The 11 rooms are traditionally furnished, the dark wood of the beds contrasting with crisp white Portuguese linen, with soft rugs laid across the wooden floors. With views over the vineyard and river, they are a welcoming place to relax with a glass of local wine. Outside, the whitewashed walls are heavy with scented flowers, providing a scenic backdrop to the various outdoor seating areas, including the serene terrace and winter garden.

With 8km of walking and biking trails, as well as boat, train and helicopter experiences, there is plenty to occupy guests directly from this charming hotel.
