My family have stayed in luxury villas across Europe for years; in France, Spain, the Italian Lakes, Croatia... We have never stayed anywhere as beautiful as Quinta da Herdade. Set in a vineyard estate, overlooking a very private and peaceful stretch of the river, the photos on the website by no means do it justice. Private pool, floodlit tennis court, fully equipped gym with sauna, plus two architect designed houses with terraces and secluded, wisteria draped balconies; this was a small paradise, that we had entirely to ourselves. The owners are welcoming and generous hosts, who were at pains to ensure we had the best of everything, but left us to enjoy the peaceful surroundings and amazing facilities. We will be returning.
