I remember this hotel from staying here a night or 2 a long time ago with my family. Turns out this October I was in the area with my girlfriend and we decided to stay here for a night. The hotel is well located within the village, very close to the Palácio Ducal and a short walk away from Praça... More

Excellent, quiet and modern decoration place. Nice and friendly staff. Good breakfast and 4 restaurants within a couple of minutes walk. Well located to visit monuments and city center. Will never again pay more at higher rated neighborhood hotels!

Solar dos Mascarenhas is maybe a fabulous mid 18th century palace that has been over restored - but it has great service (really friendly), all the modern amenities (flat screen tv, etc) and a lovely swimming pool.

The best spot for an exclusive and special stay. Filled with surprises from the excellent location, the food, the staff and, of course, the beautiful and unique Vila Viçosa with the huge diversity of monuments of historical importance in the portuguese history!

A hidden gem of a hotel, with beautifully refurbished modern, comfortable rooms and efficient air conditioning (very important in the Alentejo summer!). The pool looked inviting but was only just being filled, due to us visiting before the main season. The hotel is run by two lovely ladies and their staff, who cannot do enough to help, whether with suggestions... More

We had a great time in this lovely hotel with a very nice staff. The hotel is very beautifully renovated, the new wing of the hotel where the rooms are located is very cozy and the rooms have lots of light and space and are beautifully decorated. The breakfast has many local and regional products and many choices. The staff... More

Bike Portugal booked us (2 couples) rooms here for one night during a 7 Day bike tour of the region. Check in was quick and we were able to use the pool before we left for dinner. The pool was clean but cold due to it being in the shade of the building. The front desk gave us 2 recommendations... More

one of the highlights on our Portugal tour 2015: the quiet rooms of this place are on the new annex building on the backside of the old house. Very beautiful accessories and decor, attention to details. some reviewers said the walls are paperthin, which I can't confirm as we were only 3 couples in May 2015. Very friendly frontdesk personell,... More

If you are a tourist in Portugal there are a few reasons why you should not stay in this hotel. The first is that you probably searched Evora and this guest house is listed under Evora whilst it is in Vila Vicosa, more than an hours drive from Evora. Your round trip will take two hours as you need to... More

This small lodge is very well located in the heart of the city were you can walk to every point of interest in Vila Viçosa. The service is very good and people are extremely nice and sympathetic. The room are very good. The only improvement is related with the insulation of the window but, who cares when you are in... More
