Armamar is absolutely charming and is situated between Peso da Regua and Pinhao in the Douro Valley. The villa is central in the town and only 300 meters from a superb supermarket. There are some wonderful restaurants including DOC, an excellent restaurant on the Douro river offering high-level innovative meals with an optimum wine list and wonderful views of boats sailing by. The area is known for its delicious cuisine as well as its ports and wines. Some typical dishes are bacalhau (salt cod), roasted suckling pig and octopus salad. You should also sample some olive oils and honey.
 
The Douro Valley is a majestic wilderness, full of fantastic terraces of vineyards and olive trees and is one of the oldest demarcated wine regions of the world. The breath-taking landscapes are incredible. Miradouro Sao Leonardo da Galafura, between Peso da Regua and Pinhao offers one of the most amazing viewpoints in the whole region. The viewpoint of Sao Domingos offers a stunning view of the imposing Marao Mountain.
 
You really should take a trip to Lamego as it is so stunning. The attractive blue and white tiled steps by Shrine of Nossa Senhora dos Remedios draw your eye, and the Cathedral de Lamengo, founded in 1129 is absolutely magnificent.
 
Tarouca is small village quite close to Lamego where you can admire the Sao Joao de Tarouca Monastery. It was the first monastery built in Portugal in 1152. You will definitely travel back in time.
 
At Pinhao you can take a wonderful rabelo boat ride and enjoy the breath-taking trip along the river seeing gorgeous vineyards and terraces along the way to the Tua area. You can also visit the railway station and view the ancient tiles dedicated to the cultivation of wines.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages

Villa Armana is perfect for children. The enclosed pool and terrace area is wonderful for them to play in. They will definitely try and race you to the impressive sun loungers though if they are tired at the end of the day!
 
Children will love the wonderful rabelo boat trips from Pinhao. These flat, wide, wooden barcos rabelos were used for centuries to transport port barrels down the river, and they are great for family trips out along the river. You can also arrange canoeing, kayaking and paddle-boarding on the Douro river which they will love.
 
Many of the vineyards have special spots for wonderful family picnics. They won’t taste the wines but they will enjoy fun and games during the day, and if it is harvest time they will absolutely love crushing grapes with their feet.
 
A train trip along the river is also a fantastic day out. The views are amazing.
 
If you decide to travel into Porto children will be thoroughly entertained by the beach at Matosinhos and possibly surf lessons you can arrange, the interactive museum The World of Discoveries the Crystal Palace Gardens.
