We stayed at the Quinta de la Rosa for one night in September and it was without a doubt the most amazing location we stayed at throughout our holidays.

You're left in no doubt that this is the heart of port wine country, so if you have an interest in the production of port - and an interest in doing a few tastings - you have come to the right place.

The Quinta is set on the steep slopes of the vineyards, on the banks of the Douro and has the most amazing views. Accommodation in one of the double rooms was comfortable and entirely adequate. The rooms have all you need for the night and the breakfast buffet (not extraordinary, but tasty) is served on a terrace (or in cold weather a breakfast room) with - again - the most amazing views.

The same room/terrace are also open for guests during the day and in the evenings - a good place to enjoy a nightcap from the honesty bar.

All the staff we were in touch with were very nice and helpful and always available for a little chat. The highlight of the visit was the tour of the winery, given by the owner herself, and the subsequent tasting. (Admittedly, we were lucky because ended up in a group that was given a rather more detailed tour - and tasting. I don’t think they do such an extensive tasting all the time.)

We stayed in the middle of the harvesting season and therefore got to see the winery in full flight – bustling with activity at every moment of the day. Guests were even invited (if they felt like it) to partake in the traditional treading of the grapes for this year's port – a method still used by many producers for their top range wines.

This in itself was fun, but we were very impressed how readily available and approachable everyone was, even in this hectic season.

All together, we had a lovely stay at the Quinta - an experience most reviewers here seem to share. I cannot understand the complaints of some fellow reviewers about stairs they have to negotiate and about tired rooms. Yes, the furniture in the rooms is not brand new. Some it it is antique, some of it is local traditional furniture - in keeping with the style of the Quinta itself. If I go somewhere, this is what I want to see - not the bog-standard (but new) modern business hotel rooms you can find all over the world. Secondly (and more importantly), as the Quinta's website states very clearly, it is a working agricultural farm offering some B&B in an old house built in the traditional style. It is not a hotel. Therefore, I do not expect hotel-like accommodation with a porter service and lifts, but an original, warm and personal welcome and an opportunity to see what the place I visit it really like.

For this, Quinta de la Rosa can only get full marks from me.

One or two tips for people visiting the area: do a tour of Quinta de la Rosa and try their wines, do a tour of the vineyard at nearby Fonseca (and do a posh tasting, even if you have to pay), drive up to the Miradouro de Casal de Loivos in the evening sunshine, do a 2 hour boat trip on the Douro, and above all, enjoy the lovely countryside!

Room Tip: All rooms have great views, but some come with their own balcony. I didn't feel this was necessa...

We stayed here for one night on our drive to the Algarve from UK. Our parents reccommended it and we were not dissapointed. The young lady who checked us in was delightful. Beautiful room with lovely view over the river. Nice pool area, very quiet, lovely night sleep. We also had dinner there which you had to pre book. Set menu with wine included. I felt like i was having a real local style meal - really enjoyed it and stunning on the terrace.

The only criticism is the vast number of wasps - but as it is a vineyard i suppose this has to be expected!

My girlfriend and I stayed for 3 nights in Quinta Amarela, a short walk from the main house and winery. The rooms are clean, comfortable and well-appointed. The view from the window across the Douro River is breathtaking. The family and staff are incredibly friendly and the whole atmosphere is so relaxing. We enjoyed cooling off in the pool and reading books with walks through the vineyards - just what we needed to escape the rigours of London!

Oh and make sure you drink the wine and lots of it! Absolutely delicious...

We stayed in the Quinta Amarela for 2 nights. The accomodation is very comfortable, all rooms en suite and cool. The location is stunning and the staff are very friendly. Its quite easy to get to without a car (short taxi ride from Pinhao station) and easily walkable without luggage. If you pre-book, dinner is avaliable and is excellent vale for money - we didn't discover any great restaurants in town so would recomend this for at least one night. We loved our stay and hope to go back.
