At the gates of the Douro Valley, between the mountains of Maro and Montemuro and the edge of a small arm of the river water, the Houses of Pousadouro are a small gathering of rural houses whose set exudes the soul of a small village. Here, the Douro is so much more than just one of the finest wine-growing regions in the world. The landscape is dominated by water mirrors shrouded on the relaxed green of the slopes and the disperse housing that gives to this view a human element. Fusing harmoniously the traditional architecture with the contemporary interiors, the cottages offer large windows that enhance the connection to nature, a sophisticated mix of rustic, classic with modern. A secret hideout, where the body and the mind come together to find a serene balance and pure inspiration.
