Accomomdations - Portugal – (New!) Family, Culture, Wine & Cooking

Our “home” for the week is at the luxury, Hotel FeelViana.

The hotel is nestled into the landscape of a beautiful beachside nature reserve and offers amenities that one would come to expect from a boutique hotel that prides itself to detail and service.

From the moment we arrive, it is never more evident as we are greeted by the welcoming hotel staff with smiles and refreshments.

The rooms are spacious, cozy and comfortable, including one king-size bed, (two separate beds are available) and plenty of closet space. The bathroom facilities are also roomy, and feature a large walk-in shower. Each room has a large balcony as well, complete with comfy chairs, where guests can take some time to relax and enjoy the pinewood forest that surrounds the property. There is also a convenient mini-bar and large desk and workspace. The rooms have new large flat-screen TV’s, Air Conditioning and high-speed wireless internet.

The style at this four-star+ hotel could is that of a relaxed beach resort, combined with contemporary elegance. Besides the eclectic collection of art and other decorative pieces, there are wonderful wood tones, and calming hues that bring an instant comfort to guests.

The amenities at the hotel are as nice as any other luxury European resort. There is a large indoor swimming pool, sauna and Turkish bath.

*Spa services such as massage and other wellness treatments are also available.

For our active guests...
When you have ample down-time from our itinerary, you may want to take advantage of some of the activities available at the hotel. There is a full gym and weight-room. Bicycles are available for a nice ride along the beachfront or to take in town. The beach is just a short walk along a wooden boardwalk leading to the sandy shores of Cabedelos Bay. The shoreline is just as picturesque as it is welcoming. A look to the north offers views of the dramatic coastal range that lead clear into Spain. The sea is suitable for a swim or for unwinding. For your convenience, the hotel provides towels and also has a beach-side café offering *refreshments. If you are inclined, the resort also offers *wind and kite surfing rentals and lessons.

The hotel touts a wonderful dining room enclosed by large glass doors lending stunning views of the pine woods and beach beyond. We will have our breakfast each day and a hosted lunch on another. The outdoor seating on the terrace is always open for dining or just hanging out.

There is a *hotel bar for those times when you want some adult beverages outside of our group activities.

The hotel staff are equally helpful and delightful. There is concierge service available, if you need any extras. This hotel is truly a diamond-in-the-rough in a town that does not have hotels of this exceptional quality. The hotel consistently gets excellent reviews. It has a Certificate of Excellence and 4.5 out of 5 Stars rating on TripAdvisor. Not to mention its highly rated, 9.5 out of 10 on

Our guest accommodations are very important to us and we consider many variables when deciding what best represents our core values as well as expectations that our guests have come to know. FeelViana checks off all the boxes!

Not only do we love it, but our guests do as well!

As one of our guests put it, “I loved coming back here at the end of each day.”
Or, “It’s like being in a campground in the woods. But, with a beach!”
And, “It’s so beautiful. So relaxing!”
Another said, “It feels like summer camp…For adults!”
Still another...”I don’t want to leave. Can’t I just stay here?”

We hope to see you in Portugal and hear the same thing!

*Spa services and some activities or rentals are at an extra cost and not included in your Culture Discovery vacation price.

Details Hotel Rooms
Description We assign the rooms to our guests as they reserve based on a needs and desires model. That is, we assign the best rooms to the first people to book, while also taking into consideration their needs. For example, if a couple is the first to book, they will get the best room with the nicest balcony, but we will hold off on rooms with more than one bed for reservations with friends traveling together that need separate beds.
