If you're planning a trip to the North of Portugal, Quinta da Cancela is definately the place to be. We stayed there in september and it was the first of three hotels. After being pampered by our host Arthur, no other hotel could match his hospitality. He really takes good care of his guests. Especially the food and the wine,... More

This beautifully restored old farm gives you a super warm welcome. Arthur en Juliana open their home and let you feel the real hospitality of the Portugeese. The food is superb and the wine from their own cellars is just perfect. The surrounding countryside is beautiful, a visit to the town of Guimares and Braga are a must and if... More

Our stay was a dream. Atmospheric accomodation, looking out over the vineyards of this old family-estate, having excellent breakfast, unique wines and the best butler ever (cheers Arthur!). In short: we'll return. Definitely. Josefine and Rickert

A near disastrous 5 -day trip to Guimaraes that was saved by the fantastic support of our host, Arthur. We chose Quinta Da Cancela as a good base where my other half could look after our special needs son while I attended a conference but 5 weeks before our trip my partner broke his hip. Arthur came to our rescue.... More

We are very glad to have chosen Quinta da Cancela for our 2-days-stay in the North of Portugal. Arthur is a very welcoming host who will give you (if you wish) a lot of very interesting insights into the life in Portugal and especially into the wine production of "vinho verde". We were very pleased by having tasted the superb... More

My family and I stayed there for two nights, and at the end we were said that we have to leave so soon. Very pleasant quinta and surroundings. It combines the history of the house and today vine activity of the owner. Recommend to the families and vine fans. Owner was very helpful in managing our problem with forgotten notebook.

Arthur is the best host we ever had and the quinta is just wonderful! Accommodation very tasteful and the food delicious! If we come back to Portugal we will definitely go here again. There is enough to see and do in the surroundings but also spend some time near the wonderful pool...

We (2 adults and teenager) stayed in this beautiful Quinta for 3 nights. First night we stayed in the stand alone cottage (charming but requires kids to climb steep stairs to the second floor loft to sleep). Next 2 days we stayed in the modern rooms in the main house. Rooms are perfect for one or a couple – loved... More

Very friendly host who was more than happy to share the history of the family house and surrounding areas. The accommodation and setting was wonderful & we wished we would have stayed there longer. Really enjoyed learning about the 'flirting window' Highly recommend this place!!!
