From the Quinta guests can easily access some of the most beautiful landscapes man has ever produced such as the terracing of the vineyards along the Douro valley which are well known for the production of the world famous Port wine. The area is now an UNESCO World Heritage site.

The Quinta de Mouraes estate is well looked after and a walk through its 2,5 hectares garden can be a wonderful and pleasant surprise.

The owners grow many plant species on the property, such as camellias and azaleas giving the property a renewed colour each season. There is even a lake where a couple of swans swim around freely.

The view from the property is delightful, stretching out for miles of unspoilt country.

Accommodation is on the farmhouse called Casa dos Rododendros, which was built on the 18th century and completely restored some years ago. Most details of the original construction can still be seen on the house, remarkably integrated.

The house is very cosy and welcoming. Its decoration is typical of a Manor House with paintings, hand made tiles and tapesties, reflecting the opulence of past times when agriculture in large estates was indeed a profitable activity.
