Villa Bella Vista is a luxury villa rentals in Portugal. Situated in the famous Douro Valley Region, a region known for its rural charm and exquisite wines, like World Famous Port Wine, this villa combines stunning panoramic views with absolute privacy.
Villa Bella Vista is a beautiful and luxurious air conditioned villa with private infinity pool and garden, in an outstanding setting. The location is breathtaking – on the slopes of the valley surrounded by vineyards and overlooking a bend in the Douro River.
Exceptionally fresh and modern décor making full use of traditional materials, in particular the local stone and themed with the Porto Wine industry, overall the effect is fabulous.
The accommodation comprises a comfortable living and dining room with fireplace and satellite television, large patio doors allow plenty of light into the room and enable you to enjoy the stunning views of the river in the valley below.
Furnishings are comfortable, modern and elegant yet practical. The beautiful terrace at the front of the villa is partly covered and with the infinity pool you’ll get the full opportunity to soak this scenery in every morning, evening and night whether you are lounging on the hammocks, splashing around in the pool or having dinner on the outside dining table. The smell of fresh flowers and lavenders makes the setting even more peaceful, serene and relaxing.
Set in substantial, enclosed grounds with plenty of garden furniture and a barbecue this is a restful, beautiful place to holiday.
The house was recently awarded with the Best of Wine Tourism/2012, on the accomodation category.
The inside of the villa is well-furnished, centrally air-conditioned and has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
The master bedroom has a direct view onto the valley and is the best view to wake up to.
The living and dining rooms all have views to the valley and are very comfortably furnished with multiple sofas, hanging loungers and dining table/chairs.
The kitchen decorated in country style, is well stocked with basic items like sugar, salt, oils and has all the appliances one can hope for to make breakfast, lunch or dinner in the villa.
You can walk among the vines and even walk up the ill but you definitely need a car to explore everything that this region has to offer.
The town Peso da Régua is a quick 10 min ride by car along the river and has a couple of good wine stores and groceries.

The areas to the south of Folgosa are also fabulous and easy to get to (Lamego is one such place).
