Quaint Douro Valley Farmhouse on Working Vineyard

"You can buy wine made at the winery by the glass or the bottle during your stay." - Reviewed by Lisa

A taste of traditional Douro Valley charm. This renovated farmhouse is located on a centuries-old working vineyard on the left bank of the Douro River equidistance from the towns of Régua and Lamego. A fabulous base for those looking for wine-tasting holidays, hiking getaways or to simply escape into nature and learn more about one of the oldest cultures in Europe.

Quite literally surrounded by rows and rows of vines, the farmhouse and winery in the heart of the oldest demarcated wine region in the world has belonged to the same family since 1885, having been rebuilt and enlarged at the beginning of the 20th century. Today, tradition merges with comfort and elegant interior design to prepare the farmhouse for guests and wine-lovers alike.

More akin to the experience you get in a boutique hotel, expect your stay to feel like you have arrived at your home away from home with the option(€) to have all your meals prepared during your stay (typical local meals).
