Amarante has bars and restaurants and old wooden balconies jutting out over the river where pedalos and rowing boats are used by tourists. The more adventurous may like to try canoeing or white water rafting.

The 'festa of Sao Goncalo' is held on the first weekend in June and its ancient fertility customs probably date to before Christianity came to Portugal.

It is the custom for the local unmarried youngsters to exchange phallus like cakes during this period as a token of their love.

The 'Casa' is near the fine new mountain golf course at Amarante. Guests on these Northern Portuguese courses are able to play at considerable lower rates than the Algarve courses and at times to suit themselves. The club house is an excellent venue for golfers and non golfers alike.

There are strong links with the famous Portuguese poet, Teixeira de Pascoaes and his belongings are now in a museum within the house.

The owner lives on the first floor of the house reached by the imposing staircase.

The guest area occupies the whole of the ground floor and comprises a large and attractively furnished lounge with many separate sitting areas
