“Fantastic place to relax”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

This is a fantastic place to stay. Careful thought has gone into the design of the accommodation, the breakfast is bountiful and if you choose then whole days can be spent relaxing in the garden. You can swim in the river which runs alongside Casa do Rio Vez or if you prefer, use the pool. It is also easy to access the national park which has numerous marked walking routes.

Room Tip: All have river views.

We stayed here for two nights as were attending a wedding near by. Casa do Rio is run by a family who bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable. We arrived at 11pm and despite it being quite late, the whole family greeted us and gave us a tour of a the grounds and were incredibly friendly and welcoming. They are clearly very proud of the hotel, which has only been up and running for 4 months. There is a pool, basketball and badminton courts, pool table and lots of games. The rooms are comfortable and breakfast delicious, with homemade jams from the fruit trees on the property. We were sad to only stay for two nights and are considering going back! A lovely, relaxing place to visit.

Casa Do Rio Vez was a real, pleasant, surprise! Next to the river Vez, this old olive mill makes you relax instantly. The interiour of the old olive mill is very modern and inspiring. The rooms are good, cosy and the beds makes you want to go to bed very early! Valerie, the host, will provide a luxurous breakfast every morning and knows all the 'where to's' in the surrounding area.

We stayed in Arcos de Valdevez for 3 nights as a base to explore Peneda Geres Park and for visiting towns and villages in the area. I found Casa do Rio Vez through Secret Places and we were so glad we did! It's a very attractive Bed and Breakfast with wonderful views of the river and garden and trees out of every window. The interior is modern and super appealing. Our bedroom wasn't huge, but definitely big enough to be comfortable. Breakfast is generous and delicious and served in the bright and airy dining room/living room area . In addition to the regular fare there were different homemade treats each day -- fresh cakes, compotes, crepes... The weather was too wet for us to explore the grounds, but you can take walks and even swim in the river on their property. Valerie and Anibal were so sweet and gracious. They were fabulous hosts and our getting to meet and talk with them added so much to our stay. I'd love a chance to go back again!
