If you are a tourist in Portugal there are a few reasons why you should not stay in this hotel. The first is that you probably searched Evora and this guest house is listed under Evora whilst it is in Vila Vicosa, more than an hours drive from Evora. Your round trip will take two hours as you need to... More

Boa localização, atendimento muito cordial, bom pequeno almoço, cama muito confortável, bom sinal wifi. Certamente merecia mais uma quarta estrela. Poderia ter mais canais de tv e o ar condicionado dos quartos à volta é um pouco ruidoso para aqueles que têm dificuldade em adormecer Good location, very friendly service, good breakfast, very comfortable bed, good wifi signal.

the nice surprises here start as soon as you step in, with a super laid back notice at the reception. Then you get in and there is this mix of modern decoration with the old big house antiques and style, you also have several smaller relaxing areas including two pateos where you can still be alone if you want even...

Loved it. I went there for the weekend and loved it. Very central, great silence and very nice people. Nothing to say against and all in favor. The hotel is on the main street of Vila Viçosa, very near to the palace and with several other great restaurants nearby. Good swimming pool and great breakfast.

The Palace is just around the corner, as are nice restaurants and the castle. The big surprise is the extention out the back where the rooms... More

My boyfriend and I have stayed two nights at Solar dos Mascarenhas in April on the way to Sevilla. We are Portuguese and we love the Alentejo area but have not been in Vila Viçosa before. For foreigners to have an idea, usually in Alentejo people take their time to take care of things. But not at this place. When... More

Be warned because it is currently ranked number 11 of 22 hotels in Evora on TripAdvisor and if you are booking in a hurry you won't notice that it is actually in a totally different place!
