This is a most comfortable house with marvellous views of this unique area. It is located on the north side of the Douro, high above the river. The spacious patio provides more than ample outside living space and the interior of the house is modern and well equipped. The hosts are most gracious and helpful and it was a great pleasure to meet them. Unfortunately we had only six days here. We would certainly return to this property should we be fortunate enough to get back to the Douro.
We had an amazing holiday in the most glorious location. We were a party of 7 - ourselves, our two adult children their partners and our little granddaughter.
There was something for everyone. Our granddaughter adored the pool and had at least 4 dips a day - another week and she’d have been swimming unaided (she’s only 3). The villa is really well equipped so we enjoyed preparing meals there. The electric orange squeezer was a particular hit.
We had day trips to Pinhao by train (spectacular) and the young adults had a day trip to Porto. There were many very pretty town and villages round about and we enjoyed a few meals out.
The Roman Road on the steep path above the villa was well worth a visit. We enjoyed walking down the paths to visit the cafes in Mosterio for ice creams and watching the little goat flocks at the Quinta on the way down.
We found Fernando an excellent host. Our instructions were all very clear. Helena was a super housekeeper.
So a beautiful and relaxing holiday in a fabulously well equipped and stunning villa.
I would recommend it to anyone
