Fantastic experience in Amarante about 35 miles East of Porto on the A4. The hotel is a 5* establishment and lived up to it's billing. The staff could not have been more helpful. We were greeted on a very hot day with a glass of cold sparkling wine, Having then rested for about an hour we had afternoon tea on... More

After a long day spent travelling, we tried to get food for our family after checking in in the afternoon. Restaurant was, of couse, closed, so we headed to the hotel bar. We were encountered by the grumpiest, unfriendliest, borderline aggressive barman, whose behavior made it very clear that we were not welcome.Needless to say, we were the only customers.... More

Initial impression with this "5-star" hotel is less than stellar. Was told a river view would be provided, but was given a handicap accessible room with a view of the parking lot (so much for a romantic weekend!). My request for an upgrade was immediately denied. For a hotel of this caliber, I would expect staff to be a bit... More

My friend and I stayed at this delightful Relais & Chateaux for 5 nights towards the end of August. This really is a lovely quaint and charming hotel and absolutely perfect if you want an idyllic setting to relax in, away from a big commercial chain. The pool and garden area is lovely and relaxing, with a nice pool side... More

Staff very helpful in every way. The only slight criticism is that for a stay of 5 days which were very hot we would have expected the bed linen to be changed. All other linen immaculate There is a nice outdoor swimming pool. The whole hotel is immaculately maintained. The hotel is a good base to tour areas- a must... More

If you want to rest well, this is the place to stay. This lovely Relais & Châteaux is located in the small town of Amarante.

This 16th century hotel has lots of character, yet still very comfortable. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The view from our room, and from the terrace, was beautiful. The decor and art throughout the hotel give it a unique feeling that really makes a difference.

Beautiful old building overlooking the river. Our car was parked for us when we arrived and brought to the front of the hotel when we wanted to go out traveling. The gate at the entrance to the hotel is very tight, so be careful when entering. We did not try the hotel restaurant on this occasion for lunch or dinner,... More

We stayed five nights at this hotel as we chose Amarante to be our base to explore Douro and other North of Portugal attractions. The hotel's location is wonderful right across the century old bridge and church in the center of town. The room is very comfortable and we felt at home. Breakfast is great and the service is impeccable.... More

This hotel is located in the heart of the town just across the bridge that leads to the Sao Gonçalo monastery. This is a Relais and Chateaux hotel so not very cheap but worth every penny we spent. It has a nice swimming pool which comes handy in the supper hot summer in Portugal. The bedroom is super comfortable. Breakfast... 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
