Passing the Village of Ventozelo, on the way to the river, we find the largest House of the Estate – Casa Grande. In it, there are six superior double rooms, with a private bathroom, arranged around a central cloister, through which the light invades the entire space. With a library, living and dining rooms, and a private pool overflowing over the Douro River, this is the perfect option for a memorable group stay.
No matter the age, within this property you may find lots of activities. You can choose between wine tastings, learn about the history of the place at an interpretive center, do one of the seven hiking trails (with audioguide), and do Nature tourism activities in general.
