Ultimate experience

“My bucket list is full of places I want to visit and Portugal was one of them. Therefore, you can imagine how happy I was to get a chance to experience this country. There is no better place for that than Monverde Wine Experience Hotel in Amarante.


This little hotel with 38 rooms (the number will grow soon) is located about an hour from the Porto airport. The best way to get there is by car. Our plan was to rent a car but since my friend (and also the driver) does not own a credit card, we were not able to use this option. Therefore, we chose option n. 2 – Uber and we paid 50 Euros which I think was very reasonable. The roads are quite narrow so if you believe you don’t have the best driving skills, it is safer to call Uber or taxi. After 60 minutes on the road, you arrive to a complete paradise. After checking in, you are taken to your room. Ours was couple of hundreds of meters away from the building and we were taken there by a little car. You can choose from Classic, Prestige, Charming and Vineyard Experience rooms and we went for the Charming one. If I could, I would stay there forever. The room is made from wood, has one double bed, bath with view over the winery and a bathroom. Let me tell you, the view is everything. Waking up every morning while looking at the vineyard, is priceless.”
