About the villa

Utterly relaxing in its scenic rural setting, this rambling house makes a lovely choice for winding-down to the local tempo, while its lay-out lends itself to a gathering of friends or family. There are two lower level wings, each with two bedrooms, linked by an upper floor which houses the villa’s master suite. Three of the five rooms are flexibly furnished for twin or double use, all have en suite bath or shower room, and Quinto Oleandro has air conditioning throughout. Uncluttered and understated, the villa has a comfortable TV room on the lower ground, complementing the main social space on the upper level, where a country-style dining room and contemporary sitting room have windows onto the views, and the kitchen opens out to the poolside terrace. 

Facilities for outdoor living include cushioned cane seating in a covered gazebo, a pergola for al fresco dining in leafy shade, a generously sized, solar-heated pool, table tennis and a poolside putting green. Guests can enjoy a complimentary winery tour and tasting. With a village café and grocery shopping just 5.5km away, a 15km drive leads to restaurants and river cruises from Pinhao.

About the area

Douro Valley and the North

Average weather

At Douro Valley’s westerly point, PORTUGAL’S second city Porto is your perfect starting point to explore the world’s oldest wine-producing region. The valley stretches from the Atlantic to the Spanish border in Northern Portugal, and the river its lifeblood. It boasts three UNESCO-protected regions, including Porto’s riverside barrio of Ribeira, with its Medieval streets and waterfront cafés, plus the key to the area: the Alto Douro Wine Region. Enjoy Porto’s soaring Sé (cathedral), its cloisters adored with azulejos painted tiles. Further east, religious worshippers head to the pretty town of Amarante, to touch the tomb of São Gonçalo.
