tour or group? Concerned about excessive prices but require a high standard of service? You can’t go wrong with the Parador and Pousada networks of hotels in Spain and Portugal, over 130 unique hotels with tremendous character, charm and design. A wonderful range of historic hotels such as castles, convents, monasteries, palaces as well as some contemporary ‘design’ hotels and mansion houses spread throughout the 2 countries in the most remarkable settings.
These hotels were converted from original monuments and rebuilt from partially-ruined historic sites, or built specifically in the style of the region to provide an authentic feel. A small number are stylishly modern and located in wonderfully panoramic settings, maximising guests’ enjoyment of the views. A handful are a sympathetic blend of modern and historic, making the most of original battlements and the need to rebuild and extend to include more modern facilities.
Experience authentic local and regional cuisine enjoy the stylish restaurants that these lovely properties have to offer, perhaps celebrate with a welcome drink on the terrace or a champagne/cava reception with canapes? Or keep things simple and uncomplicated with straightforward “international” cuisine. These restaurants pride themselves on their excellent standards of service and presentation, and most are in exquisite settings. A drinks supplement can be arranged to make your life easier, to include a fairly generous amount of wine, mineral water and tea or coffee for all participants at a modest, fixed cost. Superior drinks packages can be tailor made.
You may require secure parking for expensive sports or classic cars, or a covered parking area for motorbikes. Most of these properties have garages or enclosed car parks, some with cost and some without. We will always advise what arrangements can be offered to match the needs of your clients. Security guards can also be arranged for additional overnight vigilance where necessary.
We also represent over 400 chateaux and hotels across France through Les Collectionneurs, many with excellent restaurants offering traditional and modern French cuisine.
