Large bedroom and bathroom with private sitting room; air conditioning; extra pillows in the wardrobe; our only quibble was that there were only 2 clothes hangers but we were, unfortunately, only there for 1 night.
Rita is amazingly helpful, she directed us to an excellent restaurant in Arraiolos and have a voucher so that we received a 20% discount of the price of our delicious meals - asparagus was "in season"!
The next morning, great choice of locally produced food arrayed on the buffet with the offer of freshly cooked eggs to choice - the dining room is enormous - lots of sofas and armchairs, even some inside the huge open fireplace where a whole tree was burning...
The little shop is stocked full of locally produced food and crafts - all at very reasonable prices -
my husband so enjoyed the jam on his breakfast bread that we bought 2 jars of it to bring home.
We stay there again and would not hesitate to recommend it a a place to stay to experience the peace and serenity - good for birding and wild flowers!
