These three properties were built out of shale from the Quinta and blend into the landscape beautifully. They’re set far enough from each other to offer complete privacy, but can be hired together if you’re a large group.
Kind and welcoming Luis and his daughter live on-site and will welcome you with regional drinks and nibbles, and provide breakfast made with local produce – cured meats, cheeses, eggs, home-made cakes and jams. The main house is a show-stopper, with floor-to-window ceilings, a basement spa and a heated saltwater swimming pool, and the other two are studio apartments with equally fabulous views.
Cook for yourself in the well-equipped kitchen, engage the services of a chef or head to Pinhão, 15 minutes’ drive or 40 minutes’ walk, for a great restaurant called Taberna do Rio; Rui Paula’s famous DOC restaurant is just 30 minutes away. You’re surrounded by vineyards producing world-class wines and ports, most of them between 15 to 30 minutes’ away.
