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. Estrela, 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 - Estrela 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. Estrela organises with you upon arrival when you would like to enjoy your complimentary welcome meal which includes local wines.

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 - Yes your very own 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. Estrela 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, which is in the heartland of the interior of Portugal - it is only 1 hour 20 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 double 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.

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

There is a very spacious lounge and dining area with wonderful views and the house has been designed to provide a wonderful comfortable experience throughout the year - with fireplaces and salamanders making the house very cozy during the winter.

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

Outside Space

There is superb 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!

Locally

The riverside 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 Center, 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 !

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!!
