My wife and I stayed here overnight whilst travelling to the Algarve. After reading some of the reviews on TripAdvisor we decided to try Casa do Colegio Velho. My goodness we were not disappointed. The hotel was like walking into someone's luxury villa with beautiful and luxurious furnishings. The living on the cske was the wonderful reception and discussions with... More

My girlfriend booked this hotel for one night as she was attending a wedding in Vila Viçosa. We had a great night's sleep - the bed is big and comfy and the facilities are excellent. The manager was lovely and let us stay on the next day by the pool as she had no other guests. Would highly recommend it.

Without any questions, I recommend this beautiful little place to anyone wanting to visit the inland part of Alentejo! A calm, well looked after, friendly, super comfy place, with a seriously friendly owner and staff. A massive thank you for a lovely stay over the Christmas holidays!

We're visiting Portugal, my home country, for Christmas, slowly exploring a different part of Alentejo and staying in different places. Because of its fabulous reviews, I've booked this place for the night - and what a delight! Calm, welcoming, spacious yet cosy and homy.... We will definitely come back!

Manuela lives here as it is her family home. It has also been a college for Jesuit priests. She has extensive knowledge about the area and it's history. The house is old and very cool,even cold, when it is hot outside as it has been in this October. The weather has been glorious. The hotel is in a small street.... More

We stayed in this lovely house with a group of friends and everyone just loved it: the kindness of the hosts, the atmosphere of the house beautifully decorated with a personal and sensible touch. It's a perfect place to stay when enjoying a holiday in Alentejo.

The Casa was very easy to find and is very conveniently located in the delightful town of Vila Vicosa, close to the Palace and many good restaurants.

I agree, it is a little gem in Vila Vicosa. My wife and I stayed here for one night. A little bit hidden in the street, nice courtyard and the building inside gives you a warm, welcoming feeling. The story of the building is very interesting, the owner very friendly. Our room was spacious and clean, the bathroom more than... More
