The Vintage House Hotel, Douro

The Vintage House Hotel, Pinhao, Douro Valley

Guide price from £1,240 pp


Short description

A charming Douro Valley hotel converted from an 18th-century wine lodge


Recommended for:
Food & wine | Relaxation

Portugal's Douro Valley is one of Europe’s oldest and most enchanting wine regions, and The Vintage House is steeped in romantic history. 

Located right beside the river in the quaint town of Pinhão, it is possible to get here from Porto by train or boat; the dock is just steps away from the hotel and there is even an entrance to the hotel directly from the platform of the charming railway station. 

The hotel has been converted from an 18th-century wine lodge, and is full of original character, antiques and memorabilia, most notably in the Library Bar, where a crackling fireplace and an old wooden beamed ceiling add to the long-ago atmosphere.

There are just 50 rooms, and four suites, almost all of them overlooking the river. It’s a view shared by the outdoor pool – a splendid and soothing spot, where it’s perfectly possible to spend entire days. However, boat trips and exploring the town and surrounding wine estates are not to be missed.

On return the wine academy and shop and delectable dining add to the sense of extreme relaxation. The Rabelo Restaurant stretches onto a terrace overlooking the Douro River and serves local specialities including the finest Jamón Ibérico and suckling pig belly.
