We had wondered about booking a place 40 minutes from the Lisbon airport. We needn't have worried. The hotel is located in a valley near a small village. It feels completely isolated, a zillion miles from a major European city. This is a mom and pop type operation. It is built on the foundation of a several centuries old convent. The hotel itself was purpose built and is much newer. It feels much older though. It is built into the side of a valley so there are multiple levels. It is filled with antique furniture and artifacts and looks and feels like it was several hundred years old.
It is clean and well managed. Our room was not particularly big (but not small either) and had a view. A tasty breakfast is included. It does not have a restaurant, but you can order a lunch bag for five euros. If there is a cook on duty you can also have a fixed menu delicious three course supper there including a bottle of wine at a modest price. We were there three nights and ate there all three evenings. It has a small honour bar. There is no tv. There is a swimming pool and lounges. There are a couple of downsides. It would be absolutely useless for persons with ability issues. And there is no way out except to climb out of the valley, a good ten to 15 minute climb if you don't have a car. There are hiking trails once you get out of the valley. You can get taxi service to get to/from the Lisbon Airport. We'd stay there again without hesitation.
