Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Me and my family stayed there for one night and it was amazing. The drive there helps build up the feeling you are going to place to relax and simply enjoy it! The rooms are beautiful and the all property is very well kept. The views are spectacular and spending the afternoon at the pool was really good, how not to enjoy a pool with those views?! We had dinner and breakfast outdoors, the food and service were really good, local products, attention to detail, and social distancing measures in place. A wine tasting session was gifted from a friend and definitely recommend it, it helps to know a bit more about their passion for winemaking and to know about the story behind Herdade do Vau, needless to say, how gorgeous the wines are. Definitely recommend it and looking forward to staying there again soon! Thank you so much for such an amazing weekend!

I am in love with Herdade do Vau! From the moment we arrived to the last moment was magical. We stayed only one night here and that was a mistake. I want to go back for a week. When we arrived we realized we were the only guests there on the property. Rang the bell and a lovely woman came out who did not speak English (and my family does NOT speak portugese.) Through miming we found our GORGEOUS rooms in the main house along with a lovely living area and dining room and well equipped spotless kitchen. She showed us the pool, made sure we had towels. I asked about beer and wine (it had been a long drive after all) and she led me to the old beautiful barn that had been repurposed as a tasting room and game room. So atmospheric! Then she pointed to the refridgerator which was stocked with beer and the wine made by the family that owns the house, took me to the kitchen to show where the corkscrew and glasses were. I was so excited about this that I went looking for my brother in law to show him. She did not understand what we were doing and was concerned we did not like our rooms and offered to let us stay in others. More miming later and we settled that because our rooms were, again, fantastic!!!!! We relaxed and enjoyed the pool and the amazing views and the nice lady came out to say that cocktails and appetizers would be served on the terrace and dinner would be ready in 30 minutes. We sat down to dinner in the lovely house at the large table meant for more than our small crowd and enjoyed spectacular paella, fresh tomatoes and salad. There was a lovely cake for dessert and the most amazing local cheese. STAY FOR THE DINNER, people! The next day, Luis came and apologized for not being there that night and told us of a lovely hike to the top of the nearby hill for more spectacular views and the way to the river where an old mill was there. Apparently this was the site of the old roman road and river ford. Those romans knew what they were doing - the countryside was so lovely. The breakfast the next day was lovely, more of that amazing cheese as well as meat, cereal, sweet rolls, bread, fruit, cheese and ham. And more of that amazing local cheese. Luis said we could stay as long as we liked if we could move our luggage to one room to allow the housekeeper to clean the other rooms. We lingered as long as we could and were reluctant to leave. When I went to pay the bill, I bought 3 bottles of wine for 7.5 euros each and told my brother in law. He said we needed 6 more because it was such lovely wine and a great price. We mimed to the housekeeper that we wanted more and she asked us to wait. Unknown to us, she called Luis who had left and came back to sell us more - how sweet is that? This is an amazing property that has been lovingly restored and expanded by a family that loves what they do - making wine and sharing it with others. Staying there is like staying at your rich friends country home. You MUST make a point of staying here! You will remember it for a lifetime. One note, they do not take credit cards, so have your euros handy.

I returned this year with my husband after a wonderful night's stay on the way back from the Algarve to Lisbon last year. It was a good as I remembered - a stunning conversion including a barn with ping pong and a picturesque pool. It's worth booking in for dinner as it's a good 20 mins to any other kind of life. The food is delicious and you sit with other guests who are always interesting. We even helped a bit with the grape harvest the following morning. All very idyllic.

We have been already a few times at Herdade do Vau. The experience has been always great. We enjoy the swimming pool and the wonderful views together with the drinks at sunset. The meals are excellent: real home made Portuguese food, simple and very well done with local ingredients. The visit to the vineyards is very instructive and Miguel is a passionate "professor". Manel and Miguel are fantastic hosts and make us feel at home.

A former farmhouse nicely restored in a place of difficult access that ensures peace and magnificent view over Guadiana river. Have some attention when driving in the last 2 km . The road is not asphalted! My room was spacious with nice furniture but could have a few more chairs for clothes . The bathroom was modern but poorly lit and with little room for personal belongings . The breakfast was excellent, varied and delicious . We had dinner at a large table with the owners and other guests. The codfish main course was delicious and the wine even better

This 19th century renovated villa is a unique and delightful get-a-way. Although it's off the beaten path it is well worth the effort. Situated in the rolling hills of a countryside covered in olive trees and grapevines, the beauty is exquisite and very different from the mountains in the north or the seaside towns on the coast. The rooms are beautifully redone. They have modern furnishings and air conditioning. The service was outstanding, as was the wine from the vineyard. The infinity pool, various areas to read or rest, and the family style dining for dinner made it an experience we will never forget.

And so we drove in the country side, beyond castles and forts endless plantations of olives, sunflowers and vines until a dirt road started. As a Chilean i knew that it was a great sing, the sign for real people. Lovely setting to enjoy wines, relax and look at the stars. Thank you for all the talks and all the thoughts, you built a great place for travelers to gather and share stories. Cheers!

Our hosts, Maria and Miguel, made our stay absolutely fabulous. We arrived as guests and left as friends. What a delight to linger on the terrace, tasting the fantastic wines with Miguel and nibbling on all the lovely small dishes carried out from the kitchen. And the tasty dinner where the hosts and all the guests from all over the world gather around the long table was a perfect ending to a great day. The next morning Miguel guided us through the vineyards, and it was mesmerizing to hear him speak passionately about how he grows his vine and produces the award winning wines of RISO. The rooms are spacious and very nice, and beds are super comfortable. If you are in the Beja region, don't miss this gem! We only wish we could have stayed longer, and really hope to return some day.

My wife and stayed here in October 2015. I would basically second the positive comments about the hosts, the accommodations, the views and the fact that it's off the beaten track. It was obvious that every effort was made every effort to create an attractive and tasteful ambiance that harmonized with its surroundings. We didn't have dinner there, as we had reservations elsewhere and didn't know what we were missing. We slept well, and the breakfast was ample and excellent.

We were very much looking forward to our stay at Herdade do Vau after reading the online reviews. The staff were kind and welcoming. The property itself has great potential to be lovely - however it was extremely cold both indoors and outdoors during our stay. Unfortunately we were told that the heater in the dining area had run out of gas, and the fireplace was not started despite the cold. It made it hard to enjoy the potentially cozy and welcoming environment, which instead came off as cold and unwelcoming. I had to wear multiple layers of outdoor clothing to dinner, which we were unable to enjoy as we simply wanted to return to our room, where there was a functional heater! Our room itself was very nicely decorated, with a stunning view - but again, we were disappointed by a very firm/uncomfortable mattress (and we prefer firm, but not painfully so!) and mold on the shower curtain. We will be looking elsewhere for accommodation if we have the opportunity to return to this beautiful part of Portugal.
