A stately Manor House, located in a small (nothing to get excited about) village some 10 minutes from Pinhao, overlooking the extremely beautiful and calm hills of the Douro Valley covered by vineyards, houses the huge antique (but still used) kitchen, the library and living room with luxurious armchairs and antique furniture as well as the wintergarden like terrace with...

The two hostesses, Ursala and Adelaide, will make for an unforgettable stay in this beautiful hotel set high in the Duoro Valley. The views from the garden and rooms are majestic. The rooms are comfortable and the meals are delicious.

If youre seeking an incredible splurge, in a gorgeous location, with absolutely amazing scenery along with many glasses of included port, you've found the place. Even during the early spring/off-season, the Casa is splendid with lush gardens bursting awake in the brisk spring sunshine. The hills of the Valley are bright green and lush and the birds are chirping their... More

This just an amazing, off the beaten path hideaway, with beautiful gardens and views of the Douro Valley. The rooms are very large, the manicured gardens with flowers in bloom late into October, breakfast and dinner both worth staying for and the view of the Douro Valley spectacular. Ursula selects the wine paired with dinner which is a nice touch... More

We arrived for a three-day visit on a stormy Monday evening in October, having followed the river road along the Douro east towards Spain. The Casa was a welcome respite. It is tucked into a vine-covered ridge with long views down the Douro Valley just west of the viniculture center at Pinhao; the traditional names in port and the young... More

Wonderful place with terrific facilities run by a delightful owner that sees to your every comfort. Very good meals available on site. Ideal location to visit the Port wine heart of the Douro River valley. From Pinhao, take a boat tour up the river to see the vineyards and wineries of the great port producers.

We really enjoyed our 3-night stay in late September. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and well-maintained. Our bungalow,F, was charming and comfortable, not in any way cookie cutter. The service is excellent -- same for the food. We explored during the mornings and relaxed at the pool in the afternoons. You would not want to drive around the area at... More

Once you arrive at this hotel you will "need" to stay for the night so we recommend that you do everything in town and maybe a river cruise before arriving. The drive up along switchbacks is, thru vineyards is breathtakingly beautiful but hard to navigate in even a medium rental car. Use your horn as you approach narrow curves to... More
