Simply the best that I have ever seen in this price category. Extremelly good location: you are in a heart of Northern Portugal, good connection to Porto (30-40 min by car), Gimaraesh and Braga. We lived in a garden, 3-4 traditional restaurants around, nice breakfast, individual attitude for each customer. I strongly recomend this place for those who want to come in touch with traditional Portugal countryside, good food, vine production culture and just have a rest far from crowded cities.
The location was great, nothing but vineyards and gardens around and a great view! The hotel is based in a renovated old stonehouse, really nice design with natural stone and wood. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Good breakfast as well!
The only thing was that it was difficult to find as no signs around and the navigation system didn't find it either, so don't make the same mistake as us to not read the instructions on how to get there before you set off.
The accommodation built up in stone were lovely, in a beautiful setting, surrounded by nature, great for relaxing
Character of traditional buildings well converted to hotel accomodation.
Slightly difficult to find!
