Cycling through Pedralva, we spent a night at the Aldeia da Pedralva and were glad it was only one night. Read on for details. The visual charm of Pedralva is due, in part, to the continuous rows of dwellings, like townhomes, that have been restored, updated and retrofitted. There are definite limitations to the retrofitting and updating. The pair of small panel heaters were useless in the living room and bedroom. The bathroom is unventilated and unheated making the shower during this cold March day unpleasant. The hard lumpy bed and thin, dense pillow were among the worst bed/pillows I've tried to sleep on. WiFi was only available from the hotel lobby and restaurant, not the individual rooms. If I return to Pedralva, I'll look to stay elsewhere.
This seems like a great idea, a picture-postcard village in the Algarve countryside, rejuvenated as a quirky hotel with individual small houses instead of hotel rooms. Possibly we were unlucky with the house we were allocated but after two nights I was longing to leave. In late February the village was a building site with heavy demolition work going on all day and a lot of dust and noise as a result. We soon both developed coughs. All surfaces inside the house were dusty from nearby construction, and it also smelled of stale cigarette smoke, although supposedly nonsmoking. Our house had one small window high up and one at street level so you had to keep it shuttered for privacy. As a result the interior was always dark, and dank too as it was built into a sloping site with the lower rear room underground. The houses have no outdoor area but there’s a nice seating area at reception which we used. At least our house was warm and the shower worked well but others in our party complained of no heating and poor water pressure in their houses. There is a fully equipped kitchen, including a fancy Nespresso coffee machine, but there is no shop onsite or nearby so if you are walking or cycling without a car (like many guests off season) you can’t use the kitchen. They don’t even provide basic tea/coffee/milk in the houses, you have to walk to the bar if you want a hot drink and don’t have your own provisions. Fortunately breakfasts and the onsite restaurant were outstandingly good and I have done a separate 5 star review for the food. Possibly this place is much better in high season when the builders have left and the dark interiors provide respite from the summer heat, but I can only review based on our experience, which was very disappointing. …
A superb place to relax and to enjoy the atmosphere of this café and restaurant. A very professional service. What a catalyst impact the investment of a Lisboa developer provoked for this small town( not far away from the dream beach of Amado. Tge menu card offers a lot of choices— but do not arrive before 12.30 for ordering one of the tempting luncheons. As rota Vincente Walkers we had only The pleasure to enjoy fresh orange juices/ snacks and god coffee..Tgecdesign remarkable— and the comfort and the architectural design created inside: fabulous.
We walked into Pedralva to find a wonderful unique village away from it all! Very friendly staff, excellent food and delightful, comfortable little houses for us to stay in. Well organised for walkers with packed lunches available. Will hopefully return,
