- Along the banks of the Corgo River, Quinta do Vallado is one of the most famous winery estates in the Douro Valley with a history going all the way back to 1716. It once belonged to the pioneering port wine maker, Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira, and still belongs to her descendents today. It is now a modern, luxury boutique hotel, but also with more traditional style accommodation in the old manor house, and you can expect the very best in comfort, service, and of course food and wine. It also has spa facilities, an outdoor swimming pool and a jacuzzi. THE ACCOMMODATION: They have a range of lovely rooms and suites 5 of them in the old manor house, and 8 in a new, rather unusual looking, modern wing, built back in 2012 mainly from slate, another thing this region of Portugal is well known for. The manor house rooms are a bit more traditional though it would be a stretch to call them rustic. The emphasis is generally on comfort and modern style, something which is even more in abundance in the sleek modern wing where the rooms all come with balconies and some superb views. The pick of the bunch there is the suite; a nicely designed 43 sq m space with a living room, bedroom and a balcony looking out on the vineyards and the river. There is an excellent buffet breakfast to be enjoyed every morning plus you can treat yourself to some great evening meals, and snacks throughout the day. Food lovers will also appreciate the chef’s own cooking classes, ask at reception, or at the restaurant, for details. Not forgetting the wine; Quinta do Vallado is one of the most famous vineyard & winery in the Douro Valley with over 100 acres of vine and a long history of producing fantastic port as well as Douro Valley whites and reds. And, as an extra, they also produce their own extra virgin olive oil. All can be sampled throughout your stay and you can of course also buy some to take home. Wine tasting sessions can be had too, as well as cellar and vineyard READ MORE
- Very near Coimbra, the 5 star Quinta das Lagrimas is part agroturismo, part Royal Palace and part luxury spa hotel, and had been a quiet sanctuary for Kings and Emperors for centuries, before recently opening its doors to paying guests. It is also the place where one of Portugal’s most infamous love stories took place; the story of Pedro & Inês. This was the XIVth-century love affair between Prince Pedro and Inês de Castro which lurched, as they all do, from deep romance to deep tragedy when Inês was murdered on the orders of King Alfonso, Pedro’s father. This famous story inspired the name of the property; Quinta das Lagrimas/The Estate of Tears, and these days it offers superb luxury in a setting that is uniquely atmospheric and compelling. THE ACCOMMODATION: There is a great choice of B&B rooms and suites, ranging from more standard doubles to superb, top of the range, suites. Even the most ‘basic’ of rooms though are lovingly styled and come with a real touch of class. It is a five star hotel and you can expect the best in comfort and facilities but Quinta das Lagrimas differs in that it is a grand, stately property with a romantic, cultured, air that is impossible to find in more modern hotels. It is a joy to just wander around and soak in the atmosphere. Add to that the extensive botanical gardens outside with so many rare plant species from around the world, the excellent spa facilities, the indoor and outdoor swimming pools, the nine hole on site golf course and the two award winning gourmet restaurants, and you really have a break to remember. The seasonal restaurants serve up organic food that is locally sourced as much as is possible, ‘ Market Cuisine’ they like to call it here, but with much of the herbs, vegetables and fruits being sourced even closer, on the grounds themselves, picked fresh from the organic ‘Chef’s Garden’. THE LOCATION: Quinta das Lagrimas is just outside the charming university city of Coimbra, in the centre north of Portugal, roughly half way between Lisbon and Porto. Coimbra was once Portugal’s capital and has an enormous READ MORE

- Agroturismo Alves de Matos has B&B accommodation in a beautifully restored 16th century farmhouse midway between Portugal’s two largest cities, Lisbon and Porto, while also being close to the medieval city of Coimbra and many nice beaches. It is a place to relax and be pampered with a range of spa facilities of offer, but even if spa treatments are not your thing the peace, tranquility and beauty of the estate is enough to de-stress the most tired of minds. THE ACCOMMODATION: They have a great range of rooms to sleep up to four (The family rooms), all of them feel new and relatively modern in style but some display the odd rustic touch too, in line with the rich history of the farmhouse and the estate. All the rooms are super comfortable and match the standards of any good boutique hotel, as do their generous, quality fresh breakfasts. (You can also order snacks during the day, and, if you give a little bit of advance notice, evening meals too.) The spa is of course a major draw at Quinta Alves de Matos with facilities including a sauna, Turkish bath, hydromassage bath, contrast bath, min gym, and a Jacuzzi/hot tub both indoors and out. They have a range of treatments too and out in the lovely gardens you’ll find a swimming pool, sun loungers and fruit orchards from where you are welcome to pick your own fruit; peaches, lemons and oranges for example. THE LOCATION: The location is ideal for those making the journey from Lisbon to Porto or vice versa. As mentioned above it is also very near the lovely old university city of Coimbra and some very good beaches at Leiria on the the Pinhal Litoral just 14km away.

Other well known places like Fátima, Nazaré, Alcobaça and Figueira da Fo are all also within an hours drive. WHAT OTHER GUESTS SAY: “Exceptional place! It is family business.
