We would really recommend this Quinta to everybody:

Arthur and his wife are very friendly and helpfull people.
They give their guests a warm welcome so you feel immediately at home!

The location is really beautiful with a big garden, a swimming pool, a nice terrace,
big and beautiful rooms, kitchen, library, ...

You can stay at the domain to enjoy the peace, to take a swim, ...
You can also visit different places (Braga, Guimaraes, ...) from here.

Breakfast was also excellent, with homemade jams, fresh fruit, ...

We travelled around the north of Portugal and stayed in different hotels
and the best feeling about our stay goes to Quinta da Cancela.

We have spent 4 nights at Quinta da Cancela, and having known it would be such a wonderful accommodation, we would have arranged for more. The Quinta is a perfectly renovated historic house, dating back to 1720, with a charming interieur. Arthur, our landlord, serves a delicate and very personal breakfast on the terrace, overlooking the nice and quiet yard. There's plenty of room inside, small kitchen facilities, a fridge, and the terrace with a hammock, which is also perfect for having a glass of wine in the sunset. Only the double bed was very small, so please be sure you really love each other... The swimmingpool is nice as well, huge garden nearby with apple and lemon trees. Small hint to Arthur: Please install some signposts, because it's really hard to find your quinta.

Beautiful place near Braga. We rented a car while in Portugal and decided not to stay inside the small city of Braga, but book this place just outside Braga since it is easy to visit Braga by car.

It was a beautiful old building with lovely gardens. Our room was very nice and a great mixture between acient and modern. But the greatest part was that we felt you really were visiting Portuguese friends. The owner and his wife were super friendly and really made you feel super welcome. We really felt that we we're having a taste of the real Portugal.

Stayed: June 2010, traveled with family

I stayed at Quinta da Cancela with my wife in our wedding night. We have chosen Quinta da cancela for it's peacefull location. It is placed in the meadle of portuguese agricultural fields, so silence it's a garanty.
Also the service it was perfect, we got a tradicional breakfast with local products. The people were very nice, always respecting my privacy. The instalation were new and the house, old fashion, was very cosy.
I do recomend Quinta da cancela.

Room Tip: Master bedroom has a great view in the bathroom
