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...

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
