Pousada Solar da Rede, with breathtaking views over the Douro river, offers a superb hotel accommodation in an 18th century estate in the Port Wine region. This magnificent and traditionally furnished house echoes the aristocratic lifestyle of earlier generations. The furniture is outstanding and the individually designed bedrooms have been described as a “museum of beds”.
As you enter the doors of this magnificent building, the feeling is one of stepping back into the past. The old kitchens, with their tiled floors and walls, have been converted into the hotel dining room.
In the cellars you will find the wine tasting room which walls are lined with barrels containing the wines of the “quinta”. The outside swimming pool has views over the vineyards and there is also a tennis court. The 25 acre vineyard provides interesting walks through a magnificent scenery. Facilities include heliport, restaurant, bar, terrace, snooker and family games, swimming pool, tennis court and parking.
Activities in the area include golf, river cruises, hunting, fishing, bicycle tours and country walks. For golfers there is an excellent course at Amarante Golf Course.
