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.

"Vines, wines and comfort"
Lovely Quinta set among vines with views over the Duoro. Walk among the vines with spectacular views. Very informative wine tasting of very well made and excellent wines. Delicious dinner with wine pairings which were unusual combinations but interesting.
"Easter week end"
Interesting . A beautiful wine farm with a view over Douro Valley. The visit to caves and taste the wine , to walk on the farm and travel by train from train station - five minutes from hotel by car- to " Peso da Régua " is really nice. Diner in the hotel restaurant is a good experience. Calm and security to rest. The breakfast for the quality of the hotel would can be better. Must have hot plates.
My husband and I were only able to stay one night at Quinta Nova and easily could have enjoyed another although they were fully booked so had no rooms available. Previous reviews have mentioned the drive from Pinhao - truly 25-30 minutes on very narrow, highly twisty roads that make the Amalfi Coast seem easy. That said, the views were extraordinary in all directions and we had no regrets about the drive. Anna, the receptionist, was thoroughly professional and welcoming, walking through the property with us and explaining the wifi (in common areas only) and showing us our room. The room was luxurious, very comfortable, and had a door to the patio with a knock-out view. We went on a complementary wine tour with Eduardo, who was quite excellent in explaining how the wine was/is made, and who served us during the wine tasting that we chose to do. Dinner was delicious with prompt service. Breakfast the next morning had everything we could possibly want and more. We took a short walk before we had to leave in order to tour a quinta in Pinhao. No pictures really capture how gorgeous it is.
We visited the Quinta Nova for one night in April. The setting is very beautiful, the property is well kept, and the views of the vineyards and the Douro River are stunning. We had limited time so decided not to drive from Porto. The pros: Beautiful vineyards, small and intimate setting with few guests. Rooms are comfortable and well appointed. Breakfast is plentiful and fresh. Quality of food is good. Internet works well in public areas. Offered tour of the vineyards and had no issues getting wine and cheese plate delivered to terrace. Staff is polite. Lovely experience and certainly the highlight of our trip. Cons: We took the train instead of driving. Although I reconfirmed twice with Quinta Nova that we needed a pick up from Ferrão Station, no one was there when we got off the train. It took a phone call. Dinner starts at 8:00 p.m. Four couples including us were there at opening time. Not one staff member available to greet or sit guests. We all had to sit ourselves. Waiter seemed surprised when he finally showed up. He had to scramble to notify the rest of the staff that everyone was already seated and waiting for service. Service was good and attentive once they showed up. During breakfast same problem. Restaurant not opened or prepared when guests showed up. Once again they had to scramble to set up the buffet. Although there is construction going in for a new museum, the crane and construction did not bother our stay. The issue was the workers and engineers took over the entire outdoor dining room patio for their meetings for the entire afternoon, and the place was covered in paperwork and briefcases and unattended for hours. Sorry, but you folks need to conduct your meetings in one of the upstairs living rooms or in a separate area. Being in full view of guests in a public space is a poor choice and spoils the ambiance. Do not miss the opportunity to visit and stay at Quinta Nova. The prices are reasonable and a great value for money. The experience is unique and the setting is magnificent. A little more attention to detail and this place would get a five star rating.
"Construction in front of estate until June 2017"
We had a wonderful experience however- The low: We were shocked to see a giant crane in front of the main building upon arrival. That is quite naughty not too mention this when booking as we are visiting Quinta Nova for 2 reasons : quiet beauty and wine. Car had to be parked quite a way from reception and luggage trudged over cobble stones. Staff offered to help . We were told that the construction noise would not be noticed as we are in the back of the building which was true to a point. hmmm... I am sure Mr. Amorim (the owner) would be displeased if he were to find the same situation on his once a year holiday. They should either mention the construction or offer some sort of compensation. I paid full price so I expect to receive full package. The high: Great service and of course amazing wine - It's incredible that kind staff will make up for any inconvenience. A big Thanks to Deborah and Elias for taking care of us. The manager organized flowers for my wife's birthday which was perfect. The hikes around the estate were memorable and not difficult. A really special place with super service . Wine tour and guide super !
