Fodor's Expert Review Pousada Convento de Arraiolos

Nossa Sra. da Assunção, Arraiolos, Évora, 7044-909, Portugal

If you need to sleep on your decision about which carpet to buy, consider an overnight stay in this picturesque pousada housed in a 16th-century convent that has been beautifully restored and tastefully updated with modern comforts. Although most of Portugal's other pousadas retain their old style throughout, the Arraiolos hotel seamlessly blends old and new, with stark modern decor like Japanese platform beds next to 400-year-old fireplaces. The staff is particularly attentive here, and on request can arrange activities like horseback riding.
