Overview Vidago Palace
The Project Vidago Palace Hotel
starts in the beginning of the past century, during the reign of King
Charles I. The northern region of Portugal possesses many natural
springs, and the thermal cures in special wellness spaces were always
very much appreciated by the aristocratic society of the Belle Époque
Reopened and redesigned in 2010 The main responsible for this
rebirth are interior architects - José Pedro Lopes Vieira & Diogo
Rosa Lã – both who idealized the interiors decoration, along with
Architect Álvaro Siza Vieira, who created the new Spa and Club House.
Although since Roman times that
Vidago waters and their therapeutic qualities were known, fact which
from nowadays Vidago owes its most important story, It was not until 1863 when a local farmer discovered he felt better from drinking from the source and relayed this to a local doctor was it proven. The Vidago water has been bottled since 1886 and may still be tasted directly from the spring in its highly concentrated and naturally carbonated form in one of three sources that outcrop at the surface in the Vidago Palace Park.
Before reopening, the Vidago Palace already had a classic Mackenzie Ross 9 hole course built in 1936. Totally renovated by the famous duo Cameron & Powell, the new Golf Vidago Palace features a 18-hole course, with a length of 6308 meters (par 72), who aspires to occupy a prominent place in the list of the most famous golf courses of southern Europe. Hoping to hold a European Tour Event in the near future.
A Golfing Experience visited the Vidago Palace & Spa in July 2014 and highly recommends this fantastic destination. This can be as a two centre break taking in the sights of Porto City or a mountain & gastronomy holiday.
