The Pestana Fisherman Village is a boutique hotel in the historic harbour town of Camara de Lobos.
This newly-opened Pestana began life as the ‘Torre Bela’ – the 19th Century seat of government in Camara for many years, before it’s 21st Century renovation into a forty-two room boutique hotel. Although the decor is thoroughly modern, the renovations revealed beautifully preserved oak beams and imposing stone vaults which conjure a feel for the building’s historic origins. These impressive architectural features are softened through the clever use of smooth, monochromatic whites and sapphire blues, reflecting hotel’s proximity to the warm waves of the Atlantic.
A newly constructed three-storey wing houses the guest rooms themselves – cosy Comfort rooms, more spacious Superior rooms and larger-still Superior Family rooms. Between the two buildings, an inner courtyard supplies shade from the noonday sun, whilst the rooftop swimming pool and sun terrace provide a panoramic view across Camara’s enchanting bay and out to sea.
