A winery and farmhouse located in the Douro region of Portugal. Quinta de S.Bernardo is a boutique hotel on the banks of the Douro River, located an hour east of Porto. This estate is charming, cool, modern yet rural, and includes a seven-room farmhouse and winery that is ideal for short or long-term getaways.
Built in 1912, the farmhouse and surrounding vineyards have remained in the same family for many decades. In 2017, the property was renovated by grandson Diogo and wife Marcela. They paid close attention to creating a comfortable and contemporary accommodation, that is in keeping with the spirit of the functioning winery and farm. The estate includes an organic garden that grows an array of vegetables and herbs that are cultivated year round, allowing for consistent farm to table cuisine no matter what the season. The property also features numerous fruit and nut trees, adding to the overall ambience and natural beauty of the surrounds.
This small and quaint property, situated in the heart of the Douro region of Portugal, boasts a farm-to-table restaurant, where a set menu is prepared nightly. Guests are also treated to a daily breakfast of fresh breads, fruits, sliced meats and locally-produced honey; all of which is impeccably presented. An outside terrace overlooking the river is perfect for afternoon lemonade or pre-dinner drinks. Deck chairs around the infinity pool enable sunbathers to enjoy the mountain vistas and the boats cruising down the Douro River. In the evening a family room offers warmth from the fireplace and games for entertainment.
