At the gates of the Douro Valley, between the mountains of Marão and Montemuro and the edge of a small arm of the river water, the Houses of Pousadouro are a small gathering of rural houses whose set exudes the soul of a small village. Here, the Douro is so much more than just one of the finest wine-growing regions in the world. The landscape is dominated by water mirrors shrouded on the relaxed green of the slopes and the disperse housing that gives to this view a human element. Fusing harmoniously the traditional architecture with the contemporary interiors, the cottages offer large windows that enhance the connection to nature, a sophisticated mix of rustic, classic with modern. A secret hideout, where the body and the mind come together to find a serene balance and pure inspiration.

 6. Delicious meals at your door 

1. Here, we literally understand what inspired Eça de Queiroz writing “The City and the Mountains”. This nature refuge where body and mind are balanced is the perfect place to meditate and relax.

2. Wonderfully framed by the natural landscape, this is the perfect setting for relaxation. The comfortable chairs invite to read peacefully or indulge in a nap.

3. Pousadouro is a unique place to get to know the Douro. Take a boat trip on the river with Bastião Natureza (max 5 pax), with boarding on the pier of the property.

4. The Douro river allows endless water activities. There are kayaks and padles (for free) available for the use of guests.

5. In such scenario, the walks in the hills or on the river banks are an invitation to enjoy nature. Ask for the available maps.

Where To Go
 1. The Douro Valley 
 2. Wine Tasting 
 3. The Jacinto’s trail 
 4. Baião 
 5. Douro Museum 
 6. Gastronomy 

1. It is a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Santa Cruz do Douro, considered one of the most beautiful landscapes of the Valley, is situated on the edge of the granitic zone and bordering the oldest demarcated wine region in the world.

2. Near by, Quinta da Covela (once owned by filmmaker Manoel de Oliveira) is worth a visit. Dated from the 16th century, it offers excellent wine and scenic views.

3. The route starts at the Tormes railway station and ends up at the manor house that hosts the Eça de Queiróz Foundation.

4. From the Ancede Monastery to the pretty churches and chapels, Roman roads, typical villages, and local crafts, there are lots of reasons to visit Baião.

5. In Régua, the center of the Douro, the beautiful building overlooking the river’s marginal, is the new ex-libris of the city.

6. Don’t miss the traditional smokehouse meat, the lamb with rice roasted in a wood oven and the Arouquesa veal steak.
