    Our room was large, comfortable and had amazing views over olive trees and vines. The hospitality was exceptional with all kinds of 'treats' like port and home made cake, offered everytime we returned to the main house. Breakfasts were a a feast...

Property information

The rural accommodation offer consists of 4 houses from the 17th/18th century, a mini Hotel - Casa Manuel Padeiro that has 4 bedrooms and 3 independent houses: T3 - Casa do Avô do Soito, T2 - Casa do Soqueiro or T1 - Casa do Penedo , these houses also include a living room and kitchen equipped for the preparation and consumption of meals. It is a unique opportunity to enjoy a real slice of Portuguese life and culture. It is like a return to the past, on a visit to our family, our grandparents, with a warm welcome, incarnation of the recognized and praised Portuguese hospitality. The granite houses and traditional architecture are "a kind of museum", allowing for a peaceful and relaxing stay experience. It is a special property, for its history, for its uniqueness. Two of the houses, out of the 4 that make up the property, already existed in 1640, the year of Portugal´s reconquest of independence, because according to a historian born in the village, the Count of Armamar, a Portuguese nobleman who sided with the Spaniards, took refuge there. A distinctive gate, with a beautiful cross and 2 side pyramids, bearing the date 1745 on the lintel, is one of the entrances to the main house. It is the only tourism in the Douro valley, whose accommodation takes place in typical village houses, with traditional architecture and local materials, granite and wood.
