I just came back from our trip to the pousada and we had a very pleasant stay there! We stayed in a suite with a huge terrace and a magnificent view of the Alentejo area. The main purpose of our stay was to ride in the stables next to the hotel and it was just fantastic! The horses are great (well schooled lusitano-stallions, a dream to ride them! (but maybe not for beginning riders)) and the instructor teaches the principles of classical dressage with much patience and in an encouraging way.
The hotel itself is beautiful, an ancient monastery that has been very well renovated, it has a great pool and staff is very friendly and eager to meet your needs. The only less positive element is the restaurant of the hotel, we stayed in half board but nevertheless we went to eat outside the hotel because of the poor quality of the food. I would recommend to stay in the hotel but not in half board.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Pousada de Arraiolos, Nossa Senhora da Assuncao, is situated in a sixteenth century convent presenting itself as an example in the art of recovery of historical buildings which combine traditional features with the concepts of modern architecture. The union between tradition and modernisms is celebrated in this Pousada with innovated luxury. During the middle ages the convent served the local evangelistic population. With the restoration into Pousada, the austerity gave way to joy, the simplicity of comfort and to penance to life's pleasures. Staying at this Pousada is a fantastic pretext for getting to know the town of Arraiolos, whose cultural heritage is world renowned, through its carpets which are a true work of art of tapestry. Guests of the Arraiolos hotel park for free on location. The centre of Arraiolos is 1.2 Km from Pousada de Arraiolos, Nossa Senhora da Assuncao, and 25 km from Evora. ... more less
