Mid May, we are staying in the Douro Valley for 2 nights and then heading back to Porto. Looking for a great place to stay in the Douro Valley with spectacular views. So far looking at Hotel Rural Quinta Do Pego and Quinta de Santo Antonio. Do you have any other recommendations and/or do you know anything about these two places? Also, would you expect it to be very warm (some of the hotels have swimming pools). Thanks so much!
I'm a tour guide and I guide tour around there (I'm not selling my tour to you just trying to help)
Depends quite a lot of what are you looking for.
Both options you presented are quite nice and I believe you will enjoy them.
Another option, closer to the river is http://www.quintadelarosa.com/. They have an excelent Port Wine (the one I drink in my place with my frinds).
Mid May I will be leading walking tour around the Douro Valley, -snip-

Thanks David! I thought that was helpful. I looked at the Quinta De La Rosa but I wanted something higher up with a view.
