    Greatest Place on Earth

    Quinta da Agraceira is one of the best places we have stayed around the world. Elsa and Filipe are the best hosts. They helped us get around the area and stock our grocery supplies. We stayed two nights and did not leave the property one of the days. We picnicked and swam at the pool. We took the Kayaks to the Bar across the river and had dinner on our balcony overlooking the Douro. The property is peaceful and magical, full of fountains and fruit trees. We wish we could have stayed longer but we had reservations in Porto. Elsa drove us to our next destination giving us a great tour of Vila Nove de Gaia and Porto. We are already planning our return to Portugal and we will certainly be staying again! Thanks again so much!

    Amazing location, fantastic hosts

    We could not have been happier with our stay. Everything exceeded our expectations from the time we arrived until our reluctant departure. Elsa had a spread of fresh fruit, meat, wine, cheese and bread waiting for us when checked in - robust enough that we didn’t leave for dinner. She also delivered fresh bread and pastries in the morning which made a lovely breakfast. We spent one day exploring nearby Porto, but spent the remainder of our 4-day stay enjoying the lovely pool, kayaking in the river, and admiring the view. Strongly recommended - you won’t regret staying here.

    A comfortable & enjoyable holiday

    A beautiful property with views over the river that were inspirational. The owners Elsa & Philipe were very hospitable and helpful. We would love to go back.

    Romantic, beautifully maintained house with a wonderful view on the Douro river

    We spent a wonderful time in this charming house, off the beaten track at the Douro river. It has been renovated very recently and the standard is very high. The decoration and equipment is in the chabby-chic stile, very stylish! The terrace with the view on the Douro is unique! The pool area wonderful, even with a kitchen, coffee machine and fridge. Every morning, we received fresh bread and pastries - on the arrival day even some Tapas and Portwine! We were astonished by the generosity of Elsa and Filipo. Thank you so much, we recommend your house to anyone who prefers to stay at a quiet place in nature, but very close to buzzling Porto.

    Wonderful property, wonderful location and amazing hosts!

    Our flight was delayed so we arrived after 1 am but Filipe was there to greet us with home baked cake, bread rolls and a bottle of wine. The location and the beautiful property allowed us to relax immediately and at breakfast we immediately decided to extend our stay. Unfortunately, a change in the COVID rules meant that we were actually forced to shorten our stay in order to avoid a 14 day quarantine period upon returning to Germany. Elsa not only spent considerable time in locating a PCR testing station but actually took us there to make absolutely sure that nothing went wrong. We don’t think you will find kinder or more lovely hosts anywhere. Combined with the character of the 300 year old estate set next to the river with private swimming pool and kayaks, guests are assured of experiencing a wonderful peaceful holiday. Thank you again, Elsa and Filipe for being so kind and helpful!!

    insolite et tres agréable

    Gite de charme très agréable et très bien tenu. voyageurs aimant la vie trépidente s'abstenir. Calme comfort et vue sur le Douro. Hôtes d'une gentillesse et dévouement rares. Remerciments particuliers à Filip pour son assistance et son accompagnement à l'aeroport. Encore de grosses bises à tout les deux.
