Hi, my name is Palmira Mouta and i am renting my beautiful house at the Douro. I only speak Portuguese a little of Espanõl (but I am planing to start English lessons). Meanwhile, my friend João Paulo (John Paul in english) will help me with all translation issues if needed.

My house located on the sides of Douro River. A Spectacular place for holidays with the family. Great spaces, fully decorated. Swimming pool open all year (but usable when there's good weather, usualy from April to September). Very quiet, with stunning views over the River Douro.

The house has 580 Sq. Meters indoor and the total area is 4500 Sq. Meters. It has 4 bedrooms (3 on the ground floor and a 4th on the first floor). A large Living Room, a large Kitchen, 4 bathrooms and 1 W.C., a large area to make your own barbeque, a room with pool (billiards). Lots of space to park cars. There's a built-in system that provides local radio (or mp3 if you connect a gadget) to all compartments of it.

Kitchen with all the necessary tools to make meals, a nice place to make a barbeque. I can make meals for you if requested 24h in advance. I have prices for food+work or only for the work of cooking. I may also provide breakfast (with an extra costs)

Northern Portugal region

The Douro region is dry in the summer and icy cold in the winter; it is a land of contrasts: the beautifully kept vineyards and almond and olive trees that appear in the local cuisine are in direct contrast with the stretches of harsh and wild terrain and the fertile highlands with their varied fruits and vegetables.

In the region you can also find three protected areas of great environment relevance, the International Douro Nature Park, the Alvão Nature Park and the Azibo's Lagoon Protected Landscape, where visitors can lose themselves in the beautiful landscape that ranges from spectacular views to waterfalls, springs, fluvial beaches and rare plant life that is home to wild animals and many other hidden treasures.

In the Douro region, nature lives in harmony with the farmers who are able to work the land while preserving the scenery and maintaining its beauty intact.

"Great views, lovely pool"

Lovely large clean villa with great views, quiet location and fabulous pool. However, lacking in basic equipment such as enough loungers for the number of guests, kettle, sharp knives, decent glasses,… More

Hi Karen,

Thank you for your review. I am disappointed you were not completely satisfied with your stay at my house. I already bought more loungers. This way, every guest will have one lounger. Concerning the kitchen utensils I am surprised because my guests usually tell me they are enough.

Best Wishes
Palmira

"Awesome View of the Douro. Great House."

We have been at Palmira's Home for some days. The House is well located near the Douro River, in a quite area where you can see an awesome view over the Douro Valley. The Swimming pool is very nice and well located on a sunny area of the house. Me and my wife and my friends really enjoyed it.
