Vale do Rio
The main reason for the construction of the Vale do Rio Hotel Rural was the existence of a mini-hydro, already in this place, since the end of 1800. After properly restored and in operation, it was reflected the chance to share the magnificent landscape of this place, known as 'Princess of the Caima', with the most modern infrastructures and all the services of excellence. This is an innovative project, an eco-hotel that intends to take advantage of and exploit various renewable energies: hydro, solar, photo voltaic, biomass and biodiesel.
We are honored for the second consecutive year with the "Green Key" award.
The "Green Key" program is an international award that promotes Sustainable Tourism in Portugal through the recognition of tourist establishments, local accommodation, campsites and restaurants that implement good environmental and social practices, which value environmental management in their establishments and which promote Environmental Education for Sustainability.
