Description from owner


Attractive T1 Chalet for hire on a small private Marina on the banks of the Douro River - Portugal.





The scenery is breath-taking, spectacular really - no wonder it's a World Heritage site!

Our Marina is a lovely little spot on the river, perfect for people that appreciate nature and outdoor activities.

Nearby there are charming little family-run restaurants where you can have superb meals at very reasonable prices.

You can explore the valley with our boats and stop where ever you like, you can also take tours by train along the valley, walk in the vineyards, visit farms and small towns or simply swim in the warm clear waters of the river.

At the marina our guests also can find: small sail boats, kayaks, bicycles, barbecue, even a swimming pool.

The climate is pleasant from April to October..

Give it a go. It's great fun, great value for money and thoroughly enjoyable!

Very Good


Reviewed 21 Sep 2019

Just back from a fantastic stay. Being September the chalets were less busier than the Summer Season which made our holiday more relaxed. Josė organised us a day out on a boat with our skipper Emmanuel. Emmanuel was extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about the Douro area. We had a late lunch at a restaurant (100m from the chalets) which was very enjoyable. I would recommend the veal. Overall a fantastic stay. We'll definetly be back next year.

“once in a lifetime holiday - fantastic”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2015

How many holidays do you take a train down one of the most beautiful railway lines in Europe (Douro valley line from Porto Campanha to Ferradosa) to be greeted by your host in a speedboat! We arrived in Ferradosa, Jose met us at the station and took us to his complex. The chalets are comfortable and acceptable for two couples (one double bed in the living area). They are air conditioned and have their private sitting area with lots of shade and plenty of hammocks. The views are fantastic. We had access to the swimming pool, kayaks and table tennis. Plenty to explore nearby. We stayed two nights (one at the beginning and one at the end of our boat charter). Jose was very helpful driving me to the local supermarket and showing me the local sites. We ate in the nearby restaurant (5 mins walk) the food was excellent, service was friendly and courteous, good value too. It was a great place to stay relaxed calm and friendly.

“Quiet - great scenery - wonderful stretch of river for the boating activities”

Reviewed 15 Oct 2013

The chalets are basic but comfortable - there is lots of shaded space for lounging around outside overlooking the river and the rocky as well as vine clad h;ills. The sailing is great - and there are also canoes and kayaks available (free in 2013). José is a good host - discreet but available and always willing to help you get the best from your holiday. DO say 'yes' if he suggests fish soup......!
