Slightly disappointed. Location not great. 15 min drive to an ok restaurant.
Not in a great location. Not a great breakfast. 15 min drive to nearest restaurant. No food in hotel (other than breakfast).
Nice property. Spacious rooms.

Very relaxing! And great view!
It would be nice to have lunch/dinner available at or near the property (walking distance)
The staff, view and facilities. And the boat tour along river Douro and river Paiva

It would have been nice if they/you had advised potential guests that there are absolutely no dining facilities, but that there are good communal cooking facilities and small supermarket in the nearby village. Very few restaurants in or close to the village.
An excellent, sensitive conversion of a dilapidated old stone building.

Views are great!
It is a little bit difficult to find the place
Modern design, and the views.

They do not provide dinner in place and the closest restaurants are at 15 minutes drive. As we did not feel to leave the hotel for dinner, they kindly provided us with some of the bread, jams and fruits they had stored for breakfast, but it would be nice if there was something more that we could have eaten as an improvised dinner.
The staff is super friendly and attentive, the facilities are modern and comfortable, we particularly enjoyed the jacuzzi, the sauna and the fireplace in the common living room. The hotel is surrounded by a forest and the rooms have a view over the river. It was amazing to wake up and see the river covered in a light mist through the large window of the room.

Perfect destination to lay back, relax and enjoy the beautiful Douro valley
There is only breakfast available in the hotel. For lunch and dinner, you always have to drive between 10 and 15 minutes minimum to Castelo de Paiva or 30 minutes to Cinfaes. Other than that, the location suited perfectly our needs.
The Douro Green is the perfect destination if you want a comfortable and slowed down stay in the Douro valley with perfect river view. The place is a former agricultural house which has been renovated and opened in 2015. There is a lot of light thanks to the floor depth windows. All windows face the river front. The rooms are big enough for two people and the bathroom is even bigger than average. Also here, you have floor depth windows and a perfect view on the river! The rooms are really outstanding! The hotel has only 5 rooms which adds to the familiar atmosphere of the place. The staff, especially Andreia who is the soul of the house, is very friendly. The breakfast is rather simple but good. You have a pool and gym room incl. sauna. The way to the house is quite adventurous but if you made it, you'll have some really relaxed days in a oasis! The location is also quite good, it is not too far from Porto and in 1.5 hrs you reach Peso da Régua and in 2 hrs you reach Pinhao.

Great stay on the Douro valley
Breakfast is served in a large table for every guests, it's kind of awkward ...
Property view and location is very good.

We had one night noisy neighbors and realized that the noise insulation with their room was quiet poor. Internet slow in the bedroom.
Very friendly staff, very quiet in the middle of the nature. Limited amount of bedrooms. Very clean.

The road towards the place is challenging! Swimming pool to cold, better to cover it by night
Amazing location, peaceful and quiet next to the Douro! You’re free to use everything that’s there, kitchen, fitness, sauna, ... 24/7

Realaxing and beautiful
There needed to be more available activities, but this may be due to the time of year.
The staff were wonderful especially Andrea she looked after our every need, it was like home from home.

Wifi breaks down a lot. Breakfast could have more variety
Excellent property with a fabulous location (Just try not to panic with the road down to the property. It can be intimidating the first time but it's really worth it!). The house is just beautiful and the Douro river views are breathtaking. The pool is also really nice. Staff is super friendly and helpful. We really felt welcome here.

“Very nice new place on a great peaceful location, nice get away for a short stay !”
The breakfast could have been better for the price you pay, but still good, we have been travelling through Portugal for 2 weeks so we can compare, a bit more attention to the table setting and the food they offer (e.g the jam was all from super market jars) but overall a great place to stay !
The overall experience is absolutely great, we were welcomed by the very friendly hosts and got a tour around the whole property which is only 2 years old so all very clean and very spacious. The swimming pool is great, the property has a very modern touch, very nice furniture and lighting in the whole place. We could also use the Jacuzzi inside and there is also the possibility to use the kitchen and barbecue. The road to the property is very steep so only for self-confident drivers :) The location is right next to the Douro river , it is a place where you need to stay and relax and enjoy all the amenities they offer ! The room was very clean and spacious, also provided pool towels.
