Understated luxury in a magnificent setting. The food was delicious and the staff excellent 😄 Service at the bar was with a smile. Special thanks to Filipe whose knowledge of the area and the history of Portugal was excellent in addition to patiently answering outlet questions

We stayed there for one nicht travelling from Spain to Porto and it was a good choice. We had a room with an excellent view over the river Minho to Spain. Our room was spacious, clean and very quite (nearly no trafic in Valença after dinner time). As the fortress of Valença is really small everything is very close -... More

The price we paid for really very good accommodation with a balcony and sweeping views of the river and Tuy was way below the normal rate and included breakfast. I think there were only a few guests which may explain why. The hotel situated within the fortress could not be better placed although everything within the walls seems to close... More

I stayed one night at this Pousada and had a dinner. Pousada is located inside the the fortified village on a very touristic place facing Spain and Minho River. The building has a nice architecture but we can notice that the inside design and furniture shows that has already some decades. Service was great both at reception and at restaurant,... More

Stayed 3 days in a spacious, very comfortable room with balcony. The views over the river Minho into Spain are truly magnificent, both from our room and from the dining room, bar and lounges of the hotel. The hotel has only 18 rooms, but the public rooms on the ground floor are very spacious and welcoming as well as the... More

Second stay here & loved it again. Loved driving into & thru the fort to find this hidden gem of a hotel at the end. Room with balcony & view over the water to Spain, just terrific. Quiet & relaxing, great walking areas in the fort as well as in the little local streets with little shops. Dinner was great... More

The hotel is located at a breathtaking location with views that are great at any time of the day (provided no fog....). The interior is a bit old fashioned but offers a pleasant atmosphere. The sofas in the lounges are a bit saggy. WiFi signal is weak in many locations so one has to look for a place where you... More

We drove through the various archways in the old town with some trepidation - some of the archways are very narrow - and enchantment at the attractiveness of the town. The atmosphere in the Pousada was peaceful and calm, the bedrooms were quite spacious and the welcome was sincere and helpful. We enjoyed a lovely dinner looking out over the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pousada de Valenca opened in 1962, a project by architect Joao de Mello Breyner Andresen. This Pousada embraces the Vale do Rio Minho from the green Portuguese banks to the Galician progress which involves the Tui cathedral. Situated on the frontier with Spain on top of the historical centre and the fortified Valenca, the Pousada of Sao Teotonio has a magnificent view of the neighbouring lands resting on the town's walls, where you can feel the harmony of nature in an idyllic setting. This hotel in Valenca is characterized by its welcoming aspect, with its grand fireplaces which stand out in the drawing room. Guests can visit in Valencia several points of interest such as the church of Santa Maria dos Anjos, the House of Eirado or the Church of Santo Estevao. ... more   less
