Fantastic place to stay with so much history to see. The location is rather remote so a car would be beneficial and necessary to be able to explore the area and nearby towns. Castel de Vide is a traditional Portuguese town where you can see...More

About the neighbourhood
The historic Spa Town of Castelo de Vide is set in the heart of Parque Natural da Serra São Mamede in Alentajo, 19km from the Spanish border and 210km from Lisbon airport; 570 meters above sea level with panoramic views of the Spanish Mountains, Serra da Malcata, the northern Mountains of Serra Estrela, the fortress of Marvão and the small chaple of Erida de Nossa Senhora da Penha perched on the mountain ridge across from Castelo de Vide… a treasure trove of gems to name a few!
To the side of Sleepy Santiago there is a Roman cobbled road that will take you directly into the castle walls, from here you can take in the magnificent views from various advantage points. Walk around the castle ruin and visit it’s museum.

Getting around
You can get to Castelo de Vide via car or coach. Once here walking is the best and most rewarding way of getting around.
I can organise accompanied tours for sight seeing and walks.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Lisboa: 230.0 km

Ideally Lisbon Airport is the closest to fly into. Then you can either rent a car or catch the Rede Expressos coach from Lisboa Sete Rios to Castelo de Vide. Get the Rede Expressos APP, or go on line for the time table. If you are unsure I will help you plan you journey here.
If you are driving and coming from the direction of Portalegre, Lisbon, Castelo Branco when approaching Castelo de Vide on the A246, follow directions to the town centre second exit at roundabout (‘5 fish water fountains’ on the right), next RaB take 3rd exit , a Fire Station on your left, there is a sharp turn right..TURN LEFT here and follow the top road, sighed to S.Tiago Church.
