Staying at Hotel Casa Palmela means you are at the very heart of the Arrábida natural park, one of the most splendid landscapes found in Portugal. Setúbal is a coastal region boasting some of the most breath taking scenery imaginable, with every type of habitat accessible in 360 panoramic views in every direction. From the crashing waves of the Atlantic ocean to the world-famous sun kissed vineyards of Portugal’s mainland, this region really has something to offer any intrepid visitor. Setúbal is full of historic charm and natural splendour in equal measure.
A Trip on the Atlantic
It’s impossible not to get out onto the water when staying in Portugal, what with the most impressive and powerful waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
Take a day trip to around the marina and visit the hot spots of Setúbal’s local islands as you spot Atlantic dolphins playfully chasing your boat, before enjoying a sunset cruise back to the mainland sipping on champagne and local sea food before returning back to Hotel Casa Palmela for a dinner under the stars amongst the vineyards.
Alternatively, in the summer months, enjoy wind surfing, scuba diving or even deep sea fishing. A sea world of possibilities awaits you.
Discover Old Lisbon
Lisbon is a place of history and old charm packed full of beautiful castles, ruins, monuments and palatial significance. It is easy to explore and lose oneself in the city amongst its many streets, however a curated tour is something rather special especially when matched with food, drink and local expertise. We love to arrange city experiences in association with Hotel Casa Palmela who have unrivalled access to the most exclusive, private experiences available in Lisbon and Setúbal, off the beaten track, and not available to the general public. Discover the very best only available with The Events Mill.
José Maria da Fonseca Exclusive Wine Tour
This exclusive experience takes place in one of the most emblematic Portuguese wineries, and the first table wine producer in Portugal, José Maria da Fonseca.
The Soares Franco family, owner of the winery since its foundation in 1834, in addition to excellent wine producers, are also great hosts who create a wonderful immersive experience as your tour through this winery where you understand the process of how the wine is made.
It is possible to organise a multi-sensory gastronomic dining experience and to incorporate the wine within the dinner itself, and to host this alongside the owners who are able to incorporate the history and provenance of the wine and its heritage into the narrative, whilst being held in the most intimate of settings, literally surrounded by casks. This really is a once in a lifetime experience.
