Holiday Rental House
17th Century farmhouse set in 25 acres of gardens, with superb views over the Douro River, reached by a lovely winding track through the grounds. The property, with its orange, lemon and olive groves, has been in our family for several generations and the many prints, sketches and photographs lining the walls tell their own history of the 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). The house has been fully modernised whilst still retaining its unique charm and atmosphere. This is the place for the ultimate relaxing escape, where you will enjoy total privacy whilst taking in the most magnificent views. Nearby, there is also a thermal retreat which offers spa ...17th Century farmhouse set in 25 acres of gardens, with superb views over the Douro River, reached by a lovely winding track through the grounds.
