Noble bed and breakfasts

July 12, 2011 § 1 Comment

Portugal has many ancient manor houses and palaces built by noble families and wealthy landowners. These houses are expensive to maintain, so in the 20th century many fell into disrepair. The government created a program called “Turismo de Habitação” (home tourism) that subsidized their restoration and, in return, the owners agreed to turn them into “bed and breakfasts.” You can tour the country staying, at very affordable prices, in aristocratic homes, with expansive vistas and warm hospitality. These proud houses are silent witnesses to centuries of history. When you visit them, you touch the soul of Portugal.
