Welcome to Solar Dom Silvestre

The Solar Dom Silvestre is a Bed & Breakfast manor house located in the medieval village of Castelo Novo (New Castle, in English) - one of the twelve "Historic Villages" of Portugal - which in turn is nestled in the southern flank of the Gardunha Mountains.

The Solar Dom Silvestre, dated 1616, was recently restored and elegantly renovated. Today it is an oasis of modernity, comfort, peace and warm hospitality.
The decoration is harmonious, combining traditional and contemporary styles,  with enchanting details to provide a warm and cozy ambience and each of the bedrooms has its own unique personality.

Here, while tasting the luxury of time, guests can enjoy the lightness of the limpid air and the relaxing silence, interrupted only by the village bells, the melodious sound of the natural spring water that flows from the many old fountains of the village or the chirping of birds in beautiful crystalline mornings and velvet sunsets.

To loose yourself in the small streets and alleys of Castelo Novo, is to explore centuries of history and to be delighted with its personages and the legends of the popular imagination; is to discover the secrets each wall contains; is to be enchanted by textures, colours and smells; is to be seduced by the magic of this charming and endearing timeless small village.

The Gardunha Mountains contain a rich geomorphological heritage and some unique or rare and protected species of fauna and flora. They are integrated in the Natura 2000 Network and the Naturtejo Geopark.
They are also a meeting point for believers in OVNIs, some of them claiming that they already had encounters with aliens over there(!) ...

Come to discover the many treasures that the region has to offer and enjoy your stay!
