Central Douro Valley Home with Private Pool and Stunning Views

"An eclectic mix of design styles all create a comforting home-away-from-home feel surrounded by natural drama." - Reviewed by Lisa

When journeying to the Douro Valley, the main attraction is the river itself and finding a good base to enjoy all the natural dramatic beauty and stunning surroundings. Look no further! With an enviable location and spectacular views, this modern family home offers up comfortable spaces and marvelous vistas.

Designed to maximize the outdoors in all seasons, you’ll find sheltered dining spots for chillier evenings or to hide from the full force of the sun, a sparkling pool for lazy summer days when temps soar, and a hidden lawn and secret hideaway for quiet morning coffees or playtimes with the young ones.

An excellent location at the center of the valley, this Douro Valley rental home offers plenty of options for wine tastings, river cruises, hiking and sightseeing. It is the ideal place to return to after busy days. Get the BBQ going, enjoy some tasty local sausages, sit back, relax with a glass of Port or local wine and never tire of watching the great golden river roll by.

A cozy family home with ample spaces for all.
