They once called it the “Story Incubator”, having “walls that tell tales ”and chests that overflow with secrets…
Bacharéis Charming House was born from an exciting project, the rehabilitation of a building constructed in 1878. This house, with much history, now gains a new life to accommodate our guests looking to discover Portugal’s Central Region coast with all the comfort they deserve. During their stay, the house will also show our guests, glimpses of its former residents' history as well as that of our town, Figueira da Foz!
The decor is incredibly sober, providing a feeling of cosiness and belonging. The main architectural features of the building have been carefully preserved and features of its original construction can be seen.
Here, every detail matters, from the tiles found in the kitchen that now decorate the breakfast room, to the delicately worked plaster ceilings, and the rigorous selection of regional products that make up the delicious breakfast.
This is ours and yours Bacharéis Charming House, an exciting place to discover in the heart of Figueira da Foz! Welcome!
Exquisitely Crafted for Life Lovers!
The Bacharéis Charming House is a corollary of the shared interest and respect for the heritage and the inner lives of the spaces. Looking at Figueira da Foz’s historical center, specifically its architectural, urban, historical, and social richness but also its unfortunate progressive desertification, our aspiration to create a distinguished tourism offer for the city was clear. It was evident that any investment in the hospitality sector should be in the town’s historical center, favoring rehabilitation instead of a new building. Our project was intended to contribute to the revival of the city’s historical center through the promotion of an all-year-round hotel unit, but doing so through the intrinsic richness of the building, the accommodation options tailored to the customer, and the promotion of the local region.
Once the building that could accommodate the house’s design was located – 10, Rua de São Julião, a multidisciplinary team was assembled, composed of an architect, Alane de Holanda, and a historian, Francisco Queiroz dedicated exclusively to studying the property and its conversion in a hotel. The result – due to the richness of what History bequeathed and the uniqueness of the building’s facade, exceeded every expectation and the result is ours, yours, and the city's. We look forward to your visit.
