Magnificent vistas and far reaching countryside views over the Douro Valley await you at the beautiful Vista do Vale. Situated in the heart of this fascinating region, this unique villa sits within a 10 minute drive of the picturesque resort of Pinhao, the current port wine capital, from which you can explore the meandering Douro River by boat, sample some local port and wine in one of the many lodges and quintas nearby and try traditional Portuguese dishes. Lovingly renovated, the mix of old stone and modern design merge perfectly to form this impressive villa. Furnished with authentic Portuguese furnishings and antiques, each piece individually chosen to compliment each other. Everything you could need has been thought about at Vista do Vale, from the complimentary bathrobes and slippers, pool towels provided for your convenience, a local welcome pack ready for when you arrive, to the option of arranging a cook or a wine tasting for you to sample some local specialities - all leading to a relaxing and hassle free stay. Views over the rolling hills and lush green countryside can be admired from most angles, the first floor enclosed stone balcony the perfect place to make the most of the backdrop, where lazy shaded afternoons can be spent reading a book, or from the welcomed retreat of your private pool, where you can embrace the warm Portuguese weather. Ideally located next to Casa da Escola, convenient for larger groups of friends or families, if you are looking to holiday together in your own private surroundings.
