Traditional Family Home from 17th Century in Douro Valley
17th Century farmhouse set in 10 hectares of gardens, vineyards and orchards, with superb views over the Douro River. The approach is on a lovely winding track through the grounds. The property, with its orange, lemon and olive groves, has been in our family for several generations. The many prints, sketches and photographs lining the walls tell their own history of this Port wine region of Portugal. The property is 70km from the coast and Porto (home of the Port wine cellars and with its town centre designated as a Unesco World Heritage Site).
You will enjoy total privacy in a fully modernized house but still with its unique atmosphere, overlooking the most magnificent views. Possibility of transfer from/to Porto airport by previous arrangement, as well as guided sightseeing or wine tasting tours throughout Douro Valley’s Port wine producing estates and further up the river to the Foz Coa palaeolitical rock carvings, described by specialists as the biggest outdoor history museum.
Excellent retreat for families, artists and nature lovers.
A unique chance to enjoy this unspoiled region of Portugal and discover the environment in which port wine has been produced for centuries.
The estate is ideal for artists, families or groups of friends, with its combination of total privacy, many local attractions, superb views and vicinity to the historic city of Porto.
