This comfortably furnished studio-apartment with the 4 meters high ceiling are situated in Provezende, a traditional wine village in the Douro Valley (UNESCO world heritage), Northern Portugal, at 8 km from Pinhão, where men play domino on the terrace of the local cafe and women do the laundry at the nearby fountain. In the friendly village you can find besides the simple rural cottages, old manor houses which remind of the noble port families of these surroundings. At the end of the nineteenth century Phylloxera destroyed most of the vineyards in Europe. In the Douro the fight against the grape louse started in Provezende and that is why it takes an important place in the history of vine growing in the Port region. The accommodations are part of a large manor house with over one meter thick walls, have their own entrance and a private terrace in the beautiful garden with view on the vineyard slopes and a distant village with characteristic whitewashed houses. Enjoying the sun on your terrace you experience the peaceful quietness that is still to be found here. The 45m2 Studio 1 has a comfortable king size box spring bed, a living area, sufficient cupboard space, a dining part and an entirely arranged kitchenette. It is suitable for two adults with one or two small children. The nature stone outside wall of the house has remained visible and above the bed is hanging a large chandelier. The modern bathroom has a wash-hand basin, toilet and a wide, luxurious rain shower.
