“Best kept secret close to Coimbra”
Reviewed April 17, 2009

Professionally run Rural (you might know such places in Italy as "agriturismo") even with possibility for dinner with local specialities. However Lousa (Coimbra) is a kind of low-key area and you'll find some good and cheap restaurants in the city centre (Brazilian Churassaria was excellent value)

The rooms are designed with love and attention for details. Even in the bathroom they tried to keep the old spirit. You feel like living in a castle!

The owner family will receive you very friendly and helpful. Afternoon tea is prepared in your room and heating was switched on as it was pretty cold outside when we arrived shortly after Easter 2009. Continental breakfast was ok even I missed some assistance (e.g. filling up coffee can, asking for more items like egs)

In summer you can use a small pool or/and enjoy your day in the beautiful garden.

Some minor downsides are the direct area's poor suroundings (ruin houses), relatively hard beds and - for me at least - ashtrays everywhere (so be prepared for smokers?). No WiFi!

However a place to highly recommend even for longer stay!!

I'm not sure why I'm writing this because once others try this hotel the place will be fully booked all year.
The hotel is in fantastic location and is so very well run.
I gaurantee you won't stay there just once.
