Thank you Christine for letting us share in the Marvao experience. You keep your guesthouse immaculate, you provide everything we could want or need, and all with a smile, a laugh, and a warm welcome.
Breakfast is fresh, nutritious and filling, the shower has lots of pressure (!), the bed is comfortable and the living room is an oasis of calm.
The drive up through the portcullis and the narrow streets can be scary but the final destination and the views make it all worthwhile.
I/we will return
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

This house has been theater in the early twentieth century and was rebuilt in 1951 to be a boys' school on the ground floor. On the first floor was the dwelling house of the teacher. The teacher placed this school Freedom Gomes Esteves, mother of the owners of the house, taught here until the construction of the new school in 1968, opposite the square. You can also point out that the name of this house is due to a centuries-old tree existed in the square in front of the facade of the house, which was later withdrawn. However, another curious fact about the house is clearly the names of the five bedrooms it exists be inspired by the many leaves of the trees scattered along the Serra de Sao Mamede, including Lime Tree, chestnut, elm, poplar and walnut that can be sighted the magnificent balcony this house undoubtedly having from one of the best Marvao views. ... more less
