Description

Over the past decade, Quinta do Vallado decided to increase its area of owned vineyards, having chosen the Upper Douro as the most favorable location to do so.

Quinta do Orgal, located in Castelo Melhor - Vila Nova de Foz Côa, was acquired, where in 2009 the first vineyards started to be planted.

The beauty of this place, its remarkable state of conservation allied to the strength of the environment, and the absolute solitude and silence, have such a deep impact on those who go there, that it would be a waste not to share this unique experience with others.

For this reason, we decided to create an extension of Quinta do Vallado's wine hotel , in Regua - having built Casa do Rio, in this new property - with only 6 suites, strategically located between the Vineyards and the River and with an outstanding view to the Douro Valley.

The construction materials had to be environment "friendly", this is why we decided towards a building solely made of wood - and "suspended" - placed just above the water line, where an ancient orange orchard still exists.

The project was made by the same architect responsible for Quinta do Vallado's Hotel and Winery - Francisco Vieira de Campos.
