In the Porto Antigo Bay, on the left bank of the Douro, next to the mouth of the Bestança River, is the Hotel Porto Antigo. This hotel is the result of the restoration of a manor house that belonged to the African explorer Alexandre Serpa Pinto.
The hotel has 23 comfortable and cozy rooms and a magnificent view over the reservoir of the Carrapatelo Dam, which is only a few meters down the road. It also has a classic restaurant, a beautiful terrace on the river and a river marina with capacity for 20 boats.
For those who appreciate nature and sport, the hotel offers various nautical equipment such as boats and jet skis, kayaks and pedalos, or even bike rides. During the stay the Hotel suggests cruises in the Douro, sailboat tours, train travel, walking tours and visits to farms with tasting events.
