This hotel overlooks the Douro River in the World Heritage city of Porto. Enjoy the extensive grounds and sweeping views of the historic city center from your room’s private terrace… perhaps while enjoying a glass of wine or famous Port. Indeed, the restaurant is famed for food and wine pairing and has a Michelin star. Their 25,000 bottle wine cellar won the 2011 “Best Wine List” award.
In the day you can explore Porto. Even take a hot air balloon ride over the city – I imagine you will want to grab a hamper of delicious foodstuffs to enjoy while you sail through the air. The famous Casa de Musica holds daily concerts and you must leave time to walk the double-decked Dom Luis Bridge. Back at the hotel and even the spa is wine-inspired. Treatments using the antioxidant properties of grapes abound. And, after your unique treatment, it’s time to swim in one of the panoramic infinity pools. Wine buffs will find seminars and training groups to educate them until their brains saturate with facts.
