Douro River House

Douro V6

Located just a stone’s throw from the world famous Duoro River, the Duror River House is a stunning and spacious colonial-style hunting lodge unlike anywhere you will have been before.

The Douro region is world famous for its wine and gastronomy, and the River House offers the perfect spring-board for exploring this ripe area of valleys, vines and mountains. Offering breath-taking views from its private infinity pool over the meandering Duoro River, this house is not one to be missed.

The inside of the villa is done up in the style of a traditional fishing lodge, but with the most modern of amenities. A huge, open plan central living and dining area will take your breath away, with its wooden flooring, brick walls and exquisite wooden furnishings. Spacious sofas are placed on two sides of the room, in beiges and browns that suit the atmosphere perfectly. Double fireplaces add to the cosiness of the space, with an austere stag’s head mounted on the wall above them to create a real feeling of tradition and history.

Large double doors line one wall, bathing the room in light from outside and providing glorious views of the garden leading to the river. Up three steps from the living room is the open-plan dining area, also complete with its own fire place, high ceilings, and a beautiful wooden table with enough seating for the whole party. Low-hanging ceiling lights give this dining area a sultry glow that creates the perfect ambience for dinner parties, and afterwards why not head to the one-of-a-kind library, where you can fully soak up a sense of relaxation and tuck into a good book.

There are six double bedrooms at the Duoro River House, all done up with floral bed coverings, light floor rugs covering the wooden flooring, and stunning wooden furnishings. Each bedroom has its own private bathroom, with double sinks, large mirrors, and perfect modern showers and amenities to ensure you have the most comfortable an cleanly of stays. The rooms have plenty of cupboard space and large windows to create a light and airy feel.

The infinity pool, overlooking the river, is one of the villa’s most memorable spots, and here the whole party can enjoy sunbathing in the heart of nature, with the rolling green riverbanks surrounding you. There are also outdoor seating areas, so you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner at the same time as the breath-taking nature around you.

Breakfast is served daily and there is also a daily cleaning service, taking the hassle out of your stay completely. Our five star concierge service is of course available when staying here, so if there are any activities, such as wine tasting or walking, that you want organised, look no further! Some favourite activities often include the famous Presidential Train Gourmet Cuisine and Wine Experience, boat trips along the river, water sports and picnics in the stunning mountains.  A stay at the Duoro River House will be a truly magical and memorable experience for all.
