We had a lovely time staying in this family owned villa. It sits on a tributary of the Douro river at the edge of the small town of pinhao (5 mins walk) and is an incredibly peaceful and pretty location. If you want the bright lights this is not the area for you but if you want peace and quiet in a beautiful valley with visits to port vineyards (and tasting of course) and the odd swim in the river to cool down then this is for you. The villa is very clean and beautifully presented. Francisco and Maria were very helpful with information from the minute we booked. They let use their kayaks and gave us tips on where to eat, buy food and where to visit. we had a lovely stay. Thank you for everything Francisco and Maria!

Amazing house with everything you need, spacious, clean and great views. BBQ spot, riverside terrace and even kayaks. Very friendly and helpful owners. I would recommend this house to anyone. Right in the heart of the Douro valley and within walking distance of the lovely village of Pinhao. Great stay.

About the neighbourhood
The perfect harmony between man and nature makes the Douro Region, the most beautiful wine region in the world. Here is produced wine for more than two thousand years!
