Expert Review

With posh, modern furnishings (some awesome wicker patio pieces, too) and great views of the Douro Valley, Quinta Nova is a sweet spot to stay for a night or two while visiting area wineries. The 18th-century manor house doubles as a wine hotel. Dating back to 1764, the winery makes wines from Rose to Port. Inside the tasting room, an all-glass wall overlooks the valley. None of the 11 guest rooms are totally the same but all have soaking tubs, updated fixtures, and panoramic views of the Douro Valley. A pool surrounded by schist walls and built into the hillside also offers fantastic views. Parents traveling with small children will enjoy the Children's Room which is stocked with games and toys. Little nooks and crannies throughout the property provide spaces for studying maps, sipping a cup of tea, or reading. Breakfast (meats, cheeses, pastries, fruits, juice and coffee) is served in a cozy room, while lunch (options range from simple crepes to a traditional duck and rice dish) can be ordered a la carte and enjoyed on the terrace.
