Toutes les informations sur le logement proposé par Maria João Hämig Aires

Quinta das Fontainhas, in the heart of the Douro Valley, is the ideal place to relax and live a genuinely rural experience. The house is a rebuilt old cellar in the middle of a small vineyard. It has all the comfort and amenities of a high-quality rural cottage. The house has air conditioning, heating and a glazed wood burning stove. The swimming pool and all the property has a breath-taking view over the mountains and the river. There are two outdoor patios, a large stone table and a barbecue.

Le logement
Quinta das Fontainhas is located in the heart of the Douro - World Heritage Area and Ecological Reserve - at about 500m altitude, overlooking the Douro Valley.

It consists of one hectare of vineyards that extend over 19 terraces. The presence of olive trees is also significant, many of them centenary. It is the ideal place to relax with family or friends and live a genuinely rural experience.

The house - an old cellar from the late 19th century - has been completely rebuilt. The predominance of schist, the traditional stone of the region, as well as the architectural solution chosen, allow the building to merge into the landscape, respecting local rules and the environment.

It has a swimming pool inserted in the middle of the vineyards from where it is possible to enjoy a breath-taking landscape, which also happens from any other point of the farm, including the house itself, whose torn windows make the sunset and dawn magical moments.

The interior decoration is a mix of rusticity, classicism, comfort and modernity. The living room is large and extends in open spaceto an upper floor (fous steps above) where the kitchen and dining area are located. In the upper floor it has a suite, two more double bedrooms and a second bathroom.
Guests can enjoy central heating and air conditioning throughout the house, which also has a glazed wood burning stove that works like a fireplace and is fuelled by firewood.

There are two outdoor patios, a large stone table and a barbecue.

There is no meal service, but some food is available at the entrance as well as some basic products in the cupboard. The olive oil produced with the olives of the farm can be consumed during the entire stay.

Some bottles of wine will be available to guests through the Honesty Bar system. The payment corresponding to the quantity of bottles consumed will be made at the end of the stay.

The cleaning service is optional, except for the pool, which must be maintained (by the owners) twice a week, during the period of use by guests.

An information pack - about the operation of the house and household appliances, wine tourism suggestions, private boat trips, cultural, gastronomic and sports programs - will be given to guests at the entrance.

These programs are not included in the price, but can be organized by the owners - upon request. For nature lovers and tracking there are several trails to be explored in the surrounding areas.

Où se situe le logement

Valença do Douro, Viseu, Portugal

Valença do Douro, the small village with a few hundred inhabitants where Quinta das Fontainhas is located, is known by its breathtaking views. It is an authentic Douro Valleys' belvedere. The house is not in the village. It is located in our vineyard 300 m distant and a bit lower than Valença do Douro (at 350 m altitude) oriented South/West.

Fernando and I are passionate about the Douro, nature and wine. I am the principal hostess. I was a university teacher but dedicated a great part of my life to publishing and to my literary agency. The acquisition of our property in Douro caused a radical switch. I trained in viticulture and created Slow Douro Valley, focused on slow tourism and custom wine tour design My husband, a former magistrate and lawyer, who has worked in the European Commission for 25 years, is currently involved in national and international conferences as well as in writing articles on Europe. Whenever possible, we work as a team in our farm. We like to welcome guests in person, so we can provide a more informal and warm ceck-in. This also allows us to provide the necessary information in a direct and more enlightening way. Most of our children, live and work abroad in three different continents, but visit us quite often and are also very fond of our Quinta.
