Très belle endroit,paysage à couper le souffle. Merci

8/10 Very Good

It was very picturesque, views were incredible and the staff are very friendly. Our room was on the second floor which had a shared balcony with 2 other rooms so not much privacy and you could hear everyone’s conversations. Also be aware when choosing this hotel that they don’t accept credit cards, only cash. We did not get that notification and were not prepared to have that much cash at check in. (The manager was quite rude about it but another staff member helped us find a solution.)

The property is located in a prime location within the Douro valley and the view from our room was world class. It is a beautiful hotel and setting. Our only negative was the word at check in that they did not accept credit cards..... The local ATM only dispensed up to E200 every 24 hours..... Not acceptable in this day and age,

Amazing in every way! Best view! Best helpful staff. We didn’t bring cash- forgot they don’t take cards Titianna was so helpful and patient. Best staff at any hotel I’ve been in- anywhere. PayPal did the trick. The breakfast was the best ever! View of the Douro from our table! Room was cozy. Great dining recommendation. We felt so taken care of there. It was by far, the best place we have stayed in Portugal! The home is beautiful as is everything. We didn’t want to leave.

Absolutely stunning guesthouse in the Douro valley with well appointed rooms. Peaceful and pastoral with a more than accommodating and pleasant staff. The view of the Douro valley from our terrace was breathtaking. We stayed 4 nights, but were sad to leave.
