Villa Herica


Reference: PV1083

"Right at the heart of the Douro Valley in north Portugal, this villa with pool and games room affords spectacular views over the steep vineyard terraces producing one of the best wines in the region - unwind and enjoy a relaxing holiday in this corner of paradise, with breakfast served daily on your terrace with panoramic views!"

Located at the edge of a rural hamlet, Vista Hermosa is a well-equipped holiday villa for 6 guests (+ 3 on request),  offering cook service on request. It also offers modern-day conveniences such as a local mobile and a tablet, for guests to use as a reference guide to the region. Right next-door is luxury Vista Gloriosa for 8 (+ 3 guests): both villas can be rented together for larger parties (benefitting from a special discount) or individually. Included in one week rentals (or longer) at this property are added value extras such as: a complimentary “local gastronomy” meal; a visit to one of the Port producing Quintas with wine tasting; and weather permitting, a vineyard terraces picnic plus a two hour Rabelo boat ride on the Douro. The excellent and friendly staff speak Portuguese, French and English and as well as looking after your daily needs, double up as local tour guides or babysit on request.
