THE NEST by Cooking and Nature is a surprising accommodation at the heart of Serra de Aire e Candeeiros. A place that embraces you with all its soul. Less is more. Natural materials, minimal decor, involving ambiance.
Younger brother of one of Portugal’s most awarded hotel projects, the Cooking & Nature – Emotional Hotel, the country house THE NEST, by Cooking and Nature has eight double rooms and 2 apartments characterized by simplicity and the use of natural materials. It is located in one of the most beautiful valleys of Portugal, surrounded by ancient olive groves, in the traditional village of Alvados, in the heart of the Serras de Aire e Candeeiros Natural Park.
Located just 70 minutes from Lisbon Airport and two hours from Porto Airport, this hotel is close to three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Convent of Christ, in Tomar, Monastery of Batalha and Monastery of Alcobaça; and 20 minutes from Fátima and 35 minutes from the iconic Nazaré Beach, ideal to visit all year round and where you can taste the best fresh fish.
The House offers a hiking trail network, e-bike trails — you can rent bikes at the lodge —, horse riding and pottery workshops among other suggestions. Outdoor swimming pool, unique cooking lessons in a charming kitchen, balconies facing the mountain and a space for lawn games complete a varied offer for some unforgettable days in the heart of Portugal.
