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.

We stayed here for a weekend in October and can thorougly recommend this for anyone wanting to experience the delights of the 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. There is ample free parking right ourside the door as... More

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

Vila Viçosa is a hidden gem location where tourists are rare and locals still go about their daily lives. Casa do Colegio Velho is a rare blend of homely, personal service and top-notch quality. Everything matters to the owner whose interest in her residents' well-being and satisfaction with their stay was almost too attentive at times. Attention to detail was... More

We, my wife and me, arrived at Vila Viçosa after lunch in a very sunny and hot day. To find the Casa do Colégio Velho was not a difficult task as it is near the Royal Palace, the main monument of the city. As we ring the bell, a very simpathetic lady welcome us. The ambience inside was very cosy,... More

this is a marvelous place to stay in vila vicosa. i don't think it has been open as a guesthouse for very long, but once the word gets out, i suspect people will clamor to stay here. it is a bit hard to find at first - the best way is to find the pousada. in front of the pousada,... More
