Perched on a rocky outcrop overlooking the magnificent Guincho beach is Fortlaleza do Guincho, a former 17th-century military garrison that's now one of the most prestigious and enticing hotel properties in the Lisbon area. Accommodation is made up of just 27 beautifully appointed rooms and suites, all with sea views. The three Junior Suites are particularly enchanting, each one classically styled and commanding a jaw-dropping Atlantic Ocean panorama. This exclusive retreat facilitates some memorable wild and romantic encounters with Nature. The stunning Sintra National Park, which encompasses Cabo da Rocha, the westernmost point of continental Europe, is on the doorstep, while the windy coast attracts experienced surfers and windsurfers to the beach. And the Fortaleza guest experience is further heightened by the Michelin star that shines above the restaurant, a gastronomic accolade that's been maintained since 2001!
