Such an amazing stay. The house is immaculately pristine, smells amazing, and Bruno is a fantastic host. Suites and bathrooms are large, and the house is very quiet (except for the large German Shepard across the alley, greeting all those who pass by during the day:). Late one night we were passing through the common room to our suite as...

We had originally booked only one night at the hotel, but after reading the positive reviews from other guests, I decided to change it to two nights, and I was not disappointed. The hotel is located right in the middle of town and it looks just as it does in the pictures. The customer service is 5-start. It is clean,...

The room was adequate in size, the lavatory was of good size and both were extremely well kept and very clean. Breakfast offered a variety of choices and freshly prepared. The little snack shop around the corner is actually a great place for...

We spent 2 wonderful days at Casa da Farmacia with Bruno and his team. He helped us getting around as we didn't have a car and organized a fantastic Fado concert. An unforgettable Douro experience was the ride with the ancient steem locomotive.

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.
