Country House Quinta da Salgueira

Bedrooms 1
Property type farmhouse
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

At Douro vineyards we refurbished a old stable into a little charming house

For so many years in the family, Quinta da Salgueira, a typical farm from the world's oldest wine appellation, is located in the heart of the Douro, at river Pinhão Valley, the ideal place to consistently explore the north of Portugal, namely the Douro Valley. We refurbished the old stable into a little charming house, close to our main house, and we would like to accommodate you as our guest. We hope to give you everything a guest can expect and we will do our best in such a way that you will have a pleasant stay. We will be very pleased on having you with us for two nights, but we think, and we insist with you, that it would be better spending some more time with us, as it is the better way to enjoy the peace and the charming of our Douro. Here, in addition to vineyards, you can hear birds singing and the sound of silence! And, starting in our/your home, you can visit most part of the north of Portugal. We are served by very good roads and till 100Km around you can find, and visit, several of the most beautiful Portuguese towns (Oporto, Braga, Guimarães – where Portugal is born – Barcelos, Chaves, Bragança, Vila Real and Viseu.

From our swimming pool you can enjoy a magnificent landscape and, at the end of the day, when we are in the quiet of the swimming pool, very often swallows dive to drink water near us.

On demand, we can provide you breakfast (milk or tea, bread, butter and homemade jam – 3 euro).

We look forward to seeing you soon!

On behalf of Quinta da Salgueira

Wonderful cottage nestled in the heart of Douro Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

Francisco and Cristina are friendly, welcoming hosts. Their cottage is located deep within the Douro Wine Country, and the vista from the terrace is breathtaking. We enjoyed the quiet respite during our morning breakfast and in the evening while drinking wine and looking at the stars. Francisco had several excellent suggestions for lunch and dinner in the area and made sure we had fresh bread for our breakfast. The cottage has a bedroom in a loft and a kitchen, bath and sitting room on the main floor. The bathroom had a wonderful shower and a bathtub! The kitchen was well equipped and included a coffee machine with capsules. We stopped in Alijo on our way to the cottage to pick up food for breakfast. There are many vineyards in the area and several towns worth a visit - our favorite was Lamego. We only booked two nights and wished we had time in our itinerary to stay longer! (Note: the road to the cottage is not paved, so make sure you drive slowly:)

Accueil chaleureux

  • 5 of 5

Accueil vraiment très chaleureux des propriétaires, toujours prêts à rendre service. Gîte propre et mignon + cadre reposant et magnifique. Seul point négatif : l'accès au gîte pour une voiture basse.

A relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The accommodation is very pleasant, although the living room is quite small, but this wasn't a problem as we were able to eat all our meals out on the terrace or by the pool, where we could enjoy the views. Francisco and Cristina were the perfect hosts, friendly without being too intrusive.

Petite maison atypique dans un cadre magnifique et des hôtes charmants

  • 4 of 5

Petite maison rénovée, au milieu des vignobles, proche de celle des propriétaires, avec accès quasiment particulier à la piscine - famille adorable, avec de nombreuses attentions.

Un environnement assez exceptionnel "hors du temps"...

Petit point d'attention: chemin de terre de plusieurs centaines de mètres difficile d'accès, peut poser pb à des voitures basses.

Kind, fair and generous

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunatly we had had to cancel our trip due to medical reasons just one week before the planned arrival in Quinta da Salgueira, so I can't say anything about the facilities. But what I can say ist that the kindness, fairness and generosity of Francisco and his wife are exceptional! Thank you so much...
