|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Quinta Souto Covo is situated in a very peaceful valley, one and a half hours drive from Porto and near the beautiful city of Viseu. The Douro River and Port wine area are nearby and historical towns such as Vila Real, Bragança and Coimbra are an easy day trip away. The views from the main house and the self-catering Lodge, are breathtaking. There is a natural spring pool on the terrace below the Lodge and down at the river a private 'beach' and swimming area with its own sunbaking terrace. The gardens are extensive and a pleasure to walk through and the sound of water follows you wherever you go.
Tony and Sherrin bought Quinta Souto Covo in 2006.
In 2009 after a huge renovation of the Main House and Lodge in the large, riverside grounds, they decided to share their labour of love with guests and have made friends for life in the wonderful people who have stayed there since.
They are passionate about Portugal, the life, food, wine and history and enjoy passing on their knowledge.
'You will be welcomed as guests and leave as friends,' as one guest wrote, ' more of a house party than a villa rental'.
Whether your choice is Self catering in the Lodge or B&B in the Main House, the Cottrells will ensure your total privacy but be close enough to help with every detail to make your stay memorable.
The Owner purchased this house in 2006
The Lodge( self accommodation choice) or the Main house are beautifully furnished with every little luxury to make your stay memorable.
The grounds and surrounding countryside are just breathtaking . The sound of water follows you everywhere from fountains, water channels and the river which flows through the garden. There are walks galore and beautiful terraces for the less energetic guest. It is perhaps the most beautiful area of Portugal, not so well known that there are hoards of tourists. The villages and city of Viseu nearby are full of history and some remarkable architecture and the two wine growing regions, Dão and Douro are within short driving distance, with very hospitable visits for wine tasting to be enjoyed.
Diverse, elegant and full of things to do , BEIRAS ALTAS and Quinta Souto Covo are a must for lovers of Portugal.
A wonderful setting. The quality and comfort of our room with its superb interior design was second to none and the views to the mountains and across the river were really beautiful. This place is magical, as indeed the breakfasts that we had. Thank you we will be back. Mr & Mrs. R. Barrett, Lewes, UK.
The lodge is so warm and welcoming, and it really is paradise, Robina Wilmot - Singapore.
