Family run with spectacular views from breakfast/dinner terrace. The two layer deluxe room with private balcony and well equipped bath/shower room was worth the extra cost. The super cute bulldog shuffles around or sleeps in the shade and is no problem for someone who doesn't normally like dogs.

What more can we say that hasn't already been said. This is the sort of place you wouldn't have a problem recommending to anyone. Believe all you read - a little piece of paradise. Food on each night was immaculately presented and of very high quality. Wouldn't bother with the drive into town to find restaurants as we don't believe... More

The standout part of our holiday for so many reasons. The property is simply stunning, as is the entire region. Value for many is excellent. There are more refined options, but not with the character and charm of Casa VC. The owners and staff make this feel more like a stately BnB. Then there is Molly the loveable bulldog, who... More

This is one of the most stunning places I have ever seen, and certainly the most beautiful in which I've had the pleasure to stay. My boyfriend and I were travelling with another couple and we were all blown away with the beauty of the accommodations and surrounding area, as well as the incredible service offered by Ursula and her...

An absolutely spectacular place - beautiful accommodation, very comfortable set amongst great gardens with a big pool. The whole family was happy and dinner under the olive trees was delicious and feels like home away from home. Very sad to only have spent one night, so would definitely recommend a 2-3 night stay to truly appreciate this jewel amongst the... More

This is a beautiful property in the hills of the Douro Valley about 5 kms from the sleepy town of Pinhao. Guest accommodations are very comfortable; the pool is peaceful; the gardens are spectacular; and the views are great. Breakfasts are good. They offer dinners for 38 euro including wine. We ate their once on our 2 night stay, and... More

This place is strongly recommended. The rooms are delightful. The people spoke English effortlessly. The dinners are extraordinary and, even better, the staff accommodates particular diets (veggie, gluten free, dairy free). Close to a number of vineyards, and the drive to it is spectacular.

Casa do Visconde is truly special. The property is beautiful with breathtaking views and impeccable service, but you've already read that in other reviews... Here are a few extra tips: 1. If you can, stay here at least 3 nights. We stayed only two and wished we had more time to explore the vineyards in the area as well as... More
