An absolute must!
Posted Sep 17, 2016
This is the most incredible place we have ever stayed. From the moment we arrived at Pousada Castelo de Palmela we were made to feel very welcome. We were given a corner room on the top floor, which had views over Lisbon, the Rio Tejo, the Arrábida Natural Park and the castle. No matter which way you looked, the views were breathtaking.
What made the stay extra special was the team of staff at Pousada Palmela. From Tiago at the check in desk to Artur in the bar, everyone we met treated us like family. We had planned to have dinner at the Pousada but wanted an authentic Portuguese meal, so Tiago suggested Retiro Azul in Palmela. He drove us, and introduced us to the owners, and we had an incredible meal. We had the Queijinho de Azeitao & Estaladico de alheira come maca to start (divine), the Lascas de bacalhau com broa (codfish) & Bife da vazia (veal steak) for mains (sublime) and finished with chocolate mouse and an apple pie crepe. Add in countless litres of local wine and it made for one unforgettable night.
The next morning we woke in time to catch the sunrise from the terrace. It was like a fairy tale. Words cannot describe the feeling of sitting on the terrace, enjoying a pastel de nata and a café con leche in the morning or a glass of moscatel at sunset - it must be experienced. We cannot recommend the Pousada Palmela enough! You will not regret it.
