Mesão Provesende

A Home for the Traveller
Guesthouse with three Studio Apartments and two Rooms and Swimming Pool in Provesende.

These comfortably furnished studio-apartments 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 café 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.

Garden, Vineyard View and Swimming Pool

The accommodations are part of a large manor house with over one meter thick walls. The studio apartments have their own private entrance. From the different terraces in the beautiful garden you can enjoy the view on the vineyard slopes and the distant villages with characteristic whitewashed houses. Enjoying the sun on your terrace you experience the peaceful quietness that is still to be found here. After a day of exploring the Douro wine region visiting the nearby Quintas (Wine Estates) you come back home for a refreshing dip in the pool before you join us for a freshly made evening meal accompanied by a selection of local wines.

We serve breakfast. But you can have breakfast for example at cafe Central on the village square or on your private terrace. Bread you buy at the local bakery. Vegetables, eggs, milk etc. you will find in one of the two small grocery shops, where you also can have a glass of port before you start preparing the evening meal. Of course you can also go out for dinner in one of the many little restaurants in the neighbourhood.

A brisk walk will take you to an amazing place in the Pinhão river where on a warm summers day you can relax, go for a swim and enjoy your picnic. You could also have one prepared by Jet and Ronald.

Many people already know Provesende although they don’t realise it. For example the well-known port of Warre's is made at Quinta da Cavadinha in Provesende. And one of the families in the village makes, in association with Niepoort, wine and port under the name of Morgadio da Calçada. The winemaker of Quinta de la Rosa, Jorge Moreira, produces here his Poeira.
