Casa do Pocinho is a 2 story house in a residential neighbourhood, very quiet, with limited traffic and 3 minutes by foot from Praça do Giraldo. It’s also very close to the other main attractions of Évora such as the Roman Temple, São Francisco Church, Capela dos Ossos and the main Cathedral.

The house will be entirely for you and you’ll have full access to the lovely private terrace from where you can watch the sunset.

Évora is very easy to reach from anywhere in the country by bus or by train. If you bring your car, paid parking spaces are available in the nearest streets (on the weekends and out of the city walls they’re free). If you need an extra single bed, we are happy to set it up for you for an extra €15/night. We also have a baby bed available to put in the room you prefer at no extra cost. We are a family of travellers so we know how important it is to feel welcomed! We’ll try to be available for anything you might need.

Reviews

Our new friends have been saying...

Very nice and fresh, newly renovated with good taste. Nice welcoming from Carolina's mother. The house is very near the city center, still it's very calm where the house lies.

Emma (Sweden) -April 2017

We had a great time in your lovely house! Congratulations on the tasteful renovation, we really like it. And thanks again for our New Year's treat.

Stephan (Germany) -December 2016

Paula is a great host. The house is lovely. It is cozy and comfortable. The location is excellent as it is close to the historical center, restaurants, view points and local shops. Highly recommended.

Olga (Russia) -January 2017

What a lovely place to stay! The location is close to the center of Évora and easy to navigate around the town. Our host met us late in the evening to lead us to the apartment which was helpful. She gave us an orientation of the house and amenities she provided. We took a tour of the Megaliths, so interesting, and the Chapel of Bones. Our host made dinner reservations which she then changed to lunch for us. Excellent communication and perfect place to stay!! Thanks so much.

Paula (United States) -October 2017

This apartment is within walking distance of everything in Évora. It is very clean, well appointed, and nicely decorated. Our hosts were welcoming and clearly explained important details of the house. The rooftop patio near the washing machine is a wonderful feature. Our hosts even went out of their way to help when my husband had a medical issue to make sure he was taken care of. Highly recommend!!!

Candace (United States) -September 2017

Beautiful! This house has everything. The location is so close to the centre square and is surrounded by lovely restaurants and shops. The Roman ruins are an easy walk away and are well worth it. The house has been beautifully renovated with comfortable beds and tasteful decor. The rooftop terrace with views across the city is wonderful, particularly at sunset. We felt thoroughly looked after here with ample provisions supplied and great communication by the host. I would highly recommend this spacious, comfortable and stylish home in beautiful Évora.

A bit of History

Casa do Pocinho is located in what used to be a Jewish quarter between the 13th and 15th centuries. It was one of the most populated in Portugal with synagogues, legal and administration bureaus, butchers, hospitals, jail, baths, etc. The jews were expelled in 1496 by the king D. Manuel I and now very few remains can be found from that time. The most important one is probably the ogival door with the mezuzah mark in Travessa do Barão.
