The hotel is located in a very small town. The town is really cool if you really want to fell deep inside the country. The room is in fact a little house composed out of a bathroom, a living room, kitchen and 2 sleeping rooms. If you like to ahve holidays in typical country side, this is your place. It's possible to get bikes from the tenant and some activities are organised (pottery and the like). Nevertheless keep in mind that it's not the purpose of this establishement and that it's jsut side activities. .. not really... it's just unique :-)
Highly recommended. This converted convent is lovely and the staff was extremely generous and helpful. They spoke English and the hotel is a great base to see Evora (15 minutes away by car) as well as the many prehistoric sites in the area west of Evora. The deconsecrated chapel is completely lined with azulejos and the modern art hanging throughout the hotel makes a nice contrast. No.
We were very impressed with the history of the building and the tranquility of the location. The interior had been very sympathetically moderised to a very good standard without compromising the authenticity of the buildings.
Our second visit (the first in 1999) We returned for the ambiance, the tranquil, scenic setting, the successful conversion of an historic, attractive building into a stunning, modern guest hotel. The breakfasts were bountiful and excellent, as before.. the weather was perfect The dining food service was disastrous, inattentive, over-priced. During lunch on the day of our arrival we were the only four guests. We waited 90 minutes for our food. Two entrees (pasta) were inedible (probably forgotten in the kitchen).We were given credit on our bill. a third entree: four spears of (burned)asparagus and three filled mushrooms was over-priced at Euro 13.50 Likewise a couvert charge of Euro 4.90 each was excessive.We canceled previously made dinner reservations, and went to the village.
The hotel itself and the rooms were beautiful and quite comfortable. Lovely views. Delicious buffet breakfast. The prices at the bar were very high (7.50 euros for a non-alcoholic juice mix).
Good location, very nice combination of old and modern, friendly staff, large common spaces Some details can be improved (for instance, cleanliness of the window of the room, damaged room lamp that was not substituted after request)
Excellent staff, good swimming pool, great grounds to walk arround, fantastic breakfast. Dinner at night too expensive for the quality with cold plates and cold vegatables, the carpet in our room had curled up and we tripped over it a couple of times
the staff The room was overpriced and overrated on Bookings.com and gave us unrealistic expectations.
Wonderful staff/owners. highly recommend!!!
Wonderful staff and delightful room...we were upgraded to a suite ; consider this option as it was well worth it for the cost of about 25 euros more) Lovely on site restaurant, very reasonable. Best place we stayed in in Portugal! Nothing...the town is very small so not much to do.
Very hard to find
The owner was extremely kind and helpful, going out of his way to assist us with some problems we experienced prior to our arrival. The facility was beautiful and the rooms excellent.
Beautifully converted old Portuguese house family run a charming retreat in beautiful countryside thoroughly recommended
A small, privately owned, very friendly hotel in a little country town. Facilities at the hotel were understandably limited, especially as it was out of season, but were still perfectly adequate. A special request was attended to efficiently and with great charm. The bedroom was a good size and comfortable. No drawer space for clothes was a minor problem.
Friendly family atmosphere where the staff went the extra mile to make the stay most enjoyable. The rooms were excellent with fantastic views of the countryside.
the nature arround the village and the location itself, the decoration of the hotel is stunning and done with style, compliments to the owners. In Mora is one of the top hundred lis restaurants named afonso located the combination of the hotel and the fine dining is a bonus. for international traveller it misses a pool -garden area at the front of the hotel, they have plans to build this and it will help that people staying longer. Even so the lounges could be more inviting furnitured for relax sitting in a antique setting. It has all style and elements to be a top hotel albergia for the future....do not miss this lovely hotel.
beautiful rooms, good restaurant
Casa do Lavre is a haven of peace in a small village in Alentejo. A place where you hear more birds than cars and with amazing views of the surrounding countryside. The staff made us feel very welcome and recommended some great places to eat. If you feel like taking a good book to a great terrace or poolside and can live without a TV set in your room, you'll probably enjoy your stay at Casa do Lavre. We certainly did! It wasn't a problem for us but access to the top floor suite would probably be quite difficult for anyone disabled as the narrow stairway is also quite steep.
The chance for a pleasant weekend break
