Bairro do Casal is located in the hamlet of Murca, perched on a mountain slope near Vila Nova de Foz Coa in the Douro River Port wine region. The village, tucked between the valley and mountains, is surrounded by vineyards, almond and olive orchards, a bucolic landscape of serene natural beauty. Bairro do Casal is a peaceful retreat comprised of typical Portuguese stone houses that have been rebuilt in harmony with the rural heritage of the village. The architectural details fully preserve the original design, materials and construction techniques characteristic of the region, with stone and wood elements throughout. All villas have en suite bathrooms with toiletries and a hair dryer; some have a bath tub while others have a shower. The villas share an outdoor swimming pool. The location of Bairro do Casal is ideal for exploring the Foz Coa region with its famous archaeological park, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO for its extensive ancient rock art.
