Fantastic if not in the basement room

I am very conflicted about my stay here. Before I mention the negative, I will mention the positive. First of it, it is a lovely home, and the owners are super friendly, and the staff is more than accommodating. The outdoor patio is splendid at night, and the meat and cheese spread with fruit is yummy, as well as the wine that is made right there. Now the negatives, at least for me, included having a substandard room downstairs that is about 10 feet from a busy road with speeding cars zipping by all the time. The noise level is the worst I have experienced. Upon further inspection, I noticed that the windows are basically attached only by hinges attached to stone openings -- they are not sealed in anyway so they fit loosely with gaps all around -- basically no insulation at all. In addition, it is a sparse room with an old (badly needing upgrades) bathroom. There were other issues as well, but basically all pertaining to that particular room. So, if you can be assured that you will not be put in the basement, you will probably love it. It really is very nice. I just don't know how I got that room.

Lovely original Portuguese home

Very suitable as a home but not so suitable for modern expectations of hotel comfort Parking below house off busy road with steps to climb with luggage however staff definitely helped us with this on arrival.

Pros: Very welcoming and friendly family and staff. Beautiful view across to Regua over the river from our travelling companions room and terrace

Location: Good location within a short drive to Regua across the river and not far from Lamego. Good starting off point for our drive up to Pinhao

A must go winery hotels at Regua

A historical winery hotel. All decoration are very fine and classic. Of course, you should not expect some modern facilities. But the room is comfy and clean Do try the dinner. We tried the smoked trout meal during our stay. We ate on a long dinig table and were served like king and queen. Furthermore, the couple owning the house are very nice. They will show guests around their house, grapes farm and wine making rooms, and will share their expertise knowledge about port wine. Beside, the house is convenient. It is about 30 minutes from the Regua train station on foot or less than 5 min. by taxi. Regua is also good getaway from Porto. Train from Porto to Regua is frequent daily with only 2 hours for a trip. At Regua, you can take boat trip of Douro River, go to port wine museum, take a mini tram ride at the town centre.

Decepção

Casa dos Varais não deveria abrir no verão pois não tem infraestrutura para o calor. Não tem ar condicionado e estávamos com 45ºC, não tem frigobar e nem TV. É uma casa onde o proprietário aluga quartos, não é um hotel. Foi uma decepção desde a chegada. Reservamos 2 noites e ficamos apenas uma pois o calor era insuportável sem ar condicionado. Nem janelas pudemos abrir pois o quarto ficaria mais quente ainda. um Horror.
