One of Pipadouro’s most coveted programs is the “Vintage bed & breakfast“. This is the ideal program for those looking for a distinguished place to sleep, have a good breakfast and, at the same time, not giving up the comfort and quality of a luxury stay.

Sleeping aboard the Friendship I, offers you a unique opportunity to fully enjoy the ship from the moment of embarkation, with late check-in, starting by savoring a delicious welcome cocktail, a Port Tonic accompanied by toasted Douro almonds, while you enjoy an hour of navigation through the tranquil waters of the river and contemplate the unique and unmatched beauty of the landscapes of the vineyards of the Douro wine region, which at sunset are painted with vibrant colors.

It is followed by the possibility of having dinner by candlelight, already with the boat docked, and being able to appreciate on one side the picturesque landscape of the town of Pinhão and on the other the imposing slopes, full of terraced vineyards built by the hands of the men who once lived in these lands, the perfect place to cultivate wines of unmistakable quality. And then, you just have to let yourself go and sit back and savor a Port Wine under the starry sky.

The suite that awaits you is totally renovated, with a comfortable king size bed, turn down service and always with a treat waiting for you, prepared with all the care by the dedicated crew to make your stay perfect.

Sleeping aboard a boat, full of history, on a unique river in a region that is a Unesco World Heritage Site, is undoubtedly an experience not to be missed.

And as it could not be any other way, this program ends with a delicious English breakfast, served during an hour of navigation and where you will be delighted to glimpse the same landscapes with another coloration, and in that moment you will understand the magic of the Douro, which can be seen dozens of times and you will always find different details, different colors and a landscape that gives you serenity and an unmistakable connection to nature.
