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.
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).
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.
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.
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
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)
Hotel staff was nice. The room was clean and with a nice big bed. The breakfast could be better (please change the brand of the yogurts). I would have prefered a bathtub instead of a shower. A plus also would be free internet.
great staff, they could not do enough for us, excellent food too. our only problem was parking. the underground carpark was inaccessible. Once in we thought we would never get out!
Well mantained hotel, and a quiet location More variety at breakfast table. The bathroom in the second floor was very low in the bathtub area (the second floor rooms are attic like)
The breakfast very nice and the location was excellent value for money. The hotel was nicely decorated.
The Hotel was very nice and modern. The pillow was very bad, to small...
Easy to find The price was too high compared to surroundings and comfort
Good smart, mostly clean hotel, with friendly staff.Sadly, the bedroom, on the last night, was not cleaned properly.Stayed 3 nights, towels not changed. Breakfast quite good, but dinner most disappointing. a strange menu, and not a lot of choice.Sad really, because the staff did their best to please us
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
