This striking villa with its chill-out terrace has been designed to maximize the panoramic views.

Douro Villa I for 6 guests (+ 3 on request), is a well-equipped holiday villa with breakfast included daily plus cook service on request. It also offers modern-day conveniences such as a local mobile and a tablet, for guests to use as a reference guide to the region.

The villa spreads over 2 levels plus a chill-out panoramic terrace, and has a games room and swimming pool with stunning views.

When not exploring what the region has to offer, relaxing at the villa couldn’t be easier. Located on the edge of a peaceful rural hamlet, the most exciting moment of the day is the arrival of the bread delivery van in the morning! You’ll find yourself drawn to the outdoor areas to enjoy the spectacular vistas of steep vineyard terraces in the heart of the Douro Valley.

Right next-door is luxury Douro Villa II for 8 + 3 guests – both villas can be rented together for larger parties (benefitting from a special discount) or individually.

Included in one week rentals (or longer) at modern Douro Villa I, are added value extras such as: a complimentary “local gastronomy” meal; a visit to one of the Port producing Quintas with wine tasting; and weather permitting, a vineyard terraces picnic plus a two hour Rabelo boat ride on the Douro. The excellent and friendly staff speak Portuguese, French and English and as well as looking after your daily needs, double up as local tour guides or babysit on request.
