Hotel of the week: Janeiro de Cima, Fundão, Portugal

Janeiro de Cima is tucked away in a centuries-old village that is hidden from most tourists.

Tucked away in the “vast, hilly, and forest-covered landscapes” of Portugal’s Algarve region, this centuries-old ghost village is hidden from most tourists, said Jeanine Barone in National Geographic Traveler. Constructed from dark stone schist and honey-colored stones from the Zêzere River, Janeiro de Cima’s two casas offer a “window into Portugal’s rich cultural heritage.” Guests can cruise down the Zêzere in a barca, a wooden boat once used by villagers, and return to bask in the sunset with a glass of homemade honey brandy.
