We stayed in this lovely old hotel for 3 nights in May at the beginning of our European holiday and it was the ideal place to stay after long flights from home. The hotel is very comfortable and up to date but provides the special environment that comes from having catered for guests over many years. The staff were unfailingly friendly and were able to give us detailed advice on what to do and how to do it. We were there during a spell of unseasonably cold weather so were unable to fully appreciate the swimming pool and the lovely terrace looking over the river to the old town.
We found this a good place for visiting Porto as there is an excellent bus service into the city centre only a 15 minute walk from the hotel.
Altogether a hotel that provided us with a great start to our holiday and now that we are home, a very pleasant memory.
- 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
