“delightful stop in the Portuguese countryside”
Reviewed April 29, 2012

This rural hotel consists of a late 19th c. house were breakfast is served and where guests can lounge in the evening in a cozy parlor. The rooms are in a separate, modern and modernist building, all in a row along a corridor. The grounds are extensive, with an orchard sloping up a hill. The location is a bit out of the way, but we found it to be a convenient stop between Porto and Coimbra. As a family of four we took two adjacent rooms. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Our children enjoyed the rural location very much, and the breakfast was absolutely outstanding. Since we visited during a wet and cold April we can't comment on the pool of the air-conditioning. Strongly recommended.

Reviewed September 4, 2008

We were not sure what to expect when we booked this hotel and were delighted. The hotel comprises a beautiful old house and rooms in modern blocks near by - well situated and designed. The rooms are contempory and comfortable with wooden floors and modern bathrooms, fluffy white towels and good quality toiletries. The pool is fantastic. The area around the hotel is very flat and there are sweeping views from the room and pool. The excellent breakfast is provided in the main house around a large table with the other guests. Our hosts are clearly very proud of their hotel and made us feel very welcome and took care to provide us with useful information on the area, including details of festivals, beaches, restaurants. Our only critiscism would be that the rooms were poorly ventilated. The window is the door and so could not safely be opened at night. A fan was provided but was too powerful and noisy to have on for long. We would consider returning but would not recommend three in a room (our daughter had an extra bed in the room - a separate room would have been better, as the room was not large). Although a few miles away from Aveiro it was only a 10 minute drive away and so we did not feel that we were too remote. We were able to find two good restaurants and so ate well during our short stay. The hotel at 110 euros per night including breakfast was good value.
