We absolutely loved our stay in this Amarante rural house. The setting is out of a story book: these wonderful stone houses overlooking a terraced hillside that land with the river at the bottom. Really beautiful. The house itself was very comfortable, as modern, clean and welcoming on the inside as they were rugged on the outside. The host could not been more helpful and curteous. Eduardo picked us up from the place where we called him (we *did* get a bit lost and confused on the many twisty roads of Portugal), and guided us to the house, then showed us the city center and suggested places to dine. Our stay was most pleasant and peaceful and we used the house as a base to explore the many wonderful sights of the region. We would recommend this place to anyone visiting Amarantes.

Ici tout n'est qu'ordre et beauté, luxe, calme et volupté (Baudelaire), c'est un peu ce que l'on ressent devant le paysage, le silence absolu, et le soleil radieux. En plus les fruits, et tomates nous étaient offertes , c'est l'avant goût du jardin d'Éden, du Paradis. Sauf qu'au loin, les pompiers s'agitent pour éteindre un incendie, et nous rappelle ainsi la vraie vie, le combat. Merci à Eduardo et Suzanna pour l'accueil, et leur générosité.
