We have just returned from a wonderful weeks holiday in the Minho region of Northern Portugal made all the more special by our good fortune in finding Casa De Sezim. This is an absolute gem of a place to stay; just outside Guimaraes and within easy reach of many beautiful towns.
The hosts are very hospitable; charming courteous and generous with their time and advice.
Our room was extremely comfortable and the whole building and grounds a constant source of delight.
My abiding memory will be breakfasting on the beautiful verandah each morning overlooking the garden, a truly wonderful way to start each day!

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
