Do you ever love wine so much you think you could just live inside the bottle? We will do you one better – a wine barrel hotel.
Yes, you can sleep just metres from a charming vineyard in an oversized luxurious wine barrel room.
The five-star hotel is on the 56-hectare 118-year-old Quinta da Pachecha estate in Douro, Portugal.
The property has 10 wine barrel suites. Each one is 25 square metres and includes all the amenities of a modern hotel.
Expect a double bed, private wardrobe and bathroom with a walk-in shower, round beds and skylight windows. The suites’ private terraces have vineyard views as far as the eye can see.
One night’s stay at the wine barrel hotel will set you back $AU649. If you’re a glass-half-full kind of person you know the experience is worth it.
Quinta Da Pachecha has onsite winery tours where you can sample wines straight from the barrel (not the one you’ll be sleeping in). The company has been in the wine business since 1738 so you’ll be in safe hands.
It only makes sense to pair the best wines with even better food. Try your luck at a cooking class or picnic in the vineyard.
The wine barrel hotel even has its own onsite restaurant. Guest can enjoy the fruits of the vine and other locally sourced goods like jam and olive oil.
