The Solar intends to distance itself from being just another "accommodation" by the Douro River. The unique space of great historical value, the privileged view to the jagged slopes of Castelo de Paiva, are the perfect stage for new experiences, new encounters and reunions. Come and live the Douro.

“living in a unique setting and in full harmony with nature is a gift that I share with all my heart.”

Sílvia Mota, Diretora Geral


The Region

“A virginal universe, as if it had just been born, and already eternal for the harmony, for the serenity, for the silence that not even the river dares to break, now disappearing furtively behind the mountains, now amazed in the background reflecting the your own amazement ...”

Miguel torga in “Diário XXI”

The grandeur of the Douro can never be entirely conveyed by mere words, being that this is certainly the most beautiful region in Portugal. With a unique nature and biodiversity that accompany the meandering of the Douro River through these beautiful slopes.

The beauty of the Douro is not only transmitted by the beauty of its landscapes, but also by the beauty of its people, gastronomy and customs. One of the oldest and most beautiful wine regions in Europe and the birthplace of Port wine.

Um novo dia vem nascendo.
Um novo sol já vai raiar.
Parece a vida, rompendo em luz,
E que nos convida a amar.
