Solar Do Castelo

Lisbon, Portugal

Set within the walls of the historic São Jorge Castle, perched proudly atop medieval Alfama, Solar do Castelo exudes utter romance and style. Built on the ancient kitchens of the Royal Palace, this 18th century mansion has been decorated with genuine antiques and bespoke medieval style furniture for an authentic noble vibe. 20 individually decorated rooms border a spectacular inner courtyard, where guests can enjoy an aperitif alfresco from the hotel’s honesty bar whilst bathing in the glorious sun, alongside the majestic resident peacocks.

Rustic Romance

Hidden away on a cobbled back street of the ancient Alfama area in Lisbon, this a Solar do Castelo is a romantic gem and the only hotel within the castle walls. Think thick castle stone heavenly rich ochre, turquoise walls and plenty of charm.

The Location

The Alfama still retains a Moorish flavour from when Portugal was part of the Arabic empire. But it is also an area of contrasts, pretty tiled houses sit next to Catholic cathedrals, and the red roofs and winding streets all head down to the sea. All areas of this property are exclusive to guests only, who can also be greeted at the gate by their own personal golf cart, when they’re ready to explore.

The Rooms

This 18th-century building within the castle has 20 individually decorated bedrooms some of which face medieval Alfama and others the interior of the Sao Jorge castle. The contemporary Medieval design of the furniture was specifically made for the hotel.

Nibbles & Tipples

While there is no official bar or restaurant there is an honesty bar, where you can take your drinks out to the terrace for a spot of sun. Close to the Lisbon Cathedral, Sé, the cobbled streets of Alfama hold much charm, as they wind down a row of charming cafés and avant-garde boutiques, as you meander towards the sea.

Explore the medieval castle village, get lost in its picturesque streets and encounter its deepest and most well-kept secrets. Watch the sunset over the pastel-coloured Alfama from this pretty Moroccan siren — it really is a true hidden sunspot.
