    Some people say it’s old-fashioned. We do not agree. It’s stylish in an old-fashioned way. A good place to stay!

    Very friendly and helpful owners. Good location if you are by car. Breakfast meets all the standards. No airco in the rooms, but we did not miss it. We have had a good night sleep.

    We wish we could stay longer. It was definitely the best villa we had ever stayed at. The hosts are very nice, they recommended us the places to visit and to have dinner at. The interior is very beautiful. We took so many pictures. Hope we will be able to make it to villa Duparchy again.

    The house is showing its age and facilities are worn. Lack of air-conditioning means sleeping with the windows open and is probably uncomfortable during the summer.

    This is a lovely old villa situated on forested land with lovely hosts. The location is minutes from Luso and the Bussaco forest preserve and it is very pleasant to "hang out" by the pool. Excellent value for money.

    The property is secluded and walking to anywhere is difficult because of the hilly terrain.

    We enjoyed the serenity of the property. Our hosts were very accommodating. The village was quaint and friendly with lovely restaurants and tapas bars.

    Excellent place to rest, full of history (the house is more than 100 years old... in the good way), very quiet and the size of the rooms and cosiness were absolutely surprisingly. The couple that runs the place makes you feel at home and that is priceless. And the beds are so comfy!

    The bathroom was really spacious but a walk-in modern shower would have been better for us than a bath with shower head.

    The bed was comfy; the breakfast was really delicious but what was really special was the old world charm of the villa and the attention to detail by the staff.

The swimming pool was an added bonus. The breakfast was very fresh, and the selection of home made preserves were delightful. Our second visit and hopefully not the last.

    The owners of this beautiful villa were very polite, attentive and helpful, providing us with useful information of the surroundings and the places of interest! The villa is situated in a big beautiful garden and has a nice pool with amazingly warm water! The room was very spacious with a fireplace and beautiful old furniture. The bed linen and the towels were impeccably white. And the bathroom was amazing - enormous, very clean, with a window, overlooking the garden and the nearby Bussaco National Forest! The breakfast was very good. We really spent wonderful time!
