To share with friends and family, on barbecue afternoons and revels on the terrace facing the river, to taste the green wine of Tormes, or in quiet reading at sunset. At night "(...) is nothing more beautiful, and more will prattle that a high in the hills, looking at the stars! ...

Breathe in with the "natural life of Baião", enjoy the riverside place of Pala with its orange groves, practice water sports, walk along the Roman sidewalk of Ribadouro, refresh yourself in the pure waters of the river Bestança (Cinfães) and the river beach of the river Ovil. Follow the route of the Romanesque - visit the Monastery of Ancede (founded in the 19th century). XII) and the bridge of Esmoriz. Scroll through the "Jacinto Path", starting from Aregos station (Tormes) and go up the mountain to Tormes. Discover the villages lost in time (Mafómedes), the Marão mountain range, the Carvalhal native of Reixela, the Abobreira mountain range with its megalithic monuments and delight with the local wines and gastronomy.

Finally, let yourself be struck by the vineyard Douro catching the train at the station of Aregos "(...) the small station of Tormes (...), the river, among rocks, with its bright sunflowers ..." * and continue to Pocinho, on the Douro line, on a journey through the "wonderful kingdom" of Miguel Torga

superb location, great getaway, beautiful and well stocked house, very warm and friendly hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here. The house is located in a great spot, fantastic view, tastefully decorated, practical, and lots of space so everybody can find their own corner. It is also fully equipped and at our request the host even provided mountain bikes free of charge!

There are lots to see/do in the area and you will find a ton of information available at the house which came in handy. Unfortunately our stay was only 5 days .

We went for long morning hikes and stayed out on the terrace at night enjoying the star studded sky and the view of distant villages in the surrounding hills

its a bit remote but that is not necessarily a problem when one is prepared well.

We feel the house could do with a washing machine since there are no coin operated laundry facilities in the town nearby

Definitely recommend this to friends traveling to the Porto region.

Beautiful,tranquil house with spectacular views over the Douro Valley

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house set high above the Douro Valley with spectacular views from its large terrace .The sound of church bells add to the feeling of calmness and serenity.The house is large, comfortable ,well equipped and extremely clean.The railway station at Aregos is a short drive away .We used the station to travel to Pinhao and Regua ,which were beautiful with exceptional views on the way .Porto is an hour away by train and worth a visit.

Orlanda and João are lovely people who gave us a warm welcome to their spectacularly beautiful home and made us feel very welcome .Communication both before and during our stay was excellent.We hope to visit your beautiful home again one day.Thank you Orlanda and João..

"Nous avons bien apprécié notre sejour dans votre maison.

Avec une superbe vue sur le Douro, et au calme, nous étions deux couples amis ayant apprécié le charme et le confort de votre maison. Tout etait très bien et nous en garderons un très bon souvenir. La région est magnifique, ce fut un vrai plaisir.

Merci de votre accueil et de votre confiance.
