Vineyard-covered hills serve as the stunning backdrop of this 19th century manor house, Six Senses Douro Valley, set high on a hill.
Six Senses Douro Valley is located in the Douro ecosystem, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the world’s oldest wine regions. Terraced mountains stretch as far as the eye can see, a hotbed of wine production for more than 2,000 years. Woodlands with old-growth trees surrounds this property: a drop of luxury in a sea of serenity.
Choose from luxury rooms, pool villas, apartments, and suites with variations of scenic vineyard and woodland vistas. Large windows in each space let in ample sunlight and stunning panoramic views. White azulejo tiles, cork ceilings, oak floors, and gold leaf walls are all sourced in-country. The color theme is monochromatic to let the exquisite natural hues outside enhance your abode.
Preserving the environment is a key focus at Six Senses Douro Valley. Food waste is composted, materials are recycled, and water, gas, and electricity consumption is monitored daily.
The organic garden provides fresh vegetables and herbs to enhance the delicious meals prepared on site. A partnership with a local farmer allows this property to grow its own fresh fruits and vegetables for the guests. Dine on regional cuisine and crispy bread prepared in the wood-fired oven. Sit outside on the beautiful stone paved courtyard high above the vineyards to enjoy your meal in the glorious weather. If you prefer, stay inside and pull up a seat at the long communal table by the large fireplace. Sip on a drink and nibble on delicious tapas and cheese in the bar and lounge.
Relax with a facial or massage in the award-winning spa. Ten treatment rooms and an indoor and outdoor pool, plus a refreshment bar, means you will walk out of the spa feeling rejuvenated. Local grapes and citrus are used in the therapies to further enhance the relaxation.
Oenophiles can get their fill of vino tradition in the area. Visit old wineries nearby and learn how the grapes are harvested. If you like, and the timing is right, participate in a stomping of the grapes. It is messy, but fun work.
Enjoy the fresh air and green landscape on a Douro river cruise. Take a leisurely stroll through the little villages with historic churches and ancient castles that speak to the rich history of this beautiful region.Request Information
