Vidago Palace

Parque de Vidago
Trás-os-Montes, Portugal

TEL: (800) 223-6800
Northern Portugal’s dramatic Douro Valley wine region now has a resort to match. Vidago Palace, an hour’s drive northeast of historic Porto, is located in a Belle Époque mansion with 70 guest rooms decorated with Portuguese embellishments (hand-loomed rugs; traditional cement tiles). Vidago is an ancient spa town with famed natural springs, and the resort takes advantage of those mineral-rich waters in its 21,000-square-foot spa, designed by Pritzker Prize–winning architect Álvaro Siza.

Room to Book:

Pockets of country warmth are tucked away in the Belle Epoque palace: Privilege rooms 219 and 319 boast French doors and cast-iron balconies overlooking the lush sycamores, strawberry trees, and mexican cypresses of Parque de Vidago.

Insider Tip:

When you're done taking the thermal waters, hire a guide and explore the Roman gold mines of Tresminas Archaeological Park, or stroll the bridge that spans the Rio Tâmega, in nearby Chaves.
