A little of our history
Quinta do Pedregal Hotel & SPA was built in a site where long time ago there was only a massive rock – hence derives its name. The first home was built in granite with traditional techniques almost a century ago, and in the 90s a new home for the Barbosa family was built.
In 2014, the Barbosa family decided to share their space with people who were beginning to discover Porto and the North of Portugal, coming from all over Europe. The old estate house – Casa da Quinta – was the first accommodation with the capacity to host a family, allowing them to enjoy the beautiful gardens, a barbecue area or to enjoy a guided tour in the city of Porto and the Douro region.
In 2016, an old existing granary house was renovated to make way for another independent house with all the comfort and privacy. And customers – who became friends – returned and brought friends with them.
In 2017, now with the oldest daughter graduated in Hospitality, the Barbosas took an important step to launch a more professional project, with more and better spaces and services for welcoming the guests. Always respecting its origins. The spirit and purpose of the Quinta do Pedregal Hotel & SPA remains the same: every guest is greeted with a smile!
