This wonderful small hotel manages to blend the new and the old in perfect harmony. Built from the shell of an old private house (including the remnants of several roman columns embedded in the incredibly thick stone walls) this hotel provides a level of comfort that is first class. The rooms are a good size, stylishly decorated with comfortable beds. The bathrooms are modern and functional with a nice powerful shower. All rooms have underfloor heating so walking on the tiled floor is a pleasure even in the winter months. All rooms have a flatscreen TVs – there are a couple of channels with English language. The location is perfect too. Although Vouzela is only a small place, The Casa Museu is situated in the centre of town and is close to easy parking, which is free. Internet access is available free of charge in the hotel lobby area. Breakfast is a simple affair but the food is tasty and fresh and always replenished.
When you have finished relaxing in your room after a day of sightseeing, amble down to the dining room and sit in front of a real wood burning fire and relax further. The owner has created a very cosy area within a modern setting. You can thumb through the owner´s wine guides or browse the fledgling wine collection. If you are interested in wine, ask the him about the local produce- he has a good knowledge of Portuguese wines. He´ll certainly offer you a glass of Port Wine, which is very welcome on a cold winter night. In fact, the family who own this hotel is probably the best we have encountered. They are incredibly welcoming and attentive, always ensuring that you are comfortable and that everything is to your liking. We really can´t recommend this hotel highly enough. If you are ever in Vouzela, don´t even consider staying anywhere else. This is how all hotels should be.
