Sat amongst the port lodges overlooking the historic coastal city of Porto and the Douro River, The Yeatman is in the perfect location for port lovers and is only a short walk to Porto’s Old Town via the Dom Luís Bridge.

Food and wine are essential parts of the Yeatman experience. Book a table at the Gastronomic restaurant, which has an imaginative menu showcasing the traditional flavours of Portugal, which are interpreted and presented with contemporary flair. Perfect for any oenophile, you can participate in one of the regular wine-tasting classes and be introduced to a wide range of tempting vintages from the Porto region.


Try out the unique Vinotherapie treatments on offer at the Caudalie Spa. Using antioxidant-rich ingredients straight from the vineyards, the spa offers a range of revitalising treatments, from barrel bath immersions to facials and massages.

Afterwards, enjoy a swim in the outdoor infinity pool or the indoor pool, which has panoramic windows from which to enjoy the views.
