Most of the comments have already been covered by others BUT what a wonderful place it is! The property is fabulous but I think the standout is the staff - you'd have to go some to find more genuine, attentive and friendly people. And, yes, the food was very, very good - in addition to the breakfast which was amazing,...

Peter and Nina own and run what has to be the "best l'll Inn" in the country. They moved to Evora from Los Angeles. The building was originally a 16th C olive oil mill and the property has maintained the historic character. While most of the walls are crisply white painted, you look around and see a wall where, as...

We did not have the pleasure of staying here, but had an amazing experience with the owner. A carload of 6 of us were looking for a winery and had been lost for 45 minutes. After making a wrong turn on a dirt road we encountered the owner of the hotel who offered to help us. He did not give...

From the first moment we arrived at this Hotel, we knew that we had won the accomodation lottery. I don't know how Peter can maintain the level of intensity of service and commitment. Kudos to him and his staff. We're ready to come back. Definitely the best stay of our 3 week trip to Portugal, Pousadas maybe you should learn...

This was the nicest place we stayed while in Portugal. Service? it was exceptional. Always with a smile, a kind word and asking what more they could do. Wonderful restaurant recommendations, good touring suggestions, and a nice private patio to enjoy breakfast or a glass of wine at the end of the day. Oh, did i mention the breakfast? It...

I unfortunately spent only one night at Albergaria do Calvario but it was enough for us to promise that we will be back and stay for a week while we explore the wonders the Alentejo region has to offer. The hotel is wonderful and since I am from Brasil it has a feeling that you are staying at a farmhouse...
