Inlaid on the right bank of the Douro River, roughly midway between Pinhão and Régua, in one of the most difficult roads in the area you will find Quinta Nova.
Quinta Nova Hotel
Quinta Nova is a wine and olive oil producer from the Cima Corgo sub-region, belonging to the Municipality of Sabrosa. But, for the moment I will not talk about their wines and olive oils.
Quinta Nova is also home to a hotel unit with few but beautiful rooms and a fantastic restaurant that rivals the very famous DOC.
The accommodation is excellent and the staff is very friendly and welcoming.
It’s a quiet place at night and during the day only the presence of winery or restaurant visitors may disturb your serenity. But, even so, it will never be anything to much.
They offer an outdoor pool for exclusive use of hotel customers. You will really need that on the hot summer days.
Access to Quinta Nova Hotel
The access to the hotel isn’t so easy. We are talking about 15km of road between Pinhão and Quinta Nova. A narrow road, full of curves, with steep cliffs that sometimes frighten our visitors.
The alternative is chartering a boat to transport you from Pinhão or Foz do Távora to Ferrão, the dock near the hotel. They will pick you there, for sure.
The trip is nice and you will avoid the mountain road.
It is certainly a place to consider for your stay at Douro valley.
