During our five weeks in Spain and Portugal this amazing quinta was by far the highlight of our hotel experiences on this or any other trip The building itself is furnished with such style and elegance we felt we were staying in a castle. The really fun thing is that many of the decorative items in the lovely rooms are actually for sale. It was like having a totally private, unhurried shopping experience! The English-speaking staff were extremely attentive, welcoming and helpful. We were encouraged to walk around the extensive vineyards and orchards and pick all the fruit we wanted. I cannot say enough good things about this amazing destination. It was totally awesome...we didn't want to leave, and are already talking about returning.
We enjoyed an unbelievable warm atmoshere in an environmet that was full of history. The decoration of the rooms and the whole area gives a strong flavor of Portugese history which we really appreciated. The dinner we had was a perfect example to learn about traditional cusine of this region - we will come back - quite soon - to stay a bit longer and relax.
The hotel is very beautiful designed and decorated, however do not let beauty mislead you. The clerk tried to be very helpful and to compensate us for all the trouble the hotel caused.
When we were there - they had 2 weddings in halls situated next to the guest rooms. They allowed loud music to play until after midnight! We were there with 2 small children and it was horrible. It seems that they just do not care about their guests. the room was very smelly (smell like cat pee) and there was a showercup hang on the door).the room have a window and a door that opened to the outdoor dining room - so you couldn't open them as you had no privacy - and that was a major problem as there was no airconditioner in the room!!! I would not recommened this place to anyone.
We liked the countryside location yet convenient for Lamego and motorway access to the Douro valley. The propriertor herself gave us tips on what to see in various places. Our room was a thoughtful convertion of an outbuilding and gave us a sitting area as well as bedroom space on a mezzanine floor.
Swimming pool about 100 metres walk from main house. Guests should be aware that the evening meal is 37.5 euros. It is reasonable value for money for a gourmet meal in a special location but the full meal is the only option offered.
