About The Owner/Property Manager
My husband and I are a team, Filipe is an agronomist and I am an event manager, my husband is Portuguese and I am English, I have been living in Portugal for 34 years, we live most of the year near Lisbon, but love the Douro, on average we go to the farm once if not twice a month!
Why The Owner/Property Manager chose Vila Real
The property has been in the family for many years, we inherited it from our aunt and uncle, our aunts grandfather came to Portugal with Eiffel to build the Maria Pia Bridge in Oporto, he liked Porto so much he stayed and married, his son bought this farm and started producing Port wine, now days we do not make Port wine here but we do produce the grapes for it, along with grapes for red and white wine, which we do make on the farm alternatively.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
The area where the farm is located apart from being very beautiful is still very traditional, you might even say rural, the only sound you will hear is the church bells ringing at the weekend!

Amazing week in Douro
The pictures don’t do justice to the beautiful villa with stunning views of the valley and vineyards. Very spacious, tastefully decorated and very well equipped house.
The grounds are excellent for hiking and exploring the beauty of the valley. We loved the pool area, it was great to relax and enjoy some sun.
Maria is delightful, she comes in every day and keeps the house spotless, she is an amazing cook as well!
Sheenah and Filipe gave us a warm welcome.
Sheenah was invaluable in helping us to organize transportation for our group, assisting with retreat details and excursions.
We had wonderful time and will definitely come back.
Thank you for your hospitality!
We had a wonderful holiday in your beautiful villa.
Accommodation was excellent but we were very sad that two friends couldn’t make it.
Maria was very helpful and we communicated by note, me translating from English to Portuguese .
A few small issues.
We would have liked to have Maria cooking for us more frequently but the problem was always that we had to go into town to buy the ingredients which we didn’t always want to.
The mosquitos were troublesome and one of our friends was quite badly bitten.
I didn’t have any problems myself but I was on the top floor si could have plenty of fresh air.
Felipe was most helpful at all times, thank you.
However I didn’t o ce see the manager, he never came to the villa except for a few minutes on the Saturday before I arrived so I never met him at all. I tried phoning and texting but got no response. It would have been better if he’d gone to check that all was well especially when one toilet wasn’t working and we had all those problems with the mosquitoes.
Wonderful views and location and lots of places to visit nearby.
Amazing views and spacious house and property
We had an amazing week at Quinta do Klein, enjoying the amazing views and preparing our own meals in the modern kitchen or barbecuing outside. The pool was great for cooling down in the 35 C weather and the valley below the property provided great hiking trails. And with Pinhao just 40 minutes drive away, we were in the middle of port wine country.
The only minus was that the top floor got a bit hot in the afternoon and that the final stretch of road down to the villa was pretty narrow and a bit difficult to drive with a long station wagon. But all in all, this is a great location to spend a week in the Douro.
Great Portuguesas villa
From the minute we arrived we were amazed at the views and surrounding area. The pictures don’t do justice to the actual house and surrounding landscape. Everything is provided for lots of space bedrooms are spacious. Maria the housekeeper was excellent and great company. We are there with 13 family members 3 of which were children under 3. Highly recommended for a family vacation
never to forget!
We were with our family, 14 persons, grandparents, children and grandchildren and had a marvelous week in the Vila Real. The house, kitchen, bedrooms, swimming pool and garden: all looked fine and well equipped. I made a lot of walks, others played in the ping-pong hall, swimmed or cycled around the hills. In the evening there was a big fire in the living room, made by Maria, so it was cosy there to play games together. In the day the views over the hills and vineyards were wonderful and last but not least: we were very lucky with the weather!!! (rain and cold in Holland, every day a warm sun in Portugal).
Rural Portugal, beautiful accommodation
The house itself is lovely - huge with lots of bedrooms, towels, bedding all provided. Maria comes to clean every day and provided a lovely welcome pack but does not speak any English. The village it is in is small and there is just one cafe with a small shop. There aren't any other shops for miles - Vila Real about 25 minutes away is the closest area for amenities. However Lisa in the local cafe is absolutely lovely. She arranged a wonderful birthday meal and couldn't have been more generous. We were very lucky to have had the meal there - she cooked incredible steak and pork for us. The house is a little isolated and you have to access it down quite a steep farm track, so if you want an easy walk into town, this isn't for you. However if you are with a big group and want a great house with stunning views then it is the perfect party house
