  • Pousada of Tavira – Hotel Convento da Graca

    A former 16th century Convent, the Pousada of Tavira hotel offers superb accommodation in this unspoilt area of the Algarve

    Description

    This exceptionally beautiful Hotel Tavira is housed in the former Convent of the Cloistered Augustinian Nuns founded by King D. Sebastiao in the 16th century. It has been superbly restored and features a Renaissance cloister and Baroque staircase. During the restoration several archaeological traces of Islamic origin were discovered which are now partially visible from the bar.

    This Hotel Convento Da Graca is a short walk from the town centre standing on the site of what was once most likely the Jewish quarter of Tavira. Once guests have explored the town, they can relax by the Pousada’s beautiful swimming pool or, enjoy a drink in the elegant courtyard.

    The Pousada Tavira has 36 rooms, including 3 superior rooms, 5 suites and 1 special suite. All rooms have en-suite bathroom, heating/air conditioning, telephone, Cable TV, hairdryer, safe and internet access.

    The convent’s church has been converted into a multi-purpose function room perfect for weddings, meetings or conferences.

    Tavira is a very typical Algarvean town in terms of its history and it is considered to be one of the few ‘unspoilt’ locations as it has not been adversely affected by the more recent influx of tourists. Tavira has been influenced by many civilizations; it was once a Phoenician village, it was habited by the Romans and it was an important city during the Muslim occupation.

    3 testimonials for Pousada of Tavira – Hotel Convento da Graca

    1. Stayed 2 nights, January 2014 on the ‘over 55 deal’. Suite 9. Excellent welcome and good, roomy suite with large balcony (sadly never in the sun). Excellent bed, pillows and bathroom with separate shower. Very good heating/cooling system. All staff very nice. Beautiful old building with wide open spaces and wonderful inner courtyard. Good large car park and ideally sited just 2/3 mins walk to the main streets of Tavira. Dinner in the restaurant both nights and quality of food excellent – also at breakfast. Would not hesitate staying again. Ideal base for touring the eastern Algarve.

    2. My wife and myself enjoyed our stay in march 2014 in Convento da Graca very much and were very delighted about its location in the historic site of Tavira. We enjoyed the relaxing spring atmosphere and the sunny weather. The view from our room was limited , a better view might have increased our satisfaction to some extent. The early morning sun under the arcades of the courtyard has been very memorable. The illumination of the dining restaurant could be better by making it more in agreement with the convent characteristics of the building.The public places matched the convent interior much better and were really pleasant. For prospective guest looking for a stylish and quiet surrounding this pousada can be very much recommended

    3. we spent one night here in april, and it is a beautiful property in a great location. Our reception was very cordial despite the simultaneous departure of a large wedding party from the previous day. The pool area was busy, and there were guests of all ages there. The room we occupied was spacious and very comfortable, and the public areas were very well appointed. We did not eat there, so I cannot comment on the food, but overall it was a hotel I would strongly recommend to anyone visiting the area.
