Located inside the castle walls and with panoramic views of Estremoz and the Alentejo plains, this charming and comfortable apartment occupies a traditional 16th century house recently renovated.
Less than five minutes walk away, you can find the 13th century castle with its marble tower, the municipal museum, art galleries, the town centre with its weekly market and some of the best restaurants in the region.
Its centrality makes it the perfect choice to explore this beautiful region.

The space

This comfortable apartment occupies the first floor of a 16th century house renovated in 2012. We tried to preserve as much as possible the character of the original house: traditional construction techniques were used, old brick arches that were covered were revealed and stones with hundred of years of use preserved.
It has 1 bedroom with a queen bed, living room with a sofa bed, fireplace and kitchenette and a small but functional bathroom with shower. The kitchenette is equipped with stove, fridge, freezer, kettle, expresso machine, toaster and microwave.
You have access to a private patio in the castle wall with stunning views of Estremoz and the surrounding plains. It has a table so that you may enjoy your meals outside, a barbecue so that you may grill the region’s quality local produce and a hammock for two in case you need a relaxing nap after that.
The house can be rented together with Estremoz Castle House for an extra capacity of 4-6 people.

Rodrigo is a very good host who responded quickly to our queries both prior to and during our stay. The 400 year old but recently converted to apartments dwelling sits within and on top of the castle walls. The Airbnb photos are accurate and the apartment provides excellent cooling against the summer heat. A short downhill walk to the town offers excellent dining choices; Alecrin and Mercearia Gadanha in particular, are highly recommended. The Pousada three minutes’ walk uphill to the top of the castle is well worth a visit, and the free public access to the tower offers a commanding view of the surrounding countryside. The apartment provided a unique castle town experience, not to be missed. The house is equipped for self-catering and the bed – together with the pillows - is very comfortable. The outdoor patio offers excellent town views and we enjoyed sitting on the city wall eating pomegranates which grow in the landlord’s courtyard. A very pleasant location for outdoor drinks and meals. Thank you, Rodrigo for making our stay in Estremoz so enjoyable.

This place was more than what we expected ! It is really inside the walls of a castle with a great history, the place is pittoresk, we were able to dine in an old jail The view from our terrace was splendid, and the weather made us eat and drink outside on it, and relax This place is not to miss by anyone !

Wonderful place to stay with amazing views! Rodrigo is a wonderful host and Estermoz is a beautiful little town. The suite comes with all of the charm you would expect staying in a castle that is centuries old but it has been updated to add modern comforts. This is a great place to stay for the experience of being in a medieval town. Rodrigo was extremely helpful to us all through planning our stay and getting to the suite. I would definitely recommend a stay at Rodrigo's place!

Rodrigo's apartment is beautifully done, and has a fabulous terrace with views over Estremoz. We didn't meet but he was very good at communicating. Check out his recommendations- there's quite a lot to do, chicken pies from the bakery he suggests are especially delicious! Also cafe Alentejo is nice for a beer.

This was a wonderful experience, you don't get to stay in a medieval castle very often! The apartment was much bigger then I expected with a kitchen, terrace, lounge area and bedroom. The space is thoughtfully decocated decorated and has everything you need. The bed is comfy and the shower had plenty if hot water. Rodrigo was a great host and gave us a heap of information about the area. We would definitely stay here again.

Totally romantic and thoughtfully presented apartment with an outstanding view across the town and surrounding areas. This sort of find is what makes Air bnb a very good option. We were particularly appreciative of the tray of condiments provided in the kitchen (olive oil, salt, pepper, herbs etc). Try to include a Saturday in your itinerary to visit the local market in the town square (a short 2 minute stroll down hill) as it is an absolute treasure trove of collectables/antiques at extraordinarily reasonable prices, along with cheese, fruit, vegetables, flowers, plants, produce & poultry (but no bread??!) that shouldn't be missed.

A small, but perfectly formed apartment. Great for a romantic getaway, with a lovely secluded terrace offering great views of the town. Rodrigo was a welcoming host, with helpful advice on what to see and do in the area, as well as places to eat.
