Casa de Sezim was a wonderful discovery. A fantastic manor house, not only for its history (over 700 years old always belonging to the same family), the beautiful garden and vineyards, the food on special days when they have a 3 course home-made dinner, the traditional "vinho verde" absolutely the best white wine (free wine tasting included), the views... but...

Historic manor house with same family owned for centuries. Renowned for its historical wall papers and coverings. The good breakfast was served on the sunny balcony and there was a nice pool to relax by in the gardens. Guri the dog was very friendly. Guimaraes is a lovely old town about 15 minutes drive away where there are many restaurants.... More

We stayed her for 3 nights and the room that we were in had a comfortable canopy bed. The old world charm of this manor house is something to behold. The grounds are quite nice and breakfast delivered to the veranda outside the room is plentiful and tasty.

Run by the same family who have lived here since 1360, Casa de Sezim is at once an hotel and a successful vineyard, producing some fine white wines. The location is superb with lovely gardens and an outdoor swimming pool and the rooms were spacious, clean and cool, The highlight, for us, was breakfast served on the balcony which overlooks...

We stayed for three nights in early September - the hotest days on record in this part of Portugal. And although this historic house has no airconditioning, the climate was perfect, both physically and socially. If you want to imagine what it may have been like to live the life of landed gentry in Portugal, without the worries of harvests... More

Proprietor and host José is part of the family that has owned this old manor house since 1376. He is gracious and welcoming. The exterior walls at the entrance could do with a lick of paint, but that is merely cosmetic - the rest was impeccable. Our room was enormous, with a good size, comfortable bed and a living room....

Although a bit of a drive from the castle and old town, it is well worth it. jose, warm and welcoming proprietor, runs this inn, which has been in the same family for generations, with excellence. The lobby/living room, dining room, and bedrooms have an understated elegance. Internet is good. Breakfast is plentiful and tasty with nice variety. Stayed late... More

Two nights in an historical paradise. A truly stunning stay in a Casa devoted to the production of great white wines. Individual rooms provide comfort, even in January ! But it is the rooms decorated in antique wallpaper that bewitch. Lovingly restored and eloquently described. Take a tour of these rooms, leading out to a glorious terrace with panoramic views...

We arrived after a long journey from Santiago de Compestela and did well to find the property. The rooms were from another era of the chateau variety , lovely and quaint. A bottle of the vineyard best white wine on the patio really relaxed us and then we had the best dinner ever ( two couples) served in the Casa... More

My husband and I chose Casa De Sezim by reading about its opulent charm and also to break our journey from Douro valley to Porto by spending a night a Guimaraes. I have a fascination for houses with character and after seeing and staying in many in Italy and Spain, this manor house held a special fascination for us. This... 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
