Have you seen our video on YouTube?

Wonderful Quality Villa

Private Pool with stunning views

Games Room with Pool Table and Stereo

FREE Delicious Full Daily Breakfast

Satellite TV & Wifi - Many English German and French Channels

5 Minutes from The Cute Riverside Village of Pinhao

Just over an hour from Porto

This home has been finished with the highest standard of local materials, local stone, wood and other hand crafted materials.

There are many homes to rent available in the Douro, but this house is very different and offers something special to our guests.

What makes this holiday home different?

1. Carla, our housekeeper comes every morning at a time agreeable to you and discreetly enters through the kitchen door and prepares a beautiful breakfast. You wanted some scrambled eggs on toast? No problem just ask her - she is very obliging.

Breakfast made and served for you every morning starts the day with a smile and no stress!

2. Welcome drink and cake - Carla comes and meets and greets you and looks after you on arrival and helps with your suitcases on arrival. She then offers you some homemade cake and a welcome Port Wine or a soft drink for the children.

3. Carla organises with you upon arrival when you would like to enjoy your complimentary meal which includes local wines (minimum 7 night stay)

4. You receive a free mobile phone with a local SIM card, already pre-loaded with 10 Euros for local calls to make your life a little easier - perhaps to call a local restaurant to make a reservation or maybe to book one of the many exciting activities.

5. We provide you a Tablet - to use during your stay with us. You will find pre-loaded lots of links to information of local amenities and activities

6. After you book with us, we put you in touch with our House Administration Manager Isabel, who co-ordinates your arrival time and also helps guide you to excellent sources of information to perhaps pre-book some activities before your arrival - which is often advisable in the summer months. Isabel is a great help to all our guests.

7. Carla the housekeeper lives only a short drive from the house. If you decide you would like to have a lunch or a dinner at home, she can work with you to make that happen. We offer a fabulous range of local typical dishes including local wines and the prices are very reasonable. That way you can relax sit back and not worry - she even will go out and buy the ingredients!

8. We have collaborated with local activity providers who can now offer you as one of our guests a range of special exclusive offers, for example Boat Trip with Picnic on board, Visit to local winery and wine tastings, a day on a sailing boat and swimming in the river. Whatever you need let us know and we can help arrange it for you.

So where are we?

Amazingly - although the villa is in the Douro Valley is in the heartland of the interior of North Portugal - it is only 1 hour 15 minutes from Porto International Airport!

So what about the house itself?

Inside you can sense the fusion of traditional and contemporary comfort that has been created to make this a truly relaxing home.

The villa provides 3 bedrooms and normally sleeps 6 people

However, you can see from the pictures there is a nice office/study which can be presented with a sofa bed to provide an extra 2 sleeping places for a small supplement. Furthermore we can provide a fold down bed for an extra guest.

Every bedroom has their own private bathroom and the house is air conditioned throughout. The views from the two master bedrooms are simply stunning!

There is a very spacious lounge and dining area with wonderful views and the house has been designed to provide a comfortable experience throughout the year – with the fireplace and salamander making the house very cosy during the winter.

The kitchen is very well equipped should you decide to do your own cooking during your stay.

Outside Space

There is super swimming pool with stunning views across the valley for you to enjoy. It even lights up at night making it really fun to swim during the summer months

Above the pool you can see from the pictures is a 'chill out' space. With a 4 poster lounge area for you to lie down and just relax!

Across on the other side of the pool, is a fabulous games room. Equipped with pool table, and many board games and a hi-fi stereo. This is a great area to sit, chill, play and relax and not disturb some other guests in the main house. It's a great space and our guests love it!


The riverside village of Pinhao - which is 8 minutes by car - is a must! It is very, very cute, has good restaurants, great butcher, cafe etc. It also has a train station which has regular trains to Porto City Centre, making it an ideal way to spend a day trip.

There are plenty of superb vineyards all nearby with easy access - all the roads and connections are excellent and nothing is too far away for you to access and explore!

Wine Trip 2017

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this lovely villa. It was absolutely beautiful with a great view of the valley. The home is clean and very well decorated - a great place to call home for a few days or a few weeks. The housekeeper, Carla, is delightful and was very helpful with advice on places to go, food, and any other questions we had. We would definately stay there again.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Property is beautiful with amazing views set high among the vineyards in the Douro. This is a very special property with lots of love and attention given to every detail. Carla was extremely helpful and breakfast each day was delightful. She will even help with arranging tours. House is a 10-15 min drive from Pinhao where you can find amazing charcuterie, wine and cheese along with the most recognized names in Port (Croft, Fonseca). Coming from the US where the roads are wider, a few recommendations if you are not accustomed to driving high, one car European style mountain roads and small hill towns; you may want to consider hiring a driver familiar with the area. Also another item to note, many of the wineries require reservations and are located up steep narrow roads. We were glad that we hired a wine tour company to navigate and drive for us allowing us to further enjoy the Douro. We would love to go back.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We are still basking in the glow of a most perfect holiday at Case de Gouvaes. The villa, nestled in amongst the vineyards and olive trees and with every amenity imaginable, was ideal for 6 people in need of an escape. Carla put together amazing breakfast spreads (including home baked goodies) and we were treated to a most delicious catered dinner! We have definite plans to return to Gouvaes do Douro!!
