Overview

Se Studio Rental Photos and Description

Casa dos Guindais(www.guindaisbooking.com) is a XVIII century house, located in the historic center of Oporto, world heritage protected by Unesco near by the Ferdinand Wall, the Cathedral and funicular elevator .The place, once a family house that has seen many generations growing up, is now rebuilt to its original splendor by arquitects Sofia Marques de Aguiar and Ernesto Jimenes , and it is now ready to welcome guests.

It is composed of 5 independent studio apartments equipped with everything that is essential to make guests feel at home. Details like extra thick doors and windows guarantee both comfort and safety. The rooms have two twin beds, bathroom, kitchenette and access to a romantic garden.

The restoration resulted in creating a well coming environment with a simple, modern decor, but also including some vintage antique furniture made by national craftsmen, with small touches of elegance that gives the place a very special atmosphere.

The project was developed around the existing tunnel and surrounded by courtyard and garden, guaranteeing privacy and peace for all who benefit from this space.

The location is outstanding, being close to everything worth visiting, the street ending in stone steps, leading you to the river allowing only pedestrians and very quiet.
