It is a great place to relax, however be aware that its is far to get to and the road is quite curvy. There is also the problem of constant fog...quite expected as you are driving through a mountain road! The hotel is great to relax and with the 2 livings rooms being equiped with fire places, makes up a... More

This is the best hotel I ever stayed! Impecable since the first moment to the end! I strongly recomend to have dinner at the hotel, the Chef Jorge Guedes is doing a perfect food! This is a perfect place for a honey moon!

This is a special place, in a unique setting. It´s seem to be specifically oriented to nature lovers, hikers and/or skiers, there are a lot of mountain trails around, so if that´s not your thing the only option left is relax in this remote place. There is also a indoor swimming-pool with some jets and a sauna, but I would... More

The setting is breathtaking and the level of comfort and service is exceptional.We were constantly surprised at the level of thought that must have gone into the internal and exterior design. Unfortunately the weather was very poor when we stayed but this enabled us to take advantage of the spa and swimming pool. It was the first time that I... More

The location couldn't be better. The fluvial beach of Vale do Rossim is a 10 minute walk away and the water quality is fabulous. In the summer opt for a "varanda room" open to the outside green (common with the swimming pool) with a mountains spectacular view.

Fantastic location. Great views from generous patios with comfy chairs. You can't help but relax and re-energise. Lovely food/wine & good value for money. Snacks & drinks available all day free of charge with honesty box for alcoholic drinks. Well designed hotel - it's amazing what they can fit into a room. Good indoor pool/spa but swimming caps are mandatory.... More

Yes, it is in the middle of nowhere, but it is just amazing! Friendly and welcoming staff. Nice rooms. Self service for drinks - just put your room no on a paper. Nice spa incl small pool. AND amazing food! The price for the dinner is totally worth it! Eat there and nowhere else! Local products at its best! Would... More

When we got to the hotel, we were pretty flabbergasted. It's beautifully decorated (sports a Nordic vibe), and the scenery is absolutely stunning. It's a cool model for a hotel - it's very small and there are communal spaces (two living rooms and a dining area which serves as a café between meals) that you can spend time in. If... More

This is a wonderful hotel that combines incredibly friendly and accommodating service with a spectacular location and wonderful food. Definitely worth the drive up the mountain to stay there. I recommend taking advantage of the natural environment (they have suggested walks of varying lengths in the mountains and can provide a picnic lunch and even backpacks for the ill prepared)....

From the moment we arrived here the atmosphere and service, like its location atop a majestic mountain stands out. The first dinner started with an amuse bouche of pear melon, mint and red peppercorn along with a glass of aperol like aperitif with cinnamon and rosemary. Smoked Raghu of pork sausage delicately breaded surrounded by a exquisite apple sauce. Following... More
