Vista Gloriose

Europe / Portugal / Pinhão

A dramatic landscape of gorges excavated by the Douro river, vine-clad hills and extensive olive groves are the daily panorama that guests can enjoy from this hilltop villa with heated pool - a blissful haven in which to unwind with a glass of Porto or as you indulge in your complimentary daily breakfast on your terrace.

Once an old village school, this four en-suite bedroom villa has been converted into a beautiful family vacation villa to very high standard, and is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. Included in one week rentals (or longer) are added value extras such as: a complimentary “local gastronomy” meal; a visit to one of the Port producing Quintas with wine tasting; and weather permitting, a vineyard terraces picnic plus a two hour Rabelo boat ride on the Douro. The excellent and friendly staff speak Portuguese, French and English and as well as looking after your daily needs, double up as local tour guides or babysitter on request.
