It is 7km from Evora city. Very quiet place. You need a car to get to Evora...or a taxi! It is not a building full of rooms but a group of unfamiliar houses/villas with a room, a bathroom, a living room and a small patio. Some have a small kitchen. Be sure to choose the type of bathroom you prefer as they have some with bathtubs and some with only cabin shower. You can also choose 2 double bed or an almost king size bed. The heating system in the villas is great. Very simple decoration but nice, comfortable and cozy. The restaurant CARDO is great and breakfast is very good with all kinds of international food but also full of jams and cheese from the region. The staff is amazing. They do everything possible for you to have a perfect stay. I just wish that next time they have 2 people giving massage in the SPA, because we wanted a double massage and we couldn't have it... A great place to relax and enjoy the amazing Alentejo region!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The 'Ecorkhotel' in Portugal is Inspired by Cork and Medieval Villages Published: Dec 20, 2013 • References: dezeen Taking inspiration from the structure of medieval villages in Alentejo in the South-Central region of Portugal, "where it was common to find a main complex or castle, and several white buildings around it," according to the project's site, the 'Ecorkhotel' was designed by Portuguese architect Jose Carlos Cruz. The imposing structure contains a restaurant, a recreational complex fitted with up to 56 hotel suites in the form of bungalows. The hotel is located in Portugal's Alentejo region and is completely covered in cork. On the reason why Cruz decided to use cork as the main component in the construction of the hotel, he says, "[o]ne of our intentions was to promote cork as a cladding material, it's a good thermal insulator and is also recyclable." The two story recreational complex incorporates conference rooms, an indoor swimming pool, a gym and spa facilities with views of the Alentejo landscape. ... more less
