The space

The house has 2 floors: - In the upper floor you will find the large living room with a wide dining area. There is a fully equipped kitchen for all your needs and also a wood stove if you want to enjoy your food with a countryside flavor. There are three rooms: a room with single bed, a room with a large couple bed, and a room with three bunk beds. Still on this floor you'll find two bathrooms, one of them with a large jacuzzi for your comfort. - In the lower floor there is another room with a large couple bed and a bathroom included. On this floor there is also an area once destined for the production of wine, with a mill, and a space with a "table football" table connected directly to the pool. In the outskirts of our farm you will find several restaurants with traditional food, a good pizzeria which we recommend anyone to try and also a bakery and a minimarket. You will also have the commodities of a 30km distance to Oporto which is now considered to be one of the most cultural cities in the world. You take 30min to get there if you are traveling in your own private vehicle, or if you prefer there is an hourly bus leaving from Sebolido (the station is four minutes walking distance) which takes 45 minutes from one place to the other.

One of the finest homes I have ever been lucky enough to enjoy, and it's located in the most idyllic spot imaginable. We went to Porto twice during our stay, but were always excited to be back at the pool. Maria and her husband have really made this a destination in and of itself in Portugal.

I thought this place was too good to be true when I first booked it, but the reality was even better. The house is rustic and comfortable. The grounds are gorgeous and peaceful. It was very difficult to leave. Maria and Alberto were so welcoming. We were a group of 4 adults and 5 children. Everyone loved the pool, chickens and sheep, and all of the fruit trees on the property. There's also some cafe's and restaurants within walking distance. Porto was about 40 minutes away by car. Fabulous time and we would love to be lucky enough to return!!

This house offers a beautiful view of the Duoro River, a large well-maintained salt-water swimming pool, and a very private location. The house itself is old with a rustic interior The kitchen is well equipped, and our hosts had stocked it with bottled water, bread, fruit, and other goodies to get us started. Maria and Alberto were terrific hosts. They greeted us on arrival, showed us around the house, and gave us a number of excellent suggestions for restaurants and things to see. You definitely need a car to enjoy this area. We particularly recommend Meandro, a simple local restaurant about 2 km distant with excellent food; a trip to Porto (parking at the Metro Park-and-Ride located at the Dragão stadium); and a visit to Amarante, a charming town an hour’s drive from the house).

Quinta da Moura is amazing. The house is so beautiful, the grounds are gorgeous and full of fresh produce. The view, especially from the pool, is unbeatable. Thank you Maria and Alberto for being wonderful hosts! We had the perfect vacation at your home. We can't wait to return!

Great place! This is an old house, supposedly with a 400 year history, so perhaps expect a floor board to squeak or a light fixture to blink. But it is an absolute pearl: the view over the river and the magnificent pool in the foreground, room for at least 8 people (and more if you wish to sleep outside in a hammock), and just about everything you would want for your own home. The kitchen has more plates and utensils than you can count, spices and oil, everything to do your own cooking, and the grill outside can be used with available firewood. There is a separate laundry room if you must wash clothes, you can pick oranges off the trees and make juice, you can get eggs from the chickens and make an omelet, it's truly country living. The owners really do spoil you by bringing some food and a sip of Porto wine upon arrival and they are so nice and accommodating. When the water went out one day it only took an hour for someone to arrive from the city of Porto and fix it to get us back in business. Alberto and Maria will stay out of your way if you wish or you can chat with them and learn all about the house and the area. If you are without car, you can reach Sebolido by bus from Porto in 50 minutes and the house is only a few minutes downhill from the bus stop (uphill with your suitcase on the way back…). The local super market is no more than a 10 minute walk and has most of the necessities and food, but don't expect gourmet local specialties, yet the people in the store are also very helpful and nice. There are not really any restaurants in town, only a few local bars or coffee shops, but taxi service is available to nearby towns if needed. However, come to Sebolido for a relaxing time and if the weather is on your side, enjoy the pool with infinity view over the river and the Douro valley. Do be aware that a warm sunny day can change rapidly into a cool and windy night, but that's what makes grapes produce great wine! We had a splendid reunion with 8 friends and could not have picked a better place.

I loved the house! Beautiful, well maintained and clean. Alberto is an amazing host! I was not lucky with the weather. It was too cold, and the house lacks a modern heating system, and a small problem with the water heater made us leave the house 2 nights earlier. Other than that, I loved this house and I strongly recommend it.
