The Porto region is renowned for its beautiful farms that can be converted into perfect locations for weddings. Today we are going to show you 20 of the region’s favourites, some located near the centre for those who like the hustle and bustle of rural tourism, and some located away from the buzz for a quieter and cosier environment. These have been hand picked by Zankyou’s very own brides and grooms, so stay tuned!
Quinta Casa Grande is located in the town of Melres, a beautiful area on the right bank of the river Douro. To start the day you can hold your service in the Melres mother church just a few meters from the spectacular farm. In the old ship you can hold you banquet, having the opportunity to pre plan it to your likes and dislikes. The décor and menu are yours to have fun with. Most importantly, this space is one of elegance and class.
Quinta de Jordão is located in Vila Nova de Gaia, next to the Arrabida Bridge and only one minute from Porto. This reminds us of an enchanted forest with its heady green landscape and avenue of linden trees. The farm has a beautiful lake, a chapel and a wonderful garden: the Tenda space, the avenues of the Tilias and the Botanical garden. All in all it’s a spectacular space to spend your special day.
Although newly renovated in the 20th century, this building has still maintained some of its age old aspects.

This venue lies between Porto and the Douro Valley and belongs to the Chateaux & Relais Hotels. It inspires romance with its idyllic setting and gorgeous landscape.

It is welcoming and classically beautiful.
This venue is surrounded by incredible beauty and we couldn’t recommend it more. The tranquility and scenery make for a perfect wedding.

This Quinta also works with AmbientaEventos that will create the wedding that suits you the best.
