Quinta da Picaria is a very nice place to have a peacefull rest and a good base to tdo short daily trip in the Oportp area and Douro Valley.
The rooms are clean and nice, the breakfast is good and the owners are available to satisfy the request of the client.
Quinta da Picaria is ina very green country.

We found out this charming place in a blog about Portugal summer holidays. The first contact with this farm was the magnificent relation with nature as well as the wonderful people that receive as has Kings in our own Kingdom. The owner Maria Jose his a charming person and french, english speaker. The amazing natural water fountain that flows is a great plus. We spend some quality time that realy means a lot for us.
Thanks Maria Jose, we hope to came back one day.
All the best for you and your husband.
Just charming

We chose this rural inn because it was geographically in the center of several places we wanted to daytrip to in northern Portugal. We saw it advertised on the Inns of Portugal website and booked 4 nights. The quinta is a lovely quiet farm/estate behind a closed gate in a small village. The rooms are pleasantly furnished, clean and attractive. Every evening when we came home we found some treat waiting for us in our room : apples from the farm, a bottle of Porto, roasted chestnuts, 2 small cakes. We were greeted very nicely by the owner Maria Jose on our arrival but never saw her again. The housekeeper, who was the only other person from the quinta we saw throughout our stay, was very sweet and tried her best, but spoke absolutely no English. When we had questions that we wanted to ask before setting out each day (where was the train station in the nearby town, routing advice, where to park in Porto, what the weather forecast was...) there was no to ask. Again, though the web site stated there was a dining room, there were no meals other than (a generous and appealing set out) breakfast each morning. We found a pamphlet put out by the local municipality that listed restaurants but there were no maps and again, no one to ask. I was surprised that other than a tiny soap sample that was on the sink the first day, no toiletries were provided. (We did get a bar of soap after pantomiming to the housekeeper on the 3rd day.) I'd say that if I were Portoguese or at least spoke Portuguese, this would be a lovely place to stay. But as a foreign tourist who chose to stay in an inn advertised on an English web site that claimed that English was spoken, I was a disappointed.
