CASA DO SALGUEIRAL
Up to 18 guests | 3 bedrooms & 4 apartments (9 bedrooms in total)
This house is located inside the demarcated Douro Valley winemaking region, between Mesão Frio and Peso da Régua, and has a perfect location to explore this unique territory.
Surrounded by the typical Douro landscape, filled with vineyards which are planted in staircase-like terraces, it is the ideal place for spending family holidays or for a group of friends wishing to relax and explore the Douro.
The estate was completely renovated maintaining the typical architectural traits of the original building, which dates to the 17th century, and the decoration combines antique pieces and classic furniture bringing the long history of the house to the present moment.
In the main building there are 3 bedrooms – one twin and two double – and 3 independent apartments (two for 2 guests and another that accommodates up to 4 people). The bedrooms can be found on the 1st floor, alongside a communal living room with a fireplace and a dining room, and all are equipped with air conditioning.
The apartments are located on the ground floor and they’re all equipped with a kitchen, air-con and TV. These are perfect for those seeking some extra privacy or for couples with children. Two of them have a double bedroom and one bathroom and another has two bedrooms, one double and one twin, and two bathrooms.
Besides the main building, there is another 2-bedroom apartment which used to be the caretakers’ house, and also has a twin bedroom, a double bedroom and two bathrooms. There’s also a beautiful small chapel, which can be visited during the day, and a lawn perfect to relax and enjoy some meals al fresco. The swimming pool was built on a terrace next to the chapel and offers beautiful views over Santa Marta de Penaguião and the vineyards.
The old granite presses were converted into a games room with snooker, games tables, a TV and a lounge area, and are a great bet to spend some quality time together.
In some rooms and apartments it’s possible to add a bed or a baby crib at an extra cost.
Despite not being possible to use the main house’s kitchen, breakfast is available upon request and it’s also possible to order home-cooked meals from local and traditional restaurants to make the most of the stay at this special house.
