A wonderful three days in one of the most spectacular settings in the world. A charming house with every convenience, a beautiful pool, fresh figs and lemons from the enchanting garden, stunning views everywhere we turned and a our proud host, Francisco, was welcoming and generous with his time and information about the area. Just heaven!
Francisco is a great host who knows a lot about the area which really helps to the most out of your holiday.
The house is situated on the best spot along the river with the most beautiful views. Although it was built centuries ago it is well maintained and very comfortable.
Real value for money!
Fransisco was very helpfulin offering advice on activities in the area and the farmhouse was very clean and tidy.Great views over the river too
My family and I have just got back from a wonderful holiday in Portugal, having stayed at this beautiful old farmhouse high above the Douro river. It was stunning - I couldn't stop staring at the view across the valley, over the river far below, the steep hills dotted with tiny houses. The farmhouse is surrounded by privately owned land, so it is not overlooked at all. The owner and his wife live in a nearby house, but they are very helpful and friendly, and also tactful, not wanting to get in the way of our holiday. The pool was lovely, and a good size, and what a location! The house is surrounded by orange and lemon trees on steep terraces, so we had freshly squeezed orange juice or lemonade every day. Bliss. We will be going back if we can. The only downside to the farmhouse is the surrounding roads. We have never driven such bendy roads! Terrifying, and requiring total concentration. But you do get used to them!
