Espero que os hospedes tratem esta casa como se da sua se tratasse!
Apartamento acolhedor, muito bem equipado e confortável (o colchão é bom!). Tem muita luz natural e o varandim dá-lhe um toque especial.
A localização é perfeita para quem quer explorar o centro histórico, e Fernanda foi muito prestável e esforçou-se por dar-nos dicas sobre a cidade. Recomendo!
The apartment is great: centrally located, beautifully decorated, great view and fully equipped! Maria is a welcoming host, available for any questions and always friendly! The only downside was that the bar across the street blares (bad) music until 2am, making sleeping early a bit difficult..
Che piacere abitare per qualche giorno a Guimares nella 'home sweet home' e sentirsi come a casa! L'appartamento posto al terzo piano ha una bella vista sui tetti della città e sulla via, si trova in pieno centro storico ed è equipaggiato di tutto!
Fernanda e' una padrona di casa molto premurosa.
Modern en heel net appartement midden in de oude stad. Alles is aanwezig en we voelden ons meteen thuis, mede door de pruimen uit eigen tuin en de heerlijke zelfgemaakte jam.
Es una casa magnífica, en pleno centro de Guimaraes. Tiene el encanto de ser una casa antigua y todas las comodidades de haber sido recientemente rehabilitada. Maria Fernanda fue muy amable y atenta. Sin duda recomendamos esta dulce casa!!
This was indeed a 'sweet home,' located very conveniently in the heritage area of Guimaraes. We stayed here for 8 days. The apartment is small but comfortable, beautifully furnished and well-equipped, and we loved the light and the view over the rooftops. It's mostly very quiet but be aware that a bar on street level can occasionally result in street noise in late evenings. Fernanda and Augusto were caring and generous hosts, and genuinely nice people. We would love to stay again on a future visit to Guimaraes.
Dear Graham & Rhea,
Thank you for your kindness and for treating our house so well. We are also thankful for your suggestions. We will take them all into account, because we want to welcome our guests and to make them feel at home!
We wish all the best to you and hope you will come back again to Guimarães, We promise that we will give you more attention, because this time our work at school didn't allow it as we were at the end of the school year.
