The main reason for the construction of the Vale do Rio Hotel Rural was the existence of a mini-hydro, since this site since the end of 1800. Once properly restored and functioning, was reflected the possibility of sharing the magnificent landscape of this place, known as "Princess Caima" with the most modern infrastructure and with all the excellent services. It is thus an innovative project, an eco-hotel that you want to enjoy and explore various renewable energy: hydro, wind, solar, photo-voltaic, biomass and biodiesel.
