"Set in a dramatic gorge" between bustling Porto and the Douro Valley countryside, Amarante is known for its "18th-century bridge over the Tâmega" (The Guardian). Spend three nights at the town's 5-star Relais & Chateaux hotel for £159 per person with this offer from Luxury Holiday Collection, saving up to 22% on competitors' rates.  

What's included
Return flights from London Gatwick or London Stansted, with hand luggage and three nights in an Executive Room at Relais & Chateaux Casa de Calçada with daily breakfast.

Select dates from 3 November-12 December. It's an extra £40 per person to stay from 16 September-31 October. See Luxury Holiday Collection's website for all dates and airports.

Hotel details
The boutique hotel is between Porto (Portugal's second city) and the remote Douro Valley, where port wine is produced. The 16th-century manor house has a spa, a bar overlooking the Casa da Calçada vineyards and two swimming pools with views of the River Tâmega. There's also free Wi-Fi. 97% of the hotel's TripAdvisor reviews are Excellent or Very good.

About the area
You can hire a bike from the hotel to explore Amarante and the surrounding gardens and farm. In Porto, you can wander the cobbled streets in the city centre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And don't miss a trip to the Alto Douro wine region, where grapes are still crushed by foot.
