Explore Douro Valley with Elegant Resorts

Marvelling at the lush, vine-covered hills of Douro Valley it is not hard to believe that the area is UNESCO World Heritage-listed and considered one of the most beautiful wine regions in the world. As the lazy River Douro meanders through the valley, be transported back in time: first to the 1970s when innovative man-made terraces, built to restructure wine-producing techniques, greatly altered the natural landscape. Then, back to the region’s heyday when wealthy noblemen from afar flocked to the valley to profit from its wine-producing success, building palaces and grand mansions. Seek out the fascinating archaeological sites of crumbling remains to travel back further still to Roman times when the valley was first developed. The area has somehow maintained a harmonious balance between human activity and the natural environment; an enchanting landscape to explore. Olive groves, historic churches, traditional Quintas and villages define its rustic charm. One can almost imagine the traditional Rabelo boats carrying wine downstream to Porto – the commercial hub of the region that is now a stunning tourist hotspot, rich in history. Here, visitors can tour the Port wine cellars at Vila Nova de Gaia, wander the colourful streets and view the imposing and iconic Dom Luís I Bridge.
