  • 5 of 5

Without a doubt, anyone choosing to visit this accommodation will be in for a special treat.

Starting with the hosts, Elsa and Filipe, two of the friendliest and generous people that we have come across in a a long time. Our arrival was met with a generous welcome table display of a bottle of wine, cheeses, bread from a nearby bakery, sliced smoked pork and a bowl of fruit.

Their enthusiasm to make our holiday a memorable one, not only showed in their eyes, but in the basket that we received every morning on the door step with rolls and pastries.

The location of Quinta da Agraceira is an adventure in itself. Differently stated, one visiting this place must be flexible to the unknown and new adventures. But, once there, and exposed to the environment of Quinta da Agraceira, you will be absorbed by the natural landscape and the charm of the Douro river with it´s occasional activity of kayakers and river cruises.

By normal standards or individual expectations, one would find the swimming pool by the accommodation´s area. Not so with Quinta da Agraceira. Prepare yourself to take an enjoyable stroll through the grounds to this sunny plateau where the sun bothers the pool, surrounded by chestnut trees, oak trees, eucalyptus trees and others unknown to me.

Whatever the reasons that will attract your senses to this charming accommodations, known as Quinta da Agraceira, one must , above all be willing to accept this unknown new adventure. It is worth it.

Thank you Elsa for your warm hospitality and continuous sunshine attitude. Filipe, thank you for guiding us back to the airport. Although it ended up that we had 14 hours to spare and get lost.Our flight got cancelled. But that would have been another adventure to talk about.

Located at the riverside of Douro's river, in Avintes.

Between Porto and "Alto Douro Wine Region", both classified as UNESCO World Heritage, this small farm house as just finished it's renovation and belongs to "Quinta da Agraceira", which is a magnificent property with 50. 000 m2. You can enjoy a unique view over the Douro River, just 10 kms from Porto city.

The Douro River is located in the heart of the Douro River, in the heart of the Douro River.

With more than a hundred species of camellias (more than 200 years old), and old chestnut trees, along other species, is truly a unique place.

The historical center of Porto was classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and Porto has been elected "European Best Destination 2017" (the third time that the city receives this distinction).

With its special charm, simultaneously modern and authentic, Porto has many things to offer: monuments, architecture, cultural heritage, cultural life, museums, esplanades and other open air leisure spaces as well as green spaces, along river bank and sea shore. At night, you can also find entertainment and leisure at its bubbling streets, esplanades and bars. If you are a food lover, you have plenty of restaurants to choose from: welcome to what Lonely Planet called "Portugal's food capital"!

To the north you find the Douro Valley - recognized by UNESCO as World Heritage since 2001 and the oldest demarcated wine region of the world (since the Roman occupation, for some 2. 000 years). It is also a must-see!

Douro Valley cultural landscape of outstanding beauty is "representative of the full range of activities associated with winemaking - terraces, wine-producing farms, villages, chapels, and roads." Its main product, since the 18th century, port wine, is world famous.
