This hotel is in a beautifully renovated quinta with stunning views across the hills and vineyards. The public rooms are grand and impressive. Our bedroom was huge, comfortable, well furnished, and airy with a separate study area and large bathroom. It's run by Maria who creates a friendly country house party atmosphere. Breakfasts are first class (delicious scrambled eggs) and...

This villa is well worth a weekend. Simply gorgeous setting among the vineyards. Classic Portuguese main building for dinner, breakfast relaxing, and out buildings with lovely rooms with views of the property. Maria, the hostess, couldn't have been more welcoming. She also convinced us to do a boat trip on the Douro with a picnic lunch. Absolutely perfect! We'll go...

This Hotel is a hidden paradise. The long approach, downhill through vines and olive trees, only hints at the magnificent house in waiting. The owner, Maria, who speaks several languages, welcomed us with hugs and kisses ( beijinhos) like old friends. "Anthony,Linda come in. Will you have some homemade lemonade?" After a brief, potted and fascinating history of the house...

This hotel is just fantastic, and incredibly cheap for what it offers! The room was actually a huge suite, the view great, the pool just ok, breakfast very good. It feels like living in your own castle, and for dinner (not cheap but certainly worth it) we had our own dining room, with afterwards port in one of the sitting...

We had our wedding at Hotel Rural last July - we had the most incredible time. We had around 100 guests who travelled mostly from England - Maria, Jorge and her fantastic team ensured that only good times could be had. From the food to the grounds, rooms and ambience we could not have asked for more. During the planning...

Myself, my partner and our friend stayed here for two nights over New Year. It's about 5 minutes drive outside Lamego. Don't be put off by the drive from Lamego - you'll pass by some concrete works. But after this you arrive at the entrance and from then on it's magical! The driveway meanders through vineyards before revealing the wonderful...

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time here for two nights. We had a room facing the garden and the view was lovely.
