Rua Emídio Navarro, 2 3050-224 Luso Portugal
The 2-star Alegre Hotel is a delightful, intimate boutique hotel nested in the exquisite woodlands of Luso spa and the Bussaco national forest, a wellness retreat in the center of Portugal, just 20 km north of the university city of Coimbra, 2 hours from Lisbon and 45 minutes from Oporto International Airport and city. The hotel was built in 1859 to be the summer residence of the Count of Graciosa and it was the first manor house to ever been built in Luso. Luso is a traditional Portuguese spa known to exist since the early XIX century. Its water is the most famous in Portugal because of its special physical and chemical characteristics. 100 metres from the hotel, is the Bussaco National Park, a paradise on earth, full of exotic trees brought from overseas by Portuguese sailors, with cold springs of crystalline water and dramatic view points over the sea line. In the early XIX century, Bussaco was the stage for one of the most important battles of the Peninsular War, opposing the Duke of Wellington against Massena and marking the beginning of the end of the French and Napoleonic invasions.
