This is the place to be: a tasteful, luxuriously renovated old convent full of lovely furniture and with very friendly personnel. The town has a couple of highlights, a.o.t. the Bragança duke's palace, next to the pousada and the centre of the town, the castle: a top city. Everything is fine here; I'll be back.

This wonderful old Convent of the rich is full of history as is the town itself. The rooms are huge and very nicely designed to capture and retain historical features. We were here over Christmas when it was cold and all rooms were comfortably warm. The convent is a treasure trove in itself and this complimented by the historical museums... More

The "Pousada" after being reformed has now all the conditions to receive us like kings. Very pleasant rooms, combining modern comforts with the weight of its history. Located in the center of Vila Viçosa, allows us to know the whole village without using the car. Finally, enjoy and dine in the Pousada restaurant as it is very good. The service... More

Stayed one night on a business trip and really liked this lovely old convent. Rooms are huge and quiet and keep that ancient trait with the modern comforts twist. Beds are very confortable. It's right next to the Palace and an excelent base to explore this pictoresque village.

I and my wife like to be in these historical hotels, gives you a bit of what dukes and duchesses had feel, well, if you really try anyway. The ambiance in this hotel is very well succeeded; interior and exterior, for example cloisters still have parts of original paintings in the walls. We had a very good experience.

This was an amazing stay in an old convent that was hundreds of years old. the room was large with a lovely roof top deck for stargazing. You could enjoy some time just wandering around the beautiful building and it's grounds. Breakfast buffet was tops!

Wow! This property impressed me with its size, art, and grace. A former "rich girls" convent (they reportedly brought their maids with them) is massive. The room had a big bed, plenty of space to pack/unpack/repack, was quiet, and had a large separate bath/changing area. There is art tucked into every corner of this property - the wall paintings have... More
