    Arouca is an interesting town with great scenery on the doorstep. It is a good base from which to explore the geopark and to do the 516 suspension bridge experience. Local restaurants and bars are very good value and there is a genuine feel about the place that this is the real Portugal.

    Great pleasant town to use as a base for surprising variety of walks or swims or river activities in the area. In this area trails are marked out very well for off-road walks with great views and through lovely hamlets. The town itself also houses a variety of museums, supermarkets, shops, and places to drink and eat local treats.

    I went for the 516 bridge and for the river board walk.

    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.

    The Hotel Rural Quinta de Novais clearly exceeded our expectations. It has a great location, 5-min away (by car) from Arouca's city center, and it is a great value for money. The rooms are great, the area is beautiful and the breakfast had some (and sufficient) great options. At the reception, we were greeted with kindness and with great restaurant suggestions. Definitely an experience to repeat in the future, and for more than 1 night.

    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!

    Very cute, very remote, very serene guest house in a tiny aldeia in the middle of hiking country. Our hosts baked a delicious surprise welcome treat and we enjoyed a quiet rest and recharge. In the morning we hiked to the tunnel and waterfall before heading to the Paiva walkways and Arouca 516. It's about 40 minutes drive to the Paiva walkways, skimming back by Arouca.

    If you want to be surrounded by nature, listen to birds and enjoy from a beautiful view, then here is the right place to stay. The town of Arouca is near by and has a lot to see, besides all what one can experience in the Arouca Geopark ,like the Bridge 516 and Passadiços do Paiva. We enjoyed our stay very much. Thanks also to Mr. Henrique, who gave us very good tips!

    Perfect stay in Arouca. In a short walk, you can reach the city centre and find everything you need like restaurants, supermarkets and other services. The hostess was very kind and showed up earlier to check in when we informed her we'd be sooner than expected. The room was spotless, and super spacious, with a lovely balcony. The shared lounge was also incredible.

    Great location. We walked the Arouca bridge and Paiva walkways which are only 20 minutes drive from the property. Google got us to the property on some narrow windy roads, be prepared! The property has been expertly renovated by the family and is very comfortable. The owners met us on arrival and are both friendly and helpful. Highly recommended .

    The building is clean and nice. The room was spacious and very comfortable. The other rooms such as the kitchen (fully equipped) and living room were decorated very homely. The owner was welcoming and very attentive to our needs! The location is close to the 516 Arouca Bridge and hence, great to start off the Passadiços do Paiva Trailhead. Obrigada!

    Excellent apartment very modern and thoroughly equipped with electrical appliances and furniture. Excellent location right by Arouca downtown with easy access to local business and restaurants. I like TV, but the one at the apartment was not connected to any service. I score this lodging at 9.5 for this reason.

    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.

    Excellent breakfast. Perfect/central location to explore the region, especially Passadiços do Paiva. Very good hotel actually, but rooms could be a bit bigger. My room had a balcony with city/mountain view which was awesome. Very friendly staff. Lots of parking.

    Cozy place with the most amazing 180 degrees views to the Valley of Arouca. The host was superfriendly and available at any time. We used the small kitchen to make our breakfast. We also got maps from the host. That helped a lot.
