We stayed in the 'conventa da provenca for 7 nights. Our suite "almeira"(entrance room, bathroom and bedroom) was spartan but had all the luxery we needed. Rooms were clean and matrasses very ok! The convent is a museum all over, in every corner there is a point of interest. Looking out of the windows you enjoy the beauty of the...

What can I say, this hotel has everything you need for a relaxing stay in the beautiful region of Alantejo. It has a wonderful charm, full of antiquities but spacious and comfortable. We stayed for 11 days so we're upgraded to a suite with wonderful views. One of the best things about this place is the staff, they are all...

Fantastic place: a perfectly restored monastery furnished with great taste and attention to middle age history. Very spacious room and fantastic surroundings. The only negative thing: common areas were a bit cold but this is common to all places in Portugal it seems. A particular mention to the girl (I forgot the name...) at reception. A very helpful, nice and...

We stayed two days in the room called Alegrete, a fairly basic - almost spartan - room. But the place has really nice surroundings and common areas where you can relax, read, listen to music, eat etc. The pool has a stunning view, breakfast is delicious and you can have good light meals and snacks all day. The service is...

This hotel is a converted Monastery and the décor is done in a sympathetic way. Rooms and public areas are all in keeping with the theme and the staff are very helpful. Parking is free and unlimited. The hotel is a little remote from the town but that's why we booked it. We would stay again for sure. Great find.

Sleep and rest surrounded with a piece of Portuguese history. A XII century monastery converted to a quiet hotel with a great view and swimming pool. Located in a very quite place in the north of the region of Alentejo you have a lot to see and places to eat.

Very enjoyable stay at the Convento. Great rooms and lovely rural location but only 5mins from Portalegra.WiFi worked fine, uncrowded around the pool. Lusia on reception was extremely helpful with suggestions of where to visit and where to eat. Would definitely stay again when in the area.

Unfortunately we only got to spend one night in this peace of heaven! The view was breathtaking and the rooms were spacious and relaxing. The swimming pool and the view were the convento's best features. Unfortunately there was only wifi in the living room but that was OK. The breakfast was very well served and the people were really nice....

We spent two nights here in February, 2013, and thought it was magical. The rooms are spacious and very quiet, very clean and comfortable.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Convento da Provença – Rural Hotel, located at Monte Paleiros, Portalegre, Alentejo in the Natural Park of S. Mamede Mountain and center of the Tourist Triangle of North Alentejo (Castelo de Vide, Portalegre, Marvão), is part of a rural environment where tranquillity and silence offer true moments of rest and relaxation. A real monument, the Convento da Provença (with origins in the remote Middle Ages) sits at the foot of the Serra de Frei Álvaro, a location that ensures magnificent views over the plains and the hills where cork oaks and olive trees domain, in a calm and welcoming atmosphere that combines history, nature and religion with all the comforts and amenities essential for an unforgettable stay. The legacy of centuries of history are reflected in the tasteful decoration based on past history and the monastic life, the preservation of old walls and in the maintenance of most of its original features, which highlight its seven rooms and two suites whose names are a homage to the castles of the District of Portalegre. ... more   less
