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

Together with our son we spend a lovely day. A pity we had to leave the day after. Very friendly staff, passionate owner with a big heart for their guests and the business. Large breakfast buffet with lots of local choice. Nicely located between the wine yards with great view from the rooms. We right away felt at home...

We were on a classic car rally in Portugal this week and stopped here for lunch. The property belongs to Viscountessa Maria who will tell you,if you ask the most amazing and tragic story of her life that has a wonderful ending, she is amazing person who is so warm and welcoming. The lunch was wonderful and the atmosphere was... More

Hotel and grounds are lovely. Staff are more hard working than most of the staff in Portugal. However, upon learning of our unfortunate late arrival and closed rental for the car - we were nickel and dimed at every opportunity. "Can we get some sandwiches for lunch" no you have to sit down. That will be 60euro (very expensive for... More

We traveled to Portugal to explore the wine country. Booked at Casa Dos Viscondes da Varzea. Best part of our trip. Very romantic scenery. Dinner and breakfast was awesome. Hotel interior top class. Staff very friendly. A must when you travel to Portugal. The owner made spesial dinner arrangements for our friends birthday. Thanks for that!

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...

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.
