Not sure I understand. Are you intending to drive to Lisbon stopping off on the way, or do you need a recommendation on somewhere to stay in Lisbon?

It's only 3 hours drive.

In that case I will recommend Évora - check it out. it has more history than is good for a single small city. Plenty of nice places to stop for a night.

we stayed in evora at the highly rated Albergaria do Calvario. i seem to remember that they will organize visits to cork factory, vineyards or such in the area. they also recommended driving south via portel - one of those villages which are good for a stroll up the hill and a cold drink. we landed in a small town on the way down towards faro where they had a mini-running of the bulls festival and also drove by a large resevoir and stopped at the dam's visitor center. in any case, stay off the motorway and go by the regional roads.
