"Montes e Vales no Centro" (mountains & valleys in the centre) is a 90 m2 1-bedroom apartment right in the centre of Vila Real (Douro wine region, Portugal).
But the view you'll get from the windows and balconies: mountain and river. Hence the name.

The space

Fully decorated 90 m2 apartment located on the 6th floor of a residential building. Includes 1 bedroom with 160 x 200 cm double bed, large and sunny living/dining room with enough space for an extra bed (sleeps 1 guest) and two balconies (overlooking the nearby mountains of Marão and Alvão and the deep valley of River Cabril), fully equipped kitchen and bathroom with tub.
A crib may be provided upon request (subject to availability, incurring in additional cost: 5€/night, if the baby was not included in the total number of guests).

250 m away from the centre of Vila Real (main town in the Alto Douro Wine Region, a UNESCO World Heritage Site) but with a view that will convince you you're far away in Nature.

Guest access

Guests have no access to two additional rooms (used for storage), which are closed.

Free outdoors parking on a private lot 150 m from the building.

We stayed at Fernando's apartment during our road trip in Portugal and we were really surprised by the quality of the service! Fernando is very helpful and took time to hold us a parking place, to explain us what to do around Vila Real. The apartment was absolutely clean and functional, with wonderful view at every window. We took our breakfast in the balcony it was great! The bed is comfortable and the neighborhood is quiet. I highly recommend Fernando's place, which is better than the announce!

The apartment is spacious and well equipped. The best part is the amazing views! The balcony is the perfect place for breakfast/dinner with a great view of the whole city and mountains. Fernando was super nice and really helpful. When one of the shutters was stuck he rushed over and fixed it. Highly recommended.

Great place with a breathtaking view. I would highly recommend it. Make sure to rent a car if you want to explore the Douro valley in all its beauty :) the host (Fernando) is also very friendly and has good suggestions for visiting the region.

Recomiendo este apartamento sin ninguna duda. Vila Real es pequeña y se visita a pie perfectamente, además el apartamento está al ladito del Ayuntamiento.

Hi, my name is Fernando and I'm from Vila Real, a town in the region of Trás-os-Montes (i.e., Beyond-the-Mountains).
Besides my own property, I also help running another property registered on Airbnb, but you won't find that referenced on my profile, because the property is registered with (and belongs to) another member. The link to the property is
