"A hidden gem!"

The pictures do not do this delightful place justice...It is a beautifully restored house with its own vineyard, small wood, and fabulous large heated pool.

It is set high in the mountains above the village of armamar in a small hamlet called Aldeia da Cima.

The local scenery is stunning and the property itself is of a very high standard.

Located in Aldeia de Cima in Armamar, in the Douro Valley, the Casa da Capela de Cima, dating back to the XVII century is a manor with Chapel – a tribute to Saint Mary of Guadalupe, held as the most ancient in the Aldeia de Cima, in Armamar.

The title of Chapel was bestowed to it (one of the richest in the whole of Lamego) by Manuel Cardoso Madeira, on the 21st of November November 1697. Its precious register (together with other documents) was lost in the big fire which in December 1999 consumed all the interior and furniture of the Manor. This building was completely restored respecting its original architecture.
