Luxury Douro Six Senses - Duoro Valley Wine Hotel Portugal
Day 1

Today is all about relaxing. Check into your luxury five-star spa hotel. A serene setting of vine-covered rolling hills and the majestic River Douro. Come and stay in this beautifully renovated 19th-century manor house with glorious gardens, woodlands and sweeping panoramas. In the afternoon relax in the spa, take a swim in the indoor pool whilst gazing out across the garden views, sip a glass of organic local and try your hand at alchemy or venture outside and practice forest bathing. The setting really is magical amongst the vines.

Tonight enjoy a pre-dinner wine tasting of six wines with the pairing of one regional cheese, local “presunto ham” and smoked sausage.

 

Day 2

Today your private wine guide and chauffeur will collect you from your hotel for a tour of the port lodges of the magnificent Douro Valley. Take in the stunning scenery along the winding roads towards Pinhao. Here you’ll take a tour of a famous Port Lodge and wander through vineyards with dramatic views across the surrounding hills and nearby Távora River.  Visit another two boutique wine estates and meet the humble but passionate winemakers who make this region so famous. Taste their produce and learn about the winemaking process.  Refuel with a six-course lunch alongside six wines, served in a magnificently located restaurant with its own terraced garden and views down the Douro.

Day 3

Make the most of this amazing setting: relax in the pool, visit the hotel library and learn about the history of the winemaking region, or indulge in a spa treatment – everything from hot stone and almond oil massage, to an orange and lemon wrap with fruit from the organic gardens. If you are feeling energetic, why not enjoy a morning of kayaking on the Douro, or  we would happily arrange for a river cruise so you can bid a final farewell to the capital of port wine.

Very well organised trip to Tuscany, getting in 2 wine regions. Lovely hotel with amazing view. The best part was our guide Paula who ensured our wine tasting tours were with smaller wineries which have authenticity and care for the environment. Highly recommend SmoothRed!

SmoothRed did an outstanding job providing chauffeured driven wine tour through Bourgogne and the Rhone valley (France). The multiple vendors they used were all Courteous, Prompt, and very fluent in English. This 7 day trip went without problems. I would highly recommend SmoothRed.
