This is a very comfortable Pousada, within easy walking distance of all of the local points of interest. Although it is a historic building it has been cleverly converted to provide modern amenities. We enjoyed our short stay very much.

Great, beautiful setting, very friendly and effective staff, lots of rooms to explore (great fireplace and bar rooms), big guest rooms and lots of choice at breakfast.
Soundproofing could be improved as could hear (noisy) people in room Upstairs.

This was the second Pousada that we stayed at during our trip. Anther one was in guimarães, which was more impressive. This one was also very good. It's a well preserver historical hotel with wonderful atmospheric. The room was spacious and very clean. The breakfast was good and fresh with many choices. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel's location is excellent with easy parking. The historical palace and a beautiful church are just outside of the hotel. Vila Vicosa is a very pretty small town with many beautiful orange trees lined up the main streets. We loved strolling in the town especially the historical castle area.

We had a larger room this time but no balcony. It was well furnished and very comfortable. This is a very special place to stay - history, luxury, and and an incredible place to explore. My only negative is that the lighting in the bedroom area was very dim. Breakfast was very good. Parking is easy and the location in the small village is very convenient. We stayed at a couple of other pousadas on a prior vacation and this is the best we've visited.
