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
