“A marvelous country place to relax and enjoy the area.”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

We spent two nights here in February, 2013, and thought it was magical. The rooms are spacious and very quiet, very clean and comfortable. The breakfast bar was well stocked and I was served a light dinner of a salad one evening in my room, as my husband was not well and could not go anywhere and I didn't want a big meal. There are two large, lovely sitting areas off the dining room that are perfect for reading a book or surfing the net and every night there was a beautiful wood fire in the large fireplace. The staff were most helpful with all our requests - we could not have been more pleased with our stay. It was a great base from which to visit Marvao and other interesting spots. There is a hiking trail behind the house if you want to explore the area, which I did, and when the weather is warm the pool must be terrific as it is large and in a lovely setting. There is a very Portuguese restaurant just up the road if you do not want to travel into Portalegre or farther afield for dinner. I would recommend Convento for anyone wanting to visit this area.

In Convento da Provença the weekend tastes like small vacations. The staff is very kind and helpful and the rooms very clean and comfortable. On a hot August weekend the pool is the place to be. Our only remark goes to the lack of some tradicional products at breakfast like regional cheeses.

We arrived late in the afternoon sick of driving, hungry, and needing a drink! We found the place tucked away on a country lane on the way to Marvao. We asked for something to eat and Louisa asked what we wanted in our salad! It was made to our liking with fresh fruits and vegetables. Breakfast of local products was good and it wad fun to squeeze our own orange juice! The bed was very firm.

I can't express just how wonderful a place the Convento da Provenca is. It's clean and comfortable, the hosts very welcoming, friendly and helpful, breakfast is good and it's well worth getting Fatima to cook an evening meal for you. The whole place has a tranquil feeling, totally relaxing and the views are beauitful ... the only noise comes from the tinkling of goat bells.
The nearest town for eating out is Portalegre which is a few minutes drive or if you're feeling braver Marvao isnt too far but the drive back in the dark isn't for the faint hearted as some of the road is steep and windy!

Despite the rather un-presupposing entrance (next door to a large trucking depot) the hotel is surrounded by a large olive tree plantation and one would never know that you were so close to civilization!
The peace & transquility of the hotel and it surroundings (no yapping dogs - no squawking kids - no revving motorbikes which blight our urban life in Estoril) was a blessed relief.
The staff were kind, attentive, friendly yet unobtrusive.
The decor in the hotel itself is quite amazing...rather like a section of a museum, but tastefully done!
The supper was simple fair but well cooked and presented and served with aplomb.
The hotel's "galega" olives are worthy of special mention. Absolutely delicious!
Breakfast was plentiful a topped by the freshest orange juice possible (we squeezed it ourselves!).
This part of Portugal (Serra de São Mamede) is truly beautiful and worthy of a more thorough exploration than one weekend permitted.
All in all............a most enjoyable weekend and a place to be visited again and to be highly recommended.
Perhaps NOT a hotel to take young children!
