My studio flat is situated in the centre of the village of Provesende, Upper Corgo, in the Douro Valley. Which is one of the oldest demarcated and regulated wine regions in the world, Protected Designation of Origin: Port or Porto. (Portuguese fortified wine produced with distilled grape spirits, exclusively in the Douro Valley). It's also a World Heritage Site, for being the landscape most transformed by hand, by man: the socalcos (narrow and irregular terraces, where the vineyards grow).

The space
I’ve decorated the studio flat with neutral colours, that have the attribute of making You feel warm and welcome, at Your extended home.
I think you will find everything you need, whether you’re staying in (Free Access to the Internet), going out for walks (3 trails, of +/- less of 6km each), or for a stroll through this small and peaceful village that has a bit to offer:
-situated at the top of a hill, it offers a unique breath-taking view, “resplendently showcasing the Portugal of yesteryear.”
-a baroque Parish Church and a granite Fountain, both from the XVIII century
-the granite manors and the various noble houses that attest to the power and wealth of the region.
- a wood-fired oven bakery, where you can buy freshly baked bread every morning (before 10 am), like the old days, running since 1940.

I have a lady that comes around to clean and tidy, so if you need anything just let me know, and if possible, I’ll have her deliver it.
