It could not be more conveniently located to explore this compact village by foot. Just beyond its gates a river front lane houses fine restaurants and pastry and regional crafts shops. Just across the small, ancient bridge you’ll find an attractive green recreational space and an elegant square housing the main building in the village, the Saint Gonçalo Church and Convent.

Wander a few steps further and you’ll find that despite its fairy tale looks, Amarante is an authentic, working village, with a bustling market and local restaurants serving traditional regional fare.  

Amarante is also perfectly placed to serve as a base to discover the stunning surrounding area. In the vinho verde region and bordering on the Douro, it allows you to experience two wines unique to Portugal and which, despite the proximity of their production, could hardly be more different. The often slightly sparkling, acidic, light white vinho verde is a strange neighbour to the full, rich, powerful, red Port wine. Both regions, also worth exploring simply for their stunning scenery, have well developed eno-tourism wine routes, and both are conveniently located to be explored from Casa da Calçada.

The area also has a wealth of other attractions, such as an 18 hole golf club and an aquatic park just minutes away and in a half an hour you can be in the historic cities of Guimarães, Braga and Vila Real, to name but a few.
