Nestled in 120 hectares of Douro Valley vineyards, this traditional manor house has been transformed into the first wine hotel in Portugal.
At Quinta Nova - Luxury House Winery, guests can experience the true spirit of the Douro Valley by observing the wine-making process, as well as taking part in other farming activities, trails walks and historic tours of the property. When not sampling exquisite local wine or strolling through the tranquil countryside, guests can relax in the outdoor pool. After enjoying an excellent meal accompanied by the finest wine, retire to the comfort of a beautiful luxury room decorated in period-style, complete with views over the vineyards and river.
Douro is an immense region with surprises around every corner. You can take a day trip on a train along the river or ride on a private yacht, with a sunset dinner on board. Spend the morning sailing, then stop for a leisurely lunch at Quinta Nova, and later tour the wine villages in a private car. A day in the Coa Valley, with visits to the Museum, is a trip that combines train and boat. For an unforgettable experience there is a helicopter flight over the Douro valley.

"A peaceful place to be in the Douro"
great winery house friendly and helpful staffs their wines and food are good too I loved the spectacular views in the vineyards but I didn't have enough time to walk to the top which is kind of pity. it's a lovely place to be although this property is owned by the biggest cork producing company in the world, still their people are very down to earth and providing great services. It is a great wine tour spot for you to explore the Douro, the fascinating wine prodution land. They are making a museum above their cellar to demonstrate the old historic stuffs from this wine estate over 250 years old. Don't miss Quinta Nova when you have a chance!
"Lovely Hotel & with a few changes could be 5*"
We stayed here for two nights in September. It is a beautiful Quinta miles away from anywhere. At this time of year it was rather hot - 40 degrees and no breeze at all. The food is amazing there is no doubt about that, we had the menu with paired wines both nights and could not fault them. However there are a few strange things about this hotel. 1) no Wi-Fi in the rooms, only in the public areas 2) doesn't serve any spirits - only its own wines. We were treated as if it was unusual to request a gin and tonic before dinner. 3) no jams or marmalades at breakfast but yet bread is supplied for toasting. When we asked if there was any preserves again we got the look as if this was a very strange request. 4) It needs to serve a proper fruit salad at breakfast, not just one choice of fruit. I admit these all sound like first world problems but these small changes would make such a difference to the guest experience. I don't think we have ever stayed anywhere in the world where you couldn't have a G&T before dinner or a spirit of choice after dinner. We were contacted by the hotel for feedback and I gave this feedback directly to them but received no response from them which is why I am now posting this on facebook. Their lack of response made me feel that they really don't care that much about guest feedback. We did the tour of the production facility which was really interesting with a very knowledgeable guide. Also please be aware this really is the middle of nowhere you have a 25 minute drive to get anywhere else and the dinner was so good we didn't want to go to another vineyard for a large lunch which meant there was little to do in this area. We went to Pinhao one day and had a lovely boat trip but I think 2 nights is enough at this hotel.
The location and the hotel are the stuff of dreams. Stunning setting, with incredible views. The food was all fresh from the Quinta and surrounding area, and dinner was amazing. The staff are very helpful, creating a very relaxing place.
"Beautiful Quinta with expectional wines"
My husband and I visited the quinta two weeks ago on our way to Pinhao. We stayed in a near by property and they had recommended we stop and visit their neighbors. We were greeted warmly by staff. We tried several of their wines and bought several others. Was pleasantly surprised that a wine I have enjoyed in the US was actually one of their label wines (Pomares). We noticed they also have rooms but wasn't able to see what they were like; the desk was busy and we didn't want to add to the stress. Overall it was a beautiful property with wonderful views of the Douro river and valley.
Beautiful place for some relaxing days, enjoying a perfect view, great wines and very good food. The region is perfect for relaxing moments. The olive form this "Quinta" is one of the best I ever tried.
