At Casa da Calçada we work to receive all our guests with all the comfort and security.
We are here waiting for you.
Between Porto and the Douro Valley there is a city waiting to be discovered and a palace waiting for you. Amarante, a romantic town with Baroque traits, knows how to welcome and marvel those who visit. The Tâmega River reflects the opulent green of the mountain range and mirrors the region’s cultural and environmental heritage.
Located in Amarante, Casa da Calçada has an elegant terrace facing the city. The reopening of this space, and the hotel, is scheduled for the end of April. The two restaurants have outdoor terraces.
The new tasting menus at Largo do Paço, a Michelin star restaurant installed at Casa da Calçada Relais & Chateaux, in Amarante, have been available since the beginning of July. With “fresh and authentic flavors”, as read in a statement, the dishes developed by the team led by Tiago Bonito reinforce “its identity as an original and contemporary cuisine, with great connection to traditional Portuguese cuisine”.
We are a month from the beginning of summer, but we just feel like ice cream and recipes that we can make with them. Yes, because taking out of the box for a bowl and eating with a spoon is a thing of the past. Chef Tiago Bonito, from the Michelin-star restaurant Largo do Paço, in Amarante, created this chocolate mousse with an author’s touch.
“In 2017, Tiago Bonito took over the kitchen of Largo do Paço in Amarante. For now, everything has gone for the best for the chef who, despite his Coimbra roots, spent much of his professional life in the south; in the Algarve. It is no coincidence then that he has a special passion for the sea and for everything it provides.”
“Desde o cocktail de boas vindas ao serviço de quartos, tudo foi maravilhoso! O staff é extremamente simpático e prestável. Fomos festejar um aniversário e o hotel proporcionou-nos várias surpresas entre as quais uma garrafa de espumante e um upgrade ao quarto com vista privilegiada. A limpeza e o conforto não podiam ser melhores. Cinco estrelas mesmo!”
“Quarto grande, cama confortável, banheiro bom e limpo! O café da manhã é demais assim como o restaurante. Os funcionários são simpáticos e atenciosos. Hotel bem localizado!”
“E chegamos a casa… de repente pertencemos à realeza e entramos num conto irreal, onde somos tão bem recebidos que quase nos sentimos a levitar… A Casa da Calçada será sempre a nossa casa em Amarante..”
