This impressive pousada is housed within a 16th century, former royal convent and set in lush, landscaped gardens close to the historic village of Vila Viçosa. Built on the orders of Dom Jaime, the forth Duke of Bragança, the building served as a pantheon for the ladies of the house and a home for his unwed daughters.

The elegant rooms are decorated in warm colours and adorned with period furniture. There is an outdoor swimming pool with terrace and guests can enjoy authentic local cuisine and international wines at the pousada’s restaurant. The historic towns of Estremoz (21.5km), Évora (65km) and Arraiolos (64.6km) are within easy driving distance, as is the Alqueva Lake (84.6km).
