|This XVII century fort,
originally built for the military defence of the River Ave, has been converted into a small, delightful hotel. The hotel offers luxury and comfort in superb surroundings.
Located in Vila do Conde, approximately 30 kms from Oporto, the ‘Forte’ is situated between the River and the Atlantic Ocean.
The location is convenient for Exponor, the exhibition hall for the north of Portugal
The old part of Vila do Conde remains an active fishing port with a bustling Friday market and an interesting medieval quarter.
The narrow streets are at their best on religious holidays when the chapels in the narrow streets are alive with worshippers. Jose Regio’s house, in the Avenida named after him, is also worth a visit, displaying popular art collected by the famous writer.
The coastal road has several restaurants specialising in the local fish dishes.
The Forte opens onto a square
decorated by the charismatic sculptor, Joao Antero. It is the perfect
place for parties, concerts and dining ‘al fresco’.
GROUND FLOOR - Living room with fireplace, Satellite televison, CD player, direct dial telephone and mini-bar.
UPPER FLOOR - En-suite bedroom
with a double bed, bath robes, hair dryer and safe.
The Forte Restaurant at the Forte specializes in a wide variety of local dishes served in elegant surroundings.
The Forte also has a conference room, with modern audio-visual equipment, accommodating a maximum of 180 persons.
