Special places to stay
A home from home
The stamp of quality
you arrive as a guest and
you leave us as a friend
TURIHAB is delighted to invite you into our splendid homes which range from stately manor houses and elegant country houses, to farm houses and rustic cottages, each with its own individual character. They are family homes as opposed to hotels, offering a very different kind of holiday experience with that’s personal touch.
They have since been individually inspected to ensure the highest standards of quality and hospitality.
To be able to market the product effectively TURIHAB has developed the Trade Marks Solares de Portugal and Casas no Campo.
With gratitude for discovering the best of Portugal.

Solares de Portugal
Solares de Portugal is a unique concept that was introduced to promote quality tourist accommodation in houses of character “Turismo de Habitação” and, at the same time, preserve the rich legacy of Portugal’s architectural and cultural heritage. It is important to emphasise that Solares de Portugal are not hotels or guesthouses. They are privately-owned stately manor houses, elegant country homes and rustic farmhouses. Some of them were once in decline but today they are restored to their former glory and are open to guests who are treated as part of the family.
Casas no Campo
Casas no Campo accommodation is an exclusive group of country houses, charming cottages, and totally independent luxury Villas that allow you to enjoy family vacations with total privacy. These special places have a big range of exclusive services to enjoy the nature, culture, sportiing life and leisure activities in the Portuguese countryside, miles away from the busy cities. They invite you into relaxing freedom holidays, you can listen to the birds singing and the water flowing in the streams, you can join the local life and learn about each region and its traditions.
