“Most Excellent Estalagem!”
Reviewed 19 October 2011

Falcão Mendonça is a charming place to stay. If you are on your way to the Douro, Falcão Mendonça is a place worth considering.
The rooms are beautiful and spacious, with great bathrooms. The beds were very comfortable with great bed pillows. (I mention pillows, because, unfortunately, it was the poorest feature of most rooms we stayed in Portugal except for Falcão Mendonça and Hotel Sana Silver Coast in Caldas da Rainha. I would have given a higher rate to most rooms I stayed in Portugal if the bed pillows were better.)
Upon arrival and settling in, we went to the courtyard and enjoyed a nice bottle of local cold white wine.
Based on the service and quality encountered at Falcão Mendonça, I asked Dona Dulce for a Estalagem booklet so I could reserve rooms at two other Estalagens on our way back to Lisbon from the Douro. None of them compared to the quality and service we encountered at Falcão Mendonça!
Many thanks to Dona Dulce and her staff for a great stay and for the good service and friendliness.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with inside shutters. You will have the quietest night ever and the room will be so d...

Estalagem Falcão Mendonça is an excellent choice for those wishing to explore Castelo Rodrigo and region. I strongly recommend that one travels between Figueira and Barca D'Alva, because the scenery with olive trees and the Douro River is superb. It took me some time to book a hotel in region. Other hotels in the area were either too expensive (Hospedaria do Covento), unresponsive (Casa da Cisterna, Hospedaria do Covento) or made ridiculous demands of antecipated deposits of immaterial sums in Portuguese banks (Quinta do Pero Martins and Casa da Cisterna). Dona Dulce, one of the owners of Estalagem Falcão Mendonça, is a very helpful, friendly and accommodative manager. The rooms are cozy, clean and inviting (with the luxury of a private hydro tub). The restaurant in the Estalagem offers good food at excellent prices. This inn is an outstanding value for the buck proposition. Highly recommended!

Estalagem Falco Mendonca (www.falcaodemendonca.com) is located about 10 minutes drive from Castelo Rodrigo. It is a four star inn that was a manor house built in the 1820's and was restored and opened as an inn in 2002. Each room is decorated beautifully and the bathrooms are very nice. The inn is located on the main highway at the west end of the town; the town is small and one can walk everywhere from the inn. Parking is easy and plentiful. The staff is very professional and friendly and a huge breakfast was included in the reasonable price of the room.
