Description

Six Senses Douro Valley has undergone an ambitious refurbishment and reopened in 2015. Formerly known as Aquapura Douro Valley, this converted 19th century manor house, lies in a very picturesque bend in the beautiful Douro valley nestled amidst vineyards and overlooking the river, in the heart of a UNESCO world heritage site. The Douro region is rich in culture, tradition and gastronomy, and famous for its wine and port making.

This hotel has 50 contemporary rooms and suites, many with panoramic views of the surrounding vineyards, the river and 8 hectares of lush green gardens.

The Villas da Vinha, located closer to the hotel, are surrounded by vineyards and have three shared pools. They are decorated in a more traditional style using rustic stone and rich fabrics.

From the hotel you can explore this fascinating local area, take a boat trip on the Douro, try local Portuguese cuisine and taste the fantastic regional wines.
