Octant Lousã

Octant Lousã

In the heart of the historic town of Lousã stands the stately Palace of Lousã, a magnificent 18th -century palace that was once home to the viscountess of Espinhal. The listed historic building is a true tribute to its surroundings. Elegant plasterwork, four-poster beds, scrolled balconies and imperial staircases add grandeur. The picturesque mountain views and charm of the surrounding villages are so intriguing that you won't want to leave this place.

  • Your furry best friend is welcome here for 25 euros per night and will be pampered with a dog basket to sleep in, food and a water bowl, a blanket and a toy.


  • Octant Lousã, also known as "Palácio da Lousã," is an impressive building from the 18th century. Formerly the palace of the viscountess of Espinhal, it is now classified as a Historical Heritage Site.
  • Avid cyclists may bring their beloved bicycle to the room. Some rooms have bicycle racks against the wall for this purpose.


There are rooms housed in the palace. These have historic plasterwork details and ornate window frames. Some of these rooms even have balconies from which you could reenact a scene from Romeo and Juliet in no time. The rooms in the modern wing are more spacious and more suitable for families with children.


At Caractère, we love a good dose of romance. We prefer the rooms in the palace. And preferably the Deluxe Premium room because it has a four-poster bed.


The outdoor pool in the garden can be accessed by a series of impressive steps. You will swim in style at this place. Next to the pool is a sun terrace with loungers and parasols.


In the new spa you will enjoy a heated indoor pool, a sauna and a Cryotherapy tank. A variety of massages and therapies are also available. The therapists have created a menu focused on pure relaxation and inspired by the natural mountain air. They use handmade products containing authentic and natural ingredients. Sports enthusiasts can indulge in the Serra da Lousa. You will find several hiking routes and mountain bike trails. By the way, bikes are available for free at the hotel. If you prefer to take it easy, we heartily recommend a picnic in the middle of nature.


Children of any age are welcome here. The hotel will gladly arrange a babysitter if you want a romantic moment for 2. Price on request.

Food & Drink

Top Table

The winter garden is our favourite spot: a conservatory with floor-to-ceiling windows. A dining spot with mountain views!

Top dish

Make sure to try the slow-cooked lamb with chestnuts in A Terra restaurant. Delicious!

Restaurant A Terra is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Pale wood floors, Japanese pendant lights in the shape of lanterns and ferns on the ceiling reflect the decor. Chef Rafael Marais loves to spoil his guests with unique gastronomic experiences. He aims to combine the simplest ingredients from the sea and the mountains to create the most delicious dishes. The fine dining restaurant A Viscondessa serves luxurious Portuguese cuisine in a beautiful setting. In this historically refined setting with ornate ceilings and beautiful woodwork, you will go on a true culinary journey through time. We were told that the Duke of Wellington once dined here.
