Douro 41 Hotel | Portugal

Douro River in Portugal is perhaps the most beautiful river in the Iberian Peninsula. Designed by Portuguese Architect Joćo Pedro Serōdio, Douro 41 Hotel is modern, cozy, intimate and has a sophisticated decor. The hotel offers two options of accommodation, suites as well as villas, ideal for families and groups of friends. From one to three bedrooms, the villas are fully equipped for complete autonomy and have terraces and private gardens. Both options have in common the breathtaking views of the river. Whilst staying at the hotel you can experience a number of activities: walking or all-terrain cycling, various water sports such as skiing, canoeing and jet skiing, and of course visiting the world famous Douro wine cellars.
