Chapter Five, The Fall Getaway


 It's that time of the year: rentrée has hit our routine and we are, now, ready to take a rest. Maybe a large weekend? We think the time is now and we picked 3 amazing places we think is perfect to spend a few days.

As soon as you arrive to Douro 41 you feel rested. But go in, anyway: the suites are amazing and the hotel staff will make feel at home. And what a home: waking up to a panoramic Douro view is something to live for!

Feeling to spend a few days with sea view? Let's head south and meet Plaza 18, a 19th. century manor house renovated by British interior designer award-winning Nicky Dobreethat.

It will make you feel at a private house (instead of an hotel room), and you feel inspired while surrounded by art, design and history. And, of course, views to die for: mountains and North Africa on clear days or sip tea in the living room.

 Waking up in Dá Licença, and the thirteen thousand olive trees that surround this amazing Boutique Hotel, it's living a dream where architecture, design and nature make the perfect fusion.

You can enjoy and check the Art Gallery available, the exclusive meals (with seasonal food only) and, of course, walk around Extremoz' hot spots (and, yes, there are a few).
