Pousada Convento Vila Pouca Da Beira

Description

The Pousada de Vila Pouca da Beira is housed in a beautiful building, notable for its arches and bell tower. Set in a superb location close to the Serra da Estrela, Serra do Acor, and Serra da Lousa mountains, the former convent has been carefully restored and adapted to create a stylish and comfortable hotel. There is a central courtyard with stone pillars and a natural pool in the centre. Terracotta-tiled floors, antiques from the original convent, artistic wall hangings set amongst stone fireplaces, and colourful furnishings give the Pousada de ''Vila Pouca'' great atmosphere and style, and the views from the terrace across the parkland and farmland are well worth taking time to enjoy. The air-conditioned rooms have a minibar, cable TV, and a private balcony. All rooms are decorated with warm colours and wooden furniture. Guests can enjoy authentic Portuguese specialities in Pousada Convento de Vila Pouca da Beira’s restaurant. The bar serves a selection of local and international drinks.
