With just a 15 minute drive down to the coast, the surf hot-spot of Guincho Beach provides the perfect backdrop for our new PB Adventure Academy.

Penha Longa has great credentials; a luxurious, modern hotel sensitively incorporated into a historical landscape of ancient buildings and surrounded by a vast and private sporting estate. Whilst its origins date back to the 14th century, the facilities are first-class and right up-to-date, and the sense of space and exclusivity creates a relaxed and low-key atmosphere that our clients often comment on.

Executive Suites are very popular, offering separate living rooms, some with large balconies overlooking the beautiful grounds and golf course.
The Deluxe Room is spacious with either a king-size or two double beds. The private balcony offers views of the resort or golf course. The bathroom is complete with a separate shower and bathtub.

Culinary adventures are in store at the hotel's eight restaurants ranging from authentic Italian cuisine with tastes of the Mediterranean at Il Mercato, to Midori, the best Japanese restaurant in Portugal. Our clients enjoy special dining highlights including an atmospheric banquet in the old monastery, and the proximity of some excellent restaurants along the coast in Cascais and Lisbon reward those prepared to explore the local area further. Our team is always on hand to help with recommendations and local transport so you can relax and enjoy your stay.
