This was a delightful property to stay at. Tranquil and relaxing. It offers great views over the Douro valley. It is a working vineyard and is well appointed with a beautiful pool, plenty of parking, vege garden on site. The drive there is on a narrow road but don’t let that put you off it’s well worth it. Our hosts were very helpful and welcoming. The communal dinner was a highlight. Excellent food (as was the beautiful breakfast the next day) and fantastic company with fellow guests. Great conversations, fabulous wine and a most relaxing night indeed. We stayed at another Quinta which despite being rated higher was no match with this beautiful property.

Perfect hideaway
A small bolt hole, 4 rooms as part of a working winery hidden well off the beaten track. Great staff & simple meals with local wine make it a relaxing place to stay. You can tour the vineyard and winery or simply relax by the pool but it’s definitely a place to recharge your batteries. The bed was comfortable, linen and towels good. Nice lavender toiletries provided and a fabulous marble bathroom which has given me some ideas ;) Be aware: the drive down to the house is a challenge (we did it on a heavily laden touring motorbike and it was pretty hairy). I think that’s why people end up doing half or full board here.
