Where do I begin.... This place met and surpassed any expectation I ever had or could have for the perfect holiday destination. The Casa is beautiful, we both felt like we were stepping into another world when we entered the cobbled courtyard with paper lanterns hanging from the trees. Our host, Bruno, was beyond accommodating and he made our visit... More

Had a wonderful time at Casa da Farmacia. The place itself is great, but where it excels is the way they treat their guests. Bruno is the perfect host and goes a long way to make sure you make the best of your stay. Great breakfast too!

Was a memorable time in casa da farmácia. Bruno was the best host in Portugal. We recomend the portuguese custard served in the house. And he offer His cheires to us. Amazing!

We also booked here due to others' comments, and we were so glad we did. We were treated like family, and indeed we wish we were. When we arrived, we were told of several interesting places to visit before we headed to our next destinations right on the Douro over the next few days, and we also visited the Fonte... More

We stayed here for 1 night in May 2015. Our reservation was made few months ago for a twin room, based on the good reviews in Tripadvisor! On arrival, we realised that the room we were given was a tiny (hardly room to move or put more than 1 suitcase!), claustrophobic, dated (even the TV was small old type) double... More

The stay at Casa da Farmacia is one of our most memorable experiences during our two week trip to Portugal in July 2014! Hose and his wife were perfect hosts, very welcoming and helpful. Not only did they provide information and recommended activities for the stay; Hose also printed out maps, made an appointment for us to visit a nearby... More

This can be a tough place to find. Apparently they changed the name of the street so although Jose has tried to update all the booking sites it can still be hard to find but so well worth the exploration! Jose was a fabulous host and mapped out several wineries, viewing spots and the lovely vintage hotel for a sunset... More

We were really surprised by so warm welcome by owner. He was so helpful about what to visit, where to have lunch and etc. His attention to details (nice interior, perfect music - New Fado we were listening for first time in life...). Have to mention the dinner he prepared for us - it was perfect! And the breakfast so... More

A great little place, slightly off the beaten path, it exceeded our expectations. The proprietor is an excellent host and chef. Anyone who stays there should definitely try his gourmet meals. He was very helpful in recommending places to visit, providing maps, and arranging a boat trip on the Douro. A great place to explore the Douro Valley from. I... More
