If you a visiting the Douro region, you must build in, at least, a couple of nights at Casa da Azenha. Manuel and Anita are charming hosts and we stayed in a beautifully furnished room with ensuite, which also had an entrance leading directly onto the courtyard.

It is so peaceful and relaxing with glorious views over vineyards. There are orange trees so freshly squeezed juice each morning, freshly laid eggs and homemade jams. We had a table to ourselves, as other guests had their own eating areas.

One of the highlights of our 2 week trip in northern Portugal.

This casa is a slice of Eden in Portugal. We were greated by gracious and welcoming hosts who made us feel at home. The room was beautiful; full of well preserved antiques. They also had a well manicured garden and a great pool (though the pool was cold, but refreshing). Every morning we were served a delicious breakfast which included fresh eggs, fresh bread, fruit picked from the orchard, jam made from that fruit, and many other delicious treats. During the day we could walk through their orchard and vineyard and eat fresh apricots and cherries as we walked. They also served us some delicious port wine; made from their grapes. Overall it was an amazing stay, I would recommend it for anyone traveling in Portugal.

We stayed for three nights. Family of four.

The best B&B we have ever experienced! From the moment we arrived at Casa da Azenha, it was one experience after another. We drove up, rang the bell and the gates opened so that we could drive in. We were welcomed by Manuel and Anita and shephered into the charming inn. Anita quickly welcomed us with homemade lemonade and Manuel took us through a tour of the inn. The building has been in his family for over 300 years and Magellen once lived there! The main building has three guest rooms - two have two twin beds; the third has a queen bed all en suite; there are two cottages which can accommodate families and a separate building with a lovely suite (two bedrooms plus a day bed in the living room), including a small kitchenette. The property sits on 14 hectares of vineyards from which Manuel and Anita harvest their own port wine (which they will share with you in the evening; and you can purchase bottles to take with you). The grounds are magnificent -- fruit trees (from which you can pick oranges to enjoy), a lovely swimming pool. A perfect place to get away and totally relax --peaceful and serene. Our hosts could not have been more accommodating - sharing their family history, giving us great recommendations for restaurants and local touring. If you are traveling here from Porto, don't miss the opportunity to take N222 through the mountains with stunning views of the vineyards (it is about a 4 hour drive with switchbacks galore!) -- so worth the time!

If you're seeing Portugal, do not miss the gorgeous Douro River inland from Oporto and then don't miss staying with Manuel and Anita at Casa da Azenha. There is a reason why this place is straight-5's from all reviewers.

From the moment we arrived we were embraced by the warm welcome both Manuel and Anita gave my wife and me and offered tea and freshly baked cake. This small estate has been in Manuel's mother's family for 300 years and what a cool building it is, right down to the family chapel. They have made numerous, very sensitive (and I would say costly), upgrades and repairs to the old building recently (from the patio doors to the solid room and bathroom doors to the towel warmers) while still preserving the historic integrity of the house. These are people who love and take pride in their home. We really felt we were visiting friends!

We stayed in the Blue Room and can recommend it highly. For starters, it was nice to sleep in a double bed again, particularly such an old, pretty one. Great linens and lovely antiques throughout. The double door opened onto a stone patio with a fountain, just above the very extensive gardens. Ah, the gardens. They were the highlight for me and it was such fun to walk through them with Anita and discuss what's what with the plants. There even is a small river running through the property. Within the gardens is a lovely pool. The property is surrounded by hills of vineyards.

Breakfasts were wonderful with fresh fruits, juices from their own orange trees (at least in late May), eggs and pastries fresh from the town bakery.

Two quick notes. While this property technically is in Lamego, it is much, much closer (like five minutes) to Regua just across the river. That's too bad if you were thinking you were just outside Lamego (which is maybe 15-20 minutes) and great if you want to cross the Douro and drive up through Pinao into the vineyards. Second, do be certain you get precise directions from Manuel. You would not happen upon this place by accident and his directions are perfect.

The inn keepers, Manuel & Anita, are the most gracious hosts one could hope to find. Their home is like your own, best described as a 300-year old museum with all the modern conveniences. Immaculate and beautiful. It's orange tree, and rose filled garden is without equal. We will come back, again and again.

Room Tip: The family apartment(s) can be chosen to be modern or classic Portugal. Beautiful. The friendly brown Lab retriever will wear you out, retrieving (and eating) the oranges you throw.
