About the neighbourhood
The Casa do Douro Castedo is located in a central area, very close to the most exciting places in the Douro Wine Region, as Alijó, Favaios, Tua, Pinhão, Provesende but also S.João da Pesqueira, Lamego and Vila Real, all within 1 hour away. You can also find the Douro River approx. 5 kilometers away.
Getting around
For guest house Castedo Douro, the best and most practical way to know the Douro Wine Region is making a tour conducted by me, with seven scheduled routes, but can also make a tour designed to your needs. Are car rides, very intimate and personal, made and devised by me, where you can visit the sites, monuments, museums of major interest in the region, fleeing the tourist circuit installed, looking just tradition, authenticity of the Douro Wine Region, World Heritage UNESCO. You can also make a private boat trip on the Douro River, enjoy the delicious traditional cuisine of the region, and to make tasting and wine tasting of Porto and the Douro
