This small hotel, 10 rooms and 2 other short distant, is exactly what one needs to hide away from everything! Great rooms, well decorated, staff if exceptional and make you fell like home. We will definitely return as soon as possible. They have a farm for guests to visit though we didn't as we had a little baby.
We stayed in the suite, great room with living room.
The breakfast is unique: exceptionally well presented, fresh products, very good variety, home made cake, cheese, etc. you will not forget their breakfast for a long time!!! After all, hotels are also a lot about breakfast!
The swimming pool is very relaxing, you can stay there for hours alone,no noise, just sun and the nature.
The facilities are greatly maintained!
We hope this hotel will start to have more guests as the reviews stand up, it's definitely an excellent choice for those looking for a relaxing country side hideaway. We loved it!
Negative side is finding it in the dark at late night, not much water pressure in the shower, short availability of pool menu and quite slow pool service as we were alone in the hotel. The room service charge € 10 is quite high.
Will look forward to come back again!!
Do yourself a favor and visit this place for a couple nights!! Dine in close by Cova do Lobo restaurant - 30 minutes drive!

We found this hotel as a last minute google search. And boy are we glad we found it. It is a little difficult to find, as it's not actually in Gouveia, but rather a little village about 4km away. You need to enter Vinho into the GPS and from the village centre, follow the signs. The hotel is therefore a little out of the way and not near anything. If you are wanting nightlife, restaurants, this hotel is not for you.
However, if you want simply a fantastic night in a beautiful hotel, great service, food, rooms, in a magical location, then this is the place for you.

The service is exceptional. You are treated as an individual guest and not just one of many. All the rooms front onto a pool, surrounded by vinyards, and farms. Everything is brand new (and apparently it is, only 2 years old).

While there is only one restaurant, the dinner was great and beautifully presented, while the breakfast was also great.

The hotel sits on a farm and once out the doors, everything feels rural, with vinyards, sheep, farm sheds etc. This is no-way detracts from the stay, but rather enhances it.

I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to experience rural Portugal while staying in a high-quality hotel.

Room Tip: The "Studio" rooms are a little way from the main hotel (which is only 12 rooms). If you really want to be alone, pick the studio. However, the main hotel is really very very nice.

This Hotel is surrounded with natural beauty, vine yards, farming, animals. Rooms are very clean and we had a beautiful view to the pool and mountains, you just can feel your stress disappear.
Breakfast was very good, very unusual place, but in a very nice way!

Room Tip: All the rooms are perfect in my opinion!

Staff is friendly and helpful. Food is excellent. Place is quiet and peaceful.
Room is comfy. We were upgraded due to low season. Room in the main building facing the swimming pool and vineyard. We enjoyed our stay very much.

I found here my first experience of rural accommodation. Great experience! Comfortable, good food, land and animals' proximity and a fantastic sunset, makes this hotel a wonderful place.
From May, 1 to 3, 2014

Room Tip: The second floor has a better view.
