Fodor's Expert Review Monte dos Pensamentos

Estrada Estacao do Ameixial, Estremoz, Évora, 7100, Portugal

A mile from the historic quarter, this hotel is housed in an 18th-century manor house with sprawling gardens, a heated outdoor swimming pool, and plenty of period charm. Bicycles are free for guests who want to cycle up the road to the walled old city. The main building has collonaded Arabic-style arches out front, huge hearths and tiled floors inside, and is chock-full of local antiques. You can rent a room or a suite in the main building, or an entire cottage out back. It has one of the biggest, best breakfast spreads in town, with homemade bread and jam.
