The Home

The best way to appreciate the hypnotic meandering of Portugal’s Douro River is from up high accompanied by a glass of Douro Valley’s finest wine. And nowhere quite competes for extraordinary views of the Douro than this modern 4-bedroom family home, located just 5 minutes on foot from the world-renowned Quinta da Covela winery estate.

Housed behind the enchanting façade of an original 16th-century manor house, the winery once belonged to the late Manoel de Oliveira, a prominent Portuguese film director and screenwriter.

In contrast to the Renaissance style of the winery, this home is distinctly modern, comfortable and peppered with art and photography. The architectural design pays homage to the stunning views the home’s hilltop location yields. You’ll find a balcony with patio doors that run the length of the home and a pool where you feel — quite literally — like you are living on the leading edge of style....
