The Douro water way starts on the Atlantic coast at Porto and comprises five connected lakes that extend for 200 km to the border with Spain. You can explore it with 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. Along the river there are plenty of free public piers with charming small restaurants, hotels and shops nearby. Inland waters are perfect for a first charter experience. The climate is pleasant From April to October 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. At the marina our guests also can find: small sail boats, kayaks, bicycles, barbecue, even a swimming pool. Give it a go. It's great fun, great value for money and thoroughly enjoyable!

About the neighbourhood
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 ...
