Pousada Castelo Alvito

Description

Pousada Castelo de Alvito is a renovated 15th century castle in the picturesque village of Alvito. An intriguing mix of Mudejar, Manueline and Renaissance architecture with its asymmetric, bowed towers and crenellations, this Pousada is steeped in atmosphere and has a cool, quiet interior. Only the restaurant is modern, and this blends in well with its vaulted gallery and arches overlooking the cobbled courtyard. The rooms are decorated in a contemporary fashion, which still respects the traditional feel of this timeless Pousada. Peacocks strut around the ample and delightfully landscaped grounds, which include an inviting swimming pool.
