This might be a great if you are you there in the midst of summer, but this May we visited this B& B and that it was extremely remote and without a source of heat except for small wood burning stoves that would not last more than a hour or two before having to reload. Every thing was a car... More

Nice clean room, exceptional welcome, gorgeous views peaceful at times when the beach is quiet down below and the barking dog in the distance stops. Be aware it's 52 steps down to the river beach and 52 up again. Access to your room is not always easy as if the main house was locked you had to walk the 52... More

Sandra told us that we were her first American visitors. Well, other Americans, you must be number two or three. Arganil is a great, central location for exploring the area and Casa do Rio is as good as it gets as a home base. Be sure to ask how to get to the restaurant across the river. It's a pleasant...

Astonishing contemporary decorated rooms and great ideas such as a welcome drink, a very reasonable priced wine list with wines from the region selected by the foodie owners, a self-catered breakfast with a fresh bread basket in the morning, …....

I was on a solo bike tour of Northern Spain and Portugal and stayed in early Spring this year. The location of this house is beautifully secluded in a pine forest and felt like the perfect place just to get away from it all. There is a river right next to the house where you can swim and acres of... More

Stayed in 'the house on the hill' for three days last summer. For me, this is one of the most beautiful places in Portugal. Close to Coimbra and Bucaco. The casa is really comfortable. Very good beds and fully equiped apartments with big terraces. I really enjoyed the company of our hosts, Sandra and Lex, as well. Laid-back people with... More
