The location beside this peaceful river (Sabor) is great. It is probably the hotel with the best style and taste in town. A beautiful restoration of an old mill. Staff is deliciously nice and attentive, even in the cautious preparation of your espresso. Rooms have good heating and excellent sanitary installations. I'll go back there if I ever come back...

This B&B is really nice. The shared kitchen, living room and garden were perfect for us as we have a baby with us that needed to play and rest. Rooms are comfortable, breakfast is excellent and staff is very friendly and helpful. Internet connection in the shared space works fine. Parking is available, but it's easier to park just near...

Many people have found this B & B hard to find, we did not, we set the SATNAV to Av of Almonds (in portuguese), carried on down the road under the motor way and it was there, alternatively go to the Tourist office, It's well worth the effort. A very nice modern conversion of an old mill combined with an... More

We stayed here on our first night during a two-week trip to Portugal. Finding the Moinho (mill) was a bit difficult - I would recommend that the owners put some better signs,especially since the last part of the road is a dirt road that doesn't look like it really goes anywhere. But once there, it is a beautiful spot; the... More

Fantastic house to rest near a river with a bridge secular. Near the city by car. Good to be with family or group of friends because the house has good conditions for large groups, very well equipped. Very nice breakfast with local products.
