A nineteenth-century, renovated hilltop manor house surrounded by lush vineyards sloping steeply down to the banks of the River Douro. Such a location in northern Portugal makes the perfect setting for the Six Senses Douro Valley.
A four-hour drive from Lisbon, and just 90 minutes from the charming, bustling city of Porto, Six Senses Douro Valley is a peaceful getaway designed to help guests unwind and recharge. This hidden gem offers spectacular views and contains 300 acres of woodland begging exploration – all in a UNESCO World Heritage setting that celebrates Portugal’s rich winemaking culture.
There is plenty to entertain at Six Senses Douro Valley. Guests have access to a glass-fronted yoga studio, indoor and outdoor pools, a fully-equipped gym, and the neighbouring woodlands or gardens for strolling. Visit the Wine Library & Terrace for vintage tastings and tapas, set in a room with eclectic furnishings that immerse you in the local experience.
The on-site Vale de Abraão Restaurant sources herbs and vegetables freshly picked from the property’s organic farm mere metres away. Guests can watch chefs prepare succulent local and regional dishes from the open kitchen or dine out on the terrace to take in the views. Everything is seasonal and showcases local ingredients and seasonings to give you a taste of northern Portuguese cuisine.
Six Senses Douro Valley also offers wellness programs that combine fitness, detoxes, and sleep programs with guided meditation and wholesome cuisine. The holistic approach towards wellness means therapies are tailored for each guest’s individual needs and goals.
Though it can be hard to venture away from the superb resort grounds, there is plenty to entice in the local villages and surroundings. Make the most of the region by hiring a car to explore neighbouring monasteries, museums, and baroque churches. Or relax in style while taking in the sights with a river cruise, historic train ride, or even a deluxe helicopter tour.
