Offering an outdoor swimming pool with sweeping Douro Valley views, Quinta Manhas Douro is surrounded by nature and also features a restaurant. The on-site dinner was very good. The savoury pasties de nata and duck were very tasty. Andrea was a charming and welcoming reception person too. The room, location, staff and food made this a lovely Douro stay.
Located 1.2 mi from the center of Provesende, this property features a garden with BBQ facilities. It is set on the grounds of a working farm producing olive oil and wine. The house was very big, each bedroom with its own bathroom and very clean. The terrace was particularly amazing, with the most amazing view over the Douro Valley while having breakfast. Be aware that you need a car to get there and you should bring food with you since the closest restaurants are in the next town. We took a tour of the winery and a did a tasting of Porto and olive oil which was really great. I fully recommend this place if you like to take a break and just relax with amazing views.
Casa da Jesus is located in Provesende and offers a terrace. The air-conditioned accommodation is 11 miles from Vila Real, and guests benefit from private parking available on site and free WiFi. Provesende was probably not the most sensible choice for an over night stop in October especially as we left Porto 3 hours later than planned. By the time we had wound our way along the Douro Valley and up the mountain to the village it was unforgivably late. Cold and tired, it was misty, dark and the village deserted when we arrived at around 11.00 o'clock. Casa da Jesus is, thankfully, easy to find and fitted with a bell to toll, which we did, rousing all the dogs for a kilometer. It also caught the attention of the next door nighbour, a resolute young lady member of thr Fire Brigade. She rousted the house owner who arrived with his wife to inform us 1.) that the house was not ready and 2.) he had told B**king.com of this fact and 3.) he had refused the booking. However, Portuguese hospitality won the day and the Fire-person, the owner's wife and all set to and cleaned a bathroom and made a bed for us at the same time as sitting us down with a fresh loaf, cheese and fruit for supper. History will be unable to realise just how grateful we were for this amazing show of good will. Casa da Jesus is perched on top of a serious hill, overlooking miles of the Douro Valley, the vineyards and distant blue mountains. The silence at night has to be experienced to be believed. The house was not set up for two foolish old Englishmen turning up late, but is perfectly suited for a family or group for a longer stay. Clean, well equipped and in a great location it is a lovely place to stay. Thank-you all at Provesende for your open hearted welcome.
Set in Gouvães do Douro in the Norte region, Casa D. Antónia features a balcony and mountain views. The property has river views and is 21 mi from Vila Real. Beautiful house. Very friendly hosts who gave us a tour of their vineyard. They also allow guests to use their swimming pool which has amazing views over the Douro valley. Welcome tray was a lovely bonus.
A tiny and unspoiled town. Not much going on in the off-season but a lovely place to stroll and explore. Magnificent views over the very-steep vineyards of the Pinhao river. We were the only car, and very-obviously-tourists, driving through the main square, with the men playing cards in the local store, the women chatting as they walked along. Incredibly quiet and peaceful place.
Quiet little town we passed through on our way to the Hotel, Quinta Manhas Douro. We stopped at the pizza restaurant (not just pizza!) for delicious homemade soup and fresh bread. The Hotel was situated high up the adjacent mountain - and we wound our up and up with fabulous views. Great Hotel, as long as you have the superior room with the terrace.. stunning view over the village below and the mountains from the window and the terrace. Fabulous breakfast, very friendly and helpful staff.
Didn't really like Provesende it's a very small town with nothing to do. You have to drive quite a bit to a bigger town by the douro rIver called Pinhao to go on some wine tours and tours on the river. Also there are no restaurants in town except a very small house that serves meals but usually fully booked.
Attractive village high in the mountains in the lovely Douro Valley. Around 15 mins drive along steep winding road from Pinhao. A few cafe bars, restaurant, handicraft shop and very small grocery shop.
A wonderful old building with exceptional hosts in a small interesting village with amazing views, plenty of wineries, walks, drives etc. The accommodation was very clean, with an excellent breakfast, and dinner with wine and port if you would like. Kitchen facilities are also available, plus a pool and garden, a wonderful place to have a break and relax in an amazing setting.
We spent 3 nights, 2 full days in Provesende at Quinta Manhas Douro. Both days were spent hiking. The first day around the Provesende hills and the second day to Pinhao, which is a steep downhill. Fortunately, you can catch a taxi in Pinhao for only 15 euros to bring you back to Provesende. We were so happy to be out in the countryside in this beautiful region.
The on-site dinner was very good. The savoury pasties de nata and duck were very tasty. Andrea was a charming and welcoming reception person too. The room, location, staff and food made this a lovely Douro stay.
Friendly staff. Remote and quiet location
The beautiful integration of old and new
The service, the friendliness, the environment. The manor house is fantastic. Dinner in the lounge of the house is a second to none experience. Provesende is very quaint and beautiful. Highly recommend and hope to repeat with more time.
The sympathy and kindness of Mr. Luis and Mrs. Teresa. Very clean and comfortable house. Exceptional breakfast, with many treats made by Mrs. Teresa. We will definitely return.
It's a lovely quirky place to stay, like staying in a friend's house!!
Quiet. view. welcome. meals on site. excellent breakfast.
