I went for the 516 bridge and for the river board walk. Both met my expectations. However, both the bridge and the board walk are very difficult to find, specially the bridge. I understand that it is protected landscape and they cannot simply build a new road. But at least they could improve the signs on the roads - I found the bridge by mere chance and luck and almost missed the assigned time scheduling - and it is very stressful and frustrating to look for the entrance to those two things. I know this is a common problem on this country (lack of proper signs on the roads seems to be a cultural point of honor, just like cod fish dishes), but enough is enough. The stress and frustration of looking for the places can easily ruin the experience and no one wants that. GPS may not be as helpful as one might think on non-urban environment. New tourists: be advised for this and allocate enough time in your timetable for searching and arrival for this two attractions.
Crossing the 516 Arouca bridge is a must if you don't have a fear of heights! Be warned that there is a 1+km steep downhill walk from the parking lot to the start of the bridge at the Alvarenga entry. Also, if you take the Paiva Walkways after crossing the bridge, the toilets are 4.4 km in, so I suggest that the park put in toilets at the end of the bridge before the walkways. The posta de vitela at Assembleia restaurant is of high quality. Vegetarian options are so-so, as is true in most restaurants in Portugal.
I was mostly in between nature. As long as it's kept like this and the aesthetic of the place is maintained ... all is great! :) Fortunately, because of this, I didn't see many modern houses, which was great!!! :))
Absolutely fantastic place, everything is gorgeous, it’s so relaxing and watching the animals on the balcony with my breakfast was amazing. We were so lucky to have found this little gem. Tony was an amazing host, so friendly, informative and helpful. He really made our stay perfect. We can’t wait to come back. Really couldn’t recommend enough. Thank you ☺️ Oh and I forgot to add just how wonderful it was to eat fresh warm bread that was delivered to our penthouse for breakfast. We wished we had booked more nights here.
Once the gate opens, visitors are treated to the surprise of a gorgeous home in a beautiful setting. It is obvious that the owners take pride in the place and enjoy offering it to others. We were looking for a quaint stone cottage in a little village. This one fit the bill! And the peaceful garden area was an extra treat!
Arouca is only small but the surrounding Geopark is very beautiful and offers visitors an activity packed couple of days. Curently Europe´s highest suspension bridge is being built in the park. Was a great family holiday.
The Quinta de Anterronde is a beautifully restored stone building in a lovely setting. Our room was very comfortable and spotless. We chose to stay here as it was close to the Paiva Trail. The farm has various fruits growing on the property as well as beautiful flowers. The figs and kiwis were our favorites. Breakfast was provided each morning and we had 2 great dinners in the town of Arouca. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Quinta de anterronde.

Everything perfect from first contact to when we left. Ana was so nice, we got a warm welcome with a lot of extra items, even a new baked cake!! The studio was beautiful with everything so well decorated and equipped. Nice surroundings and in walking distance to Arouca, where we had dinner twice. We força lot of suggestions about what to do in the area. Thanks for your hospitality!
Whole stunning house to ourselves. Beautiful grounds with pool and hammock. Very clean, good showers, comfy beds, kitchen with lots of cooking utensils. Easy parking, friendly welcome, cosy wood burner in lounge. Location: perfect for Arouca bridge and excellent restaurants nearby. Mist across mountains in the morning, fresh air and tranquility. Perfect for summer or winter.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa da Cavada. The house is in a stunning location over looking the Paiva river valley below. Our kids enjoyed exploring the interesting garden. The house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. If we are ever back in Espiunca or Arouca we will definitely look to stay here again.
Good location close to Arouca. Quiet with very little traffic noise. Well equipped kitchen with a good-sized refrigerator. Retro decoration with old books, rotary phone and 60’s vintage microscope; the internet was fast and reliable. Swimming pool and the host gave us some fresh eggs from her hen house.
The host was very kind and helpful. The apartment was really big and provided everything we could ever need during a stay. It really felt like a family home and Arouca is perfectly located, very close to the geopark and brand new bridge 516. Wonderful surprise, I highly recommend this place!
We were here again and again we were very pleased. Very friendly service of the owners in a friendly style caused that the atmosphere of the place was a great asset of the place besides its location near Passadico to Paiva and Arouca Geopark. We will definitely be back next year.
The house is near to the center - you can walk -, is very comfortable, the kitchen is very well equipped, has a good front porch where you can seat and enjoy a meal or just a drink, the host (Mané) is very Kind :). If I return to Arouca again I kwow where to stay :)!!
Staff - The staff was very pleasant and available to help. We had an issue with the AC and they immediately sent someone to help us and the problem was solved. They were also very helpful regarding our questions about where to go in Arouca.
Impeccable facilities. Room with balcony. Owner was very friendly and showed us the best route to the house (about 12m away from Arouca)
Beautifully landscaped and maintained, close to the center of Arouca, but quiet and private. The owners are friendly and helpful.
Nice location, perfect if you’re going to the “Passadiços do Paiva” and “Arouca 516” suspension bridge.
We were a group of 11 adults and we booked all 5 rooms. We all were comfortable with plenty of space to relax independently and together. We loved the very long table in the downstairs common room. We liked having the small inflatable pool to cool off in the heat. The house is located close to the Arouca bridge. We felt like it was our private home and grounds for the weekend.
The hostes are kind and wonderful people you can see and feel it in all, the way the place looks, the service and the way the are with their 400 animals here in the farm. We had and excellent time here and definitely recommend and will be back. Thank you George, Lou and Tony
