During our 9 days in Portugal we stayed in various types of lodging - basic hotel, luxury hotel, a former castle, and an apartment. While all were good, Passado de Pedra was our favorite. The owner was welcoming, despite our late arrival. Our room was spacious, comfortable, and spotless. The common TV sitting area beside our bedroom gave us extra space to relax. Recent renovations were very well done. Breakfast was delicious, and breakfast conversation with our hostess was great - from local history and nearby sites to visit, to discussion of international politics. It was all perfect. (And we didn't mind the church bells at all.) I'd highly recommend Passado de Pedra to anyone traveling through Portugal.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This house belonged to the great grandfather of the present owner. We are not sure about the year of its construction, but above the lintel of the entry in the first floor is engraved the date of 1810. The architectonic group was formed by one main building with three floors, two as dwelling-house and the ground-floor with two "lojas" for animals. This was typical of the traditional houses in this region. Besides this building, there existed a wine mill and a building where the straw was kept. The house was rebuilt maintaining its original plan and using, whenever it was possible, the same type of materials (wood and stone), combined with more up to date architectural materials and objects. ... more less
