This week while in Lisbon this past September we were invited by Editor / Curator Gabrielle HB Abada to a VIP wine tasting in the newly renovated Palacio Ludovice Wine Experience Hotel located in the heart of Lisbon amidst the mythical Chiado, Bairro Alto and Principe Real neighbourhoods, facing the breathtaking panoramic views of the São Pedro de Alcâtara Viewpoint and the emblamatic Glória Tram.
Former private residence of João Federico Ludovice, architect to King João V in the 18th century, its rooms and halls are brought back to life as 61 rooms and suites, completely transformed under the eye of the architect Miguel Câncio Martins to bring to life the ultimate luxury boutique hotel experience in the city.
In charge of the renovation works at Palácio Ludovice Wine Hotel is the renowned Portuguese architect and designer Miguel Câncio Martins, internationally recognized for emblematic projects such as the Buddha Bar in Paris, the Opium in London, and for hotels such as Quinta da Comporta in Portugal included in the portfolio of JAJ Investment Group owned by the Chachine family the team behind the upcoming 5 Star Thompson Miami Beach.
Under Miguel's care, the original white-and-blue tiles from the 18th century, its fresco paintings and stucco ceilings were preserved, and a new and palatial accommodation arose, marking the beginning of a new era in this historical landmark.
A privileged location with sumptuous accommodation, an iconic gastronomic experience at Federico restaurant, curated wine tastings at the Porto Wine Institute and the luxurious grapevine wellness treatments at CAUDALIE come together to allow guests to discover Lisbon through the lens of a fine wine connoisseur.
We highly recommend choosing Palacio Ludovice on your trip to Lisbon!
Have a great week!
