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.
