Six Senses Douro Valley

The Douro Valley 3 nights low season from £995 per person

Located in the heart of the Douro Valley, 90 minutes’ drive from Porto airport and opened in July 2015, this is Europe’s first Six Senses resort. The original 19th century manorhouse has been upgraded and extended into one of the country’s most stylish and contemporary properties, spread over 19 acres.

Our good friend Nick Yarnell is the General Manager and he has assembled an excellent team who provide exceptional service. The hotel has 57 bedrooms including several villas with private pools, a large summer swimming pool and, of course, a signature Six Senses spa with ten treatment rooms and a heated indoor pool.

The hotel's excellent restaurant ‘Vale de Abraao’ serves local specialities, including ingredients harvested from the hotel's own organic kitchen garden, and it has a large terrace for alfresco dining. Drinks and tapas are served throughout the day in the Wine Library & Terrace, where you can enjoy a tutored wine-tasting with an expert sommelier, or simply relax with a glass of Douro red.

The hotel's Earth Lab is a fascinating concept where a dedicated sustainability team works closely with chefs and landscapers to maintain the organic garden, mushroom huts and chicken 'palaces'. The garden is designed to maximize the productivity of local varieties of fruits and vegetables, reducing the carbon footprint of the resort, and is open for guests to explore.

If you choose to hire a car you can discover more of the local area including local vineyards and the nearby town of Pinhao, but with or without your own transport, the staff are on hand to help arrange excursions, winery visits and river cruises on the Douro, or to suggest walking itineraries in the surrounding counrtyside.

3 night low season price from £995 per person, 3 night high season price from £1,328 per person
