between the city and the university

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Rua Doutor João Antunes Guimarães, Braga, Braga 4710, Portugal

The Space

Casa Magnolia is a very cosy, bright and spacious apartment, located on the second floor of a building from the sixties, which was recently renovated (maintaining its original design).
We call Casa Magnolia the house between the city and the university [a casa entre a cidade e a universidade]. You know why? Because it is ideal for those who want to stay close both to the city centre and the university, or halfway between the "two cities", in a calm and quiet area which is a 10-minute walk from the city centre and 10 minutes from the university campus.

The neighbourhood is quiet and the area equipped with supermarkets, pharmacies, cafes, restaurants, post offices, schools and the BragaParque shopping mall.
If you are looking for a place where you can have total privacy in a quiet and friendly, or if you're looking for a ground that will serve as a starting point for several walks in the city or in the Minho region, this is the right place – filled with all you need to feel at home!
The apartment features 2 single rooms and 3 double bedrooms. Common zones include the living / dining room, kitchen (equipped with fridge, oven, stove, microwave, ideal for making small meals and fine dining among friends), one full bathroom and a toilet.

There is a bus stop just down the street although you can reach almost everything by walk.
The apartment has got a two-car garage.
If you plan to visit the city by bike have one bike to borrow.

NOTE that It is perfect for scholars that come to Universidade do Minho for short or long periods - just because every room has got everything you need (weekly cleaning included), the common areas are fully equipped and it is halfway between the city and the university!
If you are planning to stay for more than one month, feel free to contact Casa Magnolia.

  • This is a lovely apartment, conveniently located right into the city centre. I got a bright, spacious room with a wonderful view on the old town. I also loved that there was a desk and a reliable internet connection so I could gladly do some work during my stay. Unfortunately I didn't get to know Catarina, but I was glad to have met her family, which is super-nice and friendly and will go all the way to make you feel comfortable and at home. Finally - great breakfast :)

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  • I had a fantastic time in this lovely apartment which is located right in the center of Braga. You will stay with an incredibly friendly family who is eager to share valuable information and is very open to interesting discussions. We were offered some great local food and breakfast. I can totally recommend this place and would love to come and visit again!

  • Catarina is a great host. Her house is impeccably clean, organized and well equipped with everything that we need in everyday life - going beyond basic washing and cooking apparel. There is also a designer touch to the decoration that also added to my experience and made me feel more at home: the house and the bedrooms are really as cute as you can see in the pictures. In addition, it is perfectly located near the university, downtown and the mall – a bargain that I am glad that I did not miss!

    I am also glad that I didn't miss you! ;-)

  • I had an enjoyable stay at the Casa Magnolia. Catarina and her family are very friendly and considering hosts, who make you feel welcome from the first moments. The apartment is conveniently located, close to the city center, University, shopping mall and main roads.

  • A very cosy and comfortable room in a beautiful flat - very close to city center. Additionally, Catarina and her family were so kind and helpful that they made my trip to Braga even more pleasant than I could think of! Thanks for everything :) If coming back to Braga, it will be definitively here!!

  • This was such a fantastic experience! Catarina's family was very welcoming and provided us with one of the best airbnb experiences. We left feeling like part of the family more than guests. They are located just outside the city center park, so we had access to a lot of nice shopping, fairs, concerts, and transportation. Great!

  • It was a lovely stay we had at casa sardoal! Nice, clean, big, and definitely a "place-to-feel-home" apartment! A feeling living in the nature in the city - balcony with view to the mountain sides of Braga...

  • If you want a family experience this is it! It is a house filled with real life living. Thanks to Ana for letting me stay in her room. I wish I would have had more time to talk with my host.

A fotografia e a escrita são parte de mim, para além dos meus filhos ;-) Já vivi em muitas cidades portuguesas, em Budapeste e em Macau. Falo inglês e francês, desenrasco-me com o espanhol, e sei umas quantas palavras de húngaro e cantonês. Adoro viajar (prefiro viajar para reencontrar amigos apesar de não o fazer com a frequência de que gostava) mas não sei que tipo de anfitriã sou... ainda...
