Bedroom at Quinta do Cao - bed and breakfast accommodation on river Douro
In the past, the Douro river was used by the Rabelo's boats to transport the wine from the producing estates to Gaia where the wine is matured. Nowadays tourism boats cruise its waters up the river in a memorable and interesting journey. The vineyards covering the slopes of the Douro valley offer spectacular scenery.

This 12 acres property is set in a sloping land bringing together leisure, vineyards, nature and a good dose of tranquillity. The present owners bought the property a few years ago and from the ruins of an old granite house built a modern and beautiful home.

Next to it, additional guest bed and breakfast accommodation has been built on different levels. As the whole site runs steeply down to the river it is more suitable for young, fit persons.

The decor is modern and inspiring giving a personal touch to all the rooms in the house. Occasionally, paintings of different artists are exhibited at the entrance hall.
