Vila Real, capital of the province of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro, is the largest city in the Douro Wine Region. It is home to approximately 30,000 inhabitants and provides all the services you would expect from a major town: cultural activities, shopping, cafés and restaurants, as well as the essential hospitals, clinics and chemists.

Getting to Casa Agrícola da Levada:
From Oporto Airport (Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport):
Take the A4 motorway to Vila Real (blue signs) to exit 21 marked Vila Real/IP4, after passing through the Marão Tunnel. Stay on the IP4 until exit 26, marked Vila Real/Norte, then follow the From Exit 26 off the IP4 Motorway directions below.

At the first roundabout, go straight. At the second roundabout (“B” on the map), take the 3rd exit (left), following the signs to Sabrosa/Régua/Casa de Mateus. Follow this road for 600 m as it bends fairly sharply to the left. After the next bend (to the right), start slowing down – you’ll soon be turning left into a tiny street with a “Restaurante da Ponte” sign on the corner. Drive up this narrow two-way street, and you will find the arched stone entrance to the estate right in front of you.
WARNING: if you happen approach the estate entrance from the top (with the arched stone entrance on your left), please do not attempt to drive in from that angle – it is likely that your car will get seriously scratched. You may have to drive down the narrow street to the main road and come back up.
