Quinta do Mirante is over a hundred years old. Formerly a wine farm, our house is located on the hillside of the green valley where the rivers Douro, Paiva and Tamega meet. The name ‘Mirante’ was inspired by the view seen from a uniquely large rock studded with cedar trees. Roughly 50 kilometres from Porto, the airport and the long beaches, we are happy to be comfortable nestled close to the city but far enough inland to be part of Portugal’s famous wine country.

The space
Our quinta is a place for friends and families to spend a magical stay away from home. An environment naturally designed for group getaways, with more than enough space besides for moments of quiet solitude and rejuvenation. Gaze out onto the valley while you enjoy a dip in our summit pool. Lose yourself among our fruit tree plateaus. Stroll the olive fields or walk the forest paths until you find your place to enjoy the view. Seek out hidden niches scattered across the terrain. Gather fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs from the garden to prepare your own lunch or dinner. Or simply pick a spot on the terrace under the palms and let yourself be pampered with a glass of chilled wine and a local snack.

After many years spent promoting food, drinks and culture in the Netherlands and France, Jacqueline and I moved to Portugal to dedicate our lives to what we like the most: bringing different cultures together by welcoming open-minded people from all horizons. Our sons and their partners are following us in this exciting adventure. As well as our dog and our cat. We are working hard and passionately to turn our beautiful Quinta more and more into a paradise.
