The old town’s atelier
Hermitage Castelo Casa Chafariz is a collection of five serviced apartments in the heart of Santos, Lisbon’s thriving design quarter. Painted a stately sienna red, the decorative-fronted building is an emblem of traditional Portuguese design and overlooks the Chafariz da Esperança, a baroque fountain – and official national monument – dating from 1760. Inside, the apartments tell tales of an equally illustrious past, featuring ornate ceilings, wooden beams and interior shutters. Modernity has arrived in the form of sleek kitchens, contemporary furnishings and statement lamps, ensuring the apartments are fit for 21st-century travellers. Downstairs, the expert concierge team are all too happy to spill the city’s secrets, and Santos’ streets are full of characterful cafés, art galleries and homegrown boutiques, many of which have taken up residence in old warehouses and workshops.
