The picturesque town of Pinhão is just a 20-minute walk from the villa. As well as being within a well-known wine-producing region, the city also has a rich port heritage and produces some of the best in the world. You can go on guided tours of wineries and sample some of the local tipples.
Pinhão is situated along the Douro River, meaning you can explore the area with a boat tour down the river. During a trip, you'll appreciate the steep vineyard terraces from a different perspective, and if you're lucky, you'll spot a range of wildlife along the way.
Another must-see attraction is Pinhão's railway station, built in 1937 and famous for its beautiful blue and white azulejo tiles that depict traditional Portuguese country life. There's also a bar and shop giving you the chance to try some wine and port.
Around 12 km from the villa is Provesende, a historic town that's full of interesting sites to explore. Walk down the winding streets, and you'll come across a 16th-century pillory and 18th-century Baroque church and fountain.
There are also many old manor houses that sit alongside more modest village cottages to show how rich the area was in past centuries.
