Hop off the train and catch a later one back to Porto. A great day, Beautifully appointed, restaurant, wine lounge with it's small bar, No appointment spared, Lovely view of the river from the patio and garden. Excellent meal. Spendy, but worth it. The rooms are a bit Spartan, not consistent with the beauty and furnishing of the downstairs. Lovely... More

A perfect place for a weekend with your wife far away from the civilization. Try a run in the morning, after having a look at the bridge from the balcony of your room! The best in the Douro Valley for sure! Have a port wine downstairs. The rooms are large enough.

We stayed here for two nights as a base for exploring the Douro Valley. The hotel is beautiful and in the style of an old country house. The first room they gave us was unsuitable as it had two small beds pushed together to make a "double bed". I don't like it when hotels do this but the staff were... More

This is a brilliant hotel set in the most perfect valley, a stay here is truly memorable. Common areas are luxuriously and comfortably furnished with leather couches, a wood fire, and heaps of interesting art. We dined in the restaurant which was excellent- both food and wine were terrific, not overly expensive, and the service was very professional. The room... More

Spent one night here and wished I stayed longer. Only ate breakfast (didn't have dinner here) but found this hotel to be nearly ideal. For starters, the air in the Duoro valley smells like honey and port. The hotel is located right on the river, in the tiny town of Pinhao. Our room was large with french doors opening out... More

I was one of a group of 6 who stayed one night here. The only downside to the property is that its layout is a bit confusing, with discontinuous levels and odd staircases. My room was good-sized, with the best bed I slept on in Portugal, and a lovely little balcony with a stunning view of the Douro directly below.... More

Stayed in this gorgeous hotel for two nights, rooms were large and really nice, with beautiful views of the river. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Buffet breakfast was good, also room service, which we had one evening. We really enjoyed our stay at Vintage House, and would recommend it to others. We stopped in the vineyard village of Favaios...

We loved our room with a view (as they all have) in this pretty spot on the river. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. I had a heavy cold and they brought an electric fire to warm up the room on an unseasonably cold day. We also had a delicious meal delivered by room service. The only criticism is... More
