Located on the river that gives life to the best wine in the world, Pestana Palácio do Freixo rises serene, between French-style gardens and granite stonework, in a contrasting and balanced dialogue that welcomes you with care and attention.
Aside from architecture and the extraordinary recovery work that was developed here, it is the Freixo Palace stands out. Go to the imposing Harmonia Mills, where you will find rooms that will allow you to truly rest. Here you will find a more secluded, peaceful and quiet space, in golden and brown tones, with a predominance of dark woods and a classic décor.
In the rooms, you will have a modern and contemporary feel without losing an ounce of luxury or comfort. It's as if your room was the extension of the Douro River, which you can see from your window. The huge and comfortable beds, the refined and sophisticated bathrooms and the large, inviting space will make you want to extend your stay.
When you go down the stairs to explore the spa area, your desire to stay will only increase. The blue and gold of the indoor pool invites you to make the most of the sauna, Turkish bath and Jacuzzi.
Visit the pontoon and the panoramic pool in the evening, when the Golden River tone illuminates the austere gray granite and imparts a magical dimension to your stay. At the Pestana Palácio do Freixo, perfection is not a wish, but a permanent state. Your days here will become an unforgettable and extraordinary experience.
Classically luxurious and structurally unique, consisting of an 18th century palace, and a 19th century building , the Pestana Palácio do Freixo will welcome you and make you feel part of a privileged and very sophisticated existence.
Indulge in the contrast between the Moroccan-inspired rooms with the outside. This idiosyncrasy will accompany you throughout your stay, as there are many areas originally created by the great master of Italian Baroque architecture Nicolau Nasoni for the first owner, D. Jerónimo de Távora e Noronha; and many others were restored to meet the tastes of the second owner, António Afonso Velado, whose decoration preferences were more exuberant and exotic.
The environments enrich your experience even more, as it can change from one room decorated with frescoes and stucco work of Italian influence to a fantasy more elementary than architectural. From the magnificent opulence of the gilded Hall of Mirrors to the contained elegance of the breakfast room; where the gray and white tones of the frescos enlighten the day and the warm tones of the wine and vineyard warm the night; allow yourself the indulgence of palatial living with the opulence of yesteryear with all the comfort and good taste of a luxurious stay.
