  • Description


    Built under the concept of country houses, we are nestled on the right bank of the Douro River, in Santa Cruz do Douro, Baião (75 Km Porto I 1hour). They comprise a group of four houses, ideal for friends or family, presenting a natural haven and a sublime harmony between the mountains and the river.
    The house designs combine modernity with the soul of a small village, allowing for a high level of comfort, a discreet elegance and a friendly atmosphere.
