This striking eco-resort on a 19-acre vine-planted hillside overlooking a sinuous bend in the Douro combines a traditional 19th-century manor house and contemporary buildings. The 60 guest rooms contain daybeds, large windows and gray limestone baths. Some of the lodgings feature private pools; terraces with sweeping panoramic views of vineyards, the river or scenic woodlands; and wooden bridges leading to small gardens. The hotel’s formal restaurant serves market-inspired regional cuisine, and the Wine Library & Terrace offers a tapas menu and daily guided wine-and-cheese tastings. The 23,700-square-foot spa has a huge indoor pool, yoga pavilion and gym. Other facilities include an outdoor pool and a well-stocked library. Guided hikes and pottery workshops can be arranged, and in September and October, guests can partake in the harvest time tradition of grape stomping.
