There is something for everyone at the Quinta Rio Touro. At and from the Quinta:
"My husband and I wanted a nice place to visit where we would have a home base and feel as though we were a part of the country we were visiting and this place really did the trick! We picked fruit off trees and ate it - we had excellent conversation with our hosts - we got great advice about where to go and what to see. The accommodations were wonderful and made us feel very much that we were having a Portuguese experience rather than feeling like tourists."
"This is one of the very best places I stayed in. The hosts are terrific and are fluent in English, the rooms are fantastic, the farm is outstanding, and if you want to travel around please ask for advice from the hosts!"
"A wonderful setting which brings out all the best there is in Portugal. The company of our hosts was everything that the friendliness of this beautiful country is renowned to be."
"At last, I met someone with a "simple" taste, who loves "only" the very best…Thank for your wonderful hospitality."
A memorable week. Your hospitality has been exceptional and this has been a good base from which to explore this interesting part of Portugal."
"It was good to feel the noble space and the art of hosting."
"Such warmth, hospitality and loveliness - this place is absolute heaven!"
We shall miss this wonderful place, but hope to be back. We shall dream of your fresh eggs!"
