It felt like a privilege staying in a hotel that's more like a museum, in the best possible way. We spent three nights here for a friend's wedding and the staff were friendly and professional. It felt like a family-run outfit. The hotel was peaceful and in a great location, albeit quite a drive from Lisbon. Room and communal areas...

We stayed here for 5 days at end of August and the first few days of September 2016 for our daughter's wedding.. It is a magical place with incredibly welcoming staff who found nothing too much trouble. The word 'convento' in Portuguese is misleading as it means 'monastery' for monks or 'convent' for women, in this case it was a...

You will find that the hotel, itself, is not a top hotel. However, what we have here is much more than an hotel. You will have the experience of discovering an hidden treasure in the middle of Alentejo. The building (a very ancient convent) is stunning with fabulous tiles and the tranquility and beauty of the hotel will guide you...

Actually, we stayed 2 nights at this Poussada/Museum and we loved every minute of it. The rooms are made of the original monk cells and are quirky, beautiful and comfortable with 'oldfashioned' marble bathrooms. Everywhere you look and go, inside and outside, is spectacular. The reception provides you with every information you need to explore it all. But you can...

We have just stayed three nights here. It was a high point of our two-week tour of Alentejo. The surroundings are beautiful and peaceful, and the convent itself is breathtaking. It's not really fair to compare it to the pousadas, it is a privately owned hotel with a distinct personality. It's not as polished as the pousadas, but that doesn't...

On a rugby trip with a team of veterans this was our base. One of the most spectacular places I've stayed, on top of a hill surrounded by forest, this restored convent is a real 'get away from it all' place. Well worth exploring the nooks and crannys as there are terrazas and swimming pools, lounges and sitting rooms all...

Such a lovely find! On a stormy day in Portugal, we were greeted with warm smiles and a warm room! All details lovingly attended to at this mountain retreat! We love the rustic restoration process! All around are cork oak, olives, oranges and lemons (we even picked a few with permission of course) 🌹. The staff were all warm, kind...

We spent 2 nights in one of their rooms in the annex. The room was spacious and had all the expected amenities. The room was very cold and when staff could not resolve the issue with the heater in the room they provided us with an auxiliary heater which made the room very comfortable. The setting of the hotel is...

This 12th century convent houses one of Portugal's largest tile collections. We stayed in the 'Museum' wing where the monks lived and enjoyed the same fireplace that they used (except we had heat as well). Our room was very good. Food in the restaurant was excellent. Eduardo and his service staff do an admirable job all around. Beautiful setting and...
