Encostas da Baronesa

Douro Valley, Portugal

If you’ve ever heard of the Douro Valley, you’ve likely heard about how it provides some of the most breathtaking views in all of Europe. Experience a retreat from life that is sure to recharge your mind and invigorate your soul. This villa is located in the wine region of the world, offering some of the best wine in a private and secluded environment. Whether you’re lying in bed or sitting on one of the many patios, there is never a shortage of scenery to take in. As you shield your eyes from the powerful rays of the sun, you’ll want to open your senses to the sights, sounds, and smells of Portugal's Douro region.
The wide glass façade invites light to come in, providing natural lighting which reveals a myriad of colors, reflections, and shadows. It is ubiquitous transparency, which absorbs and transports the tranquility of the Douro landscape to the interior spaces. On the first floor, the sharing of moments: conviviality, games, and meals. On the second floor the introspection, in a contemplative lounge, overlooking the river, where a library invites the mind to travel beyond the Douro hills and valleys.
