Explore the Portuguese mountains

The Serra da Estrela is often called Portugal's answer to the Pyrenees. Given that many Lisbon and Porto natives spend weekends in the area, it’s no surprise trendy restos and minimalist hotels have sprung up in the medieval fortified towns. The Casa das Penhas Douradas makes you wonder if an Ikea outlet is not far behind. There’s plenty of floor-to-ceiling windows to take in the surrounding peaks, a communal dinner table, a fire pit and an indoor pool. From €90, including breakfast.
