The spiritual heart of Vale das Lobas

The Nature Spa is a lost treasure of the ancient world with healing waters and an aura of antiquity which provide the perfect environment for relaxation, regeneration and inspiration. Come and stay in one of the 23 rooms and nourish yourself in the sacred spring waters starting Spring 2021.

The original building was constructed more than 400 years ago as the family home to the noble Beltrão dynasty, and it was called Solar do Girões. Soon this unique manor house will be a Nature Spa, and the exquisite gardens, healing waters, and magical forests will be in the service of providing health and inspiration to all who come here.

This restored 17th century manor house – called Seminário around the village, housing the Capela do Girões chapel – will host:

  • Lodging with 23 bedrooms, restaurant and workshops and conference spaces
  • Spa with natural mineral water from ancient water mines
  • Botanical & medicinal gardens and Apothecary

The reconstruction began in July 2019, and will be completed around October 2021. The original building was built on granite rock, on four different levels, and the reconstruction project has challenged the skill and ingenuity of the engineers and builders. Gratitude to our amazing team, including Arquiteto João Bucho, Engineers Patrícia Marques, Domingos Coxo, António Matos, Rui Almeida, Ricardo Marques, Rui Araújo, and all the hard working crew who are working on this project.
