As one of the leading bespoke tour providers of the “total Port experience” we take our responsibility for showing people a good time in the Douro very seriously. Ensuring our guests have an exceptionally comfortable place to sleep, in a quiet vineyard setting and offering breakfast substantial enough to fortify our guests for the few dozen Ports and Douro wines that they’ll encounter on a daily basis, requires a significant amount of trust.
In Quinta do Portal’s, Casa das Pipas … we put our trust, year in and year out. Not only is this one of the very finest places you can stay in the entire Douro Valley region, but their eco-friendly winemaking facilities are amongst the most modern in today’s Douro. Their Port and Douro wines speak for themselves; and if you’ve not yet tasted any, you are truly missing the Barco Rabelo.
