Custom travel to Portugal
The best way to custom travel to Portugal, in private, down to the smallest possible detail. The city of Porto and its river, the Douro, are famed for their more than ten centuries of urban landscape, history, delicious wines, and cuisine not to be had in any other part of the world.
Perched on a hill at the mouth of the that river, and looking out with curiosity to the Atlantic Ocean, Porto is a city of extraordinary light, notably welcoming, and as intoxicating as its signature vintages. The River Douro flows between hills given over to cultivating wine grapes and Porto’s old town crawls up and down the banks via narrow, raffish lanes at whose summits there are always breathtaking vistas of the beloved river and city.

Recommended travel time: Spring
The best time to travel to Porto is in spring. There’s barely a cloud in the sky, the sun shines almost all day, and temperatures couldn’t be nicer.
Porto’s climate is humid but temperate. In general, summers are sunny and hot. Summer storms are quite common and the rain might fall for several days. Winters are not unduly cold but you also get prolonged precipitations. In October temperatures are pleasant…but heavy rains can fall at any time.
Have dinner at Villa d’Allen in Porto, a stately nineteenth-century mansion that now opens its doors to special guests —like you—who discover the family history that’s still in place. You’ll fall in love with romantic, French-style gardens, lakes, channels and waterfalls. Exotic and ornamental plants hearken back to the era when Porto was a grand European cultural capital.
