One of the most beautiful houses in Viana. The rooms are really nice and super confortable. Everything was super clean and I will definitely go back. Joao, the owner, is really nice and gives the best recommendations for restaurants and places to visit.

Well equipped cottages, with courtyards to relax in surrounded by vinyards and green forests to walk/run in.

This beautiful place, tucked out of the way is a delight for the soul. The silence, the casual style and the perfect setting, make you relax totally by.But just 10 minutes drive and you are in the heart of Vienna do Castello.

Really thorough welcome, carefully shown everything and given helpful local information. Shown around the Quinta showing what was available to us.

Perfect place to rest and recharge your batteries. Beautifully decorated, comfortable and clean. House location is great, only 40min drive from Porto, very easy to reach. Ask the nice owner for advice regarding restaurants and bars nearby, you will not be disappointed.
