Hidden in the hilly landscape of the Douro Valley, lies the beautiful design house Quinta do Olival. In addition to Pinta Houses, the painter and collector Miguel M. Pinto has also completely renovated and transformed this house into a tasteful, charming and relaxing holiday home. Miguel took inspiration for the design from the authentic farms in the area and the result is a wonderful mix of Portuguese authenticity with a contemporary and colourful design and modern comfort. Quinta do Olival is located high on a hill giving you beautiful panoramic views over the valley and the vineyards.

The house can accommodate 10 adults and 4 children and has inviting indoor and outdoor spaces. The house is decorated with a great eye for design: unique art pieces on the walls, brightly coloured rugs, the typical Portuguese tiles and striking design objects catch the eye. In addition to this exceptional interior, you will enjoy all the luxury and comfort that Quinta do Olival has to offer, such as: carefully selected bed linen, a fully equipped kitchen, modern bathrooms ans even an indoor pool. Outside, the green landscape of the Douro valley awaits you; after a dip in the private infinity pool you can enjoy the sun and the impressive views

The surroundings 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 services, such as having breakfast delivered to your door in the morning or having your meals prepared in the evening. This house is a great hideaway for the whole family, where you can be completely pampered and definitely want to stay.

The beautiful surroundings of Quinta do Olival are mainly known as an excellent wine region and the 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 (3.5 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 (20 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 (38 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 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 countryside. A stay at Pinta Houses can also be perfectly combined with a visit to the vibrant city of Porto.
