São João da Pesqueira is one of the oldest villages in Portugal, where you'll find a lot of vineyards where some of the best Port wine is made.


The house has 4 bedrooms, two living rooms, one dinning room, two bathrooms and parking garage.
It was remodeled in 2012 and it's a great choice for your vacations.

The house is warming and comfortable. It has a big balcony with barbecue, where you can enjoy sunny days, specially in the summer. In September you an see the so called "vindimas" (grape harvest), where you can see how the real Port wine is made.

We had a lovely time in this part of the country, in a beautiful, old fashioned and well preserved house. The region is stunning and locals are extremely friendly. Clara was always available over the phone and helpful with anything we needed. Highly recommended!

This is the most interesting house I've ever stayed in! It is really beautiful and funky and truly feels like an old family home. It was very cold while we were there but they gave us space heaters that kept our bedroom warm and there were lots and lots of wool blankets. There wa…

We stayed in Sao Joao de Pesqueira for 5 days, a good base to explore the lovely upper Douro region. There is a tourist office where you can get maps of 5 walking tours. There is a nice open air swimming pool (very new) and a brand new Wine Museum. The house is huge, with antiqu…

After arrival and inspection of the house we decided not to stay in Helena's house. The overwhelming personal atmosphere made us feel we were intruding in a family life. This undoubtedly is connected to us and our emotions and not to the house.

Frank decided not to stay in our place as soon as he got there. From what I understood this happened for personal reason as he felt it was a family House. Most of our guests ask us not to change a thing about the house but we understand not all guests are the same. We can only hope Frank still enjoyed the rest of his stay in our country and we would obviously be glad to welcome them anytime. Thank you!

We had a great time in Helena's house! The house is an amazing place: full of history, style and charm, just like in times long gone by. A gem, very atmospheric! It is huge, with a maze like interior, so there was more than enough space for the four of us. And equipped with every…

We were 7 friends and there were beds for everybody. The house is very big, so we had space enough to have fun (lunch, dinner, barbacue, chat...). It is old, but clean. As we've gone in March, it was cold inside, but there is one heater (electric and gas) per room (including bedr…

We had a fabulous time in this quaint apartment/house. The property is exactly as depicted in the pictures, with many curiosities spread throughout the house. It was spacious and had a superb balcony. Its location is also ideal for those wanting to be amongst atmospheric building…
