Villa Vineyard, Porto Region

Property ref: PP1381


Maximum: 10 adults plus 2 child/children

A place to completely relax and enjoy a peaceful family retreat

Villa Vineyard is located in the heart of the Douro World Heritage Site and sits on a high plateau on the banks of the River Torto, a tributary south of the Douro River. The property is over 100 years old, with metre thick walls and built across two levels, it has been lovingly converted from what was once a field workers house away from their own homes during the grape-picking season.

The property is now equipped with modern conveniences and comfortable interiors. There are five bedroom suites including a family suite with an extra pullout bed for 1 or 2 children. There is a spacious TV room which provides a great place to escape the hottest hours of the day or to enjoy a cinema evening for all the family. This room also opens onto a vine-covered-pergola area with barbecue for dining alfresco.

The villa is surrounded by 10 hectares of terraced vineyards, located between 100m to 200m above sea level facing north, west, and east, and there are multiple areas for relaxing and enjoying the bucolic views, reading a good book or sipping a refreshing White Port Tonic - a must try when you’re in the Douro! There is a heated swimming pool and table tennis for the young at heart, whilst a number of walks or runs of varying degrees of difficulty can be enjoyed between the vineyards, and the vine terraces are perfect for a picnic.

Being a table wine-producing estate, the rental of this amazing property includes a guided tour of the winery as well as a tasting! This is a working estate with an organic principle, so no artificial pesticides or fertilizers are used. The natural wildflowers that cover the terraces are controlled through repeated trimming and there are lots of trees yielding delicious seasonal fresh fruit such as cherries, figs, damsons, peaches, apples, pears, oranges and lemons as well as estate-produced olive oil, for guests to enjoy. Early mornings, 3 times a week, a small white van stops by with other local produce from the region such as fresh bread, eggs and fruit for guests to purchase.

During the Harvest Season (September) the property is available for fully catered “wine weekends” hosted by the producer himself. This includes a guided tour of the estate and getting involved in whatever “the job of the day” is (picking or treading grapes, mixing or tasting, bottling, etc) as well as a few extras. We can also arrange private catering at an additional cost. Please ask us for more details.

We are absoutely thrilled to include this sensational property in our portfolio,which is not only a relaxing retreat, but an entire vineyard experience.

Things we love
“Porto is the perfect size to explore by foot. Guests will love wandering down the alleyways full of history and nostalgia, or strolling across the famous Dom Luís I Bridge before sampling some of the delicious local Port wine!”
Things to be aware of
“While the cobbled streets add character to Porto’s historic neighbourhoods, they can be challenging for those with mobility concerns. Navigating the city involves hills and uneven surfaces, which might pose difficulties for individuals with limited mobility or those pushing strollers. We recommend you wear comfortable footwear when exploring the city.”
