All excellent: great views, great staff, fantastic food!
Mooi ruim opgezet hotel. In etages tegen de berghelling gebouw. Erg gastvrij personeel. Goede keuken. Mooie ruime kamers met uitermate schitterend uitzicht over de Dourovallei. Tip: alle kamers op niveau 2 hebben 100 % privacy, direct vrij uitzicht. Ook mooie uitzichten vanuit het zwembad. Een echt relaxhotel met prima service. Enig minpuntje is dat het hotel slecht via één tijdrovende kronkelige bergweg bereikbaar is.
Hotel design, staff, facilities, and brilliantly relaxed atmosphere. Fairly remote. Difficult if you don't have a car. The walk from the closest train station (Aregos) is 20 mins up a very steep hill. Not nice in the plus 30 degree heat. Though the hotel said they'd send a car if I'd have called. Still, would be worth noting somewhere prior to arriving. Wouldn't put me off going again though!
the rooms have an amazing view over the river
The luxe facilities and view is amazing over the douro. True design and spa hotel with very friendly and capable staff. Missing a gym for workout
Room balcony with a wonderful river view. Hotel staff is kind and helpful. Spa & sauna were clean. It was difficult to find the hotel because all sign on road show only words "Hotel". We didn't know if these signs meant this hotel or not until arrival. We booked a table for dinner when we checked in however it didn't make.
Great setting, cool design, helpfull staff A gym/exercise room at the hotel would be good.
This place is amazing. It's a 'Quinta' so a Portuguese wine estate. It's set in the heart of the Douro valley in a stunning location. Although this estate does not produce wine, the views from the Estate are amazing and it's a very quiet and comfortable place to stay. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. I had dinner there and the food was amazing. Typical Portuguese food with traditional music playing in the background and of course porte wine. Had a very pleasant stay and would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for accommodation.
Isabel & Henrique were kind, friendly & most obliging hosts at this charming and well appointed quinta close to Mesão Frio. Thye breakfast table could have benefitted from a little more variety & choice!
Very quiet environment in a lovely 18th century house. Most frendly owners who speak English (and Frensh). A "must" if you want to relax. Rooms are cool at night. A little bit hard to find when you arrive at te first time, but people in the villages arround are most frendly to help. Housekeeping is doing everything to please you, the environment is very clean.
The hospitality and friendliness No
Staying with Isobel and Eric was a unique experience. Our evening meal 'en famile' was a delight with four languages used. The site has fabulous views. The ancient buildings, decor and furnishings provide an unusual and delightful experience. This is is not your average hotel! There is nothing we didn't like, but here are some tips. You need a sat nav to find it - or good portuguese - it is remote.The Tourismo sign is the only clue. Ring in advance to book for your first evening meal. We didn't know that, but Isobel directed us to the local village restaurant here we had a good, cheap meal with the locals. Isobel doesn't take credit cards.
Very quiet location. Room was very hot. In August that is a big issue! Breakfast very very poor.
We spent two wonderful nights in Quinta do Ervedal in early october. The house and its surroundings are breathtaking and beautiful! The scenery is really something to remember. A nice pool, the comfortable bedroom, friendly staff and delicious food - all was there. You can easily take walks to the nature or maybe trips further up to the Douro valley. Or perhaps you just relax, read a book and enjoy the sunshine on the front yard. So thank you Isabel and Henrique for all your hospitality. We will definitely recommend your quinta to anyone who is interested!
The setting of the hotel Difficult to find, be prepared when you go there and do not believe only your navigation system
The welcoming feeling by the hoster Isabel and the setting of the whole Quinta I loved every single bit. Shame that I couldn't be on a holliday
Breakfast was good. The pool looked dirty and the room wasn't comfortable.
The location was superb but without the help of a local who we followed by car it would have been VERY dificult to find. This is more like staying in a private house rather than a hotel. We had dinner on three evenings and it was excellent. Just excellent produce and traditional/simple Portugese cuisine (good portions) with wine from the estate which just kept flowing ! Cost 30 euros a head. The owners were charming and spoke pretty good English, but the star of the show was the cook/maid/ you name it, who spoke no English but was simply delightful and could not have done more to make our stay there very memorable. It is very informal and relaxed, the pool was great the views superb and would be happy to go again and again and yes again !! The lack of really clear directions for say the last say five miles from all directions.
