The Quinta de Abôl de Baixo is located in a 35 hectare estate complete with vineyards, orchards and gardens at the point where the Douro and Tamega rivers meet.
It’s origin is lost in the mist of time but earliest records go back to the 15th century and King Philip the 1st apparently had a part in its construction. A pretty regal beginning.
In effect, a stay here is a journey back into the middle ages, the small group of houses nestled on a verdant hillside still retain their old granite walls, black slabs and liberal use of old wood. Except that it also underwent a major refurbishment in 2006, which thankfully respected the original lines.
So what you get in the 21st century are a total of nine bedrooms – three of which are part of individual houses – that are comfortable and well furnished. Some even have their own whirlpool bathrooms. The main public area is the main house, which is a great place to socialise with the kind hosts or other guests. There’s a nice chess set in there by the way.
This area is also Portugal’s wine region par excellence and, produces the famed "Vinho Verde" that foreign travellers usually take a liking to. If you do eat or drink too much than spa and wellness treatments are available less than a kilometre away in Entre-os-Rios (literally Between the Rivers). Penafiel, a small town that is presumed to be the second oldest in Portugal is also nearby.
Indeed, this area is ancient and known for its archaeological treasures. Finds dating back to the Ancient Rome are particularly abundant.

Traumurlaub
Date of stay 12/08/2014
Wir haben im Quinta de Abo di Baixa einen wunderschönen Urlaub erlebt. Das Hotel ist mit sehr viel Geschmack restauriert und eingerichtet worden. Das Frühstück war immer sehr lecker und reichlich. Besonders der frisch ausgepresste Orangensaft hatte es uns angetan. Wir wurden sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit empfangen und haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt. Unserer Tochter hatte es am Pool sehr gut gefallen, der wirklich sehr schön unterhalb des Haupthauses liegt. Dass die Liegen und Schirme etwas kaputt waren war etwas schade. Aber das war auch wirklich das einzige, was nicht so ganz ok war. Wir können die Quinta de Abol di Baixa nur bestens empfehlen! Sogar unser vergessene Rucksack würde uns umgehend nachgeschickt.
