Aparthotel Cooking and Nature

Passion, adventure, romance, protection. My jaw dropped more and more with every room I was shown. I'd never seen anything like it before. The rooms and apartments at Cooking and Nature each have their own theme. Or rather: their own emotion. Which is represented in every single detail. The happy room features bright colours, the fantasy room is full of mirrors... Owner Rui was showing me around. ‘An emotional hotel. That’s what this is’, he said with pride in his voice. ‘More than just design. We emphasise enjoyment. Of flavours, colours and scents. Of good food. Nature.’ And relaxation, I thought as we passed the modern wellness wing and its delicious fragrances.

Then, I smelled something else: the aroma of good food. Rui took notice and brought me to the restaurant. He sat me down on a chair, walked over to the chef and came back with two steaming plates and two glasses of dark red wine. ‘This is why the hotel is called Cooking and Nature emotional hotel. We create a different menu for each season. All dishes are fresh and our chef Nuno turns every dinner into a party’. With my mouth full of said party, I nodded enthusiastically. ‘And if you want, you can prepare your own seasonal dish under his supervision. An alternative cooking workshop.’

After lunch, I walked out to the swimming pool. I sank into a fatboy and gazed into the green garden. What emotions was I feeling right now? Joy. Fun. Relaxation. What a magnificent location.

The best way to discover your destination is by car!

Are you booking a flight holiday? Then a rental car of the lowest category (Small Class) is selected as standard for your trip and you have the option of upgrading the rental car. You can pick up the rental car at the airport and drive to your accommodation yourself. 

Are you booking a holiday with own transportation? Then the rental car is not included in your trip and you can (at some destinations) book the rental car if you are interested. When you book your rental car, you can pick it up at your destination and drive to your accommodation yourself. The transport to the pick-up point of the rental car is arranged by you.

  • The prices on this page are upgrade prices. They are indicative for your selected travel duration in the chosen season.
  • The car models shown are indicative of the category they fall into. A rental car in the Small Classe with full insurance cover is included as standard for your holiday. After booking, we will check if the chosen car is available. If it is not, we will try to offer you a suitable alternative. In exceptional cases it may happen that no rental car is available. In both cases we will contact you to discuss the options. 
  • Are you the main driver? Then you must meet the minimum or maximum age requirements as stated in the car rental terms and conditions, have a credit card in your name (including PIN number) and a valid driving license.

Tip: If you are travelling with 4 or more people, it is advisable to book an upgrade or an extra car. You can select the car upgrade in the booking steps. Do you want to book an extra car? Please contact us.
