The headboard and the side tables were made from the old port wine barrels, therefore, when you enter the room, you still can sense the magic of the spices that only an old port has! It's very special! There are 2 complete bathrooms in the house that are shared.

The space

The space is unique because it has all the original features. Our guests will experience a cosy and very personalized approach and they will understand how a family in the Douro lived a 100 years ago! We offer 100% soft cotton bed linen, we provide every day bedroom cleaning service. Because the house it's situated in the the middle of vineyards you can go for a refreshing walk early in the morning on the vineyards without leaving the property.
The kitchen is only for the use of the owners of the house. The fridge is just for a family size it will no be able to cater for the guests to use. We can provide some tapas and wine from the region.

Guest access

My goal is to make guests feel at home!
There are 2 complete bathrooms in the house that are shared but we are extra zealous with the cleanence and the privacy.
We regret that at the moment we are unable to offer facilities either for children less than 12 years old or for people who are mobility-impair.

Interaction with guests

Breakfast is served in the large dining room of the main house. You can also dine, you just need to let us know before hand. Enjoy a glass of a 50 years port produced by the family at a sunset surrounded by a landscape of vineyards and mountains!

Other things to note

There are 2 complete bathrooms in the house that are shared but we are extra zealous with the cleanliness and the privacy. Breakfast is all about local and as much as possible organic products. We serve fruit, a variety of local cheeses,self made jams, and our organic olive oil. The bread is baked locally in a wooden oven and delivered every morning.
We have another 2 rooms listed ideal for a group of friends.

Elisabetes home was beautiful and she was a great hostess. Great location with amazing views of the valley. She provided us with a delicious breakfast as well. Pictures are accurate and the home is clean and quiet. She had great recommendations on places to visit in the area

Wonderful experience staying at Elizabete's enchanting home nestled amongst the grape vines and olive trees of the Duoro Valley. Historic house... spectacular view... quiet... perfect!!! The breakfast was the best I've ever had at an Airbnb and Elizabete is the kindest and most thoughtful host --- she genuinely cares about her guests and the experience they have while staying at her home. Highly, highly recommended!!!

Our lovely stay at Elisabete's place started at the latest when we drove up the driveway to Quinta do Fojo. When we arrived on the top we were just overwhelmed by the beautiful view over the Douro valley, the vineyards around and the very warm welcome of Elisabete and her mother. The house and the rooms are very nicely furnished and equipped with all necessary things. Even though we shared the house with other people we felt very welcomed everywhere in the house and the garden. The pool on the top of the hill was our highlight! Quinta do Fojo is a perfect starting point to explore Douro valley. For breakfast we got homemade jam and olive oil, fresh squeezed orange juice and other tasty local and fresh products prepared by Elisabete's lovely mum. Apart from that, you should definitely follow Elisabete's dinner tips. All in all our stay couldn't have been better. Five stars are not enough.

Best thing about the apartment was Elizabete. She was full of information about the area and suggestions for what to do. Of course the best thing was to just sit by the pool or on the veranda and soak in the view and the peacefulness of the surrounding area. Highly recommended!

We absolutely loved every minute we spent in the house. The location is dreamlike- in the middle of the vines. What a view! The house is clean, cozy and cute - a great comfortable bed, super clean shared bathroom. The pool is amazing, with a beautiful view! Every morning, there was an amazing breakfast prepared. Mostly, the hosts gave us so many great tips that made our yay amazing. Will stay again!

After having lived in Madrid and in London and being 23 years out of Portugal, my current dream, is to develop the farm on the following areas of wine table production and tourism. Nothing better than a good book accompanied with a nice glass of wine and being surrounded by this …
