We spent two nights at the Pousada Convento Arraiolos which served as the guest hotel for a local wedding. The Pousada was wonderful--it is a fully-restored convent complete with beautiful chapel located in the countryside outside Arriaolos. The village--famous for its rugs and tapestries--is just a short walk away. As we were walking there, a farmer stopped us to show...

Interesting location that appeared to be off the beaten track. Original building with modern additions that did not detract from its character. Small town close by had a number of restaurants that were popular with the locals. Very relaxing stay with warm but not overly hot weather until last day. Spring or autumn would appear to be time of year...

As repeater customers we (2 of us) were delighted to see many improvements in the Pousada C Arraiolos since our last visit in 2015. The menu had changed and the quality of dinners we had was excellent, a new Michelin recommendation is well deserved. The staff was kind and helpful as ever, so our 4-day stay was a most pleasant...

The Pousada is in an idyllic valley. Your approach takes you down a cobbled road trough fields with sheep, bells around their neck dinging. Lovely views all around and to the town and fort of Arraiolos. The view of the square church tower with 8 huge bells, huge carved church portal promises to make the stay memorable.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pousada de Arraiolos, Nossa Senhora da Assuncao, is situated in a sixteenth century convent presenting itself as an example in the art of recovery of historical buildings which combine traditional features with the concepts of modern architecture. The union between tradition and modernisms is celebrated in this Pousada with innovated luxury. During the middle ages the convent served the local evangelistic population. With the restoration into Pousada, the austerity gave way to joy, the simplicity of comfort and to penance to life's pleasures. Staying at this Pousada is a fantastic pretext for getting to know the town of Arraiolos, whose cultural heritage is world renowned, through its carpets which are a true work of art of tapestry. Guests of the Arraiolos hotel park for free on location. The centre of Arraiolos is 1.2 Km from Pousada de Arraiolos, Nossa Senhora da Assuncao, and 25 km from Evora. ... more   less
