The unique combination of natural factors such as the schist soils, solar exposure and a privileged micro-climate of unique features, combined with the mastery and human intelligence, have created the greatest of the classic wines - The Port Wine!

Globally recognized, the Port Wine was the first to be produced in a legally demarcated region, since the year 1756.

The region and the Douro River which gives it the name, are classified by UNESCO since 2001 as a World Heritage Site, and constitute a patrimony consecrated and acclaimed worldwide that is unthinkable not visit.

Wander through the jagged hillsides, walking or cycling, either cross the calm waters of the rivers Douro and Pinhão, by boat or kayak, are some of the activities you can enjoy. Just put on the backpack and go ahead.

Do you know a better way to perfect your senses?

Come admire the beautiful railway station of Pinhão and its frontages decorated with tiles and dare to travel through the Douro railway line, otherwise, get in the car and set out to the discovery of the modern neighbor cities, such as Peso da Régua, Lamego or Vila Real.

This property has been a family refuge, over the past fifteen years.

It's where we, together with our family and friends, shared so many important events of our lives.

Unforgettable moments of happiness, fun and great emotions!

Many are those that over the years have insistently shown the interest and the willingness to enjoy this "exclusive space".

We have been resisting as much we can, to open "our refuge", beyond the restricted circle of our relations.

We finally achieved a family consensus, and decided to open for other families or groups of friends, the possibility to enjoy all what our property can offer, while a space of leisure, magic and happiness.

We sincerely hope that during your stay at the property, you feel it as your own space, and when is time for departure, you get the sensation that you must return again.

Owner's Response: Rick and his friends gave us the privilege of staying by your property, "Casa do Riacho". Very friendly and humorous persons. Easy communication since the first contact, and an extremely seriousness in the use of the house and all the facilities. At the departure moment, remains the certainty that Rick and friends will be always welcome, and we have no doubts recommending them to any host. Thanks Rick!
