During our two-week drive around Portugal, my husband and I chose to spend two nights in the Duoro wine region. It ended up being our favorite part of the trip. The area is just gorgeous! Our stay at Mesao Provesende was a highlight as well. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean. Jet was an amazing hostess! At her suggestion, we chose to have dinner at the home on our first night. There were eight other guests from a variety of countries staying there and having dinner that night. We had a great time sharing stories, eating Jet's tasty traditional Portuguese food and tasting wine (lots of it) from the region. At Jet's suggestion, we decided to hike down through the vineyards to Pinhao the next day. She provided us with a map and detailed directions. What a lovely way to spend a few hours! We had dinner again the next night. So much fun! We wished we could have stayed a few more days! Hopefully we will be back!

We stayed here for 5 nights as part of a walking tour. It was fantastic.
Very large old home centrally located with magic views, beautiful gardens, very comfortable spacious rooms & each had kitchen facilities and great bathrooms. Great swimming pool for a dip after a long walk.
We had breakfast, packed lunch & dinner each day with full wine & port tastings with dinner. What luxury - we were so well fed. Ronald provided wines and ports from across the Douro and was so knowledgeable.
Jet and Ronald did a wonderful job including catering for food allergies and wine preferences.
Would highly recommend a multi day stay.

We stayed with our friends for 5 nights at Mesao Provesende. Jet and Ronald were great hosts and the rooms were large and ours had a wonderful view over the most beautiful wisteria in flower . Just gorgeous. Jet cooked us 2 wonderful meals while we there and Ronald served wines to match , great value and great fun. We were lucky to do some walking using information from past guests. Provesende is a beautiful town and well worth exploring. We spent 1 day driving to Foz de Coa and had a tour of the rock art there, again well worth it and Jet helped us to organise a short boat tour on the Douro River. We were very lucky that Ronald had time to show us some Quintas in the area and we all felt that this was our most interesting and enjoyable day there. We cooked meals on 2 nights and Jet booked us into a local restaurant for the first night we arrived which was a wonderful introduction to the town. Great communication and a fabulous place to stay as a base to explore a beautiful part of Portugal.

We are 3 old codgers/ friends who have met regularly for the past 10 years to walk and take in new landscapes. The walks in this area are brilliant. However our visit of 4 nights was made exceptional by the sheer friendliness of our hosts Jet and Roland. Jet's food was just what was need after 6 hours of hiking. Roland's knowledge of Douro wine and port is outstanding and we learnt a lot while we supped and tasted many different vineyards produce. We will visit again. A delight.

Room tip: All rooms are good.

This is among the top 5 best places we have ever stayed in, The property is excellent, so nicely located, perfectly decorated and furnished and the view out the back is just amazing. From the moment we were shown into our room it was just Wow!!! Jet and Ronald are excellent hosts and they have worked very hard to make Mesao Provesende so wonderful. Our room was enormous, the bed so comfortable, the towels were soft and fluffy, everywhere was so clean. The breakfast was excellent. We have nothing negative to say. Jet cooked us a wonderful meal on our first evening which was complimented with Ronald's wine tasting expertise, It was a super evening,. Dinner was served on the terrace overlooking the amazing view. Breakfast is also served here weather permitting and there is also a lovely garden to sit in and watch the sunrise or count the stars. It is a lovely area to explore and we would recommend much more than a one night stop over. Seriously do try and stay a few days you will not regret it. We stayed for four nights and and enjoyed every one. Thank you so much Jet and Ronald for letting us stay in your beautiful house.
