Casa da Capela
Detached holiday home on estate with swimming pool and vineyards and olive grove
Casa da Capela is one of the two detached houses on the quinta; it gets its name from the family chapel next to the house. This is the largest holiday home on the estate, suitable for up to 6 people. In front of the house you’ll find a terrace with a view of the beautiful garden with its old mulberry trees. The front door brings you to the spacious living room with two adjacent bedrooms. The well-equipped and spacious kitchen diner offers access to the private terrace on the side of the house. Behind the house you’ll find another bedroom and the bathroom. For your daily groceries and restaurants you can go to towns like Torre de Moncorvo (10 minutes) and Vila Flor, "the capital of olive oil". In Pocinho ( 20 minutes) you can get on the train and enjoy a breathtaking trip through the Douro valley. Hikers can enjoy the nearby 25,000 hectare nature reserve Vale do Yua or the little further away nature reserve of Douro Internacional (you can find hiking trails online). For a day of culture: visit the city of Vila Real with its famous palace and the gardens of Casa de Mateus (from the rosé). The Quinta also is a perfect base to discover this varied, still undiscovered area of Trás-os-Montes; you could try a castle route or visit the Park of Vale de Côa with its prehistoric cave paintings.
