ABOUT THE DOURO

A symbol of Portugal’s birth and growth as a nation, the Douro has long been the country’s lifeline. Leaving the pastel-coloured metropolis of Porto, venture through the enchanting countryside.

Following the winding Douro river east from Porto reveals one of the most scenic drives in Europe and Portugal’s premier wine region, the Douro Valley. With terraces of vines lining the riverbanks, Douro Valley holidays offer stunning hiking trails, beautiful viewpoints and a wonderful selection of peaceful retreats.

In the Douro, you will find quiet towns and villages, vineyards hugging the bends, castles from the time of the Reconquest and other places worthy of a stop to look far into the horizon.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Villa Baiuca gives guests the best of both worlds, placing them close to all of the most popular tourist hotspots but also keeping them within a quiet and peaceful location. As such, children will love exploring all of the sights whilst also being able to unwind inside the comfort of the villa. If you are looking to explore Douro’s religious landmarks, the Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Remedies is a key piece of the region’s history. This immaculate attraction is the national monument of the city of Lamego, which is just over 15-minutes away from the Duoro Valley. The Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Remedies is at the top of Mount St Stephen. In order to reach this landmark, guests are encouraged to climb over 600 steps in order to reach the top. During this journey, you will also see a collection of other significant landmarks, all of which add to Duoro’s rich Catholic roots.
 
For guests travelling to Duoro in September, you have the chance to take part in the production of some of the region’s finest wines. The Vindima program involves squashing grapes with your own two feet, a unique process that is a key element in Portuguese winemaking. Although not all of the wineries in the region accept tourists, institutions such as Quinta do Infantado allow guests onto their estate and encourage them to join in on the fun. This particular experience also includes an exclusive wine tasting for the grown-ups. Quinta do Infantado is located just over 40-minutes away from the Duoro Valley, and tickets for this experience cost just €25 for both adults and children.
 
As the Duoro Valley is so large, it can be difficult to capture its true beauty in just a few trips. Luckily, there are a collection of train journeys that allow guests to experience all of the sights in one go. The InterRegional train is a historic route that was originally constructed to transport wine from Porto to Pocihno. Tourists are encouraged to catch the train from Sao Bento, which is just under 90-minutes away from the Duoro Valley. Then, you will embark on a magnificent three-hour journey, travelling through 20 tunnels and over 30 bridges, all alongside the tremendous Douro River. These train tickets are very affordable, costing just €14 each.
