Your room

With only 50 rooms and suites to choose from you’ll feel right at home in this secluded retreat. The rooms offer panoramic windows offering spectacular views of the river or surrounding countryside. We loved the spa rooms are designed for the spa junkie in mind, with panoramic views over the woods and a private plunge pool to soak in after a long day wine tasting. For families and groups of friends, there are also 21 villas all of which have shared or private plunge pool.

Why we like it

At the Six Senses Douro Valley, you can be as relaxed or as active as you wish. We love the gourmet offerings at the property where winery visits, tastings and cooking lessons are a must. For those looking to get off the beaten path we can organize biking tour and picnic hampers so you can explore the surrounding countryside and its picturesque monasteries, museums and baroque churches. But the real highlight? Time your visit for the wine harvest in September and October and lend a hand collecting the grapes before stomping them down the old-fashioned way.
