Hotel Santa Margarida Now Open

A new four-star hotel opened on the 1st of October near Castelo Branco in Portugal's Centro region.
The Hotel Santa Margarida has 23 rooms and suites and a wide range of guest facilities including a bar, tea room, swimming pool, extensive gardens and a spa with sauna, gymnasium and Turkish bath.
A major feature is Callum, the hotel's regional restaurant where local specialities such as roast kid are served.
The hotel is a very good base from which to explore the Serra da Estrela mountain region and the border region of central Portugal. With its broad avenues and large squares, Castelo Branco itself is a bright airy town famous for its intricately-embroidered bedspreads known as colchas.
