A perfect place to visit all Douro Valley! Near Lamego and Régua, inserted in a vineyard, it is perfect to relax and enjoy the sights.

The Space

Quinta de Recião is situated in a land where the Work of God gathers with the work of generations and generations to create one of the most beautiful and charming landscape of the World: DOURO!

Close to Lamego e a few meters away from the quiet fluvial beach of the Varosa river and its roman bridge, in Quinta de Recião, the mill and outbuildings, the caretakers house and the kitchen with fireplace and oven were recently restored.
These installations are destined to welcome people who enjoy nature, in its most genuine expression: the melody of the silence broken by the songs of the birds, the soft swash of the waterfalls and... the bucolic sound of a mill, which invites us to fall a sleep and dream with the paradise called RECIÃO.

An ideal spot to start an adventure through this land of wonders, enchantments and surprises, where nature opens the door to places of unforgettable beauty that reflect centuries of history, now a monumental patrimony.

Caretakers House is entirely at the disposal of the guests, so the rental doesn't include meals.

Guest Access

Our guests have access to all property and surroundings. They can (and should!) go for long walks around the river and vineyards; we give them keys for the main gate. This way, they can feel as they have never left home.

  • Fantastic setting! Very peaceful. Great view of the vineyards, river and hillside from the patio. We really appreciated being able to take walks through the estate.

  • We had a wonderful time in this house : it was not very easy to find, but once we were there we enjoyed the quiet of the valley. The house is very charming, there is all the equipment needed if you plan to stay there more a week or so. You can swim in the small river that is just under the house, and there is everything you need to eat outside and enjoy the beautiful view and the extreme quiet.
    A very good option if you want to visit the Douro valley!

  • My sister and I stayed at the cottage May 18-May 20. We loved everything about the experience and the home was exactly as represented on the website. The location is just beautiful. We were charmed by Francisca and her mom and they were both very concerned with ensuring our stay was comfortable. They were very gracious with regard to our early arrival and rushed to make sure we had what we needed including the loan of an umbrella. We would love to have been there when the weather was a little warmer - we got to walk the property some but did not get to enjoy breakfast on the outside patio. We appreciated having the heaters in additon to the little stove and had a good time making a fire etc. The fruit and cookies were a nice touch and made us feel at home right away. The directions I got from Francisca by email were really nice to have and I recommend asking for them if you do not have GPS.

  • Very cute rustic farm house near Régua and Lamego. We loved staying in the heart of the Douro away from everything. Francisca and her mother were very helpful and got us settled in and gave us a tour of the property. They even left us fruit and cookies. There were plenty of towels and bedding. There was everything we needed for our stay. We built ourselves a fire, made our own meals and walked around the property. It's a perfect place to stay as a couple, 2 couples, or as a couple with kids. We definitely want to go back someday in the summer!

  • A great quiet place with a nice porch. The apartment is nice, cozy and fully equipped, but the double bed was a bit too small for two long Dutch people :)

  • After the crowds and energy of the cities, this was an ideal respite. Exceedingly clean home, wonderfully helpful and easy to deal with hosts we greeted us wtih fresh OJ, baked goods, jam, fruit, water and much advice. They also showed us around their own vineyard.
    The property sits on a road on a hillside, overlooking vineyards and a steep valley. Sitting on the stone terrace for breakfast or in the evening, staring off into the valley as the waters of the river flow by is a marvelous experience.
    It's difficult to find falut, perhaps a larger bath mat, larger mirror----very small details.
    It's a decent alternative to over-priced quintas, with far more room and privacy.
    Go now before they realize their home is under-priced and the word gets around.
    muite obrigados to Francisca and her wonderful mother

  • Francisca's mum looked after us very well. She organised everything (you can think of) to make our stay comfortable, easy & relax. The house is very spacious & set in their old family homestead, among their own vinyard & orchards, close to the swimming spot in the river (that bridge in the photo). Just lovely experience for Duoro explorer. Thankyou!!!

Sou de Lamego mas presentemente vivo no Porto. A dedicação ao turismo vem sendo um hábito peculiar na minha familia e para não fugir à regra eu dou-lhe continuidade. Gostamos de nos relacionar com pessoas de várias partes do país e do Mundo. Para ambas as partes, são enriquecedores e muito gratificantes os laços que se criam. Apareçam, vão gostar...
