★★★★★ 3 reviews

“Loved the feel of a modern home in an Old-World shell. But the best part is just gazing out at the river at the end of the garden! The ideal location for visiting the Douro Valley.” - Reviewed by Lisa

Carefully camouflaged on the verdant banks of the Douro River, this magnificent location is the perfect venue for an incredible family get-together or to host a special event. Reach out and it feels as if you can touch the vines on the opposite river bank.
This home is masterfully situated to totally immerse yourself in all that the Douro area has to offer: Breathtaking views up and down the river, wine and Port tastings galore right on your doorstep, hikes, sunset sailing…the list goes on.
This Douro Valley luxury rental home has been painstakingly restored to maintain the existing olde-worlde charm while adding new world conveniences and infrastructure. With restoration, the home has been reborn and exudes comfortable, cool, modern interiors with lots of light, open-plan living and five-star bedroom suites. Still, with its old stone walls, the original wine-crushing wells and carefully-restored, unique features – it’s easy to imagine how this property lived its former life.
To further enhance your authentic Douro experience, this farmhouse comes with wonderful staff at your service, including a traditional in-house chef (€) and a friendly housekeeper. Wake up to a delicious breakfast prepared with local produce or enjoy a fabulous picnic lunch by the pool; the charming staff are on hand to tailor a unique experience for you and your group.
