Beautiful Pousada in Beautiful Location. This Pousada stands beside the Castle and Church with magnificent views of the country side. The Pousada is at the top of the hill but a short walk to restaurants and bars so not isolated. The interior is beautiful and the bedrooms are very comfortable. The breakfast is excellent with plenty of choice and lovely...

We stayed here for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the chance to stay in such a historic building with wonderful views that can be enjoyed from a number of areas.

My husband and I flew from Morocco into Lisbon, it was dark when we got there so I wanted a place to stay that first night not far from the airport. We chose the Pousada and I am so glad we did. As we were driving south on the highway I could see the castle on the hill bathed in...

We are a family of 5 celebrating new years eve, that is not that easy to get confortable in most hotels without booking two separate rooms (which doesn't work for us). We were booked the biggest room ever (actualy they were 3 contiguous rooms). The decoration, the surroundings, the ambiance and the service is just the best there is.

We stayed here for a friends wedding and the setting was breathtaking. Gorgeous, spacious rooms in a lovely historic setting overlooking Pamela. Clearly, you need a car if you are staying here which we didn't have, so we spent a small fortune on cabs to get to Setubal. But that was the only small downside. Would like to extend my...
