Description from manager


We invite you to have a look at our video of the house on ‘you toob’ - just go online and input this ID SX9zJZ3W3VQ

In 1956, this former school building held its first lessons in the hilltop village in the heart of the stunning Douro Valley.

50 years later the school building was rescued and in the following years a project was created to transform it into what is now a very high quality construction designed to provide you a taste of the World Heritage Site known as the Douro Valley.

Completely private, it overlooks the stunning landscape of vineyards and olive groves of the Douro Valley as far as the eye can see.

Your first reaction is to breath in and appreciate the natural peaceful beauty and yet these wonderful elements are only just over an hour from Porto International airport.

As you read on you will discover that there is lots to do for all the family and all age groups.

We and our super housekeeper Carla are here to make sure you make the most of your visit to the Douro and the North of Portugal.

What makes this holiday home different?

1.Breakfast is freshly made and served for you every morning at a time convenient to you do you can start the day with a smile and no stress!

2. Upon request and where possible we can receive a pre-arrival shopping list, and have it stored in the kitchen!

3. Carla can make dinner at home for you

4. We can provide you many suggestions for places to go for dinner in the local area

5. We can help you plan day trips and excursions for all age groups – both before you arrive and during your stay.

6. When remaining at the house for the day or evening enjoy activities for both adults and children to enjoy – for example board games, garden games, pool table, wi-fi, satellite TV, good music sound system etc.

We have a 'can do' mentality and out pro-active attitude and mindset is what makes the difference between a good holiday and truly memorable one!

House Description


The house is comprised of the original school building all renovated tastefully and with very high spec and presented in a quirky fun way with superbly thought out reminders of its heritage/roots.

The other part of the house is a new modern construction and the whole thing comes together in a well presented fusion of traditional and contemporary.

The daytime living space is fabulous!

High ceilings, big bright open window spaces, this huge open plan space is subtly divided into three areas. The quirky fun hallway and 'school themed' part with black board and original school desks provides nostalgic fun for adults and nowadays novelty fun for kids who often can't believe desks like those existed!

The other two areas as you can see from the picture gallery include a good sized dining area, ideal for indoor gatherings to enjoy great food and wine and the spacious relaxed lounge area. Note both these areas are served by a double sided central fireplace, a nice feature at any time of the year but naturally it comes into its own during the winter season.

The kitchen is modern, well equipped and very pleasant to be in if you enjoy cooking as a therapeutic pass time.

There are 4 very comfortable good sized bedrooms all en-suite, which accommodate 8 people. However the twin bedroom has trundle beds allowing for another 2 adults and in the master bedroom there is a cute sofa bed ideal for another person to sleep.


There is a 'pool house' outside just a few steps away which is a superb entertainment area for all. Pool table, good music sound system and wi-fi are all provided and there is comfortable seating too for you to sit and relax.

All the rooms in the house enjoy wi-fi coverage and are air-conditioned for your comfort.

The pool is a good size for leisure and enjoys superb views across the valley.

Outdoor tables, deck chairs, sun parasols and a built in BBQ are all provided for your comfort. There are even out door games such as garden dominos provided.

So here's a brief summary of what you get as standard during your stay with us
