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

Douro Villa I for 6 guests (+ 2 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 meal by a private chef or a 3-hour river boat tour with picnic on board, plus another “local gastronomy” meal and a visit to one of the Port producing Quintas with wine tasting. 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.

"The villa is ideal, has everything you need, and is well located in the Douro Valley. We had a great stay, and Carla (housekeeper) was brilliant at looking after us. Will definitely be back and recommend to everyone! Thank you."

“Thank you Carla for looking after us and for organising our lunches and suppers out! This is such a special part of Portugal: we specially loved the winery tour followed by a delicious picnic and the stunning boat trip on the Douro River. Also have to mention the amazing views from the property.”                   

The Clarksons

UK (June 2018)


“We have just spent a wonderful week in the Douro during the "vindima" and this villa was the perfect spot from which to enjoy the Douro Valley. Architecturally the house is amazing, with a great pool/games room and the views are nothing short of breath-taking. But best of all was a good hearty breakfast to set you up for a day of wine tasting! We highly recommend you also ask for dinner to be cooked for you, as you will not be disappointed! We really felt we had the best of both worlds - our own space but with some service too and the staff were always happy to help. We will definitely be back in the Douro next year...”

 "We have had a wonderful week, relaxing, reading, playing cards, eating and drinking in the sun, looking at the beautiful scenery! Estrela and Carla made us very welcome and were very helpful and attentive during our stay. We had a delicious welcome meal on our 1st night and Estrela's special orange cake. Thank you for a great holiday, we hope to return."

The Fishers

“What a fantastic house! We have enjoyed every minute of this beautiful place. The views are spectacular, the décor and special touches are perfect, and the peace and quiet made this one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever had. We especially appreciated Carla’s incredible hospitality – her recommendations were exactly what we wanted, her willingness to make reservations, arrange for a delicious dinner in, and her breakfasts, made for the perfect experience! Thanks for sharing this beautiful home; we hope to be back!”
