Conveniently located for exploring the the Duoro valley and Porto in the pleasant town of Amarante which has some good local restaurants as well as the hotel's fine dinning option. The rooms were spacious and comfortable - go for a river view if possible. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful particularly in suggesting day trips and things to see in... More

The hotel itself is beautiful. The lobby is super cosy as well as the nice and beautiful decor rooms. Everywhere you look is so beautiful. The hotel is located in a historic neighborhood. The Michelin award hotel restaurant is worth a visit. Be careful the hotel gate is very tight you'lol need a amazing drive skill :)

Thank you very much for your feedback! We are really happy to know that you love so much our hotel and our restaurant. About the main gate to the house, is true that being and old manor house, is doesn't have an easy access. On the back of the hotel, through our vineyard, you have another gate, much wider that...

Arrived in Porto and made our way to our first destination today, Amarante. We are staying at Casa da Calçada Chateaux, a beautiful historic building in a charming old city. It is kind of silly to think that I paid more to stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Alberta last week. I really think we must have the most... More

Booked this completely at random, and am so glad we found it. The hotel is in a beautiful position right on the river and overlooks the churches and square in Amarante. The view from the terrace is stunning and the whole place is very relaxing. The pool also has lovely views and a small bar area where you can order... More

We tried to stay at the hotel in Sept 2013 but due to a travel agent double booking fiasco we never managed to.

An amazing place with an even more amazing restaurant. A most agreable stay made better by the friendly and very helpful personnel. Somewhere to revisit. The rooms were spacious, the swiming pool very nice. No words can describe the wonderful restaurant

We stayed at Casa da Calcada for five nights while vising the Douro Valley and Porto in May 2015. We had a lovely suite overlooking the town of Amarante and river. Our suite was spacious especially the dressing room/closet and bathroom. The views from our suite were beautiful of the old bridge, cathedral, river, etc. The staff were all exceptional... More

Stayed at Casa da Calcada for one night on a road trip holiday in Portugal. The hotel is ideally situated in the old town across a single lane bridge from the Monastery. We had requested a river view and on arrival were told we had been upgraded so we had a gorgeous large room with a balcony over the river... More

After 3 weeks of touring Spain and Portugal we chose to stay at Casa da Calcada as our last stop. It was the best decision. After the hussle and bustle of staying in medium to large cities, arriving in the quaint town of Amarante was the perfect way to end our trip. The hotel itself is striking and the staff... More

This is truly a lovely hotel. We stayed in one of the larger rooms overlooking the river. We had a large balcony, a walk in closet, and a huge bathroom. Finding the hotel was a bit of a challenge, but once there we enjoyed the serene pool with bar service, our lovely balcony, and awesome nearby restaurants.
