All reviews guided tour well worth the visit across the road wine tasting on display park your car famous wine interesting visit gardens are beautiful family history formal gardens nice palace entrance fee interesting house main entrance baroque style fairy tale
For all the horrible Mateus wines 45 years ago I shared at the behest of my university dates. The menu of Mateus, Caesar and Lasagna over and over again. I had to see the palace that those fat little candle holding bottles came from.
The Palace built in the 18th century, probably from a design by famous italian, naturalized portuguese, architect Nicolau Nasoni, has a beautiful Baroque architecture and the gardens and pond around it are very nice.However, despite it being privately owned, the ticket price is overly expensive.
This tour gives an excellent glimpse into the history of Portugal’s wealthy vineyard owners. Our visit was hampered by rainy weather, but was nonetheless quite interesting. The tour guides were quite knowledgeable, and the mansion furnishings spoke well of the history.

We visited Casablanca day Mateus with a group from our riverboat cruise. The palace and gardens are beautiful. The tour was mediocre. Supposedly because the family resides there parts of the year the tour only goes to a handful of rooms. The tour guide was...More
No, you cannot taste Mateus Rosé here. The wine is named after the village and the only connection with the village is that the Count gave permission to the owners of a young vineyard to use the name before realising that the wine would be...More

There are many other places to visit in Portugal with wonderful, exciting people who welcome tourists.

For 8.5 Euro we had the...More
The original home of Mateus Rose (but no longer) this lovely Palazza only an hour or so from Porto is well worth a visit to see a style of life now moving on. We spent a couple of very pleasant hours in the house and...More
We only paid for visiting the gardens and viewing the outside of the baroque style chateau. We loved the walk through the gardens. Took numerous pictures as souvenirs. Worth the 8,50 euros p/p entrance fee.
This is a lovely small palace and is still occupied so only a few rooms are available to visit. We had an excellent guide who gave us a potted history of the place and pointed out the more interesting features in the rooms we visited....More
This manor house is best known for the image that appears on Mateus Rosé bottles (although I am led to beleive the wine has got nothing to do with the manor house itself). We were passing Villa Real and took a small diversion to visit...More
To be honest I am not sure! I purchased my ticket at the front gate, but there were a few tour busses there, so maybe you can book a tour?
Best of luck! And wishing you excellent weather for your outing (:
