Access to the famous Blandy’s garden surrounding their private residence is a rare treat for garden enthusiasts.

The intimate restaurant serves traditional Portuguese dishes together with international cuisine and there is also a lighter menu served in the bar. There are tennis and badminton courts, a heated outdoor swimming pool and a spa with an indoor pool. The hotel’s golf course was included in Golf World magazine’s 2014 ‘Top 100’ list.
