25 May 2019Richard D. K. Turner

The Quinta do Paço da Serrana, which overlooks the Douro in the village of Boassas, the district of Viseu, will be converted into a 4-star hotel, after a favourable decision by the local municipal assembly at the end of last year. The municipal government entered into a 50-year concession agreement with Porto Antigo – Sociedade Turística to redevelop and manage the new hotel.

The 19-hectare farm, which has been abandoned for decades, will be called the Hotel Serpa Pinto, named after a famous Portuguese explorer who roamed southern Africa at the end of the 19th century. The new 4-star hotel will have 190 rooms, a restaurant and a wine bar. According to an article in the Diário Imobiliário, the hotel is expected to be open to the public in the summer of 2022.
