Hotel Overview

Owning to a careful and precise renovation, Casa da Calcada is today a charming Hotel that invites travelling in time, in an extremely comfortable and unique environment. Charm and classicism are obviously present in an wonderful decoration where colours created comfort, where textiles tuck you in and where every ornamental detail tells a piece of history.



History

The Casa da Calcada was built during the XVI century to became one of the Palaces for the Count of Redondo. During the French invasions, the house had a major role on the defence of both, Amarante city and the main road to Porto, being the main headquarters for the allied commanders (Portuguese and British).  During the battle and on its third day, the house was destroyed by a fire. After these events, in 1817, the estate was bought by the Pereira do Lago family and then rebuilt.

During the beginning of the 20th century, the house became one of the most important meeting places in northern Portugal, for politician or intellectuals, lead by Antonio do Lago Cerqueira, born in the palace in 1880, one of the most important leaders of the 1st Portuguese Republic. After an exile in France, where he became an expert on wines, Lago Cerqueira returned to Portugal and founded one of the most important cellars of Vinho Verde, in the house, supported by the surrounding vineyards.

After being bought by "Mota & Companhia", the property was fully rehabilitated in 2001 and is now a landmark amidst the Portuguese hospitality treasures.

After a thorough study by a team of architects, the original baroque-style with some neo-classical elements, has been preserved. The decoration, following the romantic style, is transmitted through the furniture, textiles and exquisite details, the ambience of a family home, where guests return to the past and enjoy the tranquillity and cosiness of the several innermost places at their disposal. For the above mentioned reasons, facts and its history, the Casa da Caicada has been declared a building of Architectonic, Historical and Cultural relevant value by the Portuguese Government.
