Excellent place to spend a week or two, with a beautiful surronding river and a garden with various fruit trees. The breakfasts have a great variety full of homemade products. Finally, the staff is family ran and you can feel immediately at home the minute you go through the gates.

It's a family business, they have only 6 rooms, but the place is beautiful. The whole house is made in old style, the rooms have wooden ceiling, stone walls, etc. Outside everything well arranged, you can pick some fruits from the trees. The breakfast is faboulos, tasty, everything home made.

Because I was walking with my father, who had some health problems during the Camino, we decided to walk short stages and enjoy the places we were visiting. After seeing the ads throughout the way, we opted for staying one night in Casa do Rio and so, split the long 30km walk from Barcelos to Ponte de Lima. Being used... More

We stayed at Casas do Rio in early October. We stayed for one night (we were walking the Camino) but wished we could have stayed longer. We arrived tire and were offered fresh fruit juice and a piece of cake before checking in. The owner’s daughter and Thelma were gracious and kind, even offering to wash our clothes (and if... More

A short detour off the Caminho Portugues brings you to this welcoming Casa with swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, lovely grounds, fig trees, game room, and wifi. Rooms are modern and beautifully appointed. Laundry service available for pilgrims. Nearby restaurant owner picked us up and drove us to his wonderful restaurant for supper, then ferried us back. Sumptuous breakfast offered at... More

My wife and I spent three wonderful nights with Jose and his family at Casas do Rio.  We were graciously met at the train station by Jose Jr.,  and taken on a tour of their home and grounds by both him and his sister Filipa.  After the tour, these two delightful young hosts offered us fresh home-baked treats and fresh...

As a member of a small traveling party from Denmark walking through the country side as a pilgrim on the way to Santiago, I found that Casa de Rio was exceeding the idea of the picture perfect place to be. First of all, everything about the hotel looks like it was styled by people who really know how decorating is... More

I found this place whilst walking camino Portuguese and decided to make a detour rather than walk too long in the heat. The hotel is absolutely outstanding and one of the nicest places I have stayed. The grounds are glades with olive trees, ancient oaks and fall away to the small river in the shade. The swimming pool was just... More

Where do I start? Jose and his daughter made our stay just great. The place itself is immaculate. The grounds are incredible! They really love the place and it shows. The attention to detail is great. Jose and his wife just had their first grandchlid be born on the day after we arrived. They still managed to go out of... More
