Douro Riverside Lodges river porto yacht chalet boat bungalow cabin charter rent hire

Our little corner in the world

Located on the banks of Douro River, Douro Riverside Lodges features spacious Lodges and a marina, where guests can charter either motor or sailing yachts (with or without skipper). The property offers free use of kayaks and dingies to all its guests.
The unique guest units offer a dining area, a kitchenette and a stunning view of Douro’s landscape. A seating area with a sofa bed is included in all accommodation. Free WiFi is available and guests enjoy free onsite private parking.
Guests of the Douro Riverside Lodges can relax at the seasonal outdoor pool or enjoy water sports on the river, including sailing and canoeing. Supervised yacht cruises are also available to guests. The surrounding area has several trails that are ideal for hiking and Mountain Bike.
Douro Riverside Lodges is 1 km from Ferradosa railway station, which has direct trains to Porto.

Wilderness, away from it all…

You can spent a good deal of time just chilling out and enjoying the peace and quiet. The railway line is on the other side of the river and a few trains a day – plus the occasional river tour boats – pass by. These don’t disturb the peace of the area, rather, they enhance it by underlining just how quiet it is!

There are three units – a small house and two chalets. There is one good restaurant close to the marina. Some great restaurants are reachable by boat. Don’t expect entertainment and nightlife but do expect to relax and enjoy the remoteness and the peace.

“Vineyards, hiking, sailing and relaxation”

Our place is specially focus on Sailing Holidays holidays and cruises, but the area is also very good for hiking in the surrounding hills and vineyards. The views are spectacular and the hiking trails well marked. The property is easily reached by a lovely train journey along the Douro. And train tours are also possible. A must is the day boat trip to a lovely local restaurant for a typical local lunch “fish soup”.
