Holiday Accommodation Details

Rota Vicentina Trek

Photo of the accommodation

We offer standard grade and higher grade accommodation every night on this trek. All are of good quality chosen for their charm, location and friendliness. All rooms have a private bathroom, mostly with a shower over the bath. The hotels will let you know about any local specialities for dinner and/or breakfast.

All of our standard grade accommodations have been selected for their convenient location close to the Rota Vicentina and for their simple, yet comfortable rooms. Each night is breakfast only as they are ideally located in the towns/villages within walking distance of a choice of good local restaurants.

All of our higher grade accommodations have been selected for their more luxurious appeal, all set within beautiful farmland and all offer a swimming pool making them a more rural, relaxing choice of accommodation. Due to their tranquil isolation, transfers are required between the path and accommodations, all of which are included in your holiday price. Breakfast and dinner is taken at each accommodation usually utilising their own fresh local produce.

Below is a brief description of our normal hotels, however, if full, we may change the hotel to something similar.
