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...

Wish we had stayed longer. Casual elegance.Beautiful no matter what or which way we looked at-- decorators take note. Dinner both the food and wine excellent. Very reasonable price for what it is. Likely one of the best places we ever stayed.

We very much enjoyed our relaxing stay at Casa do Visconde, which is located a couple miles from the Pinhao city centre up a steep hill that provides the hotel with some gorgeous views of the surrounding valleys. The staff are kind and helpful and prepared some truly wonderful meals for us that they paired with some great Portuguese wines... More

We stayed at this absolutely wonderful property in June for 3 nights and didn't want to leave we loved it so much. It was heaven on earth and so amazingly peaceful. Casa do Visconde de Chanceleiros is ideally set on a hillside with beautiful views across the Douro. The gardens are delightful, well maintained and provide an interesting wander. The... More

Of all the places we stayed during our month in Portugal. This is our favorite. Our room was large with a patio. The amenities were more than what we needed, a pool, hot tub and more. The grounds were well kept and pleasant to explore. The views of the vineyards are speculator. It was a great place to relax. The... More

My husband and I stayed here for five nights in late September. Loved the location and the friendly, helpful staff. Pool area and common areas were all very clean with amazing views of the surrounding valleys. Stayed in one of the deluxe double rooms, which was very nice and on two floors. Honesty bar is very convenient, with several locations... More

We would return in a second. We stayed in a villa/room just off of the pool. The sleeping area was enormous, as was the bathroom, and it had it's own patio. All of the amenities were terrific, as was the decanter of port in our room! We played tennis, walked around the beautiful grounds, enjoyed the hot tub, and had... More

This guesthouse was the best decision of our trip in Portugal. The owners and staff are friendly and helpful. The room was cosy and had a spectacular view to the wineyards of the Douro valley. Real value!
