Reviewed June 7, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We were very pleased with our stay. It is a lovely home with pool, game room area, and warm living spaces. The views of the area are spectacular. The house is built on the footprint of a pre-existing structure as required in this UNESCO heritage area. It is very special. Not to be forgotten, Carla , is there preparing breakfast in the morning and has a wealth of knowledge. I want to go back!

“Douro Valley 2017”
Reviewed October 17, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful villa. It sits high on a hill above the Douro valley and the views are exceptional. The house is clean, modern, well stocked and a perfect home away from home. The pool area is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the view over a nice glass of wine. The housekeeper is a delight and big help in making reservations and plans for the day.

The location is excellent for venturing out to local wineries, river tours, and other activities. The winding narrow road to the top of the hill does require a steely nerve, but it's worth every stressful minute! We would love to return.

“Outstanding Villa in wonderful Location”
Reviewed July 10, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Just coming to the end of a week at this wonderful villa in Covas de Douro. The villa is modern with very comfortable en suites and common areas. The terrace and the view from the terrace are both wonderful, great view of the valley below, good pool, lots of outdoor space. Breakfast has been provided each day by the wonderful Estrella who has also helped with restaurant reservations, cakes, running routes - everything to make the stay relaxing. The villa is high up in the valley and thus a bit of a journey on narrow roads from Pinhao - but this rewards us with seclusion and wonderful views.
