Este espaço era um antigo moinho de milho. Fica mesmo ao lado do Rio com águas cristalinas. A natureza circundante torna este local um verdadeiro paraíso.
A casa é um antigo moinho, inserido numa pequena quinta, mesmo na margem dum pequeno rio e rodeado por uma paisagem fantástica!
Um verdadeiro paraíso! Em plena natureza!
  • A lovely and special private place. The tiny house is a unique experience which we loved. Felt secluded but still close to community.

    Clare2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • What a great stay. The place where the house is is wonderful. If it is communion seeking with nature is well worth the bet. Mário and Vila were one of the most helpful people we met in all the experiences we've had through Airbnb. Very very good.

    João2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • Mr.Mario and D.Cila were both very friendly and the mill was extraordinary to rest from the hustle and bustle of the city.

    Carla2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Casa do Moinho is great for two people! In the tranquility and deep in nature, it left each of us delighted with the surrounding environment! The smell of grass, putting your feet in the river, all this in an intimate space and ours alone! We were immensely grateful! Ana and Fabio

    Ana Rita2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Casa do Moinho can be considered a very charming place. It is tiny but very neatly decorated and clean. It is a luxury to listen to the river right next to the house and see how our dogs enjoyed and played in the surroundings while enjoying the views, the fluttering butterflies, the birds jumping in the treetops and the sound of the water. And best of all was the friendliness, closeness and friendliness of the hosts. 100% recommended

    Adrian2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Casa do Moinho is a magical place, which gives us very pleasant moments with nature. For those who like nature, listening to the sounds of the water is really a fantastic place to spend a few days. The hospitality of Mario and Cila were exceptional. For those who want to enjoy a moment of tranquility and connection with nature, I highly recommend it.

    Dora2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • An experience to repeat. We really enjoyed staying at the mill house. A calm and relaxing place. Well cared for and cared for by Mario and Cila who were clean. We appreciate all the availability.

    Rodrigo2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible experience, enjoying a beautifully restored and preserved natural space. Even with persistent rain the charm of this haven has not been lost, it only whet your appetite for a return on sunny days. The welcome and friendliness "only" deserve 5 * :-)

  • We liked it a lot, the house is very well decorated and the beds are super comfortable. It's a little cold in winter, even with the fireplaces lit.

  • A wonderful space: the house spacious and with all the necessary amenities. An incredible landscape that provides a sense of tranquility. The reception was fantastic as we arrived quite late from the trip and even then, you came and greets us and showed us your quinta. I recommend this house, especially for those who want to do the Paiva walkways.

  • Beautiful place loved my stay a t Dulces house. They went above and beyond in anything I needed and would definitely stay here again. Also two beautiful water falls within 30 minutes. The only downside is the location. If you’re looking to go into the cities it’s atleast hour drive maybe more but the country side is beautiful.

    Henry2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • This house was amazing with a beautiful yard! We were impressed by the off street private parking as well as the breathtaking views of the mountains! We have been traveling around Spain and Portugal for 10 days and have stayed in 5 different Airbnb's and Dulce's space was our favorite so far!! We would come back again for sure!!

    Terry2019-10-20T00:00:00Z

Lots of play equipment, football area, games room, bbq! Fantastic! Oh, and a laundry room, very useful! Fresh rolls delivered to our door each day was the icing on the cake!

    A Casa do Paúl disponibiliza um aconchegante estúdio, resultante de um antigo palheiro recuperado. Localizado numa típica aldeia portuguesa, totalmente equipado, é ideal para casais que apreciam natureza, conforto e tranquilidade.
    A Casa do Paúl resultou da recuperação de uma casa antiga, tendo por base a aplicação dos princípios de construção sustentável, nomeadamente através da utilização de materiais locais que contribuíssem para uma maior eficiência energética, associada ao conforto ambiental. Pretendeu-se igualmente que a intervenção no imóvel degradado preservasse a memória do antigo, mantendo as paredes exteriores em xisto. O estúdio é dotado com o equipamento indispensável para uma estadia com comodidade, ideal para o acolhimento de turistas interessados nas potencialidades naturais da região, em particular do seu rio.
    A Casa do Paúl fica localizada junto à margem do rio Paiva, rio com características únicas para a prática de rafting, kayaking e canyoning. Os trilhos existentes e a floresta envolvente oferecem numerosas possibilidades para explorar, para além da vila de Arouca, com um valioso património cultural, geológico, gastronómico.
  • We had a magical weekend at the guest house. Great access to the Passadiços de Paiva, and other local walks (we also did the PR10 trail which goes right by the house). It's lovely and secluded, we enjoyed feeling out in nature with the sounds of the stream nearby. Yet it's a short drive to some nice restaurants. We particularly liked the fresh bread every delivered every day. We hope to return to do some rafting on the river in the Spring.

    Jessica2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • It is not worth saying much ... I would not be faithful to the magic of Casa do Paul. I highly recommend it, especially for those who want to visit the Passadiços do Paiva and the Arouca region. Staying at Casa do Paul was to be out of the world and within a history with Nature.

    Joao2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in the Casa do Paúl loft, and the experience was incredible. The house has an architecture that respects the surrounding environment and the house was designed in detail. Surrounded by water and nature, the house is extremely comfortable with everything you need, including the basics for cooking. The location is excellent and very close to the Passadiços do Paiva. Dulce and D. Lina were tireless in making us comfortable. I strongly recommend it.

    Álvaro2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • The house was super easy to find despite the late hours we arrived. Everything was amazing and the space is wonderful. It is exactly as in the photos, super care and clean. Everything is in excellent condition. It has a great location for those intending to go to Paiva Walkways, it is a 15-minute walk away. It is relatively close to Arouca. Dulce has always responded as soon as possible and always with super helpful information. It is definitely a good choice to rest and enjoy the nature around us. Thank you!

    Ana2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Casa do Paul is absolutely spectacular. The space is very relaxing, comfortable furnishings with a stunning wall-to-wall window overlooking nature. Dulce kindly provided all necessities for breakfast including ham, cheese, eggs, milk, juice, yogurt and fresh bread delivered daily; it was an excellent way to start each day. The location is quite remote, meaning an evening drive is required to go out for meals. However, this location is very near the start of the Paiva river walkways which is convenient. We highly recommend!

    Lynne2019-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • We generally choose our AirBnB's based on the "architecture" of the place, knowing always that photos are photos, and sometimes Photoshop and wide angles can make a few spaces seem nicer than they really are... But with Dulce's place this was not at all the case!! The photos are amazing and the place is just as good or better! The hospitality is also great and we would recommend this studio to any couple looking for a peaceful and calm retreat for the Passadiços do Paiva!

    Pedro2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a nice stay at Dulce. The loft is absolutely superb! Many amenities are available such as an iron, kettle and so on. In the morning, we had fresh bread rolls hanging on our door, what a treat! Dulce was very welcoming and available. She quickly informed us of the pump operators' strike so that we could notify the tanker. In the morning and evening, it is necessary to provide a sweater because it is cool in the region. Go for it!

    Vincent2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, secluded place. Great hub to see Arouca region (and even its surroundings)! Dulce is thoughtful and very helpful!

    Raanan2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • On arrival, the view took our breath away, and the house (we had the small one) was spotless, modern (even air conditioning), and had everything we needed. Lovely and private with stunning views out of the windows. There was nobody in the other house, so we had the place to ourselves, incl. hammock and terrace, which we loved. João and his wife run a café on the other side of the valley and were super helpful. João even helped us with a puncture during his busiest lunch time. We were so happy with our choice and would gladly stay at the place again and recommend it to others.

    Mark And Sinka2019-07-09T00:00:00Z

  • Very cozy space with a fantastic view, but a little cold. The hosts were very friendly and offered to help with any questions.

    Miguel2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Douro Studio a little slice of heaven! If you are looking for a quiet retreat in the Douro Valley. This could be the place for you. The photos are very accurate. It is in a remote location so you will need a car and the GPS coordinates to find it. The patio has amazing views of the river valley. The unit is well equipped, although the mattress on the bed was a wee bit uncomfortable. The bathroom is located downstairs so if you have mobility issues you might reconsider. Joaquin and Christina were great hosts. We were only there one night and brought supplies for dinner which we cooked in the unit! We enjoyed a glass of wine and tapas on the patio watching the sunset! Thanks for hosting us!

    Jona2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great studio to stay in. The hospitality of Joaquim and Cristina is fantastic! They give a lot of tips to do in the area or where to eat. The area is nice to go for a walk and have a delicious dinner. Thank you Cristina and Joaquim for the great time in your studio!

    Milou2019-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • This was such a gorgeous location and experience! We only got to stay one night, but would definitely recommend it for a multi night stay for discovering the Douro valley. Joaquim and Cristina are fantastic hosts full of hospitality and information about the region. It turns out there are beautiful walking trails nearby we wish we had time to explore. And we can't say enough about the view- it was absolutely beautiful! The space was also beautiful, clean, welcoming and with a very well equipped kitchen to cook your meals and enjoy them on the patio. We cannot recommend enough and wished we had more time to stay.

    Bronwyn2019-10-06T00:00:00Z

  • Cristina and Joaquims Douro Studio surpassed our expectations. We immediately felt at home and relaxed. The best view ever. Amenities were also good and Cristina even offered for us to do washing if we needed. But the best part about this overnight stay is the owners. So caring and friendly we wished we could have stayed longer to get to know them better. We cannot recommend this stay more highly.

    We offer a revitalizing experience in a very peaceful village between the Serra de S. Macário and Paiva river. Escape from civilization to this peaceful getaway! Reconnect with nature and sustainable farming and disconnect from technology. Get surrounded by pristine nature just less than two hours drive from Porto. At an hiking distance there are the mountains in the pictures and the unspoiled Paiva river.
    We live in a little village between the Serra de S. Macário and Paiva river. You can benefit to relax surrounded by peaceful nature, enjoy the views of the mountain or go for a swim in the river.
    The village of Santo Estêvão is isolated, which gives more sense of belonging to the nature. The Eco farming activities of the hosts reminds us of the Portuguese rural reality and preserves the authenticity of the village. Surroundings: Serra do São Macário (7 km), Aldeia of Pena (10 km), Drave (14 km) and diving in the Paiva River (4 km).

    Janet2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing views to the mountain from the rooms and living room. Beautiful house, very cozy. We wanted to share time as a family and this place was perfect for that. 20min drive from the Espiunca end to Passadiços de Paiva. I will definitely come back and I recommend it 100%

    Verónica2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the house. One of our youngsters was very surprised about the wifi connection with the good quality and high speed at such a remote place. The walk to the creek down the way was amazing; beautiful nature, flowers en crystal clear, fresh water. It was strenuous because of the steep path and high temperatures but very rewarding. We could reflect on our stay in the shadowy garden and in the hammock.

    Gerrit2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Top accommodation in a great location. Definitely recommended! Large terrace on the 1st floor with nice view and nice garden below with hammocks, next to vineyard. There is table football and Wii. Nice, helpful host. Tips for trips: Porto, Aveiro / Costa Nova, the Paiva walkways, Arouca. The cottage is quite difficult to reach. A very steep, bumpy and winding path leads from the road to Casa da Bichaca!

    Petra2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very nice, very well equipped and decorated. The only downside is that it is located about 1 hour from Porto and that to access it is better to have a good vehicle. The host is attentive to the slightest need and friendly. It was not too complicated to understand each other. In summary, we were very happy with our stay.

    Camille2019-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • The house has great facilities, is very well decorated and equipped and very clean. We were very well received from the beginning, having been provided with all the information we requested, including the suggestions of restaurants, which were great. We liked it a lot and wanted to repeat the experience.

    Paula2019-05-12T00:00:00Z

  • We recommend Dom Emilia to everyone who comes from Poland in the vicinity of the Douro Valley! This is probably the most beautiful house in this region, decorated in a very artistic atmosphere and with a centuries-old history. Emilia, who is a hostess is an extremely hospitable and fantastic person, the heart on the palm offers for her guests. Staying in this place was an amazing adventure for us. We will definitely come back to this place again! :-) PS. The view from the terrace is breathtaking ... Who will have the opportunity to come here, he will be convinced himself :-)

    Marzena2019-06-14T00:00:00Z
  • What an experience! The house is large, rambling, old and full of charecter, which Emilia has greatly enhanced with her artwork. The location is stunning, down a short track in the mountains with fantastic views. It is quiet and relaxing, with great outdoor areas to chill in. The house and rooms were spotless despite the open fire. Highly recommended

    Elizabeth2018-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • This rambling 16th century farm house is as much museum and art gallery as BnB. Host is a sweetheart and the room was lovely. If allergic to cats, steer clear, as she has numerous - all outside. The views are magnificent and local restaurant was fantastic.

    Don2018-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Emilia is a very nice person, kind and exceptional. She immediately put us at ease in her beautiful and big house filled with her works of art. The view is very beautiful. Again thank you for everything, it was a very nice meeting.

    Sar Gary2018-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful place and what a beautiful meeting! Emilia is wonderful and her house is splendid, nestled in the mountains of the Douro. We exchanged a lot with Emilia, in French, and took advantage of the incredible charm of this place. We are very satisfied with our stay, and advise without reserve to all the lovers of nature, the calm of this region of Portugal. Congratulations and thank you again

Poderão ainda trilhar a nossa serra em passeios de BTT.
    A casa está localizada numa das ruas típicas da vila de Arouca, integrada num ambiente rústico no circuito histórico.

Attention all the same it is important to know that the parking is at the bottom of the housing and therefore the bags are to go up on foot and access to people with reduced mobility is difficult. We have not been concerned by this but it is to know. Thanks to Carlos and Andreia it was great! We recommend!

Nearby (5km walking, 10km by car) you have stunning views over the mountains (Serra do S. Macário). You can also observe and feed the farm animals (sheep, goats, pig, rabbits, chickens, fishes).

  • We reached the space in the middle of the storm where unfortunately there was a general electricity shortage in the village. Maria Elisabete was extremely helpful and concerned about our convenience, ensuring that the lack of light would not be a problem for us. In less than 15 minutes we had the generator at home. Fortunately the electricity returned quickly. We spent 2 days "closing" at home due to bad weather, but we did not consider our vacation as spoiled. We could not have chosen a better home !!! The warmth of the fireplaces, the comfort of the woods of the floor and the warm waters of the jacuzzi ... were more than enough to be able to "enjoy" the bad weather outside. We wanted to go back so we can enjoy the excellent exterior and the natural beauty that the mountains promise.

    Vera2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I stayed with our baby girl for four nights. The house was fantastic - very clean and comfortable! Pool and hot tub were very enjoyable. Location is very quiet, roughly 15 minutes from Arouca. Highly recomended!

  • Very nice apartment in the country side, with a nice natural pool and nice gardens and great views and very quiet and perfect for some relaxing days. Manuel and Maria treated us very well and we enjoyed the fruit, fresh bread and everything else they brought by. Not to far from Porto by car (90 minutes), but you can also take the train. Perfect place to relax and recover from the daily rush at home. Thanks a again for everything.

  • We spent some very pleasant days at Pedro's house. The house is very beautiful and comfortable and the place is beautiful, in the mountain on a valley valley and very close to the river Douro. Must have some beautiful walks around there, but unfortunately the weather did not allow us to explore the place better. But on the other hand, we were marvelously welcomed by Pedro's parents who filled us with gifts: eggs, fruit, wine, sweets ... even soup for the baby, besides his great sympathy and constant care with our well-being! Thank you so much for everything, we hope to return!

    Isabel2017-09-01T00:00:00Z

  • Very nice accommodation, very clean, in a quiet, surrounded by nature. Ideal to discover the Douro Valley.

    Camille2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Quinta de S. Cipriano is wonderful. It is easy to find, very quiet and has a surrounding landscape that pays nothing. The house of Eira where we stayed accommodates two people well. It is a cottage with bedroom and bathroom, has fan and heater if needed, and plus point - mosquito nets on the door and windows. The kitchen is exterior and has everything needed to cook meals, including barbecue and firewood. Dining facilities are enjoyable as most restaurants are at least 20min along curvy roads. It is a great place for those traveling with couples or even with friends staying in the other houses of the Quinta. The pool is wonderful and very nice. The farm is huge and with many fruit trees. The housekeepers greatly improved the stay: we were very well received by the very friendly Mrs. Julia, Mr. Gaudêncio took us around the farm to store the sheep and made us a tasting of our own wines. It's on our list for one day to come back!

    Mafalda2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • This place is truly amazing. Loved everything about it and I will be dreaming of this place when I get back home, seriously. The views are breathtaking and the whole place has a very relaxed vibe. With the farmer there you feel safe and welcomed. They are all so nice and everything is better than expected: the pool (very clean en gorgeous), the bed (nice and soft), the fireplace with more than enough wood for a fun and romantic night. I didn't spend any time on my phone, and I am kind of addicted to it! I so hope I am able to come back one day.

    Elouise2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect! A beautiful place to unwind and explore the Douro Valley. We would come back anytime.

    Veronika2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • What a magical place! A perfect place to get away from it all for a couple of days. The views from the house were unbelievable, with breathtaking sunsets every night. The pool area was beautiful and an excellent place to recharge between walks around the farm, and hikes through the old pedestrian roads that wind their way through the hillsides! Would definitely recommend, however be sure to call restaurants to make sure they are open before heading down the mountain into town!!

    Wesley2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Ideal place to spend a few days in absolute peace. The farm is large, has animals, and very good conditions. Dona Julia and Mr. Gaudêncio are a maximum. Congratulations and we will be back :)

Inside the house everything is amazing, much better than in the photos, it´s a bit like time travel but with style. The view from the balcony is extraordinary, and the rooms are really nice. The owner Maria Luisa was very kind to us, really nice person, and the lady that set the breakfast for us (Alice) is kind and friendly, seems like family, couldnt be better.

    Casa do Tapadinho is an authentic rustic villa - close to the south bank of Douro River - isolated from the outside world, located in a peaceful and welcoming countryside area - just 1 hour driving from Oporto airport - where the green color is the empress. It combines the charm and glamour of a traditional family house with the comfort of all the modern facilities that provides you with an unique and pleasant stay among the vineyards and terraces or by a great swimming pool.
    The property, with around 10.000 m2, has some different environments that you can chose from, according your state of mind. Near an old water tank you can rest while you read a book. Here, the water running sound or the chirping of the birds will be the only enemy of total silence. In the opposite side, you can find a pool (6,5mX12m and between 1m and 1,5 deep) where you can swim and play with your children. Between this two areas you can walk throw a small vineyard and find some fruit trees. The house, rusticly decorated, is composed by two comfortable bedrooms - with double beds, one complete bathroom and a strictly equipped kitchen which merges with an adjoining living forming a pleasant open space. Simple, beautiful, functional and with everything you need.
    "Casa do Tapadinho" is located in "Casal da Renda", 7,7 km (10 minutes diving) from Castelo de Paiva city, 10 km (50 minutes diving) form Porto city center and 1 hour from Porto's airport. Douro River beaches are close from the house and there you can swim, ride a kayaks (in Raiva - 15 minutes) or practice nautical activities (in Pedorido - 20 minutos). In Castelo de Paiva there are several cultural activities like visit Marmoiral do Sobrado, Menorial de Alpendurada, Museu de Pedra de Alpendurada, Pia dos Mouros, Convento de Alpendurada. If you drive 30 minutes you will find "Passadiços do Paiva". «Paiva Walkways are located on the left bank of the Paiva River, in Arouca municipality, Aveiro, Portugal. They are 8 km long and provide an "untouched" walk, surrounded by landscapes of unique beauty, in an authentic natural sanctuary along the brave waters downhills, quartz crystals and endangered species in Europe. The route extends from the river beaches of Areinho and Espiunca, lying between them, the Vau beach. A journey through biology, geology and archeology that will remain, of course, in heart, soul and in mind of any nature lover.»
  • We had a great stay in Portugal thanks to Gloria. Booking, checking in and checking out went super smoothly and Gloria was also always easily accessible. The cottage itself was also in perfect shape, just like the swimming pool and garden. We also had all the necessary facilities (good WiFi and even a washing machine available). In short, we had a great stay. Thanks Gloria and see you again!

  • We stayed at Gloria's place for 4 nights and could not be happier. It was a very last minute booking (on the day of), and we are glad we chose this option over others. The location is superb, about an hour from Porto. The property is elevated with beautiful views of mountains. Communication with Gloria was great and any questions we had during the stay were answered within minutes. Special thanks to the host for allowing a later check out. The house can comfortably fit a family (2 bedrooms, we are a family of 3). Kitchen was very well equipped and had everything needed for cooking. The property is well maintained and spotless clean. Gloria even offered an additional cleaning service halfway through our stay. The outdoor pool is hands down the most amazing feature of Gloria's place. Besides the views, it is substantial in size to do laps and also has night lighting. My husband virtually never goes to pools - except for Gloria's! That says a lot! The entire property is very private. I highly recommend. There are a few things we wished were available during the stay, like an outdoor grill and a fan or air conditioner. However, as I mentioned, the kitchen had everything necessary. Also, we stayed during heatwave. Absence of AC in normal weather would not be an issue. We would stay again!

    Aliaksandra2018-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • A rural rustic retreat in a tranquil setting with far reaching views from the wisteria clad terrace. A fabulous pool area to relax and unwind which we enjoyed as a family as well as day trips to Porto and Paiva Walkway. Supermarkets and river beaches also nearby

  • Thank you Mr. Manuel for allowing us. Paaar those days at home. We appreciate it very much. We loved being there. I only saw one problem. And it was the flies. But passable

  • The house is wonderful! For those who want a haven of peace and fresh air, Casa da Corga caters very well! And for those who want a stay between friends and family, the atmosphere is cozy and familiar. You can see the simple country life up close, in a very pleasant village climate. Summer tours are great, as indicated by host Manuel, but a trip to this house in other seasons should also be great, as the house offers structure for the heat or cold! It was simply wonderful and I intend to return soon!

  • We were only one night at A Casa da Corga after having done the Os Passadiços do Paiva route. Manuel was a very kind host: he waited for us at the arrival of our route, he accompanied us to the house and then he also accompanied us to Arouca to show us a restaurant where we had dinner. He explained to us on the way the access to different centers of interest in the area. We visited the Trilobites museum in Canelas (very interesting) and ate at the only restaurant in that small town (highly recommended). In Vila Cova (place where the house is located) the tranquility and the view are impressive. Very advisable if we want to rest and disconnect.

  • Corga's House is a beautiful house, equipped with everything to make us feel right at home. The house sits in a secluded and tranquil hillside and, after enjoying our first meals looking over the green forest canopy, we immediately regretted having to leave the next day. As advertised, Casa da Corga is only a few minutes away from Paiva Walkways, and is also perfectly located to access the awesome Arouca Geopark. Manuel is an excellent host, who gave us a warm welcome and provided us with lots of useful tips about the best way to enjoy all that the region has to offer. Thank you Manuel for everything, we look forward to come back to Casa da Corga. Casa da Corga is a beautiful house, equipped with everything to make us feel at home.

  • We loved our stay in the house !! A house with excellent conditions and very pleasant spaces! It corresponds to 100% of what is shown in the photographs. Bathroom and fully equipped kitchen !! The terrace is great for socializing, being able to dine outdoors, and to make some churrascadas !!! The house is really well situated and in a very quiet space. Many thanks to the hosts for being 100% available to me and my group, whether it be with house issues or questions about Arouca.
