Inside the hotel
The hotel was as beautiful inside as it was outside, containing suprises in every nook and cranny. From its wine cellars to hidden sitting areas, wine is the theme of this resort in the heart of Northern Portugal's wine country.
Vintage House Hotel also has event facilities and offers €25 gourmet tastings (port wine and chocolate, anyone?). We didn't stay here, but hope to in the future. We've rarely felt so spoiled. The food was indulgent and delicious and the service was impeccable.
