This is a nice, short walk from our apartment, and because it's ever so slightly tucked behind other buildings seems to be a little quieter than other Port Cellars. We'll see when tourists season kicks in in June. The tour is relatively short, but provides...More

We didn’t do a port tour but just a tasting. Beautiful old building that was gorgeous. Our Ports were quickly delivered and was about 15 euros each. Delicious!

Hi Steve, I remember there is parking a place right in front Croft Port wine Lodge. But it's a little difficult to find the place. We got there by taxi.
