Casa de Calçada Relais & Châteaux, in the historic region of Amarante between Porto and the Douro Valley, is a grand 16th-century manor house with its own vineyard.
Set on the Tâmega River in northern Portugal, Amarante is home to a 16th-century monastery, a medieval bridge and a number of top-notch restaurants. The vibrant city of Porto is less than an hour's drive away, and the hotel is a good base for exploring the nearby Douro Valley wine region.
Set on lush grounds, the country retreat features an outdoor pool and a private vineyard that produces Portugal's signature Vinho Verde wine. The fine-dining restaurant serves local cuisine and meals can be enjoyed on the terrace or in the garden. All guests receive complimentary petits fours, made by the in-house chef. There is an 18-hole golf course 10 minutes' drive away.
The rooms are decorated with antique furniture and overlook the grounds or the Tâmega River. All feature marble bathrooms and flat-screen TVs. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel.
