This Quinta was recommended to visit by our hotel (among others). After a lovely drive out to the area, we were going to have lunch and purchase wine from the shop. We walked into the outdoor dining area to find someone as no one was at the front desk. We stopped a moment to take in the great view. A... More

The hotel allows for several hiking trails, clearly marked, visits to the winery and wine tasting, very well explained by courteous staff and excellent training. The pool, although... More

WOW! This was an utterly fantastic vineyard hotel. Highly recommended for a luxurious, relaxed break away from the world. A fabulous infinity pool overlooks the most spectacular views of the stunning valley. The rooms are wonderful - very clean, classy, and well equipped. Wifi is a bit weak. It is more of a hotel than a vineyard, so probably not... More

Location, view, service, food, quietness, lanscape... Getting there is not easy, but worth the effort. It is like getting in another world. Time stops... and starts at a different pace. We will certainly be back, with friends...

My wine club from the Algarve recently returned from a fabulous visit to the Douro, staying at Quinta Nova. We filled the entire hotel and really received the royal treatment.

We stayed 3 nights at the hotel, the road up there is a small windy road but the views are amazing and if you drive slowly it is very safe. There is plenty of parking. This is a hotel on a vineyard and therefore we were not expecting anything around it, the views are fantastic and there are plenty of... More

My husband and I just returned from a two night stay that this Quinta. First, we need to state that if you have a car - LEAVE it either in Peso de Regua or Pinhao and take the train (about 7-10 from either location). If you feel the need to drive be forewarned it is a hair-raising experience. If you... More

First of all, thank you for your words. We regret that your experience was below your expectations. Although we find your observations helpful, some of the negative aspects you point out, like the isolation, were probably due to a lack of information on your destiny (Douro Valley). We are located in a UNESCO area, with simple roads among the slopes... More

This is a marvelous experience. Not your typical hotel, rather like staying with friends who happen to own an historic vineyard with a lovely manor house. Comfortable guest rooms and gracious common rooms. Great dinner.

We chose this hotel for a quiet and romantic weekend but without having the coldness of most of hotels. We were delighted when we arrived there.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Quinta Nova - Luxury Winery House was born in 2005, reconstructed from an old eighteenth century manor house designed in full harmony with nature and tradition. Hotel visitors are able to live the true spirit of the Douro Valley by accompanying the Quinta's wine activities, trying out the walking routes and discovering the Quinta's historical spots. Reencountering tradition means that our guests can choose amongst the 11 rooms - all of which have a panoramic view onto the vineyards and onto the river, and decorated in the region's style but ensuring complete comfort. ... more   less
