Guestbook comments from the manager
This is a lovely and well kept suite of apartments. It is located in a beautiful and quiet street of Guimaraes. Location could not be better. The apartments are very well renovated and fitted out with old wooden floors and rafters. Arlete and her husband were very attentive to my simple needs. My only temporary difficulty was with a cockeral (Galo) of a neighbor who was instantly dispatched to the countryside - much to his delight. and I'm sure to the delight of the female hens. There is a charming tiny pub close by that can be noisy on rare occasions but also add considerably to the charm of the neighborhood. I highly recommend these apartments and I will return. There is no cloths washing facilities but laundries are close by.

COZY APARTMENT IN CENTRAL GUIMARAES

  • 4 of 5
This unit has a great location in central Guimaraes, right in the middle of this small city's historic district. Guimaraes is a charming town, well worth a visit despite its somewhat rainy climate. The bed in the unit is large and comfortable as are the two chairs in the living room. The bathroom is spacious and the kitchen is adequate though turning on the stove proved to be a mystery that could only be solved by trial and error. The TV had only 4 Portuguese channels and there was no Internet in the unit. The owners were responsive to problems within the unit - the hot water ran out while we were there and they replaced the gas canister promptly when we informed them that the hot water was gone. However, the owners should provide a welcome packet for guests, with essential information about services in the city - parking, in particular. Despite extensive questioning, the owners seemed unaware that there is a free municipal lot just minutes walk from the apartment. They instead advised us to park on the street where the meters must be fed every 2 hours. They also pointed out a shopping center with expensive long-term parking. Fortunately, a welcome center was just down the road and the staff helped us to find the free municipal parking (which is not located on the tourist map of the city). Nevertheless, I would recommend this property for a couple. It would be too cramped for a family (with the chairs in the living room turned into beds).

GREAT APARTMENT IN GUIMARAES

  • 4 of 5
The apartment is very well situated for the city centre within an attractive courtyard setting. The rooms are not large but more than adequate, They are also well decorated and clean and are accurately represented by the photographs on the website. The bedroom has a large bed and good storage. The living room has a small table and chairs and sofa for 2 plus a good TV (4 channels only).The bathroom is excellent including bidet but no bath. The kitchen is generally well-equipped though lacking a kettle.The best feature though is the small balcony which gets the morning sun and which has views of the hill behind the city. Although that the balcony is adjacent to that of another apartment and overlooked from neighbouring properties, we did not find this a problem.

The location of the apartment is normally quiet but please be aware that a nearby cockerel can be heard from the very early hours.

The apartment is close to shops including a small supermarket and the very helpful tourist information office. The way to the main part of the city is up a short but fairly steep cobbled road which some may find a little difficult.

Guimaraes is a compact city with many historic buildings and a good place to spend a few days. Although there are many restaurants, the choice of food is very similar at each so there is not much variety. English is understood by many of the locals and menus are often translated.

The owners of the apartment are very helpful and friendly people. There is another person (not an English speaker) who lives closeby to the apartment who helps with day-to-day issues.

The place is highly recommended.

You could not imagine that this apartment (in fact there is more than one) is as it is. Located in the historical part of the city and surrounded by the beautiful typical architecture. The apartment is renovated and the buiding is very nice. It has all the facilities you could ask for including a large LCD TV. Very nice balcony and am unbeatible localization. Will definitely come again (maybe in 2012 European Capital of Culture ...). Thank you for the hospitality.

In Guimarães historical centre, this typical apartment was renovated in 2010. Guimarães is the European Capital of Culture in 2012 and world heritage by Unesco. Probably the most beautiful city in Portugal, Guimarães was the birth of Portugal. Full of history, this charming city with its completely renovated centre is an amazing experience for everyone. Sports, gastronomy, sightseeing or just seating in one of the nice bars and cafes are among the things you can do while in Guimarães. During the summer you can enjoy cinema in the open air. Excellent restaurants, food and wine.

In the area you also have other lovely places to visit. Porto and Braga are 2 cities at less than 1 h by car.
