What guests say about us

    I travel the world. This is not a hotel, it's just a fancy experience.

  • Anão - France
    I found the hotel in the Caractere brochure. Their description is 100% correct. An atmospheric small-scale hotel where you have the impression of staying with the owner and being welcomed like a friend. The food is delicious and only fresh and regional products are used. And all this at a perfect price/quality ratio. And also almost unique, and I know that I appreciate that breakfast was served at the table again by friendly and very discreet employees. I will gladly go back there if the opportunity arises. The location of Carmo's is also ideal for exploring the beautiful region, and believe me there is plenty to do and visit. My thanks to the team.

    Delightful... Deco is really something. The whole environment is calm and relaxing. Restaurant is very good with a fairly good wine variety.

    It is one of the hotels where I felt the best. A country house that feels like home! With incredible spaces, the reception area serving as a lounge, the outdoor areas overlooking the vineyards, the beautiful rooms filled with details, and the perfect spa. The service is completely personalised, and I must highlight the friendliness and dedication of the staff.

    "A place to get lost... Native cuisine. Breakfast is all homemade and both dinner and lunch are ordered hours in advance so they can prepare it for you. It's a great detail that they will buy what you want that day. And the treatment, completely personalized and which highlights the cordiality and dedication of the service and the hotel's managers."

    Some places capture your heart at first sight... and this is one of them. The staff at this hotel are lovely, from the reception to the masseuse. The rooms are extremely comfortable and welcoming, with bright decor. We thoroughly enjoyed the spa and the massages. Can't wait to come back soon to enjoy it all again.

    This accommodation has everything to make you forget reality. In a very quiet place surrounded by vegetation, the gardens are beautiful and very well cared. Our room was very comfortable and carefully decorated. The breakfast served on the terrace was the perfect finishing touch. The staff exceeded all expectations with their warm hospitality and genuine smiles.

  • AndreF81 - Portugal
    This hotel is a unique experience. "Details" is the right word. From the moment of your arrival, you will be greeted in the parking lot by someone with a smile on their face. Forget about your luggage and embark on the experience. Our room seemed straight out of a storybook, with every corner filled with details (old books, paintings, furniture, a work of art).

  • Olivia - United Kingdom
    The garden and pool area are beautiful. The perfect hotel to relax in the countryside. The breakfast was delicious with plenty of options. We had dinner there one night, and it was perfect! The local food was very tasty. The spa was also lovely, and the therapist was excellent. The overall experience was amazing!

    This unique hotel in northern Portugal is one we will never forget. The hotel building showcases beautiful modern minimalist architecture. Outside, there is a stunning pool with comfortable sun loungers. The rooms are spacious, and the bed was excellent. Moreover, and very importantly, the Carmo's staff is incredibly friendly! Throughout our entire trip, they assisted us with everything, including organizing trips to explore the region.

    I really enjoyed this boutique hotel. We were two couples and found a super charming town (Ponte de Lima). The tours organized by the hotel were great. The food was very good, the service was very friendly, and the ambiance was modern and romantic.
