The attractive Pousada was formerly a notable private dwelling for the nephew of the founder of the Port wine firm, Offley, Forrester & Companhia. James Forrester built the house as residence when visiting the vineyards of the company. It has been well converted into a comfortable and ideal location for visitors to the Vila Real area of the Douro wine region.
