SKU: TM-PT-5160-03 Category:

Casa do Caseiro is the middle one of three semi-detached holiday homes on the estate; it’s suitable for for up to 4 people. This used to be the house of the caretaker (caseiro) and that’s where the house gets its name from. You’ll enter the house through the enclosed terrace. There are two bedrooms bordering on the spacious living room; one with a double bed and the other with two single beds. From the kitchen window, you have a view over the vineyards and olive tree groves surrounding the quinta. The bathroom is well-equipped with a bathtub/shower, washbasin, toilet and bidet. 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.
