Overview
Villa -
4 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Porto, Porto District, Northern Portugal
17th Century farmhouse set in 25 acres of gardens, with superb views over the Douro River, reached by a lovely winding track through the grounds. The property, with its orange, lemon and olive groves, has been in our family for several generations and the many prints, sketches and photographs lining the walls tell their own history of the Port Wine region of Portugal. The property is 70km from the coast and Porto (home of the Port Wine cellars and with its town centre designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site).

Nearby, there is also a thermal retreat which offers spa treatments. The self-catering farmhouse is set in...
