Paradise found in one of the loveliest parts of Portugal
Paradise Found! It’s as simple as that, for here we have wonderfully converted 19th century granite house, set within 12 acres of land and vineyards with views to absolutely die for, as the gorgeous Marão hills fall steeply onto the water’s edge of the emblematic Douro River. This is the ideal house for a group or a family vacation - Please take in account that the house can only be rented in full.
This isn’t just Port wine country, it is also one of the most stunning regions in the whole of Portugal and everything we’ve just mentioned really does take your breadth away.
As you arrive at Marco de Canavesses via the narrow winding roads, some are not for the faint of heart. Each one of the seven rooms plus the cottage (accommodating 2 people) are built on different levels as if to ensure everyone gets an equal views, and there are even a couple of terraces from which to enjoy it all in peace and tranquillity, preferably with a glass of Port in hand. We’ve almost forgotten about the interior, but even here, the Quinta do Cão does the place justice with an up to date decoration, which unlike many places in northern Portugal is neither heavy or dark.
Public areas further take a billiards room with an independent entrance from the garden, plus living room with fireplace, DVD, video and Cable television. Yet with so much nature at one’s disposal, we suggest foregoing the TV and simply enjoy fine walks by the river, or the pontoon a bit fishing or simply recharging those batteries. Kids may even meet up with a host of farm animals in and around the house
