"Casas do Rio" is a small hotel with a big heart. We only have 6 rooms each carefully furnished to strike a balance between antique elegance and modern comfort. Come admire our centuries old but meticusly renovated home. Relax by the pool or the jacuzzi while gazing at ancient olive trees and listening to the birds.
I am a citizen of the world, born in Colombia, made in the USA (Spent over 35 years in the USA) and transplanted to Portugal. After traveling around the world for work and leisure, I decided to make Portugal my new home because of its people, beauty and location. I love to meet my guest and guide them in any possible way and learn from each of them. I hope to see you soon.
We are half way between Barcelos and Ponte de Lima in a tiny town called Cossourado. A lot of people stay with us because we are a convenient stop for pelgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela and other people stay with us because we are an extremely convenient base to explore northern Portugal.
