Casa de São Lourenço

Burel Panorama Hotel

Inaugurated in 1948, Pousada de São Lourenço was one of the first inns in Portugal and one hotel with one of the more interesting setting and view, in an architecture considered as a function of the contemplation of the landscape without harming the integrity of the surroundings. At 1200 meters of altitude it extends to the whole Serra da Estrela and to the beautiful Glacier Valley of the Zêzere river, the Europe’s largest glacier valley. Today has a new life and a new identity to be adapted to current times.

Pousada de São Lourenço is now Casa de São Lourenço. 

The Hotel has 17 rooms and 4 suites, all with panoramic views of the Glacier Valley and the village of Manteigas, all different and with real woolen art facilities to wrap the walls with poetry embroidered on the burel, each one being a a clear homage to the Portuguese design.

Casa de São Lourenço had the hands of the P-06 and Site Specific architecture studios, with a focus on preserving the building’s history and its surrounding landscape, with the sustainability of materials and practices a key factor. A space designed for contemplation mediated by the frameworks proposed by common areas and rooms that extend their internal space to the exterior.

A truly amazing hotel …
