Do you love wine so much so you’ve dreamed of sleeping in a giant wine barrel? If the answer is yes, we have good news for you. At the Quinta da Pacheca estate in Douro, Portugal, guests can spend their vacation at the vineyard in a luxurious wine barrel.

The 10 wine barrel rooms are all designed properly to provide visitors with a unique experience of the nature and significance of the Douro wine region, but with all the comfort of the most modern hotel units at the same time. They are made of simple pinewood, but on the inside, each contains an elegant bedroom fit for a spa. Each barrel features high-end amenities like a private bathroom with modern fixtures, a walk-in shower, a large round bed and skylight so you can gaze at the stars, a private terrace, Wi-Fi, and air conditioning.

During your stay at the vineyard, you can also enjoy wine tastings as well as samples of locally made jam and olive oil. Booking your own barrel costs about 255 Euros per night. If you’re not into staying in a barrel, there are also normal rooms at the hotel house.
