The Quinta and us
Quinta do Mirante is over a hundred years old.
Formerly a wine farm, our house is located on the hillside of the green valley where the rivers Douro, Paiva and Tamega meet.
The name “Mirante” was inspired by the view seen from a uniquely large rock studded with cedar trees. Roughly 50 kilometres from Porto, the airport and the long beaches, we are happy to comfortable nestled close to the city but far enough inland to be part of Portugal’s famous wine country.
Be our guest!
Now it’s time for us to share!
From April on, our doors will be open to anyone who wishes to stay, relax,
let loose, get married or get inspired.
Groups can engage in any number of activities here.
Friends, families or lovers can come to get away, explore, or simply
lay back with some Vinho Verde and rest in the sun.
Share the life
at The Quinta
We offer you our Guest House for an unforgettable stay.
With room for up to 12 people, you can spend time with family,
friends, or organise retreats here.
Every morning, we serve a home-made breakfast with fresh jams from the Quinta. You can order drinks all day long. And if you want to stay put,
3 days in the week we serve meals!
We live in the private area of the Quinta, so we are always at your disposal in English, French or Dutch. Sorry, still working hard to add Portuguese to our list as well!
So many things to see and do!
We are here to help you enjoy your stay to the fullest! Tell us what you like and we’ll arrange it or help you get there.
