We Love Small Hotels is the result of a passion for a different, authentic and unhurried Portugal. The idea came about with the aim of combining small charming Portuguese addresses with nature activities, not forgetting the elements that make this a remarkable experience: the people, traditions and roots, whether they are gastronomic, cultural or historical. The trails that we have designed were created with partners with strong experience in hiking, cycling and bird watching. We have combined our passion for the country and experience in the tourism industry with specialist partners. We are Portuguese, truly passionate about what we have to offer: the most authentic experience of this destination so you can not only visit Portugal, but truly know Portugal and experience Portugal. The best souvenirs are the memories you will carry with you.
