After a slightly late arrival at 10pm, we arrived at what proved to be an oasis of elegance and tranquility. Beautifully appointed rooms, helpful staff and a much needed welcome glass of their own produced Vinho Verde! We then spent 4 lovely days in and around the town of Amarante (not a huge amount to do there), but we were into 4 days of relaxing by their very quiet pool area - they could have had a slightly better service here but we suspect that most people go out for the day visiting the nearby Douro Valley.
The breakfast was excellent - good choice of fresh fruit, breads and some hot breakfast for those who enjoy more of a "British" breakfast while away!
We had dinner one night - and chose from their fixed menu which including a bottle of wine was 89 Euros - this was very reasonable considering you are staying at a Relais & Chateaux hotel. The food was magnificent - we could not fault it in any way. With only a few people dining on their outdoor terrace the service we received was first class.
Rooms are large, very tastefully furnished and extremely comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and would not hesitate to go back in the future.
- 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
