The House of Murças


The House

With an inspiring view over the Douro river and the surrounding landscape, close to Covelinhas station, you will find the Main House of Quinta dos Murças. Built in the early 19th century, it retains the characteristics of the original house with a large balcony facing the river and a garden with a swimming pool. Its typology and divisions were changed to allow for a larger room and suites.

In terms of decoration, its English-influenced aesthetic, typical of Douro houses, is combined with antique pieces, wallpapers and paintings with illustrations and images of the Douro.

Those who stay at the house can experience the farm and the region as a whole in an authentic and protected way.
