Solar de Vilar | Beiras, Portugal
Solar de Vilar is a completely magical 18th century restoration. This manor home villa gives guests the impression that all roads lead to the twisting turning village road. Thick, white stone walls lead you through the gate and into the lovingly restored property. The husband-wife team of Maria and Luis have taken painstaking efforts to turn this property into a truly spectacular villa. While the home has been restored, decor has been selected fitting the elegant comfort design. Oversized sofas and armchairs compliment the European antiques. Each and every room offers bright sunny spots. The drawing room, dining room, kitchen, and master all open to the Solar de Vilar terrace offering views of the Serra da Estrela and Serra do Caramulo. The TV room, game room, library/office and private family chapel are all located at the front of the home.
Solar de Vilar is the perfect place to be your elegant home base as you explore Beiras. Maria takes great steps to ensure her guests have a gastronomy experience while staying with her. Local cuisine and flavors are her passion - she will either create a one of a kind experience for you or guide you to the flavors you desire. She creates some truly spectacular regional specialties while serving her favorite veggies, herbs and fruits from the property's market garden.
