The property is beautiful in a lovely quiet setting. Great gardens around the pool, and nice outdoor eating areas with views. The pool was large, well kept and benefitted from several covered relaxing areas nearby. The hosts were friendly, caring and low key, it has a great balance of informality but with high standards. Fabulous food, for breakfast lunch or dinner if you wanted it. Elvas is only ten minutes away with a variety of places to eat if you can pull yourself away from Bia’s cooking! A daily special for dinner adds another layer to what is a nice menu anyway we had the duck breast with a orange and honey sauce…..delicious. Our room was large, well equipped, and a very spacious bathroom. The indoor lounge and dining room were delightful too. We will be back.

Staying 2 nights, by arrival lady/owner was grumpy, we were “very difficult” clients asking for coathangers (finally arrived), tissues (not avalable) and much more important toilet kept running. Hosts tried to fix it but could not. After 24 hours could not use in-room toilet anymore. The whole place, rooms and pool included was infested with flies, no fly repetent available, had to purchase it privately Breakfast products were from budget chain (Aldi??) Staff was doing their outmost, very friendly and helpfull but could solve problems

Great rural place with olive trees, vineyards, beautiful view of the countryside and the suite was outstanding. Host also has grounds you can walk and explore. We stayed for 3 days and really loved it. Male owner was super nice, had a small chat before checking out. Also the breakfast staff was outstanding, they treated us including our infant son like family

Great location for breaking the journey to Bilbao ferry. Open all year. Genuine and interesting hosts with great local knowledge. The Portuguese cook is an absolute Rock Star.serving up brilliant locally sourced produce to die for - she’s also delightfully social. Wine list is excellent and sensibly priced. We will return in January.

We stayed here for 3 nights last august, and it was a really more than wonderful experience. The location is close to Elvas, but tranquility is all around with the immaculate gardens and grounds all around. Gardens and pool are extremely well kept, and a lush for all scents. Everywhere beautiful tropical trees,flowers ,and awesome lavender plants. The whole place is a real oasis in the Alentejo. Breakfast was perfect, served on the amazing terras, so was lunch and diner. Everything fresh and tasty, compliments for the cook Bia, we loved her kitchen very much. The owners Joachim and Maria are real fine discreet and friendly hosts. We felt here really at home, and we did not like to leave after 3 nights. The only minus was that it was august high season holidays, so sometimes the noise of spoiled constantly screaming children disturbed the pastoral peace and beauty of the place. But far away from the poolside we find even more beautiful places to relax. Overal we can recommend the place very much. And we will visit Monte de Provenca again. Comparing price and quality , this is a 10 +++++ Muito obrigado e Adeus. Ignatius and Stefan from Belgium

A lovely building, an old convent converted to a hotel. The building is very impressive, large rooms, an excellent veranda for breakfast or dinner all very well furnished, very nice grounds, a large sparklingly clean swimming pool. Our room was quite large with a very high impressive wooden ceiling and well furnished. And perhaps therein lays an issue. It is very well finished, and in trying to keep it that way the owners are not trusting their guests. Hence maybe no tea or coffee facilities to stop refreshments in the room. Many rules around the swimming pool. All perhaps necessary, but from our greeting to the notices it was often reinforcement of rules rather than greetings. If no tea or coffee, perhaps a cold welcome drink on arrival? No. If no glasses by the pool how would we enjoy an afternoon drink? Get dressed and move to the veranda? And because it was so quiet, maybe just two other rooms occupied when we there there, was an evening meal available? I don’t know, it was never mentioned, just as well we were planning on the 8 kilometre drive to eat in town in the evenings anyway. Actually, on check out, we were asked why we did not eat there on our third night. It happened that it was the weekend with more guests and they were opening the restaurant. But no one thought to tell their guests. Then on check out I was asked to pay. I explained that it was paid in advance, I do 90% of my hotels that way and I know this was the case. No, the owner insisted it had not been paid. Continuing she was right she proceeded to keep us waiting while she fuddled her way through her system, only to confirm that it was in fact paid. And with no apology or offer of help with our luggage we were on our way. In summary, an excellent quality building which could be an excellent hotel but isn’t, some learning yet to be done.

We stayed here for three nights in June 2021. First, the good stuff. The property is beautiful, rural, and has a very nice pool. The rooms are clean and spacious. The breakfast is very good and the serving staff for breakfast are very polite and helpful. Now the ‘bad’ - basically we had three issues. It appears the owners also act as the check-in/out clerk, bartenders, and waiters. The husband is very nice and helpful. The wife is rather cold and was unfortunately the one who we did our initial check-in with. We felt somewhat uncomfortable; it was as if she was doing us a big favor to take the time to check us in. We found this very odd given this is rated as a 4-star. Surely, you can hire dedicated front-desk staff. Throughout our stay, It was a rather convoluted process to get one of them, just for us to order some drinks to enjoy the beautiful view on the deck. I would either need to push a button on the front desk to call one of them from upstairs, or go into the kitchen area to ask for what we wanted, only to have the kitchen staff phone the owners, who would then come down and deal with us. All that to say, we did not order a second round of drinks. Second, there is no air conditioning. This was a big surprise and I may not have booked it if I had known. Luckily, we had rather mild temperatures and so with the windows open, there was enough air circulation to keep the bedroom cool enough. But I am not sure the peak summer months would be bearable here without A/C. Third, the owners have two large dogs; one of which barks throughout the night at anything that moves outside. After two nights of being woken up several times, we complained. The owner was sympathetic, but noted there was not much he could do to keep the dog from barking (really?). The dog did not bark on our third night, so obviously our complaints changed something regarding the dog. So why stay at a quiet, rural 4-star hotel, if the owners have a dog that barks through the night? I could stay in a 2-star in town and be woken up all night by the traffic for a lot less money. It was especially annoying as we needed to have the windows open to compensate for the lack of A/C. Ultimately, this is a very nice property. You just need to be prepared for a bit of “Fawlty Towers”.

The property is very nicely located, and our suite was excellent. A strong biodiversity and sustainability focus was clearly seen wherever we went at the property. The hosts, Maria e Joachim Schmid, were outstanding during our stay. Their supporting staff were also super friendly and very helpful, including their cook that provided us with some memorable meals. They also had charging points for electric vehicles available at the property, which really came in handy. All in all, a wonderful experience we will not forget!

Frankly our stay was as near perfect as a trip can be. Our high expectations were exceeded. From first contact to check out...top marks for professionalism, kindness and hospitality. The hotel, pool and grounds are absolutely beautiful and very spacious. Hosts and staff truly go that extra mile...24/7. Thank you. Housekeeping, restaurant, maintenance....simply perfect. Exceptional standards. Exceptional value. If you do manage to tear yourself away from this lovely place there´s so much to see and do that you could easily spend a couple of weeks enjoying a quiet holiday. The suites are just what we were looking for....the well equipped kitchen allows a good mix of self-catering or restaurant dining and we enjoy the extra space. Good parking (covered). Good heating. I´m sure we´ll be back very soon.
