Quinta do Mirante is more than a hundred years old. It was built in wood and stone using traditional methods. The 4-hectare terrain sat on the hillside, boasts a panoramic view of the Douro valley and Castelo de Paiva, its resident town. The Quinta is located 50 kilometres from Porto, as well as its airport and the beaches.
On our domain, you will find a harmonious mix of fruit trees, vegetable gardens, grass fields and a forest showing a great variety of corks trees, pine, oak and eucalyptus. The name Mirante means “point of view” and refers to a beautiful, huge granite rock offering a magnificent view of the valley below.
Built on plateaus, our hill has many levels that allow us to install ecological habitats like tinyhouses, yurts, tents and organize multiple activities. These will be added on as we go. Theplace has enough surface and qualities to fulfil our ambition which is to offer our guestscomfortable rooms, inspiring surroundings, creative workshops, cultural and music events.

nature, to wine tours and sustainable farm visits. Anything we have around us is at your
