This hotel was recently renovated and converted from a grand manor house. We had a spacious room with a large bathroom in the main building (there are others in a newly built annexe). The room had exposed granite walls and pillars incorporated into the modern stylish décor. In the grounds, there is a swimming pool and tennis courts. We went... More

Absolutely fantastic hotel. Hotel staff very accommodating. Owner, Fernando very friendly. Breakfast and dinner menus very good. Last night of our stay the hotel surprised our party with beautiful pork in red wine. Facilities fantastic, swim indoor/ outdoor, Sauna, jacuzzi and steam room. If you want total relaxation this is the place.

Just one night in this well priced hotel. Some language problems at reception where the girl spoke only Portuguese - regular girl said to be away. The owner was called and spoke French , so all resolved. Very comfortable, restaurant ok and lovely pool with indoor facilities for those staying longer, nearby town of Chaves an easy and rewarding trip.

If you plan to visit this place expect things such as: - Very nice room (superior room) - Terrible breakfast: I mean very short selection and no quality at all. This fact just makes us not consider it again in the future - Restaurant: nice set menu with quality food - € 11 lunch and € 18 dinner with starter,... More

Super friendly owners, brilliant staff, excellent food. We stayed three nights and wished it could have been longer. Definitely the place to stay in Northern Portugal. We will be back as soon as possible.

Hotel rural Casas Novas er bygd opp omkring ruinene av en meget gammel Romersk bebyggelse, en vinfabrikk og ligger i utkanten av en typisk landsby 10 min fra Chaves by. Restaureingen av bygningen er gjordt med den største pietisme og respekt, men samtidig fyller hotellet alle krav en moderne turist vil forvente. Rommene er topp moderne, smakfullt interiørmessig og med... More

We stayed in Hotel Rural Casas Novas for a couple of nights. The weather didn't help, because it rained the whole time, but even so our stay was much pleasant. The staff does simply everything to make you feel welcomed. The hotel is very confortable, and you really feel at home. My kids just loved it. The indoor swimming pool... More

The Hotel lays in a restored 18th century manor located a few minutes away from the beautiful ancient city of Chaves and near to many thermal water stations.

Would have liked to have more time to spend there. Beautiful mansion runned like a family business, it even closes at midnight ;-) Very large rooms with a even larger view. Perfect place to relax
