“Exceptional stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

This is not so much a conventional hotel as an 'agrodolce' (to borrow an Italian word) - and all the better for it! The four of us shared a two-bedroom apartment for two nights in May 2014. It was private, quiet, comfortable, very, very clean, beautifully furnished (and when I say 'beautiful', I mean it), with excellent berakfast. The place is a short, pleasant drive from Tomar and other attractions in the area and the hosts are exceptionally pleasant and helpful. There are two unique things about it, however:
- Open fire. May was chilly this year, so it fire was blazing every night: all we had to do was to ask. What can be better at night, given a galss or three of some old madeira?
- Bar. There is a tiny bar, which seemed to be fascinatingly well-stocked. For wahtever reason, I could not partake - ah, well, next time for sure!
Very highly recommended!

We were touring about Portugal, playing host to visiting relatives from the States who wanted to see as much as possible. Being on the road instead of returning to our home each night meant some basic motel stays, but we hit the jackpot with Casa da Avo Geneveva. It was January, raining, and we were late to arrive. No problem with the gracious hosts, Maria Manuela Antunes Duarte Pereira Guerra Gomes da Costa and José Gomes da Costa. We called with trouble with directions:no problem, they clarified. We arrived at almost 9 p.m., needing dinner. No problem, they recommended a place just a few minutes' drive away. The breakfast buffet the following morning was probably the best we've had anywhere in our European travels. Lovely rooms; tennis court, pool, and bar round out their offerings.

What a fantastic find!
I stayed here for 3 nights in August, with my husband and two children (aged 6 and 9).
We had the T2, which comprises two bedrooms, two bathrooms a large living room and dining area and a small kitchen.
The place was clean although a bit hot (both rooms had AC, so that wasn't a problem).
The name of the place means "The House of Grandma Genoveva", and it definitely lives up to its name. The house is decorated with old furniture and some nice bric-a-brac, which captured that "grandma's house feeling" and you could just imagine Grandma Genoveva popping in any minute now to see if you needed something!
The breakfast was wonderful and the couple who run the house were always helpful and at hand if we needed something.
The swimming pool was great although the fly-catchers (natural cone-like bags that attract flies) were full and smelt a bit. The tennis court was a bit worn but more than adequate for our needs.
The garden is extensive and very well kept.
What makes this place is the quiet location, the great attentive service, the old country feel and the closeness to Tomar. It is also good value for money.
We had a great time and would recommended it to anyone.

  • Liked — The apartment, the breakfast and the pool
  • Disliked — The fly-catchers leaving a smell in the pool area
