Fernando's house will deliver beyond your expectations -guaranteed. It is simply outstanding. The house is perched high above the Douro river with sweeping views and extraordinary comfort. We spent a week at Casa Da Ribaduoro and lived in the lap of style and luxury continually . The infinity edge swimming pool was a centre of most of our living, including cooling off, dining by the pool & evening drinks that often went on until the lights dimmed around 11:30. The house is the star of the valley and is held in high regard by the locals. My recommendation is that you enjoy the hospitality of Fernando and spend as much time as you have at Casa da Ribadouro.

This is a beautiful place, the photos are accurate but don't do it justice. The villa is a modern design which works very well - all four bedrooms are ensuite and all open onto the garden and pool and have fantastic views across the Douro. It has been very well furnished and all of the fittings, furniture, mattresses and bedding were top quality. There was a helpful folder containing local information and a very thoughtful welcome present of fruit, local wine and water. Helena who is the housekeeper, checked us in and out and was delightful. We met her by Mosteiro railway station which worked well - we would not have been able to find the villa on our own because it is quite off the beaten track. The pool was a good size. It is not heated but we were happy to swim in it in early October - it was slightly bracing but fine. We loved the games room and enjoyed some great games of pool in the evenings. There was also a great book collection with some interesting and unexpected books - a collection of Robert Frost's poetry for example, which you don't see in every place you stay! We found this a brilliant place to chill out and relax. We visited Quinta Pacheca for a wine tasting tour which was good fun. We had lunch at their restaurant first and the food was the best that we ate whilst in Portugal. Whilst staying at the villa we also visited the Gentleman restaurant in Resende which serves very good local food - it was busy so we would recommend booking. Otherwise we tended to cook in and relax in the evenings rather than drive. The only thing that didn't work quite so well for us was that sometimes communication prior to our visit was slow, for example we didn't get instructions about where to meet Helena until late on the morning we were arriving, which we found a bit disconcerting. However once we arrived at the villa everything was fine. We would very happily stay here again.

We all had such a lovely relaxing stay and were constantly taken away by the amazing views and beautiful scenery, it was truly incredible waking up in the clouds every morning. Even though there was a language barrier with Helena (the housekeeper) with a little help of (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) translate she was very helpful and informative. The villa was very stylish and clean - We loved the games room. Overall this is perfect for a relaxing, chilled break in the unspoiled mountains. Fernando is a very helpful host and was very accommodating to our needs!

We had a wonderful stay in this house a few days ago. The house is very well equipped. We all enjoyed very much the swimming pool, 'matraquilhos', snooker table and ping pong. The Douro view is simply awesome! Thank you Fernando and Helena! We hope to come back again in the future!

Our stay in this villa could no have been bettered. It is a bit off the beaten track, but the stunning views more than make up for this. The house is extremely comfortable and well equipped. We had a superb time here and would not hesitate in returning.
