The Douro valley meanders lazily through a green and hilly landscape covered with vineyards in the unspoiled countryside of northern Portugal. After a beautiful, and somewhat bumpy ride (over the last 2km stretch), the small-scale boutique hotel, Casa do Rio, appears on the horizon – an architectural gem comprising wood and glass. The spectacular location, with uninterrupted views over the River Douro, makes a stay here truly special. So, leave your busy schedule behind and surrender to peace and tranquillity in the heart of nature.
Casa do Rio boasts a small and intimate design with only 6 rooms and 2 suites. The compact, yet cleverly designed rooms and suites are stylishly decorated with crisp white linens and thus ideal for a romantic break. Each room benefits from a seating area with an eye-catching wood-burning stove and a private terrace overlooking the valley. With several seating areas furnished with leather sofas and armchairs, and a fireplace for those chillier evenings, the modern and spacious living room is exceptionally cosy. There is also a terrace for sunny breakfasts and romantic candlelight dinners. Laze away your days next to the infinity swimming pool with spectacular views over the valley, enjoy wine tasting, help with the harvest or enjoy an unforgettable cruise along the Douro valley. Also Casa do Rio has its own spa, where you can enjoy a sauna, hot tub and steam cabin for free. A wonderful addition to your stay!
