Casa do Rio

Nestled among terraced vineyards on the banks of the upper Douro River you will find Casa do Rio, nearly camouflaged by the design’s union with the surrounding landscape.

The eight-room hotel was created in harmony with the surrounding area, paying homage to the silence and solitude that it is known for to offer a tranquil escape. Comfortable rooms decorated in whites and neutrals look out onto the placid river, and common areas give the feeling of a rustic, yet contemporary, country home.



Few travelers make it to this point of the Douro, and many of the patrons are locals looking to escape the cities. Luxury yet not too upscale, Casa do Rio is made for slowing down and letting your hair down with lazy mornings by the infinity pool, leisurely wine tastings, long meals of local dishes and cruises down the Douro River.



Don’t leave Casa do Rio without: wine. The vineyard and its sister property, Quinta do Vallado, make excellent wines.
