Vintage House Hotel  

Port wines and picture-perfect views

A tranquil 19th-Century wine estate with a beautiful riverside setting in the heart of the Douro Valley.

Sensitively turned into a boutique hotel by renowned port wine makers, Taylor’s, the halcyon setting of Vintage House is rolling hills, wisteria walls, river views and a 19th-century steam train station. It combines the best of vintage – cherished antiques, wine memorabilia and wooden beamed ceilings – with a pretty riverside pool and a charming restaurant spilling out onto a honey-hued terrace.

Why we love Vintage House Hotel

  • Rabelo Restaurant – a beautiful setting, delicious regional cooking and the best Douro wines.

  • All rooms and suites have a balcony with river or vineyard views.

  • Distinguished wine flight tastings held in The Library Bar.

  • Easy to go vineyard hopping, you’re close to Quinta da Roeda, Quinta da Bonfim and Quinta das Carvalhas.

A stand-out feature is The Rabelo Restaurant, which serves up regional dishes with Douro wines and plenty of fresh fish. We also love the old-world feel of the comforting Library Bar, where you can curl up by the fire with a glass of port.

What's included

Breakfast at the River Room.

Enjoy a game of tennis, take a walk through the surrounding nature or kayak down the River Douro. Return to the hotel for a special wine tasting. Known as a Wine Flight, you will taste a variety of red and white wines accompanied by Portuguese cheese and ham.

The hotel has abolished single-use plastic stirrers, straws and water bottles. The restaurant gives preference to regional produce and activities and tours are organised with local guides.
