Very Good

“A fabulous experience”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2015

Seldom do holidays exceed all expectations, but in the case of Dourovou we could not have had a better experience. The Douro is a perfect place to visit for a short sailing holiday, with an almost guaranteed breeze every afternoon and some mornings. The equipment and boats at Dourovou were in perfect condition and beautifully maintained. Jose was a perfect host and skipper, considerate of our desire to learn about sailing and a mine of information on the history of the river. I can't think of a better and more relaxing holiday. It was surprisingly easy to drive to Ferradosa, though the train from Porto is an easy option. The countryside is beautiful, the whole river amazingly calm, quiet and unspoilt and the wines glorious. Do ask Jose for directions to the local restaurants, all of which offer outstanding value and quality. Thank you for a great holiday and visit.

Owner's reply: For me, it was one of the most enjoyable cruises I ever done... It was big fun... in good company!!!

“magical spot”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2015

We woke up in the morning and could only listen to the birds! The view of the river and its valleys was spectacular. Jose was very kind, the boatrip he arranged was magical and we enjoyed it a lot! Thank you Jose!

“Adventure and tranquility”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2012

If you like adventure and something more rural and 'off the beaten track', I would highly recommend a holiday with Dourovou. We chose the yacht charter for 6 nights (11th June 2012). The journey to the destination/ yacht pick up (near Ferradosa train station), is a metro trip from airport to train station (45 minutes), followed by a train ride (2 and a half hours) to Ferradosa train station - the train journey is very, very cheap and amazing in itself winding its way round the Douro. On arrival we were looked after by Jose; had a comfortable night in one of his chalets, meal and lift to the supermarket to pick up supplies for week ahead, then shown how to use the boat and we were away. Jose also gave us a itinerary which we found useful to follow and made sure we had lock times etc. There are many places to moor, a fair few restaurants although take enough food to have evening meals and lunches. The walk on the old railway line in Barca d'Alva is amazing. The restaurants are very cheap - less than 20 Euros for 2 people with 2 courses, bread and lots of wine. The best thing about this holiday was the tranquillity, the culture and beautiful scenery… and of course it was good fun being on a boat all week!

“Sailing Douro river”

Reviewed 31 May 2012

Charting a 26 MacGregor for a week or more is the best way to visit Douro river by your own . The boats are easy to sail and very confortable . Mr. Alberto gave us a river map and sujested places for having excelent meals at nice and cheap restaurants and also to stay at night . The landscape is overwhelming . It was a diferent week vacation and unforgetable for life . I pretend to return in some September to see the mountains red colored .

Owner's reply: Hi Joao Great Pics!!! Thanks Jose
