We were attended (reception and restaurant) by the kind lady who owns the place, Maria do Carmo, and we think we were the only guests. The whole place was rather cold and dark (this is December) but the airco/heater worked fine in our room. The old ranch was very intelligently transformed into an albergaria: the carthouse became reception, the stables are now a bar, the granary is the restaurant. All the installations are nicely decorated (the wine cellar is worth a visit) and you'll find antique pieces everywhere. The Albergaria is located in Arcos, a rural village near Estremoz. We could use the guests computer at our ease. In the end we received a bill with an overall amount and we like to know what cost what (but we did not check on the spot...).
