Quinta do Gato is a beautiful design house, situated on a gentle hill in Northern Portugal. Besides Pinta Houses and Quinta do Olival, the painter and collector Miguel M. Pinto has also completely renovated and transformed this house into a tasteful and relaxing holiday home. Miguel took inspiration for the design from farms in the area and the result is a wonderful mix of Portuguese authenticity with contemporary design and modern comfort. Quinta do Gato is located high on a hill giving you stunning panoramic views over the Douro Valley with its many vineyards and orchards.

This holiday home can accommodate 6 adults and 4 children and has inviting lounge areas, both inside and out. The house is decorated with a good sense of design: unique art shines on the walls and vintage furniture and the typical Portuguese tiles catch the eye. The four bedrooms are spacious and have modern bathrooms. You will also enjoy all the comforts that Quinta do Gato has to offer, such as: carefully selected bed linen, a fully equipped kitchen and a private swimming pool. Outside, the green landscape of the Douro valley awaits you; after a dip in the pool you can enjoy the sun and the impressive views. 

The surroundings of Quinta do Gato invite you to relax and get to know the Portuguese culture. In an authentic and hidden setting, you can enjoy wine tastings, walks along the Douro and boat trips on the river. In addition, there is the possibility of various additional services, such as having breakfast delivered to your door in the morning or having your meals prepared in the evening. This house is an exceptional hideaway for a group of friends or family in a beautiful setting.

The green surroundings of Quinta do Gato are mainly known as an excellent wine region and the impressive Douro river. The house is quietly located, so a car will come in handy if you want to explore the area. Driving along the river, small villages will take you into 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 winery produces very unique wines, so it is highly recommended to visit several wineries in the area. 

In the nearby village of Armamar (2.5 km), you will find some supermarkets for your daily needs and a few restaurants. A nice place to visit in the neighbourhood is, for example, Lamego (19 km), a historical town 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 (37.5 km), a place with many stately mansions and go to the Palácio de Mateus or drive to Viseu (71 km), a lively city with a maze of old streets. 

The Douro valley is also excellent 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 (128 km) and drive along winding roads through the lush landscape. A relaxed stay at Quinta do Gato can therefore be perfectly combined with a visit to the bustling city of Porto.
