Villa Mirante is a beautiful, characterful, historic building built during a simpler time. If you are truly looking to get anyway from it all the combination of the Douro Valley – with its relaxed pace – and this villa is for you. As soon as you arrive at the villa you will appreciate the stature of this older building and the finer details like the arches windows on the first floor with the delicate sections of stained glass. At the same time the history of the building does not mean compromising on comfort of amenities. First of all two of the four bedrooms are ensuite and the remaining two have access to a family bathroom. The bedrooms are decorated with a definite nod to the past but still with comfort and cosiness in mind. Charm abounds all around here from the heavy wooden shutters accompanied by delicate fabric blinds behind to the well cared for wooden flooring throughout. All the bedrooms here are on the ground floor and then you go up to your kitchen, and dining room with the amazing arches windows all around with the sunshine playing on the colourful stained glass. A great place to gather the family together and really create a special family meal. Outside the villa is no less inviting. You have a large pool by any standards to enjoy and plenty of green in keeping with this lush region. Take a few steps away from the villa and the vineyards stretch far and wide. It would almost be rude not to sample some of the locally produced wine. You have a long outside covered terrace upon which to relax and you also have a games room with table tennis and table football – especially appealing if travelling with children.
At Villa Mirante it’s really the combination of location and history that sets this villa apart. It’s the perfect place to unwind, relax, reflect and really take a moment to put life back into perspective.
