Qt. Nova de Nª Sra do Carmo

Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo is one of the most beautiful Quintas (estates) in the Douro region and an example of the true nature of this valley. In this place the history lies in the terrain, in the aromas and in the knowledge of the men who have kept it alive generation upon generation. Over time the historical value of the Quinta has been carefully preserved – the 18th Century manor house, a Wine Hotel since 2005, the baroque style chapel dating back to 1795, the 17th Century chapel by the river, the orchards, the olive press and the 1764 winery. Hotel guests can feel the true spirit of the Douro Valley by accompanying the Quinta’s farming activities, trying out the walking routes and discovering the Quinta’s historical spots.
