Pensao Miradouro is a six room traditional Portuguese Pension - guest house. Located by the popular river beach in Avo, Oliveira do Hospital, Portugal it is an ideal place to stay and enjoy the quintessential pleasures of Portugal's rural life. Pensao Miradouro has on-suite rooms and a busy bar cafe, all set in a magnificent solid garnet building.


We have six rustic rooms with a mix of single and double beds, some have shower and basin within the room. Toilets located centrally. Rooms to the front of the Pension overlook Avo's famous river beach.


Pensao Miradouro is located in the popular village of Avo. Rural life plays out around the village, during the summer months many flock here to cool off from the persistent wild fires. The property is currently burnt to a crisp and is in need of a lick of paint. Once finished there will be a glorious party to celebrate the undoubtedly magnificent end result, where drinks will flow like fire hose. I for one am looking forward to my invitation, hint hint!

Wesley & Sharon Bar and Cafe

Busy and atmospheric bar housed within Pensao Miradouro. Drinks, snacks & live events make this the best bar in the world.

Large Dining Area

A large dining and social room within the guest house. Used for bed and breakfast, meetings and conferences.

Real Life

Exchange of news and ideas happens every day around the water fountain. The water is pure to drink.

River Swimming

On hot summer days the river is slashing with people cooling and relaxing. The beach is sandy and the water cool.


Pensao Miradouro is a typical quirky rustic Portuguese guest house that seems to bring the imagination out in our guests. We always are happy with the enthusiastic reports we get of peoples stay.

Really nice.

I love this place, the gorgeous wooden corridor and the balcony of room 4. Such a lovely stay. The bakers around the corner is excellent.

The idiosyncratic old place has character you just cant buy and the owner is as mad as a fruit bat! Thank you for a great stay.
