OPTIONAL EXTRAS AVAILABLE FOR THIS PACKAGE

Hotel & Spa

The Vidago Palace Hotel reopened in 2010 following major refurbishment work. The splendour and sophistication of the past have been preserved intact, along with bygone standards of service and hospitality.

Deeply rooted in the collective memory of several generations, the hotel harks back to the way life was lived in the great aristocratic households of the Belle Époque. The best craftsmen in each speciality were taken on to restore to the hotel to the brilliance and aura it possessed from old times.

A duo of Portuguese architects – José Pedro Lopes Vieira and Diogo Rosa Lã – masterminded decoration of the interior spaces, while the Thermal SPA and the Club House are the work of the highly regarded architect Álvaro Siza Vieira.

Tour Location

PORTO & THE NORTH
The North of Portugal has eleven courses located in fabulous natural settings, each built to take advantage of the natural surroundings and all presenting breath taking landscapes. Add the quality of the golf courses to the fabulous local gastronomy and wines, and you will easily understand that you are in for a unique and complete experience. The city of Porto was built along the hills overlooking the Douro river estuary, and its historical centre was awarded World Heritage status by UNESCO in 1996. It has been continuously inhabited since at least the 4th Century, when the Romans referred to it as Portus Calle. Porto has a semi-Mediterranean climate, although it’s strongly affected by the Atlantic Ocean, which makes it cooler than other Mediterranean cities. Summers are warm and the winters mild although temperatures can drop below 0ºC. The city has a pleasant mixture of modern and medieval architecture built into its hilly streets, there are even buildings built into the cliff face that overlook the river!!
