Nice very old wine castle/farmhouse which is the ideal place to unwind back in time. You feel like having a room in a museum, historical 12th century building which was a present of Portugals first king. Very quiet night, bathroom a bit old but fully working and super decoration No evening meal as we did not book it, but the... More

I almost don't want Casa de Sezim to become better known, but must add a review of this incredible place. In fact, I am writing this from the veranda outside Room #9 (the only one with direct access to the veranda, so you want it if you can get it, especially if traveling with a small child, as we are)...

Livelly peaceful place, the owner makes a great vino verde wine (try the 2013 millesime, it won the silver medal at Lyon wine concours). Lots of attention for guests and excellent breakfast with freshvorange juice. We stayed two nights and loved it !

We stayed at the Casa de Sezim at the beginning and also at the end of a recent 2 week trip to Portugal and it was far and away the best place we experienced. It combines the services of a high quality hotel with the intimacy and local flavor of a B&B. First off, the room was excellent. Very large,... More

Casa de Sezim is a true discovery and not to be missed if visiting this region of Portugal or near by in Porto or Guimaraes. As possibly one of only a few locations on the planet that is still owned by the 30th generation of the same family, the history alone makes any visit very worthwhile without mentioning the excellent...

A great option near Guimaraes and not far from Porto. An impressive XIX century property with rooms housing traditional decoration, panoramic wallpapers, and very charming bedrooms. José, the manager, was extremely attentive and friendly providing hints of the regions and attending all our requests.

This picturesque building has been in the same family for centuries. The estate makes the local vinho verde. The rooms are not luxurious but comfortable; there is no TV, phone or air con. Breakfast served on the verandah in fine weather is plentiful; breads, cake, fruit and beautifully cooked scrambled eggs. Evening meals can be provided with a few hours... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casa de Sezim became the ancestral home of the present family in 1376. The original vellum documents still exist and record that Maria Mendes Serrazinha gave Casa de Sezim to Afonso Martins a descendant of D. João de Freitas a companion of D. Afonso Henriques, the first king of Portugal. The document states that Casa de Sezim was given to Afonso Martins in recognition of " As boas graças que dele recebeu e espera receber e por crença que lhe fez", the good works received from him and hope to receive and for his trusting belief. ... more   less
