La Quinta do Serafim
Ranked #17 of 22 Evora B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 17, 2010

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Quinta do Serafim. When I made the booking, I was looking for something reasonably priced and off the beaten path and this hotel certainly fit the bill.

This hotel is actually a converted farm. There are three or four "rooms," including the cottage that we booked. The cottage has a living room, a bedroom, a two sink bathroom and a small kitchen. I don't know what the other accommodations were like.

The strengths:
A beautiful infinity pool which looks north over a vast rural Portuguese plain.
The breakfast - excellent choice served in an amazing dining hall
The owner - friendly and accommodating
The setting - amongst cork groves and in the shadow of the Evoramonte fortress.

A bonus: our cottage looked across a small valley to a hillside where for two mornings in a row a real life shepherd herded a small herd of sheep, whose melodic bells could be clearly heard.

Another bonus: we had the place to ourselves for two days.

Negatives:
We had a hard time finding it, though the owner was helpful when we called him.

If you get your travel inspiration from Conde Nast,Traveler Magazine this probably isn't your kind of place. The lawn and vegetation are not immaculately kept. The door on our cottage needed adjustment. You had to go down a dusty gravel road to get to the hotel. There was no room service. No wireless. No concierge. No bellhop. Etc.

My wife and I have traveled Europe extensively. Our goal is to see as much as we can and do it as inexpensively as possible. At the same time, we want to stay at unique and memorable places. The Quinta do Serafim served our needs quite well.
