Northern Portugal region
The Northern region has some of the most beautiful landscapes in Portugal. Amidst vineyards, orchards and rich historical heritage stand little hamlets and villages of granite and whitewashed houses. Lovely lagoons, Trout Rivers and steep mountain slopes create a panorama of unsurpassed beauty.
The Port vineyards cover approximately 250,000 hectares, of which 40,000 are under vine.They are planted along the steep, spectacular hills overlooking the River Douro and its tributaries. Generations of men and women have toiled tirelessly to build terraces into the rock face (an essential element for supporting the vines on these slopes) that have created an impressive landscape of unequaled beauty where hot summers are followed by warm autumns, wet winters and beautiful springs.
It is the region’s characteristic poor soil and uncompromising Mediterranean-like climate which produces one of the most sought after wines in the world, Port.
You can explore it on our boats and stop where ever you like, 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.

"once in a lifetime holiday - fantastic"
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"
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......!

"Vineyards, hiking, sailing and relaxation"
We initially booked the holiday, hoping to do some sailing. Unfortunately the weather wasn´t great, so instead we did a lot of hiking in the surounding hills and vineyards. The views are spectacular and the hiking trails well marked. We didn´t rent a car, as the property is easily reached by a lovely train journey along the Douro. Jose and Gustavo were very helpful and friendly and put themselves out to help us,drive us around, show us places of interest and take us shopping. Jose also took us out on a day boat trip and to a lovely local restaurant for a typical local lunch. The location of the chalets is magical - so peaceful and quiet and relaxing, and the little pool is great when the weather is hot. However, without a car, you are very restricted, as there is only one restaurant within walking distance and no shops. September was a great time to visit as it is grape harvest time, so it was very interesting to go around all the wineries, see (and take part in if you want) the grape trampling, and of course sample lots of port.
