This wonderfully situated 17th century manor house is owned by a real Count, no less, and has been in his family’s hands since its inception. Indeed, the feeling of tradition and heritage here is palpable, yet the atmosphere is by no means stuffy or aristocratic - the Count himself, for example, will proudly show guests around his family home.

The view it affords from its position high above the Lima valley is marvellous and certainly, the view to the vineyards and gardens outside the terrace are hard to beat. Yet Calheiros has so much more to offer than fine panoramas.

The building itself is one of the most imposing and elegant in the region and just getting there is by way of a fine entrance with its illustrious gateway, beautiful tree-lined drive and stone fountain. The rooms themselves are excellent, whilst the interior is notable for its fine pieces of antique furniture and paintings. Horse riding can be arranged at the property and those interested in the art of the wine production can indulge in wine tasting or visit the House’s own vineyards.

Extraordinary location with a stunning view
Date of stay 19/08/2018
A lovely piece of earth with an extraordinary count, who welcomed us personally. The count himself and his family is living in this „castle“ and he showed us the house and gardens proudly. There are 20 rooms for tourists only and it’s normally quiet and nice. The interior gives you the feeling as if you are in a museum, very interesting but also a little dark. But there are lots of places in the garden and yard (pool, tennis court) to spend time.

Amazing Experience

A truely great hospitality experience. The family treated us as if we were a guest is their home. The setting is beautiful and the main house is as pretty as the picture. As a 30 year hospitality and retail professional, it's always a joy to be reminded what the business is about, they have it right.
