Fodor's Expert Review Luz Charming Houses

Rua Principal 78, Moimento , Fátima, Santarém, 2495–650, Portugal Fodor's Choice

Nestled in a nature reserve on the outskirts of Fátima, this stylish resort-style lodging has cottages inspired by local architecture of the 19th and early 20th centuries (though their solar panels and open-plan interiors are completely up-to-date). The breakfast buffet is varied, and if you can also order ahead for dinner (a lighter version of regional cuisine) or just snack on tasty local cheeses and hams. Spa treatments are offered in a grotto, and there's a magnesium pool with a pretty kiosk that serves drinks and snacks in summer.

PROS

  • a short walk to the home of the little shepherds
  • activities include yoga and pottery classes
  • delightfully laid-back atmosphere

CONS

  • a little far from the city's main attractions
