Paddling Portugal's River of Wine

Accommodations

Hotel Infante Sagres
Location
Porto, Portugal

A member of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World, Infante Sagres is Porto’s leading boutique hotel, an icon of classic design and refined atmosphere located in the city’s historic district, just minutes from City Hall, the UNESCO World Heritage area and the art district. The hotel's interiors blend contemporary and Neo-Baroque design to create an ambience that's both grand and intimate at the same time. The hotel's 70 rooms have numerous amenities including air conditioning, private bathrooms and wireless Internet. Each is individually decorated with original artwork and antiques. The property recently underwent an extensive renovation, with a major refurbishment in 2018.
Casa de Santa Cruz
Location
Felgar, Portugal

Built in the mid-1700s and lovingly restored by our hosts, Anna and Jorge, Casa de Santa Cruz retains a historical significance in Felgar. Originally a farmstead with livestock quarters on the lower level, this meticulously renovated inn is located directly on the village square, where local residents still come to chat and lead donkeys to drink from the public water trough. Yet its heavy stone and stucco walls insulate the interior, assuring guests of a quiet retreat inside. Casa de Santa Cruz features 12 rooms, each with private en suite facilities. Shared spaces include two inviting lounges for reading or conversation, a large contemporary dining room where outstanding regional food and wine is served, and a tranquil terrace and swimming pool. 
Casa do Rio
Location
Foz Coa, Portugal

Part of the Quinta do Vallado wine estate in the Upper Douro Valley, Casa do Rio offers stunning new luxury accommodations in Portugal's wine country. With just six guest suites, the elegant contemporary inn is located amid the vineyards with 180-degree views over an ancient orange orchard and the Douro River below. Built of wood and stone and set into a steep hillside, the sophisticated guest house exists in aesthetic harmony with its natural surroundings. As part of the owners' commitment to sustainable wine tourism, the "river house" was constructed with environmental consciousness in mind in every element of its design and operations. Deluxe rooms feature a crisp, contemporary white color scheme accented with rich brown leather furniture. Each suite has a separate living area with sofa, fireplace, flat screen TV, telephone, Wi-Fi and coffee-making station. Wall-to-wall glass doors open onto a veranda with panoramic territorial views. A rectangular infinity pool surveys the river, inviting a refreshing dip on a warm afternoon. Guests enjoy outstanding meals made on the premises, accented with local wines.
Bairro do Casal
Location
Murca, Portugal

Bairro do Casal is located in the hamlet of Murca, perched on a mountain slope near Vila Nova de Foz Coa in the Douro River Port wine region. The village, tucked between the valley and mountains, is surrounded by vineyards, almond and olive orchards, a bucolic landscape of serene natural beauty. Bairro do Casal is a peaceful retreat comprised of typical Portuguese stone houses that have been rebuilt in harmony with the rural heritage of the village. The architectural details fully preserve the original design, materials and construction techniques characteristic of the region, with stone and wood elements throughout. All villas have en suite bathrooms with toiletries and a hair dryer; some have a bath tub while others have a shower. The villas share an outdoor swimming pool.
Casa de Casal de Loivos
Location
Pinhao, Portugal

Set high atop a mountain surveying the silver ribbon of the Douro River far below, Casa de Casal de Loivos enjoys a panorama that the BBC called one of the six best hotel views in the world. This classic manor house built in 1658 has been in the Pereira de Sampayo family since 1733, and was lovingly restored in 1991. Its truly privileged location offers one of the most scenic settings in Portugal, unanimously considered the best view over the Douro Valley. The house includes six traditionally furnished rooms, all with private bathrooms and doors opening onto the terrace. Meals are served on the terrace, weather permitting, with sweeping views over the private vineyard and river far below. A large swimming pool surrounded by lawn and gardens enjoys the same vista, while the indoor lounge provides a cozy space to relax by the fireplace on cooler evenings.
