Charming villa in beautiful location
The hotel is situated in a spectacular spot with breathtaking views of the Douro Valley. Internally the property is quirky and has it’s own style with the family’s footprint evident throughout. It’s definitely worth a stay, with the added benefit of friendly staff. Two points to note, the hotel only accepts cash, nearest ATM about 20 minutes drive, and there isn’t, a Restaurent attached, although you can order from a limited room service menu until about about 7.30 p.m. But worth the effort to visit.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We had a very spacious room on the main floor overlooking the Douro River. The view from our room and terrace was breathtaking. Breakfast was excellent and parking on the street above the Casa very safe and easy. It is a 15 minute walk to Mesão Frio where there were a few decent restaurants. We stayed for 2 nights and hook the train from Rede to Pinhão where they have boat tours and the Symington Estates winery. The place itself feels like a small castle. Staff made a fire for us, put on background music. All round great experience.
