Six Senses Douro Valley Experiences

Historical Gardens Series

Our gardens and forest have been awarded a quality seal by the Portuguese Association of Historical Gardens (AJH) and we're delighted to be on the Historic Douro Gardens Route, offering garden tours through our own parkland and helping to preserve the unique heritage of other stately homes within the association.

The listed park is a highly distinctive element of the Douro landscape, mostly dominated by vineyards. Tree species include lindens, oaks, strawberry trees, acers, cedars, exotic palms and firs. The forest is a rare example of the classic 19th-century forest gardens popular at the time. While preserving the spirit and fundamentals of the forest, which included 10 follies, a waterfall and a pond, we have added secret rest and picnic spots for people to enjoy. The organic garden is a scented garden full of delicious herbs and colorful edible flowers, with we use to supply the kitchen, bar and spa. At the end of your tour, stop off at the Earth Lab to taste a delicious herbal tea brewed on the spot!

Casa de Mateus represents the epitome of baroque architecture and is an example of a centuries-old unbroken family legacy passed down from a bygone era. As our guests, you are exclusively invited to visit the palace and classified historical gardens, with the option to enjoy a traditional lunch or dinner in the picturesque and authentic old family kitchen or spectacular dining hall.

Santar Vila Jardim gardens are a unique project in Portugal. Explore the gardens of different manor houses in the Santar village and end your tour with a wine tasting (of course!) followed by a picnic lunch specially prepared by our Six Senses team, held on the veranda of the Casa de Santar e Magalhães overlooking the gardens.

All the proceeds go to Six Senses Douro Valley Sustainability Fund.
