Interior design Nuno Gusmão

The hotel’s interior serves in part as a tribute to the burel wool that has been produced here for decades.

Additional regional touchstones include Maria Keil’s pre-existing and refurbished furniture. Each room is unique and designed to inform guests about local traditions, customs, and materials. The light and dark color palette in the public spaces echoes the two types of wool produced by Serra da Estrela sheep, while neutral colors, pine, and the liberal use of burel give the property a local flair.

Architecture Paulo Costa, Patrícia Marques

The stone and wood building was restored with large windows and wide terraces, connecting one to the mountain scenery.

Originally a simple construction in granite and schist stone, with long eave roofs, Casa de São Lourenço has been enlarged and augmented by architects Paulo Costa and Patrícia Marques through the artful use of masonry and stone. Noteworthy is a new concrete construction that opens up to the south and overlooks the valley, giving the hotel more breadth, as well as a canvas for contemporary design.

“Sometimes journeys go underappreciated—perhaps being overshadowed by the thought of the destination—but every time I drive into or out of the mountains, I’m touched by how special the experience is.”
