Your holiday will begin in Porto, Portugal's second largest-city and the birthplace of port. The 4-star Porto Royal Bridges is centrally located, less than 10 minutes' walk from the cathedral and the National Theatre. The iconic Dom Luís I Bridge and the riverside Cais da Ribeira area are a 15-minute walk away.
The property was decorated by well-known Portuguese interior designer Nini Andrade Silva with materials that reflect Porto's winemaking heritage and famous iron bridges. It has a bar and a restaurant serving local dishes.
You'll then transfer to Vidago, close to the Douro Valley and 30 minutes' drive from the Spanish border. The luxurious Vidago Palace was commissioned by King Carlos I and opened in 1910. It sits in a 250-acre park, with magnolia and century-old sequoia trees, caves, a lake and four mineral springs. Luxurious touches include its grand staircase, mosaic floors, gilded ceilings, hand-painted silk wallpaper and Venetian chandeliers.
Dinner is served in the Grand Ballroom. The menu was designed by Portugal's "MasterChef" judge Rui Paula. A breakfast buffet of local specialities is served in the marble-floored Winter Garden.
The white marble-clad spa uses the area's mineral-rich thermal waters in its treatments (additional charges apply). There are two swimming pools, a Turkish bath, a sauna and a gym.
