Everything was great - hospitality of the owners, room, landscape, food, wine
Outstanding property in idyllic location (albeit up a bit of a hair-raising track). The views are fantastic as is the high standard of the design and elegance of this house, it's as good as shown in the publicity pictures if not better. Carlos is a great host, always friendly and offers excellent advice on where to visit and eat. Thoroughly enjoyable visit.
My only criticism, and this is probably down to the English reserve, is that the dining area consists of one long table (with fantastic views I should add) and the seating is always arranged so that you are ontop of the other guests - fine if you know them or speak their language but not so good if you want a relaxing or romantic meal.
The hospitable, yet not overbearing, attention from the Quinta's family-run owners was much appreciated. The atmosphere was elegant and sophisticated, but at the same time a relaxed and laid back approach was recognized and welcomed. The proximity to local towns afforded day trip excursions, and the remoteness of the Quinta allowed for much needed seclusion and quiet down time. While enjoying down time, the Quinta offered a wide array of activities on site to accommodate any age level and wine connoisseur. Not enough can be said of the personable and knowledgeable owners, however. Note: The owner’s farm dog was equally a treat, having left our own family pet at home.
The view and the location are spectacular. We liked the beautifully designed (modern) rooms and furniture and the fact that we could take long walks in the vineyards surrounding the Quinta.
The dogs were barking right beneath our window in the middle of the night and something must be wrong with the pipings: whenever somebody was taking a shower it was so noisy it could have been in our room. And: dinner isn't actually worth the money (30 Euros p.p.).
Much more than an over-night stay. Wonderful location and river views. The owner is so helpful and proud to share his home. We are looking forward to a return trip.
The views and the rooms, also food was fairly good
The approach to the hotel was dangerous you had to travel along a dirt track only just wide enough for the clio I was driving and often it was very steep with shear drop on one side. Would be dangerous to attempt in the dark and hotelier said that we should have booked for dinner 24 hours before which we were not aware and were not going to attempt to leave and return in the dark,
Excellent stay! Fantastic views over the Douro valley, great home made food, wine and porto from own production.
For any one who enjoys Port, as a working Quinta it provides a fabulous insight into the production of Port wine. The place is very well appointed with stunning views and the owners are extremely helpful and friendly
The access road is VERY dangerous as it winds its way up the mountain. It is narrow and with lethal drops of many 100's of feet just inches from the vehicle. Very un-nerving for any one with vertigo or who is not 100% sure of their driving abilities
Amazing views. Very welcoming hosts. Lovely home cooked food and great wine.
Pool is a little small.
The place is new and clean, smells good. The owners Carlos and Madalena are very special people of the kind you dont see very often. I wish I had more time to stay there at least one more day.
Not really, but the road after you leave the highway could be better.
