The hotel was located just out of the nearest town, about 5 min drive. There were several restaurants around and the owners happily provided us their recommendation. The house is located just by the river Vez. Around can be found a walking path along the river all the way to town. Also good for a short run (about 2K). The... More

My husband and parents spent a restful time in this beautifully converted olive mill. Marvelous breakfast. Great restaurant suggestions. Lush green environment! A must if you are in this area of Portugal. Bring your camera, sketchbook and pencils.

An idyllic location, sorrounded by a crystalline river where, among the fertile vegetation, frogs and even otter can be seen. Decorate with a very fine taste. Every morning is a celebration, wonderful breakfast. A green valley rounded of mountains, trails and amazing places nearby. Casa do Rio Vez is a space to rest and forget about the stress, with natural... More

I'm always thinking about go there any opportunity I have. It is a very nice place, peaceful and relaxing. The river sound during the night, all the birds around the trees. This is something not easy to find. The breakfast is great, tasty and you can eat whatever you want or can. The quiet place invites to read. I had... More

We've been to Casa do Rio Vez for a calm family weekend (parents and two children). It's a country chic house where you have all the modern amenities. At the same time you are surrounded by nature and at a doorstep of one of the most amazing natural parks of Portugal. There are plenty of outdoor activities for nature lovers.... More

Whilst Casa Do Rio Vez is set in beautiful surroundings we felt the owners have a confused idea of what they were offering. Two families of four traveled together and we booked all four rooms in the main house. We were told on arrival that we need not lock the main door during the day so we had a very... More

Indeed the guest who wrote this inopportune comment has a confused idea regarding what is the offer, better said, proposed, at Casa do Rio Vez. Indeed the guest in question, rented four of our five rooms, not the full state in self-catering, circumstance not previewed in our commercial policy.

We all loved Casa Rio do Vez and its idyllic riverside location. The breakfasts were superb, and Valerie & Anibal are helpful and engaging hosts. We stayed in Loft Luis (2 adults & 2 kids), the kids in the 'loft', and us on the sofa bed. I had thought this might be a bit of a pain, but it packed... More
