Villa overview - owner's description

This beguiling 300-year-old estate, called Quinta Vila Nova, is surrounded by vineyards and offers the best of both worlds: a peaceful rural setting as a great base for exploring the beautiful Douro region, and just 45 km away, the cosmopolitan attractions of the beautiful city of Porto. The 6-hectare family owned former farm is the place to be for lovers of Douro wine or Vinho Verde, the green sparkling wine made by traditional methods. The property offers the organic fruits which are growing on the property, an unforgettable experience of September harvest, the communal swimming pool of 56 m², with a view of vineyards and green hills, invites for a cooling swim during lazy and sunny afternoon. There are all kinds of lovely activities nearby. You can make your own olive oil with an old olive press, or take private paint lessons with one of the most famous Portuguese painters, Mr. Carlos Carreira, who is one of the neighbours on the hill. This holiday home is located in a relaxing, green and hilly area and has an unspoilt beauty. On the same estate, there are four self-catering cottages completely rebuilt in 2014, but keeping the old charm with antique beds, beautiful chandeliers, old stone walls, but modern bathrooms, well equipped kitchens and spacious terraces perfect for breakfast by birdsongs, for a sunbath or a romantic dinner by sunset. There are 3 more houses on the same plot. And although there is space enough (6.000 m²), please know that you can have neighbours. The advantage can be that these houses can also be rented together and be a marvelous place for a family up to 14 members. Quinta Vila Nova is an idyllic place for amazing holidays.

Frequently asked questions

Directions and details on how to collect the keys will be emailed to you after you have paid for the booking in full. You will receive full details about your booking including directions to the property and a booking voucher that you need to hand over to the property manager when you receive the keys. In some instances you may need to collect the keys from the property manager’s office or some other location which is not the actual property you have booked to stay in. Please note that the agent provides us with the GPS co-ordinates in the travel directions and we communicate these to you; you should contact the property manager if these are unclear.

The exact dimensions will vary from property to property but the agent has specified that bed sizes are as follows:

  • A single bed is typically 70cm to 85 cm wide and 180cm to 190cm deep.
  • A double bed is typically 140cm to 180cm wide and 180cm to 190cm deep.
  • A “grand lit” is a European double bed, suitable for couples, and can be smaller than the usual UK or American doubles. It is typically 130cm wide but in some instances may be wider; it is approximately 180cm to 190cm deep.

A bunk bed is two single beds, one on top of another. Some properties also have pull-out beds, sofa beds and/or bed chairs; in a few properties the bed can be low in a wooden frame on the floor. The beds often have terry cloth sheet mattress protectors to protect the mattresses; please use them with the bed linen.

Some properties may have a loft as a bedroom: this is usually an open room at the top of the house with sloping walls and mattresses on a low bed or on the floor itself. You need to climb a ladder to reach this room. Lofts are very popular with children but may not be suitable for adults or elderly guests.

If a property has an annexe then it will typically be a building attached to the main property or a small self-contained building. Annexes often have no central heating.

Please note that bedrooms in holiday rentals are usually not that large; you should refer to the floor plan to get a sense of size.

Quality rating: three stars. The agent rates this as a well-kept, middle of the range holiday property.
