Fodor's Expert Review Casa Amarela

Praça Dom Pedro V 11, Castelo de Vide, Portalegre, 7320-111, Portugal Fodor's Choice

The beautifully restored 17th-century manor house on Castelo de Vide's main square features a buttery yellow facade and stone stairways to intricately decorated rooms with period antiques. The breakfast room has a traditional clay-tiled floor and a huge fireplace. The hotel is the pride and joy of Victor Guimaraes, whose family has owned the building for generations.
