Do you know The Douro Valley?
So close but at the same time feeling so far. At only two hours from home, we discover a true paradise for the most gourmet people.
After landing in Oporto we set off on our route, guided by Douro River, until the arrival to Six Senses Douro Valley, which lifts majestically among the surrounding vineyards.
What better than to start the tribute with a visit to Six Senses Spa, among vapors and bubbles, to enjoy a revitalizing treatment?
Once we are renovated, it is time to delight in the gastronomic experience of The Vale de Abraao, to the heat of the fire.
A new day begins at Six Senses Douro Valley. Nothing better than a stimulating race with chef Marc Lores to win the succulent breakfast cooked by chef Álvaro.
It is essential to not miss some of the magical enclaves of the region, such as Lamego or Pinhao villages, or the endless amount of country houses and wine cellars that settle The Douro Valley.
Returning to Six Senses, it is time to savor some of the best wines of the region, hand in hand with the passionate sommelier Manuel.
We also took advantage of discovering another fantastic enclave on the banks of Douro River, in Douro 41. With a glass of wine in hand, we delighted with the best views of the emblematic river.
It is time to go back home, with the certainty of having discovered a new place that, with no doubt, deserves to be taken into account for our future escapes
