With breathtaking views of sprawling vineyards, olive groves and surrounding picturesque villages, Moradia Sabrosa is a luxurious villa situated in the heart of the world-famous Douro Valley wine region.

This quirky looking villa is a typical example of a local schist stone-built home and has been extensively renovated from an old ruin. Many pieces of the antique furniture are Portuguese in origin, creating a real sense of heritage that sits beautifully alongside the characterful décor throughout. Large feature windows have been included to make the most of the stunning views and they flood the villa with natural light.

Set over split level, the living/dining area is extensive and features a range of comfortable seating options, including large leather sofas and colourful plush armchairs. A period fireplace has been converted into an attractive television centre with DVD player and selection of DVD's. Other entertainment options include a pool table and music centre with iPod dock. There's a small table and chairs for having a cup of tea and a chat, with the larger dining table and chairs for up to eight people being in a more formal stone-walled area with wood-burning stove. Patio doors lead onto the outside space and a further living area across the terrace from the swimming pool. The fully fitted kitchen features charming beams and some original features for an authentic, rustic feel. There's also a small table and chairs for a quick breakfast before heading out for the day.

To the first floor are two double bedrooms with either an ensuite bathroom or ensuite shower room. Both also have a door opening onto a balcony that runs the full length of the villa. A twin bedroom has an ensuite shower room and extra accommodation is provided with a studio room with sofa bed that sleeps two adults or two children.

At the heart of the villa is a terrace that wraps around an irregular-shaped swimming pool, with plenty of sun loungers for soaking up the unspoilt country views. A modern table and chairs are ideal for al fresco dining or for socialising with a pre-dinner drink.

Local staff live in a nearby village and are available to pamper you during your stay. They include a maid who will clean the house twice a week and at an extra cost, a cook to prepare lunches and/or dinners. For a great start to every morning, daily breakfast is included in the rental price.

What you should know…

  • The villa is split level to the interior with many steps between the different areas of the outside space, making it unsuitable for wheelchair users and those with mobility issues
  • Some parts of the terrace around the swimming pool are narrow, so take extra care with young children
  • Dinners prepared by a local cook include Douro wine and port and are available upon request

Situated within one of the world's oldest wine regions in a charming village setting, Moradia Sabrosa is the perfect base from which to explore the various wine-producing villages that populate the Douro Valley area. There are several private farms that offer food and wine tastings and these can be arranged during your stay.

Provesende can be easily reached after a short drive on roads cut into the steep hills of the valley. Within the county of Sabrosa, this small, ancient village enjoys an elevated position and quiet, winding streets. Many of the historical buildings remain untouched and highlights include the 18th century Baroque church and fountain. Pretty little village houses sit alongside crumbling 17th century aristocratic manors for an atmospheric feel as you stroll round the main square and surrounding streets. Watch the world go by as you sit outside the friendly cafe with a coffee or enjoy a leisurely lunch at the restaurant serving a range of local dishes.

Around 40 km south of the villa is the town of Lamego. Full of history, architecture and culture, there are fascinating sights around every corner. The most striking is the Santuario Nossa Senhora dos Remedios, an 18th century pilgrimage shrine set upon a hill and reached via a monumental stairway. The building features several terraces of beautiful Baroque structures and designs, and the views down over the town's wide avenue and surrounding countryside are simply amazing.

Within the historical centre of Lamego are several other must-see attractions, including Lamego Museum with its huge collection of ancient artefacts and gold chapel and a 12th century cathedral. There's no shortage of cafes and restaurants in which to take a break after a long day of sightseeing, with many dotted along the attractive avenue in the heart of the town.

ABOUT THE DOURO

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.

Kids

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

Older children will love Moradia Sabrosa and its choice of inside and outside spaces for quiet afternoons. The games room with pool table is sure to be a hit, as is the large, private swimming pool on the extensive terrace. Families with young children will especially appreciate the services of a maid and cook to help make their stay even more relaxing.

Naturwaterpark is around 25 minutes away by car and is a fantastic eco-friendly adventure park. It offers a water park, mini golf, farm, paintball and a restaurant serving family-friendly snacks and meals. It's a great place to take younger children for a fun day out in this otherwise relatively quiet area of northern Portugal.
