"Let yourself and your family be spoiled during your stay at Villa Pinhao, with breakfast served daily on your terrace in front of a jaw dropping panorama over olive groves and vineyard terraces and, of course, the Douro river flowing through the deep valley below - a truly amazing setting, ideal for wine tasting or river tours in one of Portugal's most enchanting regions!"
In the evening this luxury property transforms into something quite magical – the infinity swimming pool is flood-lit, the Jacuzzi ceiling is lit-up with tiny stars and you look onto to the faint twinkling lights of distant villages. Breakfast is included daily and cook service is available on request. A local mobile is provided as well as tablet computer to use as a reference guide to the region. The panoramic terraces are perfect for 'al fresco' dining and an outdoor chill-out area amidst vineyards and olive trees, provides the ideal set up for a private wine tasting or just somewhere to relax with a book and a glass of port in hand. One week (or longer) rentals also benefit from a complimentary “local gastronomy” meal, a visit and tasting at one of the Port producing Quintas, and weather permitting a vineyard terraces picnic plus a two hour Rabelo boat ride on the Douro, as well as other offers.
