We recently spent five days at Casa Amora and it’s a wonderful, wonderful place. Luis, the co-owner, is a perfect host: fluent in English (and, from the sound of it, French as well!), keen to suggest places of interest to you personally, knowledgeable and funny. The area the place is located in - Rato - is walking distance from the centre of town - maybe half an hour down to the seafront - but is lovely in its own way. The little kiosk cafe in the local park, in the shadow of the aqueduct, is a wonderful down-home local place to hang out and soak up the atmosphere. There are plenty of decent places to eat just minutes away and the breakfast is a delight: plenty of home cooking, daily surprises and excellent coffee! The rooms are really nicely done and the whole place has been put together by a keen eye. Highly recommended!
