Quiet hotel with just 11 rooms on a working wine farm (quinta). Idyllic setting and scenery on the quite steep hills of Douro. Although the hotel may seem quite near the village Pinhao, the drive along the winding roads takes some 30 minutes. So if nihgtlife is your thing, this is not your best option.
Nice ambience ("old decadent charm") - it felt like being in an Agatha Christie novel, and you were expecting to see Hercule Poirot around the corner.
Cosy is the best word to describe the place. Room and common areas were nice. Breakfast was OK, somewhat limited selection to choose from. Dinner and lunch was good - country kitchen.More
