Set in the early 20th century, Vidago Palace is a lush, romantic period drama from Acorn TV that follows the lives of two aristocratic families, the Montellanos and the Espíritos Santos, as they come together under the roof of a luxurious Portuguese hotel. With exquisite attention to detail and a dedication to authenticity, the series transports viewers to a bygone era of glamour, intrigue, and passion.

At the heart of the show is the character of Carlota (Mikaela Lupu), a young woman from a wealthy family who arrives at Vidago Palace with her parents in tow. Despite her privileged upbringing, Carlota is restless and yearns for adventure and excitement. She soon finds it in the form of Álvaro (David Seijo), a dashing and charismatic young man who works at the hotel as a tennis instructor.

Álvaro is instantly drawn to Carlota's beauty and spirit, and the two quickly become involved in a passionate romance that is complicated by the differences in their social status. As they navigate the challenges of their relationship, they are also swept up in a larger world of political intrigue and economic upheaval, as Portugal struggles to modernize in the face of social and cultural change.

Meanwhile, the Espírito Santos family, who own the hotel, are grappling with their own issues. Patriarch Ferreira (Nicolau Breyner) is deeply concerned about the financial viability of the hotel, and is determined to make some difficult decisions to keep it afloat. His son, Diogo (Pedro Barroso), is more interested in the glamorous atmosphere of the hotel, and spends his days flirting with guests and indulging in his own hedonistic pleasures.

As Carlota and Álvaro's relationship becomes more intense, their families become increasingly entangled in each other's lives, leading to a web of secrets, lies, and betrayals that threaten to tear them apart. Against the backdrop of a rapidly changing world, they must all learn to adapt to new realities and make difficult choices, even as they try to hold on to the traditions and values of the past.

With stunning cinematography, sumptuous costumes, and a talented, international cast, Vidago Palace is a feast for the senses that will transport viewers to a world of glamour, passion, and intrigue.
