This is a wonderful hotel....beautifully designed and a great concept. We have stayed here twice and can not recommend it highly enough. The owners Rui and Rita are great "hosts" and the staff are very friendly. The Cooking Lesson option should not be missed. The rooms all have individually created décor and are spacious and welcoming. The Banho d'Aire Baths...

This hotel is a gem. The staff are delightful, the rooms are unusual and well thought out, each one being different and the food is very good. We had a cooking lesson which was great fun- even if I was rather longing for some veg or salad at the end of our stay! It isn't a typical hotel in any...

The hotel itself is very nice, great effort has been...

After 2 days heat in the Douro valley, the cooler climate of the surrounding was very much welcome. Located at the border of a national park, this b&b offers a quietness in a very stylish setting! Great swimming pool surrounded by old olive trees, utmost friendly staff, spacious and well decorated rooms and a good breakfast in the morning. Dinner...

The hotel is located in the countryside near a small village. The hotel has exciting décor and serves a varied breakfast. The hotel has a beautiful outdoor area with pool and sun loungers. The pool is located so one feels that in the middle of the nature. The location is perfect to see the nearby caves and several of portugal...

The room was not really 100% to our liking, with a view on the street/parking and open bathroom. We only stayed for 1 night, so couldn't enjoy all the activities, but we followed the cooking class, which we liked. We also enjoyed the pool while having a drink from the honesty bar. Overall, there was a very quiet atmosphere and...

It's a really nice hotel in the mountains. The food is excellent and the cooking class is very fun. It is hard to arrange other activities and everything must be arranged 24-48 hours in advance . There are omelettes made to order but all other breakfast foods are cold buffet. We didn't do the other activities and used it as...

I loved my experience in the cooking and nature! The hotel interior design is a big surprise even in the little details. The decoration is creative, simple and unique. The staff is very proactive and friendly, helping you in all that you need during your visit. But what I loved the most was the programs that you can do, we...
