The picturesque town of Pinhão is just a 20-minute walk from the villa. As well as being within a well-known wine-producing region, the city also has a rich port heritage and produces some of the best in the world. You can go on guided tours of wineries and sample some of the local tipples.

Pinhão is situated along the Douro River, meaning you can explore the area with a boat tour down the river. During a trip, you'll appreciate the steep vineyard terraces from a different perspective, and if you're lucky, you'll spot a range of wildlife along the way.

Another must-see attraction is Pinhão's railway station, built in 1937 and famous for its beautiful blue and white azulejo tiles that depict traditional Portuguese country life. There's also a bar and shop giving you the chance to try some wine and port.

Around 12 km from the villa is Provesende, a historic town that's full of interesting sites to explore. Walk down the winding streets, and you'll come across a 16th-century pillory and 18th-century Baroque church and fountain.

There are also many old manor houses that sit alongside more modest village cottages to show how rich the area was in past centuries.

A symbol of Portugal’s birth and growth as a nation, the Douro has long been the country’s lifeline. Leaving the pastel-coloured metropolis of Porto, venture through the enchanting countryside.

Following the winding Douro river east from Porto reveals one of the most scenic drives in Europe and Portugal’s premier wine region, the Douro Valley. With terraces of vines lining the riverbanks, Douro Valley holidays offer stunning hiking trails, beautiful viewpoints and a wonderful selection of peaceful retreats.

In the Douro, you will find quiet towns and villages, vineyards hugging the bends, castles from the time of the Reconquest and other places worthy of a stop to look far into the horizon.


Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

The open-plan layout and spacious rooms are ideal for families, with plenty of room for kids to run around and play on the terrace. In the property grounds themselves you will find a fabulous pool which offers a prime space for children to have fun and tire themselves out, while you look on from the comfort of a sun lounger in the warm glow of the Iberian sun, ensuring you have an opportunity to relax whilst keeping an eye on the little ones.

Around 65 km north of the villa is Pena Aventura Park in Ribeira de Pena. The drive takes a little over an hour, but it's definitely worth the long journey time. Fun for adults too, there's an exclusive zone for children where they can enjoy adventure walks through the woods, paintball and an adrenaline-fuelled zip wire through the treetops.
