This seafront neighbourhood is where the Douro River meets the Atlantic Ocean. An exclusive area located just outside Porto, Foz do Douro has wonderful landscapes. From the lighthouse to the seaside promenade the beautiful terraces by the beach made the perfect scenario for a cocktail with friends, after a day full of classes. Praia da Luz and Homem do Leme are two of the best places to relax. This sophisticated suburb is a charming neighbourhood full of nice restaurants and local shops. By taking the number 1 you can reach the city centre while enjoying the riverside views all the way through. This is probably not the fastest way of reaching it, but it is definitely the most beautiful.
This neighbourhood is the choice for many upper-end families,
