A beautiful house in a beautiful location
We had a fantastic holiday at Adalberto's lovely house on the Douro. The house nestles into the hillside almost hidden from the river, with restored terraces above and below. The house was clean and well equiped. We swam and kayaked in the river, it surpassed any pool I have been in. In the evening the river often became still and you could see fish feeding, herons on the bank and then bats flitting around the trees.
Adalberto was a very attentive host and phoned several times to ensure that we were comfortable.
The house is about 20 minutes from Marco de Canaveses, from where you can catch trains to Porto or up to the port producing regions of the upper Douro.
Patrick and his family are friendly, quiet and very respectful of space; values that we cultivate and appreciate.
Surely they look for special and unique places.
It would be nice to receive them again.
Unique place, sophisticated architecture
We spent some wonderful days at Adalberto‘s house. It really is a unique place we immediately felt in love with. Moreover, the architecture of this house is very sophisticated. Adalberto is a great host, very friendly and to get in touch with him was always easy and valuable. We‘ll be back for sure.
The Bork couple and their two children are special people,
educated and respectful. They were able to understand the specificity of the place, the house and its interior and exterior atmosphere, as if the house were theirs.
They will always have the door open whenever they want to come back again.
ein stück vom paradies im dourotal
adalbertos grosszügiges terrassiertes anwesen und darin sein sehr besonderes haus ist ein eindrückliches erlebnis. er hat beides mit grosser sensibilität in die umgebende natur eingefügt. der blick von der terrasse hinunter zum douro war immer wieder zauberhaft.
das von ihm entworfene haus verbindet perfekte funktionalität
mit feinem stil, und immer wieder freuten wir uns über gestalterische details.
wir, vier freunde aus berlin und köln, fühlten uns hier zehn tage lang vollkommen wohl.
adalberto nahm sich bei der begrüssung viel zeit und fragte immer
wieder telefonisch nach unserem wohlergehen und wünschen.
wir danken ihm sehr herzlich für diesen ausgesucht schönen ort.

Casa linda num lugar maravilhoso
Beautifully located house on the Douro river. House is comfortable and offers everything you need. Owner (and architect) of the house welcomed us in person, and made us feel at home right away. We will definitely come back.
Femke's family is special, because friendly, quiet and very respectful of the house.
Special, also by choosing a special place.
Guests like these deserve my admiration.

The villa is located on a property (6700m2) with a bank to the river, 60 km from the city of Porto, in the remarkable Douro Valley and inside a protected area.
If you are looking for milder temperatures, choose the verdant spring, or the autumn with its warm earth colors, from the yellow roasted to the red copper of the vineyards.
If you want more heat, choose July or August, which can be refreshed with a bath in the river, or in the shade of the grove of the terrace garden.
Well served by accesses, its location in the Douro Valley is the center of a vast region that covers an hour's journey, three world heritage sites - the Port to the West - the vineyard landscape of the Douro valley to the east, the city of Guimarães to the north, without forgetting the interior more to the south.
For national roads, in this surroundings, discover the natural landscapes, as well as Portuguese culture, history and gastronomy through its most important testimonies such as monuments and museums.
You also have the possibility to sail the river, fish or stroll along the mountain.
Basic services (supermarket, pharmacy, bank, hospital, etc.) are available between 2 to 10 km.
