This year my "Réveillon", was with family, and we went to this Hotel Visconde da Varzea. I always loved this country side farm, and we do have many in Portugal. This one, near Lamego, is exceptional. 180 hackers large, were you can walk along, fields and fields of wines. And so many things to do, and see, go to swinging... More

We arrived around 6:30 in the evening and were totally creeped out upon arrival. The place was built in the 1800's and it was dark and not kept up well. We were greeted by two rather large dogs and a guy. The place was extremely dark and not welcoming. I asked to see our room and it was very dingy... More

Viscondes V, Proprietário at Hotel Rural Casa dos Viscondes da Varzea, responded to this review

We apologize for the unpleasant comment as the customer could have informed itself that our property is a charming hotel with recognized historical value and inserted in a farm of 180 hectares. As it is our habit we welcome our guests and show them our social areas, we also tell them the history of the place, but, on this night... More

This place really took me by surprise. It is so charming and sophisticated, but at the same time you feel like you're at your family's countryside house (from another decade), since it's so cozy and inviting. And the view...it really took by breath away! I opened my room's door everyday and was greeted with the most astonishing view of Douro's... More

My small-group tour stayed here two nights and we all loved it. The owner welcomed us with hugs and indulged us with straight-from-her-farm produce for breakfasts and dinner. It was harvest time and everything tasted divine. I will never forget the taste of the perfectly ripe peaches! The view from my room is the kind you only get to see... More

We had such a lovely weekend away. Despite 2 huge wedding events we felt at peace and left on our own. Had the pool to ourselves nearly all day. Loved the food and wine. Mentioned our wedding anniversary just before leaving dinner and there was a bottle of cava on ice in our room 15 minutes later. Will definitely return... More

This hotel is indeed a particular experience. It's house, it's an hotel, it's a shop, it's a garden. Great option for large (polite) groups enjoying such a large and refined house. This being said, few details could be improved : door of the room would not stay closed without turning the key, shower had a kind of changing personality, swimming... More

We enjoyed two wonderful nights in this beautiful hotel. Each room has two double beds and stunning views over the vineyards. The swimming pool was gorgeous. Dinner was absolutely fantastic don't miss it if you stay here - underneath the vines the very helpful friendly staff brought us two bottles of their own delicious wine with the meal. Try the...

I decided to take a romantic trip to Portugal with my girlfriend, and couldn't be more pleased with the choice I made to stay in this hotel during our stay in the northern part of the country. Between the beautiful vistas, the comfort you feel from the way the staff interact with and treat you with. It's almost as if... More
