Rui Anastácio at Cooking and Nature Hotel

Bilateral Meetings

  • September 27, 2014 (11h10 - 13h10)

We have a menu of 12 rooms with 12 diferent emotions.

We are located in one of the most beautiful valleys in Portugal, right in the heart of the Serras de Aire e Candeeiros Natural Park in the rural hamlet of Alvados with its dry stone walls and old oak and olive trees where life has not changed since ancestral times.

Here, in Autumn, it is possible to see the flight of the Golden Eagle, pick delicious mushrooms and hear the call of the Eurasian Eagle Owl. In Springtime, when leaving 'Cooking and Nature – Emotional Hotel' take care not to step on some rare orchids or the splendid Broteroi Peony. Climb the Castelejo Hill with your guide, who will be carrying a flask of hot coffee in his back pack to serve to you at the top where you will get to know the Red-Billed Chough and understand why there are so many marine fossils in these parts. With a little luck, you may also see the Short Toed Snake Eagle, pale as the mountain stones. For those who are less energetic, there is a terrace where you will find binoculars for birdwatching and a telescope for star gazing. If you prefer a bicycle ride through the fields of the AlvadosValley, we have bicycles on hand and a seat for babies, all free of charge. 2Km from the hotel, at the Alcaria Equestrian Centre , we can offer horse riding trails through the NaturalPark. Treks can last for 1 hour, I day or even 7 days with different routes on offer each day. On moonlit nights, you are invited on a spooky walk through the forest of Alvados.
