Book your flight arriving to Oporto Airport (OPO) in Northern Portugal. You can get here easily by making a pit stop in Lisbon, Madrid or Frankfurt/Main.
From there on, we recommend renting a car, which offers you flexibility and freedom to discover our valley. If renting a car is not an option, you can also take a taxi (Prices vary, but a one-way-trip to the Douro Valley will cost you about 120,- Euros) or go by train (it is however rather infrequent, and won’t get you to every Quinta).
It’s also very convenient to start from Porto and go straight on the highway to Vila Nova de Foz Côa (2 hours and 15 minutes), if you want to start your visit at Quinta do Vale Meão or Casa do Rio (Quinta do Vallado). Our tip? Stay at least 2 and ½ days, so you can have a relaxed journey, visit two Quintas per day and truly grasp the beauty of our Valley along the Douro river.
