Gorgeous views of the Douro river from a charmy and luxurious hotel. The restaurant is cozy and food excellent! Great wine produced in the Quinta and staff could not be more warm! I am planning to come back very soon and definitely will stay there.

A tricky drive at dusk with rain rain and more rain and very long. Luckily in the morning we got a bit of sun so we could admire the beautiful grounds and view. It must be lovely in the Summer to swim in the pool overlooking the vineyards and the escarpment. In the middle of winter however it was a... More

Difficult to find along very narrow roads with steep drops and non existent barriers. But worth it when you get there. Superb grounds and views, especially from the swimming pool. The walk around=d the vineyard was worth the effort and the wine tour is a must. We enjoyed the matched food and wine. Expensive but worth it.

What’s good: A positively ambrosial setting high up on the Alta Douro valley escarpment looking down over the graceful river and surrounded by endless grapevine terraces marching up the valley ramparts – the product of a millennium of viticulture. The handsome 18th century whitewashed stone and log winery buildings have been sympathetically transformed into a boutique luxury hotel that feels... More

Although finca nova is far from everything and quite hard to find, it is worth the detour. The hotel is beautiful, the view is incredible and the wines are delicious. The waiter was very friendly. I did a great wine-tasting and got good explanations from the someillier.

After a stunning drive along the Duoro river we arrived at this beautiful retreat overlooking the valley of vines and the deep blue river a long way below. We enjoyed a bottle of wine by the pool while soaking in the sun and the gorgeous view. The rooms are comfortable with modern services and the wines and food were delicious.

We wanted to stay somewhere special to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and the Quinta Nova met all of our expectations! Its true that the drive up is quite an adventure along narrow windy roads with no barriers (Tiago at the hotel reassured us that nobody has ever gone over the edge …..) but its well worth the journey as...

Wow! Worth a trip to this hotel. We visited in August 2014 and the drive gives a preview of whats to come. Located overlooking the river Douro, this hotel has the most stunning views. All rooms have all modern amenities, and the hotel has excellent staff, very knowledgeable about the surrounding areas, activities and what to do, as well as... More

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
