Not kidding - this beautiful hotel in the lovely Alentejo countryside of Portugal is so beautiful and so unusual that staying there is a reason to travel thousands of miles to experience. The sleeping rooms are attractive and comfortable (with private terraces and separate bath and shower), the historic chapel within the confines is lovely, the wine tasting room is... More

Lovely setting and a thoughtful renovation makes this a good choice for a few days. Easy access to Evora and the many nearby walled villages. Rooms are a good size and comfortable, though showing a little wear here and there. The weak spot is the dining. Breakfast was good with a lot of choice, but the staff seemed to struggle... More

If you have the opportunity to see some pictures of this place before it was renovated, you'll have doubts that it was utterly ruined just 5 years (or so) ago. This Hotel is an old monastery, that pours history from it's walls and it has become probably one of the best places to stay in Alto-Alentejo. The rooms (and beds)... More

This is a tribute to a man who had the audacity to recover an old ruin of a convent to become a luxury boutique hotel. Everything is beautifully restored to its formal glory and still offers you a unique experience. Rooms are large and well equipped with a very good toilet, not mentioning the excellent bed and sleep quality. The... More

The minute we arrived at this boutique hotel (formerly a convent), I got excited. The property's uniqueness and tranquil beauty transports even the most weary traveler into a spiritual state. When one enters the cozy lobby area the very professional staff immediate greets you (we were presented with a little cordial). As others have stated in their review, the tour... More

The management and staff of this hotel clearly love this place. It is an amazing hotel with a rich history. Take the 5 pm tour hosted by the manager. He has dedicated his life to this place. The wine bar is unique and great. The entire experience is the best we had in Portugal.
