... help paint the picture of the long lines of continuous terraces that cover the steep hills. The older terraces go across the hillsides, on the more recent terraces the grapes are planted down the slopes, allowing small tractor access. All this leads to patch work like patterns across slopes and valleys above the river. The grapes grow in schist which is very rocky. We explored the area along the river by train from Pinhao to Pocinho, by rabelo, ...
... giving us a bit of a run around down town. At last she says we arrived but couldn't really spot the Avis office so Joe walked back down the one way street only to spot the “AVIZ” Café. Wasted an hour on that one but decided to give the GPS another try to find the aeroporto and away we went. Only ask Ms. Garmin to take us to the airport and hope we could find Avis. Yes, we spotted it. We debated if we should return the old VW Golf full of petrol ...
... some 4000 vintners of Portuguese wine and port. The WOW factor is the landscape in the area. Picture a river with high hills on either side of the river, completely covered with grapes growing on man-made terraces (many with walls made of slate to create a terrace) all the way to the top of the hill. I mean as far as the eye can see there is nothing but grape vines, with olive tree groves interspered among them. The pictures you see ...
... and found a local restaurant with customers inside (all the others were empty as today is a national holiday in Portugal). We were told it was a set menu which was good with us, dishes kept arriving and very soon we were too full to move. We had a sausage to start and then pork cooked in red wine (gorgeous) followed by lamb in a spicy tomato sauce and then bacon in butter beans! Way too much for two people but all very lovely! We ...
We woke up today to lovely sunshine, I sat outside before breakfast reading my book overlooking the river and vines. We went into breakfast and unfortunately the heavens opened. We had planned to do the long walk around the estate today so we sat inside to read our books and hope the weather passes. It didn't -we ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Lamego
Hotel confortável e tranquilo, ideal para descansar um fim de semana, e aproveitar para visitar a bonita cidade de Lamego, e arredores.
Quartos e casas de banho muito espaçosos, só existiu um único senão relativamente aos quartos, a televisão não funcionava bem nos canais portugueses.
A piscina exterior é razoável (é pouco funda), a piscina interior, jacuzzi, sauna e banho turco são satisfatórios.
O serviço de restaurante, é pouco satisfatório, para não dizer que é realmente fraco. É lento, muito lento, demorámos nas duas noites em que aí estivemos, sempre cerca de 2 horas a jantar, as entradas demoraram cerca de 1 hora a ser servidas. Não sei se foi por termos ficado hospedados através de Voucher do programa Odisseias, que o serviço foi pior. Relativamente à comida a escolha do menu, é pouco satisfatória nos pratos principais, relativamente às entradas recomendo as sopas, que realmente são o melhor de toda a refeição, saliento também a tarte de natas de sobremesa que estava deliciosa.
O pequeno-almoço é variado e satisfatório, mas para um hotel de 4 estrelas, a variedade das comidas quentes deveria ser maior e melhor confeccionada.
