Overview

Located at the edge of a rural hamlet, Villa Herica is a well-equipped villa for six guests (plus three on request), offering cook service on request. It also offers modern-day conveniences such as a local mobile phone and a tablet, for guests to use as a reference guide to the region.

Right next-door is luxury Vista Gloriose for 8 (plus three guests). Both villas can be rented together for larger parties (benefiting from a special discount) or individually. Included in one week rentals (or longer) at this property are added value extras such as: a complimentary “local gastronomy” meal; a visit to one of the Port producing Quintas with wine tasting; and weather permitting, a vineyard terraces picnic plus a two hour Rabelo boat ride on the Douro. The excellent and friendly staff speak Portuguese, French and English and as well as looking after your daily needs, double up as local tour guides or babysit on request.
