Quinta Da Marka offers a terrace. Guests can swim in the outdoor swimming pool, go hiking or relax in the garden. Vila Real is 33 km from the accommodation, while Peso da Régua is 44 km from the property.
Pros: The location was great! Great views over the Douro River. Close to the train station for a short ride to town. The staff was superb! Great tips on what to see and do in the local area.
Cons: The bed could have been bigger and the pillows softer.
Pros: This was the main house of a small vineyard. The staff was incredibly helpful. When we arrived it was lunch time and the hostess of the house made a reservation for us at a fabulous nearby restaurant and then took care of our bags so we wouldn't be late. They went out of their way to do nice things for us. It was almost like being a guest in a private home. There is a lovely pool and patio facing the hills where you can have cocktails. You can also hike to a private chapel up on the hill. Truly a lovely spot!
Pros: Ângela was amazing and extremely helpful with scheduling and coordinating tours. She also gave great recommendations for local restaurants and vineyards.
Pros: very nice and cosy house, splendid views from the entire property (room, terrace, breakfast room) over the Douro river, isolated/calm place perfect to relax (also necesary to have a car to get there). House facilities are top and it is possible to have dinner. Breakfast is very good.
Cons: all was perfect, so nothing to say!
Pros: It's a very beautiful place.
Cons: The breakfast was very simple, with few varieties.
Pros: We thought the Quinta was really high quality! We stay in A LOT of hotels and were impressed by the big and small attention to details. From the Angela's hospitality (truly great!), to the comfortable bed, high-end bathroom, beautiful views from our room -- it was really wonderful! We want to come back with friends some day. We chose to do the full dinner at the hotel (really, you are going to be hard pressed to have dinner anywhere besides the hotel because driving is dangerous at night) -- and it was a great experience! We had the steak and goat entrees that come with appetizers, soup, salad, a bottle of wine, and dessert. Really good, attentive service. And the hotel has lots of spaces to just sit and relax on sofas by fireplaces, so you really feel the quinta is your home and you don't have to stay pent up in your room.
Cons: It was a great place, highly recommend.
Pros: This is the essential place to stay when in the Douro region. It’s in a tiny village 15 minutes from Pinhão. It is extraordinary because of its modern/rustic decor, character and the hosts, Jet and Ronald. You also absolutely must arrange to have dinner there (most evenings that is possible). This will give you exceptional food plus a variety of wines and ports. Ronald is an informed and entertaining aficionado of all that you will consume. Sorry, Ronald and Jet if this review creates pressure of expectations from future clients but after 18 years experience you can handle it!
Cons: Simply nothing!
Pros: Beautiful old stone building in a charming small village high up in the Douro Valley. Your room is a large country bedroom overlooking the valley. It feels like you are guests at a friends weekend dinner party in the country. Walk the path down to the river for a great day but do not miss the dinner with wine pairings. This was one of our favorite nights of our two weeks in Portugal.
Cons: We could not stay longer! It was a little too cold to swim in the beautiful pool!
Pros: fantastic place' great hosts very fiendly well come us with 2 good wines from the doro unforgetable rooms very unic very big, good shower great view great garden amazing btreakfast great loction on doro vally
Pros: Everything, but the offer of dinner with excellent matched wines was a super bonus. We ate and drank both nights at the accommodation with other guests and had a sensational experience.
Pros: Provosende remarkably perched with great views of Douro Valley from property. Optional dinners provided great food, valuable wine/port tasting, and provoked great conversation around common table.
Cons: Our particular room was dark. Would return but seek second floor room with exterior windows.
Pros: Good breakfest. What we enjoyed most of all - was dinner that was catered every evening on the large table, where all guests seated together chatting and eating. And the wonderful owner telling different interesting stories and facts and performing wine degustations.
Pros: The building and gardens were wonderful. I’d love to stay here again! The wine tasting dinner was a blast.
Pros: This is a lovely old house converted to a B&B, set in the middle of a charming old village. We had a big room with a small balcony and a view of the hills. The owners are very helpful and can give you a lot of useful advice. Also, they cook dinners every now and then which are served at a common table, so there is a chance for guests to socialize if they wish.
Cons: There was only portable air conditioning device.
Pros: A town with only 300 people with beautiful views and fields. People at the plaza knows each other, and welcome to their town. You can seat and relax and enjoy the views from house or go explore the town and beautiful wineries.
Pros: The evening meals were delicious and each course was paired with an excellent wine or port. The group meals were a lot of fun and a chance to interact with different cultures.
With a stay at Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo - Luxury Winery House in Sabrosa, you'll be 11.1 mi (17.9 km) from Quinta da Roeda and 13.4 mi (21.6 km) from Church of Sabrosa. Featured amenities include complimentary wired Internet access, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk. Guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle for a surcharge, and free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: Beautiful setting and very kind and caring staff. The food and wine was fantastic.
Cons: No complaints at all!
Pros: Fantastic location, the views are a dream. We came there to relax and the place is perfect just for that. Staff is super helpful. The rooms are traditional and clean. The breakfast is exactly how I like it - small selection of very high quality food. The wine tasting was fun, the boat trip with wine tasting was great for meeting people, the wineyard hike was also a highlight.
Cons: For Portugal, it is expensive, but the quality is reflected in the prices. The only thing is that they offer only 3-courses fine dining dinner (50eur per person). Some nights we just werent that hungry and just wanted a soup, but that was not possible. It is a pity. Also bring water with you. I found the water in the hotel expensive (i think around 4eur for 0,7l). You get two bottles per room each day, but for us it was not enough, so we ended up paying a lot for water. But, saying all this, if money is not a problem for you, this is the place to go!
Pros: The hotel is remotely located with 30 minutes or more to other places on narrow twisty roads my husband loved to drive. The restaurant offers delicious food, but the small, set menus, which didn’t change during the 4 days we were there, did not offer enough flexibility for us. Also, they only offer their own wines, but will open and serve your wine without a corkage fee. We enjoyed hiking the property, lazing by the pool, leisurely breakfasts, and our first dinner. The views and decor are flawless, service is fantastic.
Cons: Our meal preferences did not match the limited tapas selections and there was no flexibility permitted in the main meal serving. Our 2nd night, after being told we couldn’t share a dinner, we reluctantly ordered two meals. The entrees that arrived were not what we ordered. The waiter acknowledged the mistake, apologized, and took them back to get the proper ones. It was 45 minutes later when we got well done lamb chops (absolutely NO pink) instead of medium rare as ordered. The waiter again apologized and offered to get us replacements. It only takes 10 minutes to correctly cook the lamb, so it was obvious our meal went to the end of the service line. It was well past time for us to eat so we declined. Other than the waiter, we never received any apologies or consideration from the chef or manager. Our following lunch and dinners were eaten offsite. The restaurant at Quinta Rosa was very nice and far more flexible. Also, a roadside restaurant directly on the other side of the river offered delicious local foods as great prices. My favorite was the fried quail plate.
Pros: View and foodC
Cons: Communication regarding booking wine tours and dinner in advance
Pros: Wonderful service - collecting & taking us to the station. Very informative wine tour. Amazing dinner with beautifully presented food & interesting flavours. Brilliant wine of course. Perfect location - peace & quiet with fabulous views at every turn. Lovely walking round the estate - even the tractor drivers were friendly & pleased to talk to visitors.
Cons: Unable to do wine tour as full Rang before and asked if needed to pre book and told not necessary Could not accomodate us and we were a group together of 6 We were not happy
Pros: Superb location inside a winery. The view is stunning and the amenities available make this a perfect place to relax, enjoy nature, or having a romantic stay. The wines from Quinta Nova are awesome and having dinner there is a nice opportunity to enjoy them all pairing with a very good meal.

Pros: staff extremely nice and helpful. Great breakfast. Wonderful views.
Pros: A beautiful old style hotel within a glorious setting, right on the banks of the Douro river. Rooms are clean and well presented. All the modern features you expect, plus French doors opening to a sweet Juliette balcony overlooking the river. Beautiful grounds and pool area.
Cons: Air conditioning did not seem to work. Maybe it was turned off as very mild weather but worth checking if it is summer.
Pros: Breakfast was very generous. Spacious room with a view.
Cons: None of the doors had a door pump, so you could hear doors slamming.
Pros: Location is good. Breakfast is also good. It's a quiet, elengent hotel. We have dinner in the restaurent which is a good decision.
Cons: The matterss is too soft for me.
Pros: Lovely rooms with balcony on the river. Room was small but well appointed. Service was awesome. We would stay there again.
Located in Alijo, Casa de Casal de Loivos is within a 15-minute drive of Quinta da Roeda and Quinta do Panascal Visitor's Center. Featured amenities include luggage storage and laundry facilities. Free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: The view from this property was spectacular, and we were able to walk out of our room onto a patio area where you could see the view. The property offered dinner, which turned out to be a great benefit, as it was quite a distance into town to get to restaurants. Maria, the host at the property, was lovely and very attentive.
Cons: We were driving a rental car, and were told by someone (a man) when we called the property to use our GPS. Bad advice! The GPS led us on the shortest route up a terrifying slope on dirt roads through vineyards. We had to turn around (not so easy) go back and call for verbal directions. The property is poorly marked and there is very little parking. We found that other guests had a similarly traumatic experience. The house itself is historic - from the 17th C. Our room was adequate, but quite spare and the bathroom small. No facecloths or shampoo in the bathroom.
Pros: Maria went out of her way to accommodate every need. She warmly welcomed us & made us feel at home. Her staff is remarkably proficient. We enjoyed 2 outstanding dinners in the community dining room & unexpectedly met other guests from Germany, Sweden, France, Brazil, British Columbia, & Portugal. The pastries at breakfast were divine, as good as any I’ve experienced anywhere. Views from the terrace were spectacular. The peaceful surroundings provided a zen-like quality. It was the perfect end to our perfect Portuguese adventure. Outstanding!!!
Cons: The furnishings in the sitting room & in the greeting lobby could be upgraded, but this “could be” is minor in the overall ambiance of Casa de Casal de Loivos.
Pros: Views, helpful staff and everything!!!
Pros: The staff are very helpful, especially Maria who went out of her way to ensure we were enjoying our stay. The breakfast offered a very good variety of items and plentiful. The view is spectacular.
Cons: One suggestion for improvement would be to have some external signage on the bldg. it is a bit tricky to find, we recognized the rather unique railings on the windows from the photos and knew to stop, but several other arriving guests drove round and round looking for it even though they were using gps.
Pros: The view is unbelievable and the property is stunning - authentic
Cons: The room was very noisy - we were in the bedroom under the dining room - to be avoided - we heard the tidying noise until 11.30 pm and then very early in the morning - the comfort does not match the price in that respect. Besides the dinner was 27 euros not including wine which is expensive for Portugal standards if you serve a vegetable soup, a main dish and a basic cake.
Pros: Marie was a fabulous hostess and showed us many fascinating things and provided wonderful historical information. She made the experience the most pleasant we could have wanted. Highly recommend this magnificent home with spectacular views. Drive up is narrow and steep in places but if you go slow the rewards more than make up for the few tense moments squeezing your car through.
Pros: The meals were very ordinary and expensive. Although the attraction of the place is the view, there are no views from the dining area.
Cons: The food
Pros: Room and property was at all basic needs and clean, the location was slight difficult to find with no obvious sign, but going in to the door, it all worth it. Small property but it always occupied with the magical view that you can stopped everything and just relax! Love it! The property was antique and giving a home feeling. The dining area was small and giving you a chance to have your meal with stranger at one tables, which feel awkward but great! The breakfast was my favourite and simple selection with most variety that you can find! You may choose to walk around the vineyard to immerse yourself in it!
Cons: Dinner quality may improve with the paying price

Pros: Domi, Maria and Jean-Louis were very friendly hosts. Their place was a great spot to explore the Alto Douro. We also enjoyed having dinner at the local cafe where the owners and patrons were all so welcoming too. A great experience all around!
Cons: The only thing that was missing was not to have a view from our bedroom window.
Pros: Wonderful house in a wonderful scenery! Our room was big and extremely clean. Owners and staff are very kind and helpful with precious infos and anything you need. Excellent pequeno-almoço!!
Pros: This property, standing in the centre of a rural village is full of character. It has the charm of a typical Portuguese farmhouse and has been restored to a very high spec. The rooms are spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated with outside seating areas. The swimming pool was of a good size and meticulously maintained with sun beds and swim towels provided. Our host was most welcoming and helpful and provided a very plentiful breakfast in a room with a panoramic view.
Cons: The plastic- backed mattress protector made the bed feel clammy, which is a shame as the sheets were of a high quality and the bed very comfortable.

Business, Other Amenities Self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
Pros: Gorgeous setting. Swimming pool.
Pros: Beautiful location on the vineyard with excellent pool area and very comfortable rooms and lounge areas. Delicious breakfast.
Cons: The inclusive wine tasting was disappointing and probably worth paying more for a better version. The room for the wine tasting lacks atmosphere and the tour and tasting felt a bit rushed. Dinner with wine is outstanding value although again the atmosphere could be improved.
Pros: Beautiful property and the pool is nice. Great wines! The best part was the 6 course dinner. It is a MUST for this stay. The value is really good as well. The staff is also really really amazing!
Cons: The room could've been a little better in terms of cleanliness and comfort.
Pros: We were greeted by the friendly staff, who made bookings for us for the boat cruise, cellar tour and their restaurant. Room is charming and clean. Beds are comfy but on the hard side. The property is absolutely beautiful! The lounge is warm and cozy with a great view. Love to spend time in it. Drinks are self served. You just need to put down your room number. The restaurant is a must. They have tasting menu with wine pairing. Their food and service are top notch. It was pouring when we finished our meal. Since it’s quite a walk from the restaurant to the hotel building, our waiter took us back to the hotel with his car. We are so grateful to him! Breakfast doesn’t have a lot of selection but the food they had was great. Love their cheese, fruits and yogurt
Cons: Amenities of the washroom can use a little updating
Pros: The hotel is beautifully set amongst the vineyards. We were there on a rainy day, but the common lounge area is so comfortable and inviting, and we had a lovely time drinking wine and chatting with friends. We ate at the hotel restaurant and had the 6-course tasting menu. It was delicious and I would highly recommend it. The staff was friendly and helpful. We will have to come again, perhaps in the summer so we can relax by the pool.

Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, a 24-hour front desk, and multilingual staff.

Pros: Room size was great! Staff Was great! Walking to town is not convenient. I wish they would offer a shuttle.
Cons: Far from town. I think they should offer a shuttle to the LBV restaurant.
Pros: The staff was so friendly and helpful. The room was very modern and clean. We even had a large deck with a beautiful view. Breakfast was also pleasant.
Cons: The jacuzzi was broken while we were there.
Pros: Lovely view from Room 4, very nice patio
Cons: Breakfast didn't start until 7 and our train left at 7:18, so no breakfast
Pros: View is gorgeous
Cons: Hard beds, distance from town....
Pros: The hotel had a wonderful position, slightly away from the centre of Pinhão but it would be an easy (hilly) walk. Reception v happy to order a taxi, we paid less than 5 euros each way. The room had a large balcony with comfortable chairs and with river views which were beautiful. The room was immaculate and the staff extremely kind and courteous. We ate in the hotel restaurant which is in Pinhão itself and would definitely recommend. Would love to return.
Cons: Nothing it was lovely.
With a stay at Quinta da Veiga in Sabrosa, you'll be 11.3 mi (18.2 km) from Quinta da Roeda and 13 mi (20.9 km) from Church of Sabrosa. Free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: The location and the view are absolutely amazing. The best I have ever had. Silence, peace, relax and then greatest view possible!
Cons: The costs of dinners were above average also considering that there was no alla carta options. In any case the food was very good
Pros: We can understand the mixed reviews of this hotel. The Owner, Seu, is the key. I think if she is there when you are, you will have a great experience. She makes the place! Our experience was excellent probably because she was there the whole time we were. She treated us like special people. The other people managing the property are very good, but the overall atmosphere is created by Seu. Great hotel, nice pool, great views, wonderful breakfast and excellent dinners. We would stay here again..... Absolutely!
Cons: We were accidentally misbilled for our dinners. The regular reception person was on holiday and the intern who checked us out didn't realize that we didn't eat dinner on property one of the 3 nights we were there. Unfortunately, we didn't catch it before we were charged (our bad also). They said they could not do a refund to our card, but would transfer money to our credit union account. We are still waiting for that to happen.
Pros: What a spectacular view! Do yourself a favor and partake of the nightly dinner. It’s a delicious, multi course meal with lots of good local wine - and no need to drive on those narrow Douro roads in the dark.
Cons: Only small gripes, like there not being a rubbish bin in the room (just small one in the bathroom), and having to ask for more toilet paper.
Pros: Wonderful setting with amazing view of the river, lovely main rooms in the Quinta & great views from the balconies & dining room.The evening dinner was plentiful,good food & great value including much wine & port.The owners sons were there & gave us a tour of their winery the following morning which was lovely & Francisco who did almost everything from checking us in & out to serving drinks & dinner was an all round helpful cheerful & great chap. Breakfast was quite basic nothing hot but good continental selection.A very well kept property with lots of quirky artefacts from China where the owners lived.
Cons: The bedrooms need updating the beds were rock hard & very uncomfortable, if they had been better would have given them full marks
Pros: Great view, in a nice location. Wine was good. The pool was cleanly, and the front desk gentleman was very helpful.
Cons: Most expensive meal we ate in Portugal. Remote location so no options other options nearby.
Cons: Noone told us we had to reserve dinner. After a long tiring day it was not ideal to have to go out again .Fortunately Quinta Vila Nova gave us a splendid meal .
Pros: Quinta da Veiga is amazing both internally and externally. The old mansion includes several large halls, connected in series as was customary at the time. Each hall is beautifully decorated and each piece is a masterpiece. The location of the house is as beautiful looking down to the Douro valley and to the vineyards on both sides of the river. We went for a short walk along the road from the Quinta to Quinta Nova and back - amazing scenery. There might be a way from the Quinta to the railway station nead the river - I could not verify that the path through the vineyard goes all the way down in the valley. The Quinta has a winery higher up on the hill, and the winery owner was very kind to take us on a tour and answer our questions, even though it was the middle of the busy season. Muito Obrigado! The Douro valley was one of the highlights of our stay in Portugal, in large part due to Quinta da Veiga.
Cons: The Quinta did not provide any information about activities in the area, and especially about walking trails in the vicinity. It's a pity. There was no one to ask and the owner was not seen during our stay. Come prepared. With such a remarkable house, it is difficult to maintain guest rooms at the same standard. The furniture in the room show its age. A minimal modern style of the rooms might have been a more practical solution.

Pros: Beautiful view from the house. Stunning sunset view; overlooking the valley and the serene river running through.
Cons: The host is a great nice lady and very kibd. Communication with English speakers is a bit challenging due to limited English of the host. We spent a while to realize she meant to say she was off duty after 7 when she said “me party at 7”.. Maybe it will be more clear for the the host to type a few notice points/house rules and instruction etc for the guests in various languages.
Pros: The staff is extremely welcoming and hospitable. The house is nearly at the top of the hill and has stunning views of Douro Valley. There is also a quinta with wine tasting a few steps away.
Pros: Lovely views from our room. Quiet location.
