The Vintage House

The Vintage House

This superbly located hotel is set in an idyllic location on the Douro. It is located in a former 'quinta' and was refurbished in 2016 while still preserving the original architecture. The delicious cuisine, spacious rooms and attentive service will probably be something you will remember for a long time. From the nearby picturesque railway station, you can make a trip to Pocinho or Mirandela. The railway runs directly along the river and offers a breathtaking view of the characteristic landscape. And don't forget to take part in a wine tasting initiation!
