‘AND HENCE WAS FORGED A LOVE FOR PORT – AND, BY EXTENSION, PORTUGAL – WHICH CONTINUED

THROUGH MY MID-TWENTIES AND THIRTIES.

WHILE I’M NOT A CONNOISSEUR BY ANY MEANS, I HAVE BEEN MEANING TO VISIT PORTO SINCE MY

TEENS TO DELVE DEEPER INTO THAT PASSION.’

TRAVEL TIPS H O TEL I N FA N TE SA G R ES A modern hotel in the centre of Porto. Ideally located close to a bevy of favourite hotspots. The Vogue Café within the hotel is a city favourite for a stylish and contemporary take on food, wine and cocktails. www.infantesagres.com https://voguecafe.pt TA B ER N A D O S MER C A D O R ES One of the most charming restaurants in the world, I imagine, especially If you like fish prepared the typical Porto/Portuguese way, Don’t miss the local speciality: sea bream encrusted with salt and flamed open with a generous wash of vodka. This petite eatery barely seats 15, so book in advance or be prepared to wait. www.facebook.com/tabernamercadores TH E V I N TA G E H O U SE A bit outside Porto, the Vintage House in Portimao is a five-star luxury hotel overlooking the Douro river. Get there by boat and return by train to experience the magic of the Douro Valley. We suggest a meal in the award-winning Rabelo Restaurant complete with brilliant wine pairings and the most wonderfully shaped decanters. www.vintagehousehotel.com
