Amazing history in a place that has been in the owner's family for over 800 years. An impressive estate with vineyards, gardens and great walks over 180 hectares. The home feels warm and welcoming and is full of historical antiques and art work. Loved the veranda and wonderful breakfasts and dinners served in the family dining room, surrounded by well...

My family stayed at the Hotel Rural Casa dos Viscondes da Varzea for 4 nights in April 2015 . I don’t normally write reviews but I have made an exception for this lovely place which I would be happy to return to one day. Ambience: the building is a gorgeous old house filled with antiques, log fires (which are lit... More

Truly lovely old authentic building and surroundings. The view from the balcony is just breathtaking. Our room did however smell - it smelt of old and dare I say it damp. A few other rooms that we visited also smelt bad. I know that being the middle of trees doesn't help but they need to look into this problem. Our... More

Amazingly sumptuous chateau-style hotel. Very friendly owner, Maria, and lovely staff. Very quiet. Near enough to drive to the Douro. The dogs look fierce but they are docile. Can't recommend it highly enough. Christine

A beautifully renovated mansion, surrounded by peaceful nature and stunning views over the rolling vinyards. The hotel has only 16 rooms, all simply but elegantly decorated. Don't come here if you're looking for flat screen TVs, in-room entertainment centers, or rain showers which are common fare in every 5* chain hotel. However if it's peace and authenticity you're after, you... More

Such a beautiful place. The grounds are very scenic and there are so many fruit trees, and beautiful views of the vineyards. The dinner buffet was excellent with a lot of variety. The owner, Maria, was very pleasant and her staff were most helpful and friendly. We enjoyed our stay very much and wish we had more time there to... More

We stayed here for two nights in July and wished we had planned a longer stay. This is an oasis of calm with a stunning view from both the main Manor House and the annex where we had our bedroom. Beautiful and elegantly decorated this is not a true hotel experience but more the privilege of a warm welcome with... More

Since I booked this hotel after reading all the amazing reviews on tripadvisor, I have no choice to share our experience. I still don’t understand why they only have 5 starts reviews… it looked like this was the best hotel in the Portugal! This is not a 5stars hotel or a 5 stars experience. Let me lower your expectation with... More

What a lovely place. My Friend and I stayed here for one night whilst touring the Douro valley. Peaceful elegance. Our room was amazing, beautiful decor. Views over the surrounding vineyard and gardens. The beds were lovely and comfortable. The staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. The breakfast was superb and we were spoilt for choice. We arrived... More
