Agritourism

In 2006, the farm house was renovated and transformed into Agritourism. The house was designed and built in a way so the guests can be in constant touch with the landscape and the vineyards in the Demarcated Douro Region.

From the 9 rooms overlooking the Douro Valley, the guests can feel the soul of the vineyards and the wine, taking in the greatness of the Douro River and the centuries-old man-made terraced schistous slopes.

The 20 hectares of vineyards, the chapel, the granite lagares and the wine cellars where the wine ages help the guests understand the feelings and traditions of the people from this valley.

Our guests are accompanied by the host family and winemaker. The guests can acquire all the knowledge and traditional methods of making Port and Douro wines which are produced in the Quinta, as well as the possibility of doing a course in vines and wine tasting.
