Avis VillageGeographic Location


The village of Avis is of decisive importance in the history of Portugal, giving name to one of the most important military orders and also to the most emblematic dynasty, which began after the Succession Crisis of 1383-1385 and which ended about two hundred years later, in 1580, with the beginning of the Philippine dynasty. Its origin is due to the expansion of Christians to the south of Portuguese territory, with the territory being donated to D. Fernão Eanes by King D. Afonso II, with the condition that a castle, a settlement and a conventual church be built there, future headquarters of that military order.

Much of this history remains preserved today, especially due to the Historical Center of Avis which maintains this cultural and historical legacy in the layout of the streets, in the toponymy and in the built heritage. Of this heritage, the castle, the pillory and the old convent of the Order of Avis stand out. But the municipality’s arguments go beyond its monuments. The natural characteristics, enhanced by the abundance of waters in the Maranhão reservoir, make this municipality the ideal place for various sports and leisure activities, such as hiking, cycling and mountain biking, horse riding, sport fishing and water sports, such as canoeing, windsurfing, kitesurfing or paddle.

Herdade do Toucinho Hotel Spa & Villas


The Hotel has a total of 27 studios and 26 double rooms, which makes up 53 accommodation units, with 106 fixed beds.

Targeted at the Silver Age (senior), Double Income No Kids (couples without children), families and groups, namely active tourism.

The double rooms, organized in independent modules, will have double commercialization, being able to be sold individually or by increasing the capacity of the studios, thus hosting a family or a group of friends.

One of the features that distinguishes the development is the fact that it provides accommodation in its main building, close to all the facilities and services, but also a set of modules that are made up of studios and double rooms and that aim to be spaces of greater privacy and exclusivity, aware of a higher purchasing power segment, of longer stays and families and groups that want a more private and peaceful coexistence, in greater spatiality, but without giving up all the set of services, facilities and amenities that the hotel offers. In this way, different accommodation environments and experiences are provided, supported by different services, activities and programs.

Complementary services will be offered to the accommodation, such as a restaurant and spa – the first in the municipality of Avis – and a set of infrastructures that allow a daily experience within the estate: swimming pool, platform for events, paddle tennis court, playground and pedestrian circuits. The proximity to the reservoir will also allow the provision of equipment for water sports, such as stand-up paddle boards or water bikes. Bicycles will also be available for the exploration of the surrounding territory.
