Wonderful visit to Guimaraes

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a visit to Guimaraes where we stayed at Gilberto and Theresas apartment, it was fantastic. Gilberto was there to meet us at the arranged time, he is a lovely host and he made us feel really welcome by telling us a little about the town and the apartment. He had also left us some basics in the fridge to get us started as well as some treats like the famous port to try and some gorgeous almonds. The apartment itself is as described and is of a really good quality specification throughout the apartment. It is ideally located just around the corner from the main town square and all the attractions of the town, such as the castle and the palace are easily reached by walking. I did have a couple of queries during the visit and Gilberto was great at replying really quickly.

Thankyou Gilberto and Theresa for such a lovely stay in such a lovely apartment. Paul, Vanessa and Gemma

THE BEST. Would want to do it again!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say it any better or say any more than what the other reviewers have already said about this place. Fantastic location and the apartment was furnished with everything you possibly needed. And Gilberto and Teresa were SUPERB hosts. We are talking of possibly going back to Portugal next year and would definitely stay at this place.

We would have stayed longer!

  • 5 of 5

We experienced some amazing days in Guimaraes and this nice apartment. Teresa and Gilberto welcomed us very warmly and took time to answer questions and show us everything. They even left a filled fridge, fruits, and offered us to use the coffee machine (which makes delicious coffee). The house has been completely renovated in 2012 and its interior is tastefully decorated while some of the old features are still kept. There is for instance a massage shower, a kitchen with everything you could eventually need, a washing machine and a blower, as well as a television and air conditioner. The location of the apartment couldn’t be better. In front of the house is a really nice and cheap pasteleria where we used to take breakfast and behind the house is the old town with the castle, the duce’s palace, station etc. in walking distance. We also went to Porto for a day trip and can only say how glad we were to stay in Guimaraes. If you want to experience typical Portuguese style of living without too many tourists and excitement, Guimaraes is the better choice. It is extremely clean, people are so friendly and you can also do some walking tours in the environment. Thank you so much for these days in Guimaraes!

The Absolute Best!

  • 5 of 5

Never in our wildest dreams did we ever expect such a fantastic place. From the elegant decor (Teresa and Gilberto have the best taste!) to the perfect location, this topped our list of favorite places to stay!

The owners stocked the place with all sorts of goodies. Their warm hospitality was so welcoming, we did not feel like leaving.

The apartment is so immaculate and the bed so incredibly comfortable. Guimaraes is such a wonderful city with a small town feeling and this apartment was in the absolute best location - within walking distance to everything!

Teresa and Gilberto did everything to make our stay incredible! We can't recommend this enough!

It's fantastic that you have chosen to come back to Portugal after 40 years, to celebrate your 40th anniversary and honeymoon, and we are very proud that you chose our home to celebrate this date so beautiful. Your kindness and simpathy as no boundaries and it was a huge pleasure to meet you. Thank you for everything

Nuestra estancia en el apartamento no pudo ser mejor y todo fue gracias al gran recibimiento que tuvimos por parte de Teresa y Jose Gilberto, los propietarios y no hay nada mejor para unas vacaciones que empezarlas de esta forma. La decoración es exquisita con mucho mimo en el detalle, el cuarto de baño impresionante, la habitación muy bonita y sobre todo con una de las camas mas cómodas en las que hemos dormido. La ubicación es perfecta ya que te permite ir a cualquier punto de interés de la ciudad andando. Jose y Teresa son unos anfitriones excelentes, fuimos con dos niñas de 2 y 5 años y en todo momento nos hicieron sentir como en nuestro propio hogar, nos proporcionaron todo tipo de agasajos, incluyendo albornoces y zapatillas para cada uno de los miembros de la familia, la despensa llena y una copa de Oporto de bienvenida. Su trato es insuperable. Si volvemos a esta zona de Portugal sin duda repetiremos. ¡¡Altamente recomendable!!

6 Estrelas!

  • 5 of 5

Altamente recomendado, este pequeno Flat no coracao de Guimaraes! Uma das Cidades mais historicas de Portugal! O flat muito bem equipado, os senhorios muito atenciosos! A todo o instante o Flat nos faz sentir em casa e confortaveis. Apesar de estar inserido nao parte historica da Cidade, nao ha barulhos e os transportes publicos a porta nos fazem deixar o stress de lado!

Eu e minhas filhas nos sentimos em casa e muito confortaveis!


Obrigado aos srs Gilberto e Teresa

Owner's Response: O nosso muito obrigado por estas suas palavras que reflectem o bem estar que lhe conseguimos proporcionar nesta sua estadia em Guimarães junto das suas amorosas filhas. Sempre foi nosso propósito que os nossos hospedes se sintam verdadeiramente em casa e no seu caso que vem Guimarães para estar com as suas filhas é ainda mais importante que esse encontro seja num ambiente familiar diferente dos impessoais hotéis. Teremos sempre todo o gosto em vos poder acolher em ocasiões futuras. Bem hajam Gilberto e Teresa
