|This beautiful Palace dates
back to the beginning of the 20th Century. It is located in a small
wood in the countryside yet it is only 40 minutes from Lisbon with easy access to the airport.
An outstanding house in which
to stay and an ideal location from which to impress your business contacts
by arranging a meeting in one of the beautiful rooms.
The sitting room has magnificent paintings of horses on the walls. A very appropriate theme since this is the area of Portugal for horses and riding in the countryside.
Local places of interest to visit are Palmela with its castle perched on a hilltop and the picturesque village of Alcochete.
The fighting of the locally reared bulls takes place at Alcochete.
In Portugal the bull is not
killed and trots out of the ring with his prize, a harem of cows.
Nearby are the fabulous beaches of Arrabida and Sesimbra which are in the Natural Park. There are small coves on a south facing coast and may restaurants serving excellent freshly caught fish.
Lisbon is best visited
by leaving the car on the south of the river and enjoying the ferry ride
into the centre of the capital.
Guests also have the use of the dining room and the sitting room. Meals can be arranged by prior arrangement.
In the distinguished garden that surrounds the palace there is a swimming pool.
Guests at the house can enjoy
riding or shooting or simply relax and unwind in the peaceful atmosphere
of the house and gardens.

|We were lucky enough to have the Palacio do Rio Frio to ourselves for two nights in May. We had a bit of trouble finding it, as the directions do not tell you that you have to cross a traffic bridge to get to the old agricultural zone of Rio Frio. With persistence and a bit of luck, we finally found it. We were greeted by Sophia, one of the siblings, who along with their mother,own this fabulous house. We were given a large and comfortable suite, and had access to a small kitchen, along with the grand dining room, and a number of sitting rooms, all furnished with exquisite antiques. Despite the grandeur, all is very comfortable and we knew we were staying in a much loved home. Sophia and her husband could not do enough for us. They were very kind and considerate. The grounds are very beautiful, and a very nice pool is also available for their guests' use.|
