surroundings

The Quinta is located on the North side of the River Douro just outside the village of Santa Marinha de Zezere. It is one kilometer from the river and a bridge which crosses over to the larger town of Resende. The views from the Quinta are outstanding, stretching over a large section of the Douro Valley. The Quinta lies on the dividing line between the production of Vinho Verde and the vines used for Port wine, so is an ideal base to discover the viticulture of the area. Twenty minutes away is the town of Peso de Regua, the main town of the Port wine growing area. We can offer advice about which estates to visit and even organise a wine tasting trip if you wish.

N.B. A car is essential for this property as there is no public transport.

Description

This house, Casa de Mata (Forest House), lies within a large wine producing Quinta (Estate). Surrounded by the vines that are used for vinho verde, the Quinta is magnificently located high up in the Douro Valley, offering magnificent views over the river and the region.

The Quinta also includes a smaller cottage to rent (sleeps four) as well as a manor house, which dates back to 1720 and has all the characteristics of Portuguese Baroque style. The manor house is a guest house with rooms available for bed and breakfast. You are however welcome to have a look inside, and the manor's small chapel is especially interesting to see. The three properties share many facilities, including a large swimming pool, volley ball and tennis courts and a games room. The view from the pool area, as well as from a small tower with hammocks, is pheonomenal, and what makes this place very special.

Casa de Mata is a spacious four bedroom house between vineyards and woodland. There is a large kitchen with all modern appliances, as well as a lounge and dining area. All the bedrooms are en suite and are furnished in typical Portuguese style. The house has its own balcony, barbeque facilities and parking space. Removed from the manor house, it is private but still close enough to the pool and other facilities.

Family friends Sr and Sra Coutinho can arrange further activities and servies, and advise on local walks. For example, you can rent a water bike for use on the River Douro. Evening meals can also be provided upon request.
