    Beautiful & exclusive setting
    Private pool
    Great services & experiences

Hidden in the hilly landscape of the Douro Valley, lie the houses Casa Azul and Quinta do Cedro on the Pinta Houses estate. The two houses are designed and decorated by Miguel M. Pinto, a painter and collector whose family has been making olive oil and wine in the valley for many years. Miguel took inspiration for the design from farms in the area and the result is a stunning mix of Portuguese authenticity with a contemporary and colourful design and modern comfort. 

Casa Azul and Quinta do Cedro offer space for 4 people each and are surrounded by the green landscape of rolling hills and vineyards and olive groves. Both houses are furnished with a very good eye for design: beautiful art pieces on the walls, brightly coloured kitchens and window frames and eye-catching design objects. In addition to the unique decor, you will enjoy all the luxuries and comforts that Pinta Houses has to offer, such as: carefully selected bed linen, beautiful tableware, a modern bathroom and a lovely private pool. Outside you will find the beautiful landscape of the Douro valley and after a dip in the pool you can enjoy the sun and the panoramic views

The peaceful and green setting invites you to relax and get to know the Portuguese culture. In an authentic and exclusive setting you can enjoy wine tastings, walks along the Douro, and sailing trips on the river. Pinta Houses also offers various luxury services, such as the possibility of having breakfast delivered to your door in the morning or having your dinners fully catered for you and your guests. The estate is a beautiful hideaway, where you can be completely pampered by the team of Pinta Houses and where you definitely want to stay at least once. 

The houses are very private and the distance between them is about 1 minute. Therefore, you can very well rent the Pinta Houses together, for a holiday for two families or eight friends who appreciate the privacy of their own residence.

The area around Pinta Houses is especially known for its excellent wine region and the beautiful Douro River. The house is in a quiet location, so a car will come in handy if you want to explore the area. Driving along the river, small villages will take you to the culture of the country. Stop in one of the charming villages for lunch or dinner. You can also drop by one of the idyllic wine estates for a tour and a wine or port tasting. Each wine estate makes very unique wines, so it is highly recommended to visit several wine estates in the area. 

A nice place to visit in the neighbourhood is, for example, Lamego (18 km), a historical city with a cosy city centre with many terraces, medieval remains and small shops. In this city you will also find the Santuario Nossa Senhora dos Remedios, a church with a beautiful view that you reach via no fewer than 686 steps. Or visit Vila Real (42 km), a place with many stately mansions and go to the Palácio de Mateus or drive to Viseu (69 km), a lively city with a maze of old streets. 

The Douro Valley is also an excellent place for walking and cycling. Because the area is quite hilly, you will find most flat routes along the banks of the river. Of course, you can also admire the area from the water. From the river, the hills of the valley look very different and you can see the many vineyards and small villages. You can also rent kayaks or SUP-boards at some places.

You can fly to Porto (125 km) and drive along winding roads through the lush countryside. A stay at Pinta Houses can also be perfectly combined with a visit to the vibrant city of Porto.
