The hotel and rooms are opulent and comfortable. We had a balcony overlooking the river and church where we spent ages just taking in the wonderful view. The staff couldn't have been better. The range of food at breakfast was excellent and out Michelin meal was a wonderful treat. Would love to return.

The service in this hotel was faultless, We asked before we came for tea and coffee making making facilities. They had a kettle waiting for us when we arrived with a note on it saying we had reserved it. They looked after our luggage until the room was ready. They even provided us with a free glass of wine whilst...

We had a lovely 4 night stay at the Casa da Calcada which include a 3 course meal at the Largo do Paço Restaurant. The hotel was excellent, comfortable room, staff were friendly and very attentive and the location was perfect being on the edge of the town centre.

We have just returned from a four night stay and to help would record the following; the hotel itself is excellent, large but still small enough to retain a sense of intimacy and all staff were most helpful. The Michelin starred restaurant serves clever and inventive food and literally outside the hotel front gate you step onto the bridge over...

We loved our stay at Casa da Calçada. A really wonderful experience all around. Beautiful setting, beautifully decorated rooms and common areas, excellent dining and the staff could not have been more gracious, welcoming and helpful. For us, this was the perfect respite and counterpoint to our stay in Porto. We used the Casa da Calçada in Amarante a base...

This hotel achieves what appears to be an apparently effortless standard of perfection. It is not often that you can have a hotel stay without even one minor niggle but Casa da Calcada managed this. The views over the river Tamega to the town are idyllic and you can just walk out of the hotel to the restaurants and bars...

This was a week of relaxation from start to finish, lovely hotel and very friendly staff. The welcome started the week off well, and it just got better from there.

Stayed here for 5 nights in October. The hotel is in a beautiful setting overlooking the river in Amarante. Lovely old mansion, not too many guest rooms and with a really special ambience.

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
