Lovely traditional villa overlooking a spectacular view.

  • 4 of 5

Joao Pedro was a gracious host whose family history contributed to the overall experience in the Duoro countryside. His families tawny port was delightful, thank you Joao! The villa is very spacious and can boast of lovely antique farmhouse furniture that is comfortable and gives you that authentic romantic villa experience. The grounds are immaculate. Truly beautiful. Joao Pedro is thorough in providing you with a great experience. We would definitely stay here again.

The perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

We were two branches of the same family visiting Portugal for the first time and it turned out that we chose the perfect base to explore what is a spectacular region.

Communication with Joao, the owner, before the holiday was excellent, as were his directions to the house, and the welcome he gave us couldn't have been better,. We had a detailed tour of the property and some brilliant tips on where to go and what to visit, finished off with a glass of Joao's own port.

The house is a perfect balance of traditional Portugese decorations/furnishing and modern comforts - it's been in the family for three generations. Add in a wonderful swimming pool area, (pool towels provided) and the breakfast service (bread,ham, cheese delivered regularly to the house in the morning and a large supply of juice coffee tea and milk), and we wanted for nothing.

The house is also conveniently located close to the shops and restaurants of Alijo.

We could have spent the whole week relaxing in the house, but the spectacular scenery of the Douro valley, boat trip on the river, visit to the port makers and so many lovely villages to see made for what was a perfect week. So many small things too like the lady in the village who gave us fresh figs to eat and the unforgettable visit to the bakery in Provesende.

We'd love to return, and would highly recommend this property to anyone.

Excelente fim de semana

Gostei, aliás gostamos, da estadia em Castedo do Douro. Desde a simpatia do Sr. João Carvalho às condições da casa com uma bela piscina e tudo extremamente limpo, com o necessário à disposição, foi muito bom. Experiência a repetir.
