Wonderful country home and very quiet (except for the owls). Hostess was very kind and helpful. Breakfast was very good but the morning shower was lukewarm at best. Must have a car to get there. A break from city hotels.

This place is really special. A wonderful home that appears to form part of an estate in a lovely small village. The house has been beautifully looked after and the rooms are very special and filled with lovely antiques and artefacts. Our suite was spotless and very comfortable. Maria, our host explained where there was a good restaurant nearby so... More

This sweet guest house, on what appears to be an old estate, is old fashioned and quaint. It is about 7 km out of Tomar in a remote village. Avo Genoveva runs the place and she is a wonderful, warm, sweet woman. Our room smelled a bit musty but by the second day of leaving the window open it was... More

We booked two rooms two months in advance through booking.com and one week before arrival we got a message that the property notified that they won’t be able to honor this reservation ... to get such a notice for a trip well planned and booked months in advance is unacceptable.

It was a privilege to spend five nights at Casa da Avo Genoveva, where the guest is welcomed into the lovely 400-year-old home of Maria Manuella and Jose. This property is lovely, and its owners are lovely, retired philosophy professors who wish to give nothing but the very best lodging experience. We stayed in the one-bedroom apartment, which was perfect... More

I very much enjoyed my stay at Casa da Avo Geneveva. The couple that own it are the nicest people you'll ever meet. Very friendly and helpful. And their dog, Bluto, is a real sweetheart, too. Keep in mind that the hotel is a bit remote. You'll no doubt arrive by car and will need a car to get anywhere... More

We booked a room for one night a few days before arrival, mostly because of TripAdvisor reviews. And we were not disappointed for a second! The owners were both so sweet and welcoming, and I so much regret I didn`t have time to accept their nice invitiation to see the house and garden. It is the old family house in... More

What an amazing place to stay. Fabulous house with a great selection on the buffet breakfast. The hosts were very nice and a pleasure to meet. It is tranquil and relaxing anf only a short drive into marvellous Tomar. Spotlessly clean and comfortable beds. This is a highly recommended venue to stay. Would definitely stay again if in the area.

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... More

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... More
