I discovered this fantastic hotel last year when I have been very impressed by the beautiful property, the fabulous cuisine (rank FIRST in the “European 50 Best restaurants” list and worthed the detour just for that) and most impressively, such a kind an professional team. I have been dreaming for a year to come back but I was also afraid... More

Spent five days in this wonderful hotel. The staff are exemplary, they park your car for you, assist in arranging golf trip,very helpful. The food is amazing and we had a lovely room overlooking the river. The only bad comment was the racket coming from a municipal concert two nights which was out with the hotel's influence. This is a... More

Thank you very much for your comment about your stay with us. We are glad to know that you enjoyed it so much. Concerning the outside noise, unfortunately during the summer period, there are some festivities around the area(Amarante) that aren't controllable by us. This is something that we are trying to resolve but it takes some time. This happens... More

My fiancée and I stayed at the Casa da Calcada for five nights in July 2014. We booked a deal through Fleetway Travel and the whole experience was excellent. The service was warm and welcoming. The hotel itself is a beautiful building in the middle of the charming town of Amarante. We lazed at the lovely pool for two days... More

Casa de Calcada in Amarante was the first hotel we stayed in as part of a fortnights tour of Northern Portugal and Northern Spain. It was 22.45 when we reached Amarante but we could not find the hotel as there were no signs and made the BIG mistake of crossing over the one way Bridge and turned left partly into... More

Re-submitted Review - This was supposed to be a special treat on our road trip around Northern Portugal. We were looking forward to a meal in the restaurant, sitting in the gardens and swimming in the pool after a lot of sightseeing. We booked the hotel several months ago – in February 2014. We had already set off from the... More

We decided to visit northern Portugal for 4 days before heading down to Lisbon/Cascais. I decided on staying in Amarante due to its proximity to Porto and also the Douro valley. The Casa Calcada being a Relaix and Chateaux hotel seemed a good choice as the weather can be variable and we wanted somewhere to stay that would be comfortable... More

We loved the town. Our room (the best in the hotel) had a gorgeous view of the square and the river. The room itself was not out taste (we are more modern seekers) - but it was certainly spacious and clean and regal. The staff were very helpful!! If you have trouble squeezing your car into the small gate, they... More

We stayed in this hotel for 1 night on 5 June 2014 with 9 friends on our way to Douro Valley. Our room was on the third floor (room 305) with river view.

This hotel is a gem. Tucked away in Amarante in the Tras-Os-Monte region of Northern Portugal. The thirty room hotel, situated by the town's Medieval bridge overlooking the Tamega river, has been thoughtfully refurbished to reflect the history of the house but provide guests with a very comfortable billet! Staff are knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and efficient. Service is discreet and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The lemon yellow façades of the Casa da Calçada are a clue to the sunny stay that awaits you at this hotel. Situated at the heart of the town of Amarante, between the bustle of Porto and the sun‑dappled countryside of the Douro Valley (both less than 40 minutes away), this hotel with its golden interiors is a favourite with those who love beauty, golfers (there is a splendid 18-hole course nearby) and fans of great food and wines. The Largo do Paco Restaurant, awarded with the famous 1* Michelin Restaurant, is waiting for you to show you the high Portuguese gatronomy. The proposed visit to the region’s best wine “quintas” will ensure that you never forget the differences between Tawny, Ruby, White or Vintage Port. ... more   less
