Pros: It was right in the heart of a beautiful old town, with spectacular views as Idanha da Nova is on top of a large hill. The service was great, and breakfast tasty. :D
Cons: Unfortunately, they didn't have heat for the first part of the night, and it was REALLY cold! But that's okay, this was apparently just a fluke, but we just happened to get caught in the middle of it.
