A wonderful property with service that is even better. The hosts are extremely friendly & accommodating. The rooms are beautifully decorated. Certainly a 5 star renovation on a 100+ year old property. Good location in the country with easy access to Porto (30 min) and to Duoro Valley (60 min).

This old country house has been careful renovated by the family owner and is treasured with a lot of love and spirit. Everywhere you can... More

We went to Portugal for the first time and expected nothing special. But what we found was very special: a beautiful surrounding, a lovingly built and furnished house with very comfortable rooms, a nice and neat garden with a pool, and what is most an extraordinarily helpful, friendly and caring staff that made us feel not to be guests but...

We loved the place. Very comfortable rooms, very clean, and very elegant. Iva was trying always to do her very best. We decided to have dinner there during the two nights we stayed .The food was very good and we felt spoiled!

Solar Egas Moniz is synonymous of serenity, comfort and welcome . The first sensation is the care and attention in detail how we are received . The house is historic , with its own history and with a touch of romantic modernism. Sit the breeze , hear the silence and there in the background we see meadows and cows! Do... More

From Sophia's warm welcome at the entrance to our fond farewell with the family and staff on our last morning, our experience here was wonderful. Iva, the manager, was a delight - the perfect innkeeper - she and her staff really understand customer service and incorporate it into everything they do. We stayed three days and left relaxed and rested,... More

We chose this place because of the positive reviews, and as it turned out it felt like we were visiting a friend’s house rather than a commercial hotel / B&B. Iva, her mum & dad, all the staff were very helpful and friendly. We ate in both the nights. On the 1st night we had an incredible meal (starters +... More

I stayed in this wonderful place with my wife father and mother in law and our springer spaniel Billy and we can't say enough good things about it. The house is very well presented and the attention to detail is tremendous but it is the people that made our time there so memorable. Iva is the driving force and is... More

The welcoming was exceptional - the owners made us feel at home and showed the place around. The place has amazing details and is built with great care and attention. And the breakfast was exceptional! Not to be missed!
