Quinta dos Baldo aims to create a rural tourism experience in quality, with all possible comfort and well-being. Out kept the original stone, inside was created a unique environment: air conditioning, television, stove, clay floor handmade, wooden cover, everything to make your stay only sin for short. Within the limitations that deadlines and budget dictated, the house was building up trying to be as green and sustainable as possible. To keep the house warm and cool down too much, it used to cork, a national and natural material. The floor, made of pine wood, gravel and clay, was handmade by the owner, recreating the traditional floors, in a process with low carbon emissions. The area where the house is located is rich and diverse. The International Douro is a special area, with viewpoints chilling walls-half with emphasis nests (vultures), restaurants with the best of regional food, a natural park full of remarkable landscapes. And the Douro vineyard just outside your door. Freixo de Espada a Cinta, Moncorvo Tower, Mogadouro and Castelo Rodrigo are just some of the destinations waiting. And Martin Tirado, a village where everyone speaks the language of hospitality.
