"Drive friendly - roads are quite narrow!" Ervedosa do Douro Warnings Or Dangers Tip by nomad7890

  Narrow twisty roads inside the quinta
by nomad7890

I traveled to Ervedosa do Douro with the owner of the Quinta who did all the driving. These are the little roads you see skirting the vineyards from a distance which in actuality are not meant for other traffic than those people living or working in the area.

While we drove I noticed that the owner could sense a car coming while I would not even be aware anything was close. The quinta has been in the owner's family for over 300 years, so please check with the owner regarding driving in the quinta - even if it is allowed.

If you are not at ease driving in hills it may be best to leave the car in a place recommended by the hosts you will stay with and ride up with the owner. Or return your car in a nearby town and pick it up at the end of your stay.
