Rooms & Suites: 19 Rooms & Suites

Romaneira is a traditional quinta situated in the heart of a vineyard in the Douro Valley, in Portugal. The Quinta Dona Clara is a traditional family house which has been transformed into a luxury boutique hotel.

Portuguese inspired, the Quinta groups several living spaces: a music room, a library, a pool room, a tea room and a veranda. With dark wooden floors, panelling, soft tones reminiscent of Porto, traditional bathrooms, the Quinta Dona Clara's decoration reflects the tranquillity of the area without forgetting its Anglo-Saxon influence. Facing the river, the terrace with a panoramic view is protected by the shade of the orange trees.
