We enjoyed our stay tremendously! The little stone houses set in natural surroundings, the tranquil bio pool and the warm and indulgent hospitality made our stay perfect. Catarina and the staff were very responsive and catered to our every request and need. The farm is meticulously maintained and looked after. Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation. Can't wait to return.
Charming experience. From the typical stone houses to the porch overlooking the ecological pool, to the close contact with nature, it was a very pleasant family weekend. My daughter could swim with the frogs, feed the sheep, pick vegetables from the garden, and ride her bike around the property :)
My wife and I stayed at Chão do Rio for our honeymoon and we couldn't imagine a more perfect place. From the lovely, kind staff to the very generous daily breakfast basket and fresh bread, we felt very special and welcome. The house was comfortable, well equipped and cosy, with a beautiful fireplace to warm us up in the evenings. It was calm and quiet and we can't wait to come back!
What a cool place to wind down and relax. Had the best time here with my wife and daughter. The staff is really nice and helpful, always there for you. We stayed at Ribeira house which had all the things needed for our stay, from kitchen utensils to bathroom amenities. The only thing lacking in this house was the AC, which would have been useful for the hotter days we spent there. Breakfast is not served here but you get a basket full of local products that you can use to make your own breakfast. Also, freshly baked bread is delivered everyday to your house. It has an awesome bio pool, with frogs and water lillies. I drive an electric car and despite not having a public charging point, they facilitated me an electric outlet for me to charge it during the night. Will definitely come back to this place.…
Heaven on earth. Nature at it’s best. This “Turismo” was all we’ve dreamed of. The cottage was cosy and decorated with care and thought. Actually it was so lovely we decided to stay in and chill. The kids were fascinated with the goats and swam in the bio-pool with water Lillies and frogs singing around them. We ate in a few times, as the kitchen is well equipped and they have a lovely vegetable garden you are free to use.
This is such a special place. The accommodations could not have been more comfortable and it is beyond spotless. The staff is incredibly warm and welcoming and the welcome basket and fresh wood fired bread make this an incredible place to escape and feature some of the best gourmet items from the region and Portugal. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

The development is beautifully arranged, forming a village of houses centered around the biological pool. The houses are also very beautiful and comfortable. The existence of a stove made it possible to heat the house well despite very low outdoor temperatures. The staff was very friendly and always helpful. A special note for the quality of the basket of regional products for breakfast. Undoubtedly a very pleasant place to escape the stress and confusion of the city and a good base to get to know the Serra da Estrela and the "Xisto" Villages.
Very nice place for a relaxing and invigorating break. You will enjoy the sound of nature, the smell of earth and trees and the nice food too. The place is very pleasant, the houses are cosy and very comfortable. Either during the winter or summer, definitely highly recommend the place.
Even though it was raining, our two night stay at Chão do Rio was very nice. Cosy and adorable, the family home was confortable and equipped with everything. The eco pool is magical and the sound of birds, frogs and the church bell make a true countryside experience. Top dedication from all personel. A true gem for such low price. They should definetelly update the rates.
