Among the many apartments we have rented over the years this was one of our all-time favorites. Though being in a very old building in an old neighborhood the apartment was very well refurbished. Despite the oddity of having the living room on the top floor with the bedroom with the kitchen downstairs, the apartment had everything we needed. The location was great, in the old quarter and convenient to everything we wanted to see.
What put this rental over the top was the hospitality of owners Luís, Antónia and their son Santiago. Antónia prepared a customized list of suggestions of things to see and restaurants to visit, all of which were first-rate. They also offered us a special tour to some sites in the area which we had chosen. We piled in the car with them and our afternoon felt more like our being allowed to join them on a family outing than a sterile tour. We left Évora feeling like we'd not only experienced a fascinating town but that we'd made new friends. We can't recommend staying at this place highly enough.
Charming Centrally Located Gem
Our 3 day stay at Luis and Antonia ' s cozy, immaculately clean apartment was perfect. We had everthing we needed. Antonia and Luis are wonderful people who are helpful with tips on what to see and where to eat. One if the best restaurants they mention is practically across the street from their place. The Internet is fast and you get many English and international channels.Its also so quiet and the bed is so comfortable that's it's hard to get up in the morning and start the sightseeing.You will not be disappointed staying here. Thank you Antonia and Luis for sharing your home.
The welcome we received from Luis on our arrival was second to none, giving us many helpful tips and advice to ensure our stay was an enjoyable one.
Evora was a wonderful place to stay, as a base for our week exploring the Alentejo region. We spent many hours exploring, seeing the many sights and getting lost amongst the maze of streets.
The house has been renovated to a high standard, keeping many original features, whilst ensuring comfort for guests.
We spent days out exploring the surrounding area, particularly enjoyed Marvao, with its castle and spectacular panoramic views.
Thank you to Luis and Antonia for their kindness and hospitality.
Luis and Antonia were so welcoming! The provided us with a list of very interesting places to visit and not just the main tourist destinations. The house was great for two people. About 3-4 steps down you have a large eat in kitchen. Up stairs you have a large living room and large bedroom. They put a bed in the living room for us. I was really impressed. Both beds were super comfortable, some of the best I've experienced. I was particularly impressed that the second bed was a bed and not a cot!
Just the experience of staying in a medieval building in a medieval town was amazing! Ok, it means that the rooms have odd nooks and crannies, but Luis and Antonia used the spaces really well. I. Addition, they've opted for really good Windows and a tight fitting door, which keeps the house quiet quiet if you want to sleep in. But with so much on your doorstep, you'll want yo get an early start.
I'd advise parking outside the wall and walking in. It's about 10 minutes, but much easier than driving on the narrow cobble streets. We just drove in to pick up the bags. I would absolutely stay here again!
Beautiful Apartment in quiet location
Thank you to our fine hosts for making our stay in Evora such a lovely one. We were greeted by our hosts abd there was local bread, cheese and wine waiting for us. We were presented with a map of Evora and a personal list of attractions that we may find interesting. We wish we could have stayed longer!! Thank you again to our hosts
great apartment and hosts
Lovely, recently restored apartment in the old city, easy walking distance to museums, restaurants, etc.. The hosts went above and beyond in giving suggestions, being helpful, even acting as our guides for different attractions outside of town. We would recommend this place in a heartbeat!
Évora is a city of an outstanding beauty, embraced by its fortress walls, filled with historic memories in each street, each home, each inhabitant.
The natural beauty of this region combines with the monumental richness of this town-museum that nowadays is also a modern city.
The archaeological landscape that surrounds the city presents important monuments, such as the Almendres' Cromlech and the Anta Grande do Zambujeiro.
Many were the ancient people that have been here, but the Romans were those who transformed Évora into an imperial town.
The historic centre of Évora, as a monumental ensemble of great historic and cultural value, was classified by UNESCO, in 1986, World Heritage.
