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

This is a working vineyard and still family home. House is amazing - very comfortable and relaxed. 10 minute drive into town centre, no distance at all and I return to this oasis after a days shopping or sightseeing is a real treat. Breakfast is incredible - endless fruit, breads, fresh juice and coffees. Great for people wanting a home... More

This place is realy a nice surprise for us. The room is very unique and each one has its own style. It is not 5 start comfort but offers some personalities. The environment is great and got a nice garden. The lady at reception is very helpful and friendly. It makes you feel like being home in a special way.... More
