Casa do Visconde de Chanceleiros Review

This 18th-century manor house has lovely gardens bursting with flowers, a swimming pool with views of the Douro River valley, plus tennis courts, sauna, and whirlpool. The friendly German owners present guests with a glass of port wine on arrival. This is one of the rare hotels in the Douro Valley with activities for children: a playground, games room, and ping-pong. Mountain-biking, hiking, and boat trips can be arranged. Full- and half-board are available on request. Meals can be taken inside the stone-and-wood–paneled dining room, or alfresco on the sprawling terrace.
