Travel Tips

Douro has This Charismatic and Undeniable Allure

03.04.2020

We know some important dates are now celebrated at a distance, and promises are made to change it soon. Plan now the most amazing getaway to celebrate the end of this isolation period, either together or as a surprise. Planning a romantic trip will both ease the distance between you with moments of amusement and create a promise of a celebration of love and new memories together in the future.

Portugal has that feel of romance all over it. Being such an old country, so many historical couples fill our history books: From the Shakesperean love of Pedro and Inês de Castro, a true story, to the myths of beautiful enchanted Moors awaiting knights near rivers and fountains, all that is part of the Portuguese culture, and it is reflected everywhere from the Douro Valley to Alentejo or Algarve. In literature, architecture, culinary, even Nature seem to tell us untold love stories wherever you lay your eyes on. So lay your eyes on Portugal and choose your special place and bring on those feelings to celebrate in the most exclusive hidden-gems Portugal hides from unattentive travelers, but that will be revealed to you.

 

The Beautiful Douro Valley

Douro Valley has no shortage of gorgeous views, that's for sure. Dreamy resorts and breathtaking natural landscapes, incredible restaurants, and terraces to enjoy delicious meals or exquisite wines, riverboat cruises and helicopter rides so you can take love high above the ground. This region is idyllic, the landscape is Unesco protected, and the fantastic river and the microclimate create unique and fantastic conditions for memorable experiences. You fell a myth feel while in the stunning Douro. Some of the most romantic places in Douro Valley are located at the top of its sinuous hills. Charismatic Quintas, farmhouses, and wineries sprinkle of white the intense green of both the vineyards and water, secret places of difficult access where a helicopter is both welcome and desired as it turns the trip into a memorable experience. Thats just a glimpse of what a tour in Douro has to offer.

Moreover, Conde Nast Traveler 2020 Gold List of editors' favorite hotels, resorts, and cruise ships in the world has been revealed. They have written that -  "They're gold as in exceptional. Gold as in classic. Gold as in brilliant. Gold as in you'd do it all tomorrow." and Six Senses Douro Valley is just there waving at you, inviting you into its "huge pool, framed by gardens abundant with ripe fruit, including peaches that will be grilled and served with burrata, and lemons that are squeezed into scrubs in the spa’s potion-whipping Alchemy Bar." And the words from Conde Naste keep describing this enchanted place: "From design to outlook, Six Senses has given the wine-country hotel a thoroughly 21st-century update. (...) The designer Clodagh created a more contemporary minimalist vibe, and now a new wing has rooftop and vineyard rooms, each with private hot tubs. Naturally, there is a strong emphasis on local wines." 

Isn't it such a delight? This is Portugal, a place in the world where privacy is possible and exclusive experiences are beyond expected. So lay your eyes on Portugal and linger a little longer as you will fall in love with this special country. So private, so exclusive, so bespoken.
