The Pousada Convento de Belmonte represents the renovation of the Nossa Senhora da Esperança Convent dating back the 13th century. The old chapel and sacristy were transformed into a lounge and a café whose architecture stands for a mixture between harmonious historical design and contemporary hotel facilities.
The Pousada hotel has kept the Monastery's heritage unchanged. It was classified as a building of public interest in 1986, including the amphitheatre architecture layout in the pine woods on the slopes of the Esperança Mountain and the breath-taking panorama over the Cova da Veira region and the Estrela's Mountain.
Pousada Convento de Belmonte rises on the slopes of the Esperança Mountain, just 1 km far from Pedro Álvarez Cabral's birthplace: Belmonte. This accommodation is an excellent starting point for the exploration of several historical monuments scattered in the region such as the castle, the burial vault of the Cabral family, the Jewish Quarter and the natural beauty and folk traditions of the natural reserve of Estrela's Mountain (Serra da Estrela in Portuguese).
of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
Unfortunately this was are only Pousada in Portugal but we enjoyed it a lot. This is a fantastic hotel for any city, but especially when it's located at such small city. The decoration is marvelous, rooms are big and clean and the service is exceptional. Very very much recommended.
"Our favorite Pousada"
We stayted at the hotel for one night and we loved it. The building is beautiful, the exact balance between conservation and conveniece, Attnention was given to every detail and it creats a total, warm and charmimg expreiemce. The view from the rooms is breathtaking. It was cold to use the swimmining pool but the walks we took were lovely. We had dinner at the Pousada and it was definitly our best dinner in Portugal.
"Excellent hotel & restaurant"
I had a very enjoyable stay - I was in the only suite which consists of 3 rooms on split levels connected by fairly short stairs, this being the only room that utilises the original granite building. The evening meal was truly excellent and I had a bottle of their cheapest alentejo red, I think about €15, which is specially bottled for the pousada and was also excellent.
"Absolutely loved it."
This was one stop on a tour of seven Pousadas and Paradors. When we booked it, I was a little worried as it doesn’t show it’s full glory on the website. However, it ended up as possibly our favourite of the whole tour. The body of the old convent is obvious and fascinating, the addition of the extra rooms is unobtrusive to the point of appearing to be of the original building. The restaurant is superb and the staff so helpful and friendly. Belmonte as a town is somewhat unspectacular, but the surrounding countryside more than makes up for that. The views from the hotel across the gigantic glacial valley to the Serra da Estrella are worth the trip alone.
"a room with a view"
the hotel and the rooms stand to the pousadas standards. the rooms are big and comfortable. our room had a balcony with views to the valley and you can sit for hours watching the landscape. we had inconvenience reaching the room as it was in a lower level with no lift .
