17th Century farmhouse set in 10 hectares of gardens, vineyards and orchards, with superb views over the Douro River. The approach is on a lovely winding track through the grounds.
The property, with its orange, lemon and olive groves, has been in our family for several generations. The many prints, sketches and photographs lining the walls tell their own history of this Port wine region of Portugal.
