Travel and reading are great ways to broaden one’s mind, and this hotel in Óbidos, Portugal called The Literary Man is home to over 50,000 books that may see true book lovers never even leaving their hotel!
As The Huffington Post reports, located just outside the historic center of a small medieval town called Óbidos, this hotel is packed full of books, some of which are even for sale. The Literary Man is in good company as Óbidos itself has seen an increase in bookshops opening as well as its own literary festival.
The books you’ll find in the grand hotel range from vintage classics, recent bestsellers, and even cookbooks. As if that weren’t enough to tempt book lovers, the hotel also features a gin bar and a massage parlor. The rooms are simple but cozy and begin at only $90 per night.
No doubt there is plenty for tourists to do and see in Óbidos, but we get the feeling that most bookworms wouldn’t leave the room, unless maybe to get a massage. For more information, be sure to check out the hotel’s official website.

Jill Ashton graduated in 2004 from The University of Central England with a First Class BA Hons in Jewellery and Silversmithing. Now, as Betty Pepper the artist based in the South East of England, she spends a lot of time making each unique piece of art and jewellery. Betty’s literary-inspired art is created from silver wire and fabric fragments, and any orphaned books she finds while out on a ‘rummage’. She gives life to old and ruined books once more by fashioning quirky and whimsical pieces from their pages.
Betty’s work is displayed and sold across Europe from Glasgow to Paris, with collections and commissions also available via MadeByHandOnline. The artwork can also be found at worldwide exhibitions- most recently in the UK (Suffolk, and Leeds) and Munich, Germany.
