Casa dos Varais
Set in the heart of the Port wine region, Casa dos Varais overlooks
the enchanting Douro valley. Although the present building dates
from the early 18th Century, the original construction is believed
to be from the 15th Century. Varais has witnessed a somewhat turbulent
history, having been invaded by Napoleonic troops in 1808 and almost
completely destroyed by fire in 1940. Today however, visitors will
encounter a splendid mansion in a tranquil setting.
