Why Verissimo chose Los Arribes

The house is located in the Douro region, in northern Portugal, which is one of the most famous wine regions of the country, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the birthplace of Port wine, and the first demarcated wine region in the world.

you will be able to see the typical landscapes of Douro area: Douro river, wine resorts(Quintas), plantations of olive trees, orange trees, almond trees (best time to see these trees in flowers is February /March)

And you will discover the real flavour of an orange when you will eat one direct from the tree .You can find mature oranges more or less all year long.The smell of flowers of orange trees is also wonderful.

Best New Year so far!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented the appartment for the New year Eve and two further days and it was the right choice. The village is absolutely amazing, situated in picturesque valley, with olive and orange trees at the slopes. It is very quiet, free of shops and people crowds area. The house itself is on two levels- first with two bedrooms and the bathroom and the upper one - dining room with the fireplace, table, sofa, kitchenette,the other bathroom and the small courtyard with barbeque oven. As it is built from the stone- the winter period could be chilly for few hours untill the fire and the air heater will make the house warmer. The house equipped by everything you need, but you should care of your food provision ahead, as there are no shops or cafes or any other meal providing places. We had all in advance and spent the perfect holiday. So the only problem we could mention- sometimes the hot water does not work properly, may be because it is possible to switch on simultaneously just one shower, not other water sourses, may be because of winter period, but it does not ruin the cozy , like at home atmosphere that lives at the house.

Rustikales Ferienhaus in absolut ruhiger Umgebung

  • 4 of 5

Rustikales Ferienhaus über zwei Etagen mit Terrasse und kleinem Garten mit Olivenbäumen. Man merkt an der Einrichtung, daß die Eigentümer hier selbst auch Zeit verbringen. Es ist alles sehr geschmackvoll und völlstänig eingerichtet.

Das einzige Manko ist, daß eines der beiden Schlafzimmer kein Fenster hat.

Ein Auto ist unbedingt erforderlich, das Haus befindet sich in einem ganz kleinen Ort am Douro nahe der spanischen Grenze.

Muito boa

  • 5 of 5

A casa é muito simpática, com uma decoração bonita e acolhedora, e tem tudo para uma estadia confortável (a casa estava um bocadinho fria à chegada mas passando o primeiro dia torna-se aprazível, apesar do aquecimento não ser central e nos corredores sentir-se um pouco frio). A localização é excelente para explorar a zona, que tem uma tranquilidade e beleza natural impressionantes. Muito recomendável para passar uns dias de descanso.

férias junto ao Douro Internacional

  • 4 of 5

Passamos 1 semana em Mazouco, à beira do Douro Internacional e soube a pouco.

A casa está muito bem decorada e é muito confortável e acolhedora, com um pequeno terraço muito agradável.

A aldeia de Mazouco é uma pequena aldeia no coração do parque do Douro Internacional e de lá é muito fácil chegar a todo o lado.

Os proprietários foram muito simpáticos e sempre prestáveis.

A paisagem e os arredores são únicos e fenomenais.

Au coeur d'un village de la vallée du Douro

  • 4 of 5

Située dans un petit village authentique et chaleureux, la maison est coquette et accueillante et la terrasse très agréable. Les conseils et l'hospitalité des voisins très sympathiques nous ont été précieux comme la disponibilité du propriétaire. Idéal pour un séjour famille avec des enfants aimant les animaux...cet isolement n'est pas synonyme d'un calme monacal et la vie du village commence très tôt le matin ...sieste à prévoir entre les visites, nombreuses dans cette région magnifique combinant patrimoine viticole et peintures rupestres avec les paysages grandioses de la vallée et l'hospitalité simple et bienveillante de ses habitants.

Car: necessary

From Porto, take the highway to "VILLA REAL" or "BRAGANCA" ,follow IP4, after VILLA REAL (do not take the exit Villa Real downtown)then follow the direction of "MIRANDA DE DOURO" IC5

Stay on the IC5 until exit 27 , and take IP2 direction "TORRE DE MONCORVO".

When you have reached "TORRE DE MONCORVO", drive through this small city , and follow the direction of 'Freixo Espada a Cinta', then take a road on your left , when you will see the panel with MAZOUCO on it . Go down, go always down in the village. The house is almost at the end of the village on your right with a red door.
