We had beautiful stay over Elza. It was perfect visit region of Douro.
It’s large comfortable refurbished house on a nice orchard of almond trees and olive trees. We went up the mountain and found the goats grazing. It was perfect vacation for hiking. Thank you Elza for your hospitality and attention.
My wife and I celebrated our 25 year wedding anniversary at the Quinta. It's location made it convenient to visit local museums, wineries and Churches. The location also allowed us to explore many nearby small towns for amazing meals and to meet lovely people. Porto is only ~1.4hrs by tollway, which is 90% of the travel.
We highly recommend taking the train, just across the Douro in Régua, out to Pocinho for a relaxing lunch and walk around the quaint town before returning. The railway view from Pinhão to Pocinho is one of the best in Europe!
The rooms were nice and well appointed. The mattress and pillows were comfortable.
We visited in late November which was cooler temperatures, as typical. We would have liked a heater in the kitchen but admit we are a bit thin-skinned.
