Isolated from the outside world, among the vineyards and terraces, Quinta de Sta Marinha harbors a Guesthouse with the most fantastic view of the Douro River.

The uniqueness of its architecture lies in perfect balance with nature and the landscape shaped over the centuries by the culture of Porto Wine.

Ideal for a weekend break or a longer stay we welcome you to enjoy the UNESCO classified landscape of Douro Valley.

The space

The Guest house is a recently opened structure with all the modern commodities that blends in perfectly with the surrounding landscape.

You will enjoy private bedrooms with private bathrooms facing one of the most incredible views from the Douro River Valley.

If you fancy reading you can take your time at the library discovering a variety of Portuguese and local authors.

Guest access

This listing is for 1 bedroom with a Queen bed. If you need more rooms we have 3 extra rooms (1 room with a Queen bed and 2 rooms with 2 single beds and a sofa bed) and a Suite with a King bed and a sofa bed available.

The guests have access to all the Guest House: the living room, the kitchen, the library, the swimming pool.

Other things to note

VERY IMPORTANT! The house is inside a farm and so the drop pin on the listing points to the entrance of the farm and not to the house. You should look for the little chapel called "Miradouro de Santa Marinha" in Castedo and the entrance to the farm is a brown gate on your right just before the chapel on the road that leads to it. Then you will take a dirt road, pass a crossing and enter a vineyard on a steep slope. The house is at the end of the vineyard on the left.

Our stay at Cidalia's was one of the highlights of our trip. Her accomodation is luxurious, and her generosity and warmth makes the stay memorable. And did I mention the view? It will take your breath away! Eating Cidalia's delicious breakfast on the balcony, with the Douro River winding through the valley below, is a wonderful way to start the day. We cannot recommend Cidalia's accomodation highly enough.

Cidalia lives at one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to! The view is breathtaking! I especially enjoyed being surrounded by almost only the soft sounds of nature! Cidalia helped us with anything we asked for and cooked delicious dinners for us! We have had three amazing days and would definitely recommand it to anybody!!!

Cidália's Quinta is simply amazing. She gave us a warm welcome and showed us the house. The room was impeccable and lovely. The view is just stunning and the ambiance in the quinta is fantastic to have a few relaxing days. we were so in love with the place that we decided to postpone our visit to the local vineyards just to enjoy the tranquillity and the terrific swimming pool with an incredible view. The day we arrived other 3 couples were there and Cidália made a delicious dinner for all of us that we really enjoyed. We didn't have any trouble finding the place with Cidália's instructions. If you have a car the place is very well located to explore the surroundings. It's easy to go to Pinhao and Tua where you can find restaurants, guided tours and wine tastings in local Quintas and do a boat trip in the Douro river. The local town of Alijó is just 10 min away and there you can find supermarket, gas station, pharmacy and even hospital. If you go to Alijó we recommend you go to Pelourinho for an authentic Portuguese dinner. The veal steak is incredible, so is the grelada mixta or bacalau frito. Just arrive before 8 cause is tiny and always full. The desserts are very good too! Yet, if you prefer to saty at the Quinta, the house has an equipped kitchen to prepare simple meals and Cidália will prepare a really nice breakfast for you each morning. Definitely the best stay and experience in our 10-day road trip in Portugal. Thank you very much for you hospitality Cidália, we hope we can come back soon!

WOW--WHAT AN AMAZING HOME, HOSTESS AND VIEW! This home is in the middle of a beautiful vineyard high above the Douro River. It can be a little challenging to find but so worth it! Cidália is welcoming, warm and makes you feel like family. She makes a wonderful breakfast of fruits from her vineyard and lots of other good food. And if you decide to have her make a dinner for you, it will be the best meal of your vacation! Have a wonderful, fun day driving to Tua, take the little train to Pinhau, enjoy lunch and wine tasting and then take a little boat on the Douro back to Tua. Or just enjoy a relaxing day by her pool! Either way you will look back at this stay as a highlight of your vacation!

We stayed for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The photos don't do any of it justice! We would have been happy sitting out looking at the view the whole time we were there. Great breakfasts, and Cidália cooked lovely dinners for us too. We also got to experience crushing the grapes after the harvest which was amazing! I couldn't recommend this place enough :)

Out of all of our AirBnB travels, Cidália is hands down the best host. Not only did she make sure that we're well accommodated, but she also helped us make daily plans for the day with recommendations. The quinta itself is amazing. It absolutely lives up to the pictures and is even more amazing in person. We stayed for 3 days, but I wish we stayed forever.

We stayed for 2 nights in this incredible house and if we knew how amazing it is, we would have stayed for 2 weeks. The view and the kindness of the owners are things you will never forget! We will be back!
