This hotel is set on a hillside with sweeping views of the Douro wine valley and vineyards. The grounds landscaping is beautiful - in May the entire place was filled with flowers. Each room is unique. We ate dinner both nights at the hotel and were very happy we did. Perfect place for relaxing. Friendly staff, beautiful grounds, efficiently managed...just... More

Don't look any further! This is the place to stay. About 15 minutes out of Pinhao (up a winding, fairly precipitous road), Chanceleiros looks out across the steep-sided Douro and keeps the evening light. I read the TripAdvisor reviews and wondered if they were true. They are. The gardens are magnificent - roses, lavender and a gorgeous pool and tennis... More

Cozy rooms....wonderful views...lots of restful floral niches on the grounds for reading a good book....beautiful gardens....gracious hosts......outstanding meals.....and hiking in the adjacent vineyards. What is there not to love? Plus that bottomless bottle of Port is a nice extra touch. The pool was a little cool for the season, but on a hot summer day it would of been perfect!

Most beautiful place I've ever stayed. Gorgeous rooms, each set apart with its own terrace. Lovely gardens, particularly dense with roses. Dinners are delicious, each with a port apertif and two matched wines. One night we had herbed cheese on toast, octopus carpaccio, lamb, and chocolate souffle. The other night we had empanadas with a pumpkin chutney, melon and prosciutto,... More

Total attention to detail in every respect makes this one of the nicest places I have ever stayed at. From the room to the grounds to the food, a complete delight. Restful and beautiful in every way. We absolutely loved it. We hired a local guide to drive us to the wineries. That was a great idea as the roads... More

From the moment we arrived we knew we had found a special place and we knew we would regret not staying longer than 2 nights. We thank you Ursula & Adelaide, for the way in which you received us, how you made us feel ever so comfortable and at home. Thank you Helena for the delicious dinners prepared to perfection... More

Difficult to say any more than some of the other reviews here - all I can do is echo what they say - stay here! We book all our accommodation on the basis of the trip advisor reviews and have uncovered some gems but this is joint top. Everything has amazing views - the room, the pool, the breakfast/dining room... More

I have traveled extensively throughout the world and I am not lying by saying that if I could be any place in the world right now it would be the Casa de Visconde de Chanceleiros. There are fancier, more extensive, more luxurious places out there but I can't think of anywhere I have been with such a great mix of... More

We stayed for 2 nights in October 2014, and I am trying to work out when we will next be able to visit. There's something magical about this place from the minute you walk through the doors - it's unassuming, humble, and the staff are very friendly, but not in your face - you are made to feel as though...
