I f you're looking for relaxation and romance, this is the place...35 km from Lisbon, this hotel lies in the top of a mountain, with fortified walls and historic buildings and remains just few meters from the entry. Very kind people (Fernanda, Orlando, Diogo and Artur) will provide a pleasant stay in this 18 century building (but in good state of conservation). Ask for a glass of the licorous Moscatel, region wine. Clean rooms, with lots of space (I had a sofa on mine, 115), heat/cool system, honest restaurant (with delicious portuguese traditional deserts). The hotel area is itself a place to visit. Not good : of course, forget this place if you don't have a car. Bad : cable internet (?), having to renew the password daily and the phones got silent for a entire day...communication can be a problem here. I left the hotel at 8:00am with nobody in the front desk...I took my luggage by myself. I will comeback.
