I stayed in this hotel on rowing camp with my university. Prior experience led me to have low expectations but Herdade da Cortesia blew those out the water. The hotel is tidy, well arranged, with clean and spacious rooms, lots of outdoor seating areas, lovely pool as well as a beautiful location. The food served was tasty and good quality,... More

Breakfast when you want it, a beautiful pool, fantastic countryside and spacious, comfortable rooms and bathrooms. Great food in the restaurant, especially the melon soup and wild rabbit starters. Service a little eccentric at times depending on the waitress!

Although today it is increasingly common hotels trying to be "out of normal" this hotel achieves it withe its pool with an infinity edge, surrounded by poufs, olive trees and a bar, etc., a deck where you wanna spend your lazy mornings but particularly with the excellent work of landscape architecture. The rooms are spacious and have a decoration in... More

If you’re looking for piece and quiet, Herdade da Cortesia is the right place for you. This charming hotel is located in the middle of a farm, very close to the village of Avis, in the region of Alentejo in Portugal. The rooms are very elegant, cozy and, pardon me for saying this, a true invitation to sex. Large windows... More

Amazing modern hotel, perfect to break with day to day routines... The hotel relaxing atmosphere combined with the endless and timefreezing Alentejo's landscapes made of this an unique experience...certainly to repeat in years to come. Clean and spacious rooms, very well decorated! Good but slightly overpriced food... We surely enjoyed and make the most out of our stay in Avis...... More

We needed a place to get away and relax for a few days and we found it! This is hands down one of the best hotels that I have ever stayed in Alentejo region - a mixture of modern architecture with the unspoilt countryside. It's right next to Avis, a small town where you can find a couple of good... More
