Hotel Atrio Geschichte

Our History

The Atrio was built in 2001 on the models of the old mansions of wealthy merchants and landowners, called quintas. The hotel was conceived as a "bed and breakfast", with a personal and individual service. The 10 original rooms were all individually designed. To meet the expectations and requirements of the guests more, it became necessary to add a restaurant and some more rooms.

The original site of the Hotel Atrio covered 4,000 m². However, the owners quickly bought more surrounding land to ensure tranquillity, sea views and parking spaces for the future. Today, the hotel stands on a terrain of 17,000m². In winter 2015, the Quinta was renovated and expanded to 22 rooms.
