This was really a good stay for 3 nights. A very nice welcome dinner and every morning the best possible service for breakfast. We did stay in the main building, fully renovated in the old style. Granddad his belongings still there. The bed was little bit small, but the ambience made it worthwhile nevertheless. The host was very friendly and... More

We stayed at Quinta da Cancela for three days and enjoyed every minute. We could not have been made more welcome by Arturo and Jose, who were truly outstanding hosts. Their love of the vineyard and the beautiful buildings is infectious, and it was a pleasure to stay there. Cannot wait to come back one day!

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Quinta da Cancela. Arturo, the owner/host made the experience far more than ordinary by sharing his stories, the history of the Quinta, and offering excellent guidance into how to see the area including Guimaraes and Braga. In short, Arturo is a fountain of information. We learned a lot about the wine regions... More
