Europe / Portugal / Pinhão
Right at the heart of the Douro Valley in north Portugal, this villa with pool and game room affords spectacular views over the steep vineyard terraces producing one of the best wines in the region - unwind and enjoy a relaxing holiday in this corner of paradise, with breakfast served daily on your terrace with panoramic views!
Located at the edge of a rural hamlet, Villa Herica is a well-equipped villa for six guests (plus three on request), offering cook service on request. It also offers modern-day conveniences such as a local mobile phone and a tablet, for guests to use as a reference guide to the region.
Right next-door is luxury Vista Gloriose for 8 (plus three guests). Both villas can be rented together for larger parties (benefiting from a special discount) or individually. Included in one week rentals (or longer) at this property are added value extras such as: a complimentary “local gastronomy” meal; a visit to one of the Port producing Quintas with wine tasting; and weather permitting, a vineyard terraces picnic plus a two hour Rabelo boat ride on the Douro.
