He likes telling stories about the local area and could not be more supportive of us travelers. His staff prepares homemade jams and desserts from his farm nearby. He also presents fresh fruit...

This place is simply awesome! Our room was cozy and comfortable, breakfast was the best we've had during our entire trip but what makes this place extraordinary is the hospitality of Bruno, the owner. We got to taste the wine and other products he makes. He told us a lot about the region and the local products of Douro Valley.... More

The Casa is beautiful, we both felt like we were stepping into another world when we entered the cobbled courtyard with paper lanterns hanging from the trees.

Had a wonderful time at Casa da Farmacia. The place itself is great, but where it excels is the way they treat their guests. Bruno is the perfect host and goes a long way to make sure you make the best of your stay. Great breakfast too!
