Surpassed Expectations!

Quinta Do Loureiro is situated above the Douro Valley providing breathtaking views over the river. It is approached through a wooded area of eucalyptus and cork oak trees with terraces of orange and lemon trees to the front, this all gives the villa a high degree of privacy and adds to the overall atmosphere of tranquility.

The house itself is very welcoming and full of character, spotlessly clean with comfortable beds, there is a very well appointed kitchen, a full bathroom and seperate shower room. Outside there is a large swimming pool and patio area with loungers, there are tables and chairs on the terrace to the front of the villa where you can enjoy meals taking in the superb views.

During our stay we had temperatures in the high 30'sC, however inside the villa the temperature was always pleasantly cool. The lack of air-conditioning was not a drawback.

We found this a great centre to visit the local towns and vineyards and explore further up the valley, the roads are in very good condition but do wind and twist a lot so leave plenty of time to travel!

Finally Francisco is a marvellous host, very welcoming, with a wealth of local knowledge and always willing to assist making your holiday memorable.
