Welcome to our River Retreat. We are located in a tranquil location on the edge of the Rio Tamega on the doorstep of the Douro Valley.
Your room is the beautiful master bedroom overlooking the river, with it's own private balcony and en suite.
The house is a 5 bedroom architecturally designed property. We are offering the main bedroom in the house which has wonderful and secluded views over the Rio Tamega.
This is a special place where you can immerse yourself in nature. There are many spots in our beautiful garden and next to the River which are perfect to relax and feel stillness. For the more adventurous you can explore the water in one of our Kayaks. There are many walks and nature parks nearby which you will need a car to explore. We are in the "Wine region" of Portugal and our house is surrounded by many vineyards which you can explore, some are close enough to walk by foot. We can also organise local wine tasting tours or traditional Portugese cooking lessons. These will need to be booked well in advance and are subject to availability.
The natural water infinity pool looks out over the River and we have sun loungers you can use if you want to make the most of the Portuguese sunshine. The outside dining space means you can enjoy lunch with a glass of local wine in the garden.
We provide breakfast for all of our guests. Otherwise the property is self catering - the kitchen is great for cooking and has a superb view of the river. The local supermarket is 10 minutes away by car, or there are larger supermarkets in Marco De Canavesses or Penafiel which take 15/25 minutes by car.
The house and gardens are yours to explore.
Interaction with guests
We are a young family and this is our home so we spend a lot of time here - we are happy to share our home with you and for you to explore the garden and river.
