A space open to the world

Located in the historic centre, Pousada Vila Real de Santo António is housed in two iconic buildings:, the Edifício da Alfândega and the Edifício da Igreja, which both have a prime location in Praça Marquês de Pombal, the city’s central square.

The Edifício da Alfândega has 40 rooms, and the Pousada reception is located in this building. The Edifício da Igreja has 17 rooms and is located right in front, on the opposite side of the square, approximately 109 steps away.

The welcoming and contemporary atmosphere of the Edifício da Alfândega offers an open space, including a dining area, with a pink pizza oven, which is the main focus of attention, and a large lobby that gives you access to a swimming pool on the ground floor, next to the interior courtyard. To get into the relaxed holiday spirit, you can also enjoy a plunge pool style pool on the rooftop, where you can get a glimpse of the neighbouring country, as well as the Guadiana River, the lighthouse, and where you can enjoy the stunning colours of the sunsets. A few steps away, the Edifício da Igreja invites you to immerse yourself in its modern atmosphere, where you can relax in complete tranquillity and take a dip in yet another stylish plunge pool that is located in the interior courtyard of this building.

The Pousada’s rooms are modern and comfortable, inviting for extended stays.

Its proximity with Spain, but also with the incredible long, sandy beaches that the Algarve offers, its golf courses, the Salinas, and the Sapal de Castro Marim Nature Reserve, make Pousada Vila Real de Santo António the ideal accommodation for those who value a peaceful and comfortable stay, but also want to explore the region, with its natural and cultural beauty.
