#2 of 13 B&Bs / Inns in Portalegre
The Convento da Provença – Rural Hotel, located at Monte Paleiros, Portalegre, Alentejo in the Natural Park of S. Mamede Mountain and center of the Tourist Triangle of North Alentejo (Castelo de Vide, Portalegre, Marvão), is part of a rural environment where tranquillity and silence offer true moments of rest and relaxation. A real monument, the Convento da Provença (with origins in the remote Middle Ages) sits at the foot of the Serra de Frei Álvaro, a location that ensures magnificent views over the plains and the hills where cork oaks and olive trees domain, in a calm and welcoming atmosphere that combines history, nature and religion with all the comforts and amenities essential for an unforgettable stay. The legacy of centuries of history are reflected in the tasteful decoration based on past history and the monastic life, the preservation of old walls and in the maintenance of most of its original features, which highlight its seven rooms and two suites whose names are a homage to the castles of the District of Portalegre.

We stayed in Convento da Provença for a weekend. We were a group of 6 adults and 8 children. The hotel is very nice, with a lot of history and cachet. The pool is very good and both kids and adults loved it. The surroundings are beautiful, with breathtaking views of Serra de São Mamede. There are interesting hiking paths around the hotel and a few medieval towns that are great (Marvão probably tops the list). The staff at the hotel is super friendly, always going the extra mile to make you feel at home and to help uou enjoy your stay. Thank you for that! We will certainly be back!

After a short tour of the property, and very old building adjacent to a medieval site, we were offered a room overlooking the ancient church's altar. Very confortable and quiet, surrounded by nature (an olive tree estimated more than 1'500 years old!), outdoor swimming pool available. Breakfast included, nice extensive buffet.

Very nice and tranquil location, a special atmosphere to feel comfortable. Super friendly staff - top service. During the cold time of the year the rooms may be a little cold, even so there is aircon in each room. Sadly the owner is not looking very much into maintenance and some necessary investments. This B&B has so much potential, but is not using it.

We stayed one night in late Feb. We were the only guests and the staff person treated us well. As an old building it is interesting to stay there. It was cold and damp during our stay. While the guest room was warm with the heater the common rooms were cold even with a fire.
