Two good restaurants, Mariana and Sr, Bacalhau are less than a...

Since now we've stayed here about five times! It's so lovely. The family restored a beautiful old stone-house and made up a nice and cozy hotel! It's a match of old with modern parts. The family is extremely friendly and helpful. Paolos parents are so sweet and they prepare a wonderful breakfast with fresh juice, fruits and of course natas....

We loved our four-day stay in this very friendly family-run hotel. In fact, we stayed in a family apartment for 6 next to the hotel but had full access to the hotel facilities.

Located in a residential area (old residences) and a little difficult to find. (We found out a couple of signs were missing.) Nice accommodations. Host does not speak english so had a bit of a time getting all the necessary information. We would suggest written instructions/directions in various languages be available so local sites and restaurants would not be guessing...

We've been to this place about five times during the last three years! It's so lovely! The family is always extremely nice and helpful! Now it's like coming home. They restored an old manorhouse into a modern hotel whith old parts. From Germany going to afife is even worth for just 4 or five days! You sleep there like heaven....

We had a wonderful stay at the B&B from Paulo and his parents. It is a beautiful place near the nice town of Viana do Castelo. The breakfast is super and it has a nice swimmingpool. The towns of Braga and Guimaraes are worth visiting. Kees en Annelies, july 2015
