PROPERTY Description

Casa Alta Royal Lodge

Casa Alta Royal Lodge is a former royal lodge located high within the precincts of the Castle of Ourem just 12 minutes by car from the famous Fatima Shrine and in the center of many must-see cultural and historic sites, Unsurpassed in the region for its comfort, decoration, intimacy, attention to detail and service, guests enjoy the best of two worlds... access to all the famous sites, and at the same time, peace and quiet away from all the crowds and commercialization. Casa Alta welcomes persons of all faiths or none. Donations support Casa Alta, without which it would be unable to continue in its primary mission as place of unparalleled tranquillity, retreat, and spiritual nourishment. Prices quoted are the suggested donations to the “Castelos de Portugal - Casa Alta” a non-profit Association, for a one-time cost of one euro for members and their guests staying at Casa Alta in accordance with the Bylaws.
There are only three rooms, exuding old world charm, one of which is a suite. They have stunning views, private bathrooms, wood-burning fireplaces, embroidered sheets and superior duvets, antiques, fresh flowers, and complimentary artesian water. A full English-style breakfast is included. Hand-finished laundry is available at a nominal charge.
 Your host, Fr. John Guilbert Mariani, Chaplain to the Royal House of Portugal, restored Casa Alta to its original ambiance, recapturing its first purpose to provide an elegant, intimate oasis of peace and reflection. Whether you are passing through or staying longer, Casa Alta Royal Lodge is truly one of the real treasures of Portugal.

Take a journey back in time… Walk the narrow, cobblestone streets past medieval, whitewashed houses, and discover Casa Alta Royal Lodge on its own, cresting the ramparts of the ruined castle. Sweeping views of the valley below, and the scent of roses and lavender above, both surprise and delight. Surrounded by the king's forest, it was here that timber came to build the ships that discovered the New World.
 
This is the historic walled village of the Castle of Ourém, known as the jewel in the Portuguese crown. Located in the heart of Portugal, just 12 minutes by free, chauffeured transport to the famous Shrine of Fatima, little of the modern world intrudes here. Queen Teresa remodeled it in 1180, and Queen Saint Elizabeth added a small hermitage for royal retreats shortly after.

In the seventeenth century it served as a lodge for the Portuguese royal family, members of the royal court, and visiting nobles of Europe. Catherine of Braganza spent her last night in Portugal at the lodge before embarking for England to become the Queen Consort to Charles II. After the fall of the monarchy in the twentieth century, the lodge passed through several hands, expanding the small manor and bringing modern improvements. Its views of the former royal palace and its unique watchtowers are an ever-present reminder of its historic past. Completely renovated in 2003, Fr. Mariani installed all new plumbing, electricity, and insulation, five bathrooms, five wood-burning fireplaces, a new kitchen, all new floors, windows and a new roof.
The house presently has three bedrooms, double occupancy. The suite has a seating area around a fireplace with a sofa-bed for extra accommodation. The garden terrace was expanded to include a pool terrace with panoramic views of the Ourém Valley and mountains beyond.
