We just returned from a 2-1/2 week trip to France, Spain and Portugal. For 20 years, we have depended on American Rick Steves for his recommendations on hotels in our price range. We found the Solar on our own on Trip Advisor and have never stayed in a finer hotel with a gracious and kind staff and wonderful meals. (Their buffet breakfast included in the room rate was the best, most extensive, and top-quality we've ever had on our ten trips to Europe.)
We knew we had found the right hotel in the tiny town of Vila VIcosa (its about 30 miles from Evora) when we were upgraded to a beautiful suite upon our arrival. English is spoken well in the hotel, and the staff (David and Tania) were able to help us a great deal with information about the town, the hotel and the area. As a result, we have fallen in love with the country of Portugal, the Alentejo region and the small town of Vila Vicosa which contains a lovely Ducal palace a block from the hotel. We are now figuring out how we can stay there for a month at a time when we retire in six years.
