GPS Coordinates: Latitude 41.1899073953 Longitude -7.54374087386
The Vintage House Hotel is located by the Douro river in an enchanting and calm landscape where old estate properties and large vineyards rule. The region is some 250,000 hectares in extension out of which 40,000 hectares are vineyards.
The Hotel is located 120 km east of Porto and easy to reach by the highway or if you’d rather have a more calm and romantic way, the hotel can also be reached by train through the lovely landscapes of the ‘Douro Line’ or by riverboat, a different and very special and scenic way to travel.
Whilst exploring the region there are many traditional handicrafts to appreciate; hand made carpets, baskets, the traditional black pottery and much more.
The Region of Douro is divided in three distinct areas with slightly different climates even though a characteristic of the region is cold winters and hot and dry summers.
