The hotel was built in 1859 to be the summer residence of the Count of Graciosa and it was the first manor house to ever been built in Luso.
With the development of the town as a nobility and rich people holiday destination in the late XIX century, many rich and famous Portuguese people, build its own holiday house in Luso, giving to the town an eclectic and aristocratic look, typical of the "Belle-époque".
Nevertheless, the hotel's building, kept its dominating position over the landscape of this marvellous little town, that someone once called the "Suisse of Portugal". Set to be a hotel unit since 1939, it has been managed by the Alegre family ever since then.
Nowadays, this boutique hotel combines its history with the welfare available in 18 large rooms, all with heating, bathroom, telephone, television and some with balconies. A closed car park area, swimming-pool, restaurant, gardens, and a dramatic view over Luso's village and Bussaco Mountain, will give guests, wonderful moments of comfort and pleasure.
