Casa de Casal de Loivos is located atop a high hill with incredible views over the Douro River. This classic manor house, built in 1658, has been in the Pereira de Sampayo family since 1733, and was lovingly restored in 1991. Its truly privileged location offers one of the most scenic settings in Portugal, unanimously considered the best view over the Douro Valley. The house includes six comfortably furnished rooms, all with private bathrooms and doors opening onto the panoramic terrace; a lounge with cozy fireplace; and a swimming pool set among lawned gardens. Meals are served on the terrace, weather permitting, with sweeping views over the private vineyard and river far below.
