We Love Small Hotels is a cherry picked collection of intimate boutique properties giving you private access to the authentic and unhurried Portugal. As their Digital Media Strategist and Brand Ambassador I am deeply involved in promoting boutique hospitality travel in Portugal and assisting their on-line engagement with their community. It is my job to help them promote the personal welcome, unique way of receiving guests and the insider knowledge of the territory that is present in their properties.
We Love Small Hotels was created with the single idea to showcase the most authentic, unique and intimate Portuguese hotels. Not only in the renovated family property, nor the infinity pool overlooking the vineyards, but the hotels who embody the Portuguese essence of a proper good welcome. It says on their website that “the choice is not based on a amount of stars, a legal classification, or a precise number of rooms.
It’s mainly emotional choice.” Places like the Solar Egas Moniz, the Herdade da Matinha and Casa do Sapateiro are flagship properties to what is it like to stay at a We Love Small Hotels property. It’s all about being carried by the scenario, the people and the food into a “modus vivendi” of other times.
