About this listing
Discover this incredible corner with almost wild nature and several waterfalls at only 20 minutes from Oporto. And you won’t even need a car to come here. From the airport, a direct metro connection will let you on Campanhã rail station and from there, several trains by day, will let you on Parada station, at walking distance from the property. On this rural area, the bread and groceries are still delivered at the door by local suppliers and the vegetables, you can harvest yourself from the garden.
Mr. Osório, the proud owner and concerned host, will show you all the spots of this property of 22.000 m2.
Part of the ancient house, hundreds of years old, was restored into a suite where privacy was the main concept. You will have here a bedroom with double bed and a private bathroom.
Two studio apartments were built nearby, taking advantage of the amazing view over the river and waterfalls. Each of the two apartments has a double bed and a small double sofa-bed (suitable for children). Private bathroom and a kitchenette add comfort and utility to each apartment. Although all the spaces have central heating, you will find a cozy fireplace in each apartment.
As common areas, to be shared by the guests from the suite and from the 2 studio apartments are a big kitchen, living room and terrace, garden with pool.
The kitchen is fully equipped, if you wish to cook and enjoy a meal with your friends. If you just want to make a barbecue you have a shadowed, fresh terrace and, nearby, a living room for parties or relaxing moments.
Outdoors you will have plenty of ways to entertain yourself, from taking bath on the river or on the pool, catching sun, having golf fun in the home made putting green, to discover the little island of the two turtles in the middle of the river, canoying or enjoy the biological agriculture.
If you still haven’t decided yet, just let me tell you how welcoming host you will have on Mr. and Mrs. Osório that fall in love with this place several years ago and since then, completely changed their life in order to live nearby and to show to other people this dream corner of nature.

We had the most amazing time in Porto! Beautiful town, with beautiful, friendly, and the sweetest people I've met. Loved every minute. We also went to Guimaraes, I was really impressed, what a beautiful place. We have stayed at Sr. Osorio's place in Parada de Todeia. The beautiful scenery already blown my mind, the studio is by the waterfalls, very private place with a pool, golf area, canoe to use, all in the middle of nature, very calm and spiritual. The room itself was super big, comfortable, and very well (website hidden). Osorio's hospitality is top notch, lovely person, very sweet, and caring of our needs. Definitely recommend to everybody. I will certainly come back.
Liana answered all inquiries promptly and even helped with train schedules and maps for our visit. The property was even more beautiful than described or shown in the photos provided, and was perfect down to the smallest details. As we arrived by train without a car, Mr. Osario kindly met us at the train station and took us and our luggage directly to the property, and he drove us to a town about 15 minutes away to a large supermarket for groceries, showing us several villages and gorgeous mountain scenery along the way. He also provided fruit and vegetable from his garden. Even though Mr. Osario did not speak English, and we spoke only English, we were able to communicate most questions and needs. His English speaking daughter and son were also available on two occasions to answer questions and provide additional information.
The property is a peaceful relaxing place and also makes a good starting point from which to explore Porto and the Douro River. Trains are frequent and the station is a 15 minute walk (easy to do without luggage). Even though there were only 3 of us, we were the only guests during our 6 days on the property, so had the entire area to ourselves. The kitchen is amazing, well equipped, a beautiful view, and indoor as well as outdoor dining areas. The pool area is also beautiful with a view of the waterfalls and river and the bountiful grape arbors.
I hope to be able to visit again.
A wild watery wonderland. Drift off to sleep with the sound of the water flowing over the rocks. Warm welcoming host. Very clean apartment with the most comfortable bed that you could ever sleep in. A great base to tour the wine region. You will not be disappointed.
