    Family friendly

Cooking and Nature is an intimate boutique hotel situated in the rural village of Alvados in central Portugal. Accessed via a quiet country lane lined with old oak trees and olive groves, this romantic and family friendly design hotel boasts 12 bedrooms in the hotel and 3 apartments and 8 rooms in The Nest (250 meter from the hotel) and is suitable for couples, friends and families with children alike.

Upon arrival guests are treated to the impressive sight of a sleek, modern building, with an enchanting green valley in the background. Once inside, you’re immersed in another world, a world where you need do nothing more than relax, enjoy fine dining and explore the local area. In fact, Cooking and Nature benefits from an unrivalled location in the heart of a Natural Park, making it the perfect base for hiking, cycling, mountain biking and horseback riding. Guests can choose to unwind at the lovely spa, which boasts three wellness baths, or enjoy a delicious evening meal in the restaurant where the chef takes great delight in rustling up mouth-watering local dishes made from fresh produce from the hotel’s own garden. Or, better still, why not prepare a delectable meal yourself during a fun and informative cookery workshop organised by the friendly staff?

Alternatively, guests can simply chill-out with a well-earned drink from the honesty bar, in one of the many relaxing lounge spots in and around the hotel. The spacious garden features a large swimming pool with separate children's pool, and there’s also a dedicated children’s playroom, complete with TV and games.
