We planned to drive from Lisbon to Sevilla with a stop for couple nights in the countryside. I based our decision to stay in Monsaraz mostly on the glowing reviews of Casa Pinto and none in my party were disappointed. The town itself is quiet and charming and provided a wonderful escape from all the city life we'd been experiencing. Our host, Gilberto, was charming and gracious and provided lots of information on the area. We used Monsaraz as a base for exploration of the area and stayed for two nights. The rooms are comfortable (we had Dili and Mombasa), quiet and our view was the lovely church across the plaza. The breakfast was spectacular and the view from the terrace is magnificent.
Be forewarned that there is not a lot going on in this town with things to see or shops or restaurants and services however if you want a peaceful place to stay for a night or two, with a good restaurant that you might eat at two or three times and a spectacular night sky, this is the place to stay!
