We stayed 3 nights here in the Marvao / Castelo de Vide precinct. For the self-drive traveller, you could not do better. Especially when I had mistakenly booked for one month earlier & all was forgiven.
We had the spacious, luxurious, very private Sunrise Suite. The entire property is gob-smackingly beautiful with views to Marvao Fort, fabulous original sculpture by the world-renowned owner everywhere, spacious bed & spacious bathroom, excellent breakfast option, farm meals available down the road (we did not do), local walks, local tourism information provided.
Great location to visit Marvao (I advise lunch Restauante Sever @ Portagem) & Castelo de Vide (I advise lunch O Doces & Companhia) then bring home a picnic for dinner @ Quinta do Barrieiro & eat your breakfast leftovers.
