Casa dos Barros has different types of rooms, each one with its own decoration, offering you the comfort and cosy feeling of a home family with the services of a small hotel. The recently restored new house was built all around the place where wine used to be done, "the lagares" in the XVIII century. Upstairs there are five bright and sunny bedrooms including two large double bedrooms with views over the lovely secret garden and three smaller bedrooms with big Windows and a beautiful view on the house which was the place of birth of the navigator Magellan. Downstairs there is a comfortable sitting room with a big fireplace for cosy winter evenings. Casa dos Barros has also an apartment that provides the option of relaxing, on your own coach in your private living room cooking in a small kitchen or resting on the suite's outsider terrace which overlooks the garden and has its own private entrance. There is also a large bedroom in the owner's house, just across the garden, the perfect place to feel part of the house. Decorated with period furniture it sends you to the XVIII century with the comfort of the XXI's. Casa dos Barros has always been known by its gardens which are unusual in this region and we are proud of taking care of all these spaces, ourselves. We have our "Secret Garden" surrounded by the house which is the perfect place to sit down reading, drawing or just having a good conversation with a glass of wine, a cup of tea or anything you want to have. In the other garden around the pool we have a big open space surrounded by vineyards which produce our own wine, the place to be catching up our beautiful Portuguese sun. All the outside spaces have bar service and little snacks are served. All rooms with Air conditioned, Private bathrooms, Satellite TV, Tea and Coffe making facilities and complimentary Wi-Fi Internet. Room rates include Continental Breakfast which is served daily from 8:00 a.m. till 10:00 a.m.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

You ring on arrival as the door is locked. No welcome staff. The advertised restaurant wasn’t open No duvet cover on bed. Just a quilt & a sheet. No water or glasses in the room. I was so thirsty at night- I called the telephone numbers given but nobody answered so I went for a wander about 11pm but as expected nobody was around to help Shower in the morning was COLD - no hot water. Other guests said it had been the same the day before + they were glad to be moving on . The towels were thin + cheap Breakfast was shocking! The worst we’ve ever had anywhere. The orange Joyce was emotion- the scrambled egg cold and rubbery. And worst of all - nobody seemed to even care that we had visited - no ‘how was your stay? Or ‘where are are you from?’ Or ‘ thankyou for visiting’ we will definitely not be back

We visited Casa dos Barros as part of a three stop wine and port tour from Porto. This place was number 2 in our experience - we were booked in to have lunch and a tasting of the port from their barrels. The second part of the experience, ie the port tasting was good. The expert was very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to and the port was delicious. The main issue was with the lunch and service, however; and that responsibility lay with the manager, August. He was a total egotist, arguably had sampled a little too much of the wine he was serving. There was no welcome on our arrival - he ushered us to some hastily prepared tables and didn’t wait for us to be seated before leaving us. The tables could so easily have been set to accommodate the different groups in our party, but he just shrugged and left one guy from another party with our nine - we introduced ourselves obviously and got on, but it was an extremely ungracious introduction to the meal and the hotel. When he returned several minutes later with the wine he made no attempt to make us feel comfortable, instead showing off by pouring two glasses of wine simultaneously with a bottle in each hand. It was all about him. He sloshed wine on the table twice in doing this, didn’t apologise or refill the glasses he had left short measured as a result. Things continued in an equally woeful vein: starters were already on the plate: a limp salad, undressed, thrown on the plate, a few pieces of bread - 2 small baskets between ten people. The soup was very nice, but having sat there for several minutes before we’d arrived and waited for August’s wine show, it was lukewarm at best. Mains were again, tepid, portion sizes wildly different and meagre. Pudding was a stale piece of chocolate cake with no crème or the like. We were given 2 bottles of wine between ten for the whole group. Our guide later told us we should have been offered more, but this didn’t happen. One of our group was too young to drink alcohol and asked for a coke. August said “I think Coke is disgusting” - all about him again. He made a token visit to the table before dessert as he sailed past - “I assume everything is terrible” he said flippantly and without a trace of irony. He didn’t ask us about our experience or even come over to say farewell. The waiting staff were sweet, but under such appalling leadership how could they be expected to deliver a decent level of service. It really was on the lowest rung of the ladder. August flitted around other tables, at one point lolling over someone - friend, guest, colleague- who knows? It was so unprofessional. So August is certainly a weak link there. Even our tour guide agreed that he is an egotist and that affects the guests’ experience. On another level, the lunch provided there is light, with the quality rather questionable. With a better manager the portion sizes, presentation and service could be improved really easily. However, I think anyone on such a tour ought to be warned to eat a really good breakfast before visiting, so as to avoid disappointment - we all left unsated and this made us feel that we hadn’t had value for money. For what we paid, similar potions delivered well would have been ok if we had been warned it was a light lunch. Without having been offered a second helping and no opportunity to buy anything more it was unsatisfactory overall and that is why this place gets two stars: one for the lovely setting and one for the port talk, both of which were super. In contrast we then visited Casa Quinta dos Castel Ares- the 23 year old, sober guide was incredible: knowledgeable, polite, friendly - he spotted our non drinker and immediately and gave him some chocolate; there was gluten free bread for our celiac to enjoy with the olive oil sample and a welcoming, professional and charming experience. August - take note. Casa dos Barros, this needs attention.

This is a tourist factory. The manager, Augusto, is rude to staff and guests. The food is very poor quality with cheap ingredients, no flavor and zero presentation. The staff basically throw your plate in front of you. The tour group guests are given no choice of starter nor dessert. Only two options for the main course are offered with no consideration for allergies. The "wine tasting" is just one lady that, as she pours your wine, gives a two sentence explanation of the wine and then walks away. The toilets are dirty and unisex. Run, don't walk the other direction! There are many other lovely, local restaurants.

I hope you don’t get to see Augusto as he must be the worst host there is! He’s the rudest person I’ve ever met. On top of that, the food was awful (take a look at the picture). This was our main course and we had to ask for another portion…and you don’t get to choose your food, it was a terrible experience as they were “throwing” low quality, gross and cold food at us…

The website of Casa dos Barros Winery Lodge promises more than it delivers for guests staying at the hotel. On arrival we could not get into the hotel with the code they sent us as the code had changed but this was not communicated to us. Several guests had this problem. We stayed in the ground floor suite for the first 2 nights which was really cold and musty. Could not connect to the Wi-Fi router in the room as the code provided was incorrect and the staff were unable to help. We moved to a smaller double bedroom on the 3rd night but there was a single duvet for the double bed! The spring mattress was old and uncomfortable. The village clock chimed every quarter hour throughout the day and night and could be heard from the bedrooms. Breakfast was a poor, minimalist, buffet spread with coffee from a dispensing thermos flask. The website shows several photos of the pool with sun lounges overlooking the vineyard. In reality, the pool actually could not be used because several lunch tables were set up around the pool for wine tasting parties of which there were several during the day and every day. Additionally, the sun lounges were removed presumably to discourage staying guests to use the pool because of the wine tasting groups. The owner and the manager of this hotel clearly has no interest in staying guests. It was so disappointing that we could not wait to leave!

Amazing port wine tour in rustic surroundings. It was a great experience to have mysteries of port explained by a producer and taste representative selection of wines. Also to see the cellar and old equipment used in the past for Port production. And lunch served outside with views of the vineyard was another great experience: traditional Portuguese dishes complemented by local wine!

This place is one of the most beautiful places and a must visit to anyone visiting Douro Valley. From the tranquil views and amazing historic house, to perfect wine and port cellar, the best home cooked food and hosting that deserves more stars than possible to give ;) Augusto adds personal touch to the visit, great character and loads of laughter all through out. Muito Obrigado; Cant wait to be back there and We Will Be back there for sure!!!!! Highly recommend this stunner retreat!!!!!!!!!

Our tour, through CMTours, had us stopping at Casa dos Barros, a part of the Vintage Theory Hotel system, for lunch. The lunch started with carrot soup, with a choice of sea bass with rice or pork and finishing with cheesecake. We then had a tour and sampling of their products. I enjoyed the lunch.
