Outstanding 100%
From $85

“Casa dos Guindais” ,is an XVIII century house, located in the historic center of Oporto.World heritage protected by Unesco near by the Ferdinand Wall, the Cathedral and funicular elevator .The place, once a family house where many generations lived and grew up , is now rebuilt to its original splendor by architects Sofia Marques de Aguiar and Ernesto Jimenes , and it is now ready to welcome guests.

The owners, Francisca Pestana da Silva heiress of the estate and Álvaro Marques de Aguiar thought of making this place a comfortable lodge to spend a relaxed weekend or a short vacation whilst in the heart of the city. They both come from different professional backgrounds, he being an Aviator from early age and his wife Francisca a marketeer associated with arts. She served at National Theater for a few good years. They comment:” The diversity of our live experiences helps us dealing with a multicultural visitor that now comes to Oporto…”and “We hope to be able to meet our guest’s expectations, making their stay worthwhile to remember”.

The restoration of the building complied with the original plan and allowed to preserve some old elements in a project with lines marked by modernity and simplicity.

The materials used are noble and respect the rules of conservation of historic buildings in the city - Wood, Glass, Iron and Granite.

It is composed of 5 independent studio apartments equipped with everything that is essential to make guests feel at home. Details like extra thick doors and windows guarantee both comfort and safety. The rooms have two twin beds, bathroom, kitchenette and access to a romantic garden.

The restoration resulted in creating a well coming environment with a simple, modern decor, but also including some vintage antique furniture made by national craftsmen, with small touches of elegance that gives the place a very special atmosphere.

The project was developed around the existing tunnel and surrounded by courtyard and garden, guaranteeing privacy and peace for all who benefit from this space.

The location is outstanding, being close to everything worth visiting, the street ending in stone steps, leading you to the river allowing only pedestrians and very quiet.

We kindly invite you to visit this web site, look into the studios details, send us a message if you have any enquiry, and we hope to meet you soon, as a guest in our “Casa dos Guindais”.

Sincerely

Francisca & Álvaro

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We had a great stay at Casa dos Guindais. The place is centrally located, in walking distance to everything, but still wonderfully quiet. Alvaro, the owner, was friendly, professional and helpful in every way. The room -and the rest of the building- was beautiful and clean. We can definitely recommend a stay at Casa dos Guindais.
