Fore Play. The world-class golf courses at Penha Longa Resort are ranked among the top 30 in continental Europe and take players on a journey through challenging hills and past picturesque lakes, medieval walls and castle towers.
Roll With It. After your game, recover at Penha Longa Spa with a round of Quiro Golf Massage by Natura Bissé. During the hour long, head-to-toe treatment, therapists roll and knead golf balls across muscles to relieve stress, reduce inflammation, improve flexibility and restore energy.
Moor to See. For the most fascinating experience at Quinta da Regaleira, you’ll need to sink to new lows. Subterranean passageways connect the ornate five-story palace with a nearby chapel. Likewise, the path at the bottom of an eight-story deep “initiation well” leads to grottoes, caves and the elaborate 9-acre gardens. (Visitors can always traverse the property aboveground, too.)
Spartan Seclusion. The Convento dos Capuchos offers a stark study in contrasts from the previous stop’s splendor. The only comfort offered in the tiny cells of this convent, carved out of stone and the granite mountainside during the 16th century, was a cork lining, embodying the Franciscan principles of austerity its friars lived by.
Coastal Cuisine. Watch the sun sink into the Atlantic as you dine at Villa Tamariz Utopia. The contemporary Mediterranean menu and laid-back coastal glamour of this renovated 19th century villa make it a top spot on the Portuguese Riviera.
