We visited Villar d'Allen which is known for its magnificent grove of camellias. The owner, Dona Isa, is an expert on camellias and one is named the John Allen Camellia. The first floor of the house is kept as it was in 1840. John Allen, educated at Georgetown USA, got into the port production and trade in the 1800s. Dona Isa learned the secrets of blending port from her father-in-law.

The Allens are extremely thoughtful, gentle and passionate people. You will see an amazing natural garden that's 150 years in the making. They are pockets of different gardens: Oriental; rain forest ferns and tallest pines.

A beautiful garden with lots of history beautifully recounted by the owners Alberto and Isaura, both experts in their field that made us feel so welcome. I wish I had found this garden earlier, a true gem in Porto.

Our group from Road Scholar were overwhelmed with all that was shard by Alfredo & Isa. The garden, the home and information of 7 generations of family who originally came from England. Truly a site to be experienced and enjoyed! -Mariano from Detroit

This Quinta was one of the most charming and tranquil gardens and houses that I have ever visited. Apart from the stunning gardens with the fantastic collection of Camellias the house is full of items of interest and history. The Quinta is still in the same family Allen, and their love and care shine out as does the excellence of their Port Wines. Definitely a must for all lovers of beauty and culture, and I was lucky to visit with Martin Randall Travel.
