Discover Quinta do Vallado, built in 1716, one of the oldest and more famous “quintas” in the Douro Valley.
Since 2005, Quinta do Vallado welcomes guests in its comfortable Wine Hotel. It consists of two buildings with different settings that combine tradition and modernity, a compound that was built and designed inspired by the Douro wine environment.
The hotel has 13 rooms; 5 bedrooms in the Traditional House, the historic building of the Quinta - built in 1733 and recently restored, and characterised by warm ochre colours and long gardens bordering the house, and having once belonged to Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira. The rooms combine comfort with the Douro's traditional and historic décor. All rooms have independent access through the garden.
And there are 8 rooms in the new building, built in 2012 and designed by the Architect Francisco Vieira de Campos, who was also in charge of the winery's renovation project, and used mainly schist in this work, the dominant stone in the region's soil. Each room has a private balcony, decorated in a contemporary style in sober and modern lines.
Hotel guests are invited to join a daily tour of Quinta do Vallado's winery and ageing cellars, where they will learn about the wine production process. The tour ends with a tasting of the main wines.
There is also a swimming pool with panoramic views for a refreshing experience after basking in the Douro's hot sun, a SPA with jacuzzi, steam room and sauna, and plenty of activities to choose from such as boat tours, cycling, fishing, jeep tours, canoeing, picnics and snooker.
