The Aquapura Douro Valley:
“Located in the heart of the Douro valley, classified as world heritage by UNESCO, the Aquapura Douro Valley is surrounded by a magnificent landscape overlooking the Douro river.
The hotel opened in 2007 and has as its trademark a contemporary and sophisticated design, with an exceptional attention to detail and exotic art. Each space is unique and reflects the colours and textures of the Douro region. The balance between the traditional architecture of a 19th century building and its interior design based on pure and contemporary lines gave rise to an atmosphere where serenity reigns. From its balconies or wide panoramic windows one can enjoy stunning views of terraced slopes covered with century old vineyards overlooking the majestic Douro river.
The hotel, set in 8 hectares of land, has 50 rooms and suites, 21 villas, a spa with 2,200 m2 (21,528 ft2), 2 restaurants, a bar and a pool bar, a wine-room, a library, an outside heated swimming pool, a tennis court, a meeting lounge and 5 hectares (4942 acres) of forest.
Take a look outside and you will see how well the hotel’s interiors blend with the colours and textures of the landscape, bringing to life the different nuances in the colours of wine and the sunlight. All rooms and bathrooms are fitted with the most modern equipments: heated bathroom floors, shower and a wide and comfortable bath tub. Latest technology in lighting, telephones, LCD TVs with IP technology and wireless internet.
The villas, ideal for family or more secluded stays, enjoy all the facilities of the Hotel and have their own private pools. They include a fully equipped kitchen and an open fireplace in the living-room.”
