Very serene escape on a twisting mountain

Pros: Pure simplicity and very original experience. Eating breakfast on the patio was truly magical.
Cons: Overall slightly expensive (both room and restaurant) compared to other hotels and resorts we've stayed in around Portugal.
Location: The location was very secluded which provided a beautiful but also challenging drive.
If you're looking for a serene weekend away, this is definitely the spot to go. The architect did a fantastic job capturing the monastic quality as the pousada as quite simple but beautiful. The rooms are efficient and modern but small. If you're looking for a resort with several options, this may not be the best spot for the exact same reason mentioned above. If you're looking to read and have some quiet time in a beautiful environment, this place is not to be missed. The location is on the top of a beautiful mountain and the twisting drive is also part of the experience. Make sure you have a car that handles well! The food in restaurant was slightly expensive but of very high quality. The atmosphere in the restaurant makes up for the slightly high prices.. The wait staff was good but not overly friend- It's worth nothing that this may have been due to the fact that we spoke very little Portuguese. We had breakfast here each day as well which was quite lovely. As an aside, we walked to the nearby restaurant which was above average and very affordable.

Der Service und die Zimmer waren absolut einwandfrei, leider konnte man dies nicht über das Abendessen sagen das war nämlich recht enttaeuschend, vielleicht besser ein nahegelegenes Restaurant aufzusuchen
