Book golf breaks with findagolfbreak at The Vidago Palace luxury hotel and stay in a hundred-year-old country house surrounded by mountains and woodlands. It first earned a reputation for its thermal baths, thanks to the excellence of its waters. These days it is a 5-star hotel, part of the Leading Hotels of the World network, and offers its guests excellent service, a modern Spa and a unique golf course. Mentioned in countless publications and guidebooks, both Portuguese and international, the sumptuous Vidago Palace Hotel is one of the most romantic and emblematic tourism destinations of the northern region of Portugal. Set in the Vidago Thermal Park, it stands out for the experience it provides, combining contact with nature and an atmosphere replete with glamour and elegance.

Designed last century, during the reign of King Carlos I, the Vidago Palace Hotel was opened for the first time in 1910! With distinction, as one of the Leading Hotels of the World, the hundred-year old Palace now provides a luxury service of excellence and comfort. Inside the hotel, you are invited to enjoy one of the 70 magnificent Rooms & Suites, to savour the gastronomy of the majestic Grand Ballroom and to relax in the modern Thermal Spa, where the mineral water of Vidago – recognised for its exceptional therapeutic qualities – reigns supreme! In the park, the 18-hole Golf Course is ideal for a few rounds. Lastly, take a trip through this enchanted universe with a visit to the traditional springs or a bicycle ride along the many trails that provide a fantastic opportunity to observe the local wildlife. Discover the Vidago Palace Hotel – a hidden palace in the woods and perfect for a golf holiday!

The Vidago Palace Hotel reopened in 2010 following major refurbishment work. The splendour and sophistication of the past have been preserved intact, along with bygone standards of service and hospitality. Deeply rooted in the collective memory of several generations, the hotel harks back to the way life was lived in the great aristocratic households of the Belle Époque. The best craftsmen in each speciality were taken on to restore to the hotel to the brilliance and aura it possessed from old times. A duo of Portuguese architects – José Pedro Lopes Vieira and Diogo Rosa Lã – masterminded decoration of the interior spaces, while the Thermal SPA and the Club House are the work of the highly regarded architect Álvaro Siza Vieira.
