Alentejo, Lisbon, Porto and Douro - How to live a Luxury Life in Portugal?

23.07.2021

Portugal is one very special European gem where luxury is in simplicity and in the authenticity of what is genuine. Home to fresh breezes off the Atlantic that are lightly kissed with the scent of the sea – here, from the golden Alentejo until the emerald green Douro, days are bright and Nature blooms beautifully, which makes doing anything outdoors a simple joy. Traditional, colorful boats that bob in small harbors bring in the fresh catch, which now awaits your dining pleasure.

Alentejo, Lisbon, Porto, and the Douro, each region has its particularities, but it is undeniable that ancient history and traditions have infused every aspect of this picturesque country, filled with hospitality, astounding architecture, incredible culture, excellent gastronomy, and premium wines. Let us guide you through this journey now and in your future trip to Portugal!

 

Alentejo

Covering almost a third of the country, Alentejo is a vast region of cork plantation, wheat fields, vineyards, and clusters of historic hilltop towns. Explore the rolling hillsides, endless plains, Roman ruins, Moorish castles, marble towns and whitewashed villages, and its sweeping Atlantic beaches.

If you wish to unveil all this, including a stay at L’AND Vineyards Wine Luxury Resort in your Luxury Tour Alentejo might be a great idea. Located at the heart of Alentejo, this 5 Star “Wine Resort” is the perfect retreat under the stars, combining excellent gastronomy, wine, accommodation, and wellness experiences, in an exclusive and contemporary ambiance.

Plunge into the stunning landscapes of golden plains and infinite sky, and discover some of the secrets of the picture-perfect wine states like Monte da Ravasqueira - where you can find a modern wine production inspired by Napa Valley – or the world-renowned Herdade do Esporão.

 

Lisbon

Europe’s second-oldest capital, Lisbon is an effortlessly elegant city, full of old-world charm. Winding your way through the city, you’ll pass rows of houses in warm shades of orange, yellow, and rust red. Lisbon has plenty to offer, with a panoply of museums and galleries, as well as beautiful buildings covered in iconic azulejo tiles.

One of our suggestions goes to the Four Seasons Hotel Ritz, a symbol of luxury in Portugal since it was built in the late 1950s. Smartly located within walking distance of certain landmarks such as the Marquês de Pombal Statue, as well as the designer stores on Avenida da Liberdade.

Some of the best awarded Michelin stars restaurants are in the Lisbon area. For instance, Belcanto, by the renowned Chef José Avillez, presents extremely unique and creative dishes, in which you will savor the Portuguese gastronomy, filled with flavors and textures. And for wine lovers, the wine list of the restaurant is extensive and diversified with over 350 references. Indeed, there are plenty of places to stop – just make sure you don’t forget to savor a typical Portuguese pastel de nata (custard tart) while watching the world go by.

Lisbon is known for its lively streets, but let’s not forget the best-kept secret of the Lisbon area - its beautiful wine region. Surely, the truest wine connoisseurs will include a visit to Quinta da Chocapalha and Quinta do Gradil for their custom tour.

 

Porto and Douro

Porto is one of Europe's most charming. Built on a steep riverbank, a jumble of colorful medieval houses hug the calm waters of the Douro River, where wooden boats bob on the surface. Could it be more romantic? Walk the magnificent Porto city center and uncover its architecture and cultural sites until you reach the emblematic and secular Port Wine Cellars, where you can taste the most exclusive wines, including Vintage – at the famous Taylor’s Cellars, you can even attend a Vintage Master Class, aimed wine lovers who want to learn more about this style.

You will find incredible luxury hotels in the area that will allow you to experience the best that the region has to offer in style. Whether you enjoy watersports and outdoor activities such as walking, bird-watching, mountain-biking or golf, culture, and the arts, horticulture and botanical gardens, contrasting architecture, history, or gastronomy, you can find it all here in this fantastic city, the luxury tours of Porto are simply memorable. Meanwhile, we suggest you passing by DOC restaurant. Built over the river, this creative and sophisticated spot lives up to the expectations surrounding the Michelin starred-Chef Rui Paula, with a colorful menu rooted in both tradition and modernity, smartly paired with a comprehensive wine list.

The North of Portugal is only complete with a visit to the beautiful Douro Valley. This region offers spectacular views, hypnotizing beauty, and rustic charm, its natural beauty will blow you away – including a river cruise will definitely elevate even more your luxurious tour

We invite you to discover the best estates and wineries in the Douro Valley, such as Quinta das Carvalhas and Quinta Nova Nossa Senhora do Carmo, where you will have premium experiences with the experts - in one of them you will have the agricultural engineer with you! Delight yourself with the many flavors of both the wines and fine gastronomy in the Douro Valley for a great comprehension of the region on a lovely tour.
