This was not our first stay in a Portuguese 'Pousada', which is the name given to a hotel in a historic or generally interesting building - one of a small national chain. We tried two others in 2009 in the eastern Algarve. We seniors qualify for a Golden Age passport, which packages car hire plus discounts on the room rate and restaurant bills. Highly recommended! This pousada is an old castle with fantastic views over rice fields and an old town, where the storks took off from their perches each morning and came home at night. There's a good hotel open-air pool, the buffet breakfasts are excellent, the staff are really good. The old building is not perfectly soundproofed - we got ourselves moved after a noisy night when the kitchens were preparing for a big event - and it is not exactly furnished like a trendy boutique hotel. But it has a very special feel to it.
