MS Collection Aveiro - Palacete de Valdemouro

Historic opulence meets modern chic in ‘Portuguese Venice’

Former home of eminent novelist Eça de Queiroz, today the Palacete de Valdemouro breathes new life into a chapter of Portuguese history. Restored to its original grandeur, 18th century architecture blends flawlessly with contemporary additions, while five-star comforts allow guests to reconnect with a more leisurely pace of life. 

Cool hallways and lofty ceilings offer a welcome respite from Aveiro’s sunny streets, and a sense of space and luxury is felt from lobby to bedroom. Eça’s literary legacy is palpable too, with suites inspired by his characters, a reading room, and a striking mural connecting past to present. If relaxation is on the agenda, look no further than the atmospheric Moments Spa, where a sweeping colonnade and the sound of water set a mellow tone. Feeling refreshed, it’s time to explore the bar menu. Order a cocktail to the intimate patio and let the conversation flow, before sitting down to a sublime dinner in the hotel restaurant.

While tranquillity reigns in the palace, Aveiro’s historic centre is a whirlwind of activity. Make a grand exit onto Rua José Estevão, and in a few steps you’ll find the Teatro Aveirense, Aveiro City Museum, and the Moliceiros pier. Embark on a private tour of the city’s jewel-like canals and you’ll soon see why it deserves the nickname ‘The Venice of Portugal’. To explore further afield, tap into the hotel team’s local knowledge – the creation of bespoke, personalised experiences is all part of the service.

A place to return. The realy luxury is behind the story it tells.

To stay in a place where your emotions are shared with the guests and the kindness the staff recieved me and took care of the details to make the stay pleasant and unique. The real luxury of the hotel is hidden behind the story inside of the pleace and the kindness of the personnel.

The staff is very kind and helpful. The amenities invite for relaxation.

The inner pool is underneath the outer pool, this last one with glass floor, which allows you to be indoors with a great view to the sky. The spa area is quiet enough and allows you to fully relax.
