“Wonderful Country Guesthouse”
Reviewed 5 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We spent five wonderful days at this extremely comfortable country house. While it's drenched in history, the rooms and baths have been updated to the highest standards. It's a very few minutes' drive from Evora (where there's free parking just outside the city wall) and perfectly located for visiting other historical towns in the Alentejo region. We loved being there in April/May, when the surrounding area is vibrantly green from earlier spring rains and lush with wildflowers among the olive trees.

The staff is friendly and helpful, and the breakfasts were fantastic: new and different delicious cakes every day supplemented the extensive buffet offerings. (If you're lucky, you'll get Vittoria's amazing pasteis de nata when they're still warm from the oven.)

Home away from home, countryside house with all the amenities of being at home. Quiet and minutes away from Évora.

“Beautiful quiet hotel in the countryside just outside of Evora.”

We stayed in a wonderful separate house. The space was comfortable, nicely decorated, and absolutely silent at night. The main building is lovely as well. Breakfast in the morning was excellent. The area is surrounded by grazing lands, though the only animals we saw were far away. It is a short drive to Evora where it is easy to park on the outskirts of the small city for free and where everything is then in walking distance. If you have a car this is a great option, probably better than being in Evora even if you can find a place with parking there

A beautiful, clean, well run establishment ruined by dogs barking virtually all night. Do not intend to return.

“Great Country Setting”

Clean, comfortable and well managed casa. Everything met our expectation.
Rooms Aldabra or Alfaraz at Casa do Governador have king size beds and the rooms are very spacious. There are two other rooms that have king size beds in another section of the building which may also be desirable. If you want a peaceful place to sit and have a relaxing glass of wine or other beverage head down to the pool area.
Try the Maria Luisa Restaurante if you get a chance.......by far one of the best meal we had in our 31/2 week trip to Spain & Portugal....see restaurant reviews for more deals.
