The service was pleasant and kind, the view is amazing and the house is beautifully designed! highly recommended. note: the water's colour at the pool was green... wasn't so tempting to get into, although we eventually did (after we were told it's safe and clean).

Sleepy hotel with poor service in a remote village

Posted 13-Jun-2018 on Hotels
The views are amazing, and so is the pool. But we struggled to find staff to check in and any time thereafter. It was a bit creepy because no one could be found to provide service. It's very remote and the closest vineyard (quinta) is a 45-minute walk away. The food they served at dinner was not great, but the wine and port were delicious and plentiful. Only consider this place if you are looking for a completely restful few days with your partner.

Beautifully furnished. Quiet Hotel

Posted 14-Oct-2017
Pros: Location
Cons: Restaurant offerings
Location: 12 km from Pinhao on mountain roads many Quintas and small towns to visit
Hotel is full of the owners collection of antiques, many Chinese. Fantastic views of the Duro valley from rooms terrace and pool. Beautiful common rooms to relax and read in. Restaurant was OK but not great. A little difficult to get to but well worth the effort

Far away hotel

Posted 24-Sep-2017
Cons: Get rid of bugs in the beds.
Location: Wonderful setting for trips in the Douro valley, but far too remote to be recommended.
Very remote hotel in a Quinta - a long windy mountainous road from Pinhao with the last kilometre one way only and precipitous on one side. Fortunately we met nothing coming the other way, Estate house is fine with a wonderful Chinese collection of antique furniture and chinoiseries. However food was rather poor. One of our two beds had bugs in it and my wife was very badly bitten (about 20 bites).

Wonderful staff; great view

Posted 16-Aug-2017
Pros: The view, authentic Portuguese farmhouse with the view overlooking the Douro. Vania, receptionist, waitress etc was so nice and helpful.
Cons: The mattress a little too hard!!
Location: Wonderful views and remote from the crowd
Stunning views from our window and wonderful building. Breakfast simple but adequate. We had the evening meal which was delicious. As the quinta is set in its own vineyard the free flowing wine that came with the meal was very much appreciated as was the delicious port wine. Our room was simple but had all we desired.

Excellent dinner...True Portuguese food... Be prepared for a tight drive up to the hotel but we'll worth it.... Quiet and blissfully. ..
