The first night I spent in Alentejo, I stayed in this country cottage located in the center of the town of Crato. It was the first of the typical villages of the area that I came to, so the first thing that struck me was the color of the walls, which were all painted in white and yellow. The village itself is not anything special, but it is fine for a leisurely stroll. The house, meanwhile, is great. It is a restored ancient palace, and therefore the rooms are quite spacious. The owner is fantastic, and the place is very cozy. Furthermore, they serve great homemade food. Opposite, there is a very interesting ship, almost a museum, which houses parts of old carriages.
The Pousada do Crato (Crato) is a castle, a convent, and a palace that was built at different times in Crato. The mystique of this ancient medieval monastery of the Order of Malta is a 4-star hotel. It boasts parking, elevators, a business center, heating, currency exchange, a swimming pool, air conditioning, children's pool, restaurant, TV Lounge, Lounges, Wi-Fi and a safe.
It has a beautiful large garden and sunbathing area around a magnificent pool. Just 2 km from the center of Crato, Hotel Pousada Flor da Rosa has period architecture and exquisitely decorated interiors. The rooms are cozy and spacious and offer free Wi-Fi and balconies with views. Choose a more romantic room with a four poster bed. For breakfast, the hotel has an excellent restaurant with a huge terrace to enjoy the fresh air while enjoying their delicious dishes. You can barbecue in the garden or sit and read in the living room with fireplace. If traveling by car don't worry about parking as the hotel offers free places. If you want to know the capital, Lisbon is only two hours by car.
