Retreat location

The Douro resembles a palette that changes colour depending on the season of the year, painted by the leaves and flowers of various crops. In the spring, when the almond trees bloom, white and violet blend with the green of the leaves. In the autumn, the hills and valleys are covered by a blanket of brown and copper.

The green of the vegetation contrasts with the brightness of the waters of several rivers and streams that meander through the region. The river Sabor traverses wild areas without human intervention; the river Côa encloses millennial treasures and the rivers Corgo, Távora, and Varus embrace the heart of wine region. These are just a few of the dozens of tributaries of the Douro that coexist in close harmony.

In Mesão Frio, the feeling that you are in a historical and medieval setting is permanent. The rich architectural heritage is evident, highlighted by its majestic buildings in a land of pristine cobbled streets and squares that appear frozen in time. Besides the manor houses you can find in all parishes, churches tower over slender sculptures, sacred furnishings and vestments, as well as over chapels, niches, fountains and other works of art.

The deep depressions and valleys facing the Douro, with their almost uniforms terraces, are the definitive trait of its grandeur and serve as the perfect setting for lovers of nature in its purest form. All this is topped off by the genuine hospitality of its locals.
