When to go

If you’re looking for outdoor adventure, the Serra is stunning in any season – walk amongst wildflowers in spring, admire the changing leaves in autumn and snowshoe the slopes in winter – but we recommend the summer, when you’ll find sheep-strewn meadows and can go wild swimming in waterfalls.

Getting there

  • Planes

    Porto’s airport is the closest, a two-hour drive away. You can also fly into Lisbon, a three-hour drive away.
  • Automobiles

    You’ll have cinematic views if you choose to take the corkscrew-shaped mountain roads up to the hotel. Brace yourself – the passes get nail-bitingly narrow as you ascend, so it’s best to drop your speed and just enjoy the spectacular scenes.
