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.
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!
7km from Lamego and 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.
Mill House is entirely at the disposal of the guests, so the rental doesn't include meals.
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.
Interaction with Guests
We have a custom check-in, we wait for our guests in Quinta de Recião and give them all the details about the stay. After this, the house is entirely for the guests.
Our neighborhood is only the nature!
The car is essential to get Quinta de Recião.
We were met by the owners cousin who was wonderfully friendly, spoke English and gave us lots of information.
Os cinco dias que passei na Casa do Moinho excederam todas as expetativas criadas. A casa é muito agradável, equipada com tudo o necessário e facilmente acessível a partir da Régua ou Lamego. Fui muito bem recebida e foram-me dadas todas as indicações de que precisava para aproveitar a estadia o melhor possível. O ambiente é verdadeiramente encantador: a paisagem, o rio, a tranquilidade, as estrelas - um cenário ideal para descansar e desfrutar da natureza. Espero poder vir a repetir a experiência.
Thanks to the coordinates given, we had no trouble finding the house. We got a warm welcome from Francesca and her mother.
We had a fabulous time at the Mill House. It's a lot of fun swimming in the river (there is a great swimming place a little downstream), relaxing, and enjoying the surroundings.
The house is located at a quiet road, but at the same time you're in Lamego in ten minutes by car, where there are supermarkets and bars and restaurants.
There is a little kitchenette with all kitchenware provided to cook your own meal.
Absolutely recommended, we hope we can stay here again one day!
An amazing three nights spent in the Mill House on the banks of the river. Sleeping to the sound of the peaceful water rushing by, sitting in the sun, walking on their grounds. Absolutely amazing. The MOST comfortable beds! Note that the location is about 20 minutes on tiny back roads from the town of Lamego, which has shops, restaurants and things to see, but it is definitely not a five minute drive. Also very steep downhill to property - not for anyone with limitations.
We rented a portable wifi hotspot for use on our trip, and it was not able to make a connection from the property - I think it was too far down in the valley. But when we drove up to higher ground, we were able to connect. Some may love being off the grid, but for those of us who need to check in daily with email, this is good to know.
We toured several wineries in the Douro region and it was a very convenient location.
House and grounds are much prettier than the photos suggest. And the pictures are very nice- so just imagine how lovely the property is.
Kitchen is a full size refrig, with a 2 burner stove. A few pots and utensils and full set of dishes. Easy to make a simple meal.
If you are going to be nearby, definitely stay there. It is a very unique property and you will love it!
We had a wonderful stay at this cozy place. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were in awe of this charming little house and its surrounding natural beauty. No WiFi meant we were able to fully disconnect - a much-welcomed break. We walked around the entirety of the grounds - a lovely terraced vineyard couched in a quaint valley. Nearby Lamego meant easy access to groceries and other necessities - though we spent the better part of a week at the Quinta. Many breakfasts, lunches, and dinner outside on the (email hidden)agine a full and gushing river just underneath and a breathtaking view of diverse patches of hillside covered in vine and tree. If you're looking for a place to breath and be refreshed, this is a hard-to-beat place.
The host family was very kind, thoughtful, gracious, and accommodating. They made our stay that much more enjoyable and memorable - thanks Paulina and Catarina!
POR/ENG: Passamos 3 noites perfeitas na Casa do Moinho. O lugar é lindo (corre um rio ao lado da propriedade e há montanhas ao redor) e a casa muito bem equipada para a estadia. A localização é excelente, no coração do vale do Douro, e em Lamego, cidade que está a uma curta distância de carro, tem tudo que você precisa para a estadia. Não conhecemos Francisca, mas sim sua mãe, Maria Paulina, uma senhora muito simpática e alegre que tivemos o prazer de conhecer. Ela nos fez sentir em casa desde o primeiro momento, e se colocou disponível para nos atender sempre que necessário. Uma figura incrível. Obrigado Paulina e Francisca.
We spent 3 perfect nights at the Mill House. The property is extremely beautiful (a river runs alongside it and there are mountains all around) and the house is very well equipped. The location is excellent, in the heart of the Douro Valley. Lamego, the nearest town, is in a short drive away, and has everything you need during your stay. We did not had the chance to meet Francisca, but his mother, Maria Paulina, is a very friendly and cheerful lady who we had the pleasure of knowing. She made us feel at home from the first moment, and was always available to help if necessary. An amazing figure. Thanks Paulina and Francisca.
We are couple with 2years baby. Stayed there in October 2013 for 2 nights. Love this place, which is away from noise on the riverside, near the vineyard, where We had a chance to have a walk..Fruits like grapes, walnuts, oranges, etc. at your fingertips. Recommended.

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...
