For those who need a day away....
relaxation, nature & fun!

Come alone, with your friends, or take the whole family. You can go wherever and do whatever you want. You can participate in the activities, but you can also just slip away in the nature, sleep in a hammock, meditate on the Mirante, pick fruits and swim in the pool. The stunning view over the Douro Valley and the 4 hectares of fruit gardens and forest are all yours for a day!
