The space


"O Laranjeira" Pensão Restaurante is uniquely situated in Viana do Castelo historical centre close by the emblematical Praça da Républica. This vintage building has a well-referenced traditional kitchen restaurant, 7 theme rooms and 5 apartments (future project).

The 3rdLaranjeira generation decided to refresh the image of the Pensão – the oldest commercial building in Viana – by telling their family story, reminiscing Viana’s traditions and folklore.

We wanted our rooms to be an unforgettable experience to our guests and created a cosy environment and still maintaining its historical legacy.

Each room has a different theme: "Traje à Vianesa", "Eiffel", "Filigrana", "Lethes", "Santa Luzia", "Tapetes" (flowers street decoration), "Traje à Vianesa" (traditional costume) e "Vinho Verde".

Mostly traditional Portuguese cuisine the Laranjeira’s Restaurant transmit its visitors traditional flavours a cosy service and family ambience. Like the good old days!

Helena did everything to make our stay comfortable and she is a very kind person and a good host! O Laranjeira is located in the centrum of Viana, wich was perfect. The interior of the building was also very lovely. For breakfast were not a lot of options, but for us it was enough. We really liked our stay! Thank you Helena!

We traveled to Viana do Costello for the first time and found a great accommodation. Helena welcomed us very warmly. She gave us all the little tips to discover the town. What to visit, where to eat, how to do it... When we had specific questions, we simply asked Helena, who answered us very kindly. The Breakfasts were very tasty and each person of the family was attentive to our needs. In a short way, I would say we had a lot of pleasure in staying in this room. A great thank !

I spent 11 nights at Helena's small family-run hotel. Even before I arrived I needed Helena's assistance with directions as I messed up with my Sat Nav regarding the exact address, and again on many times during my very enjoyable stay I received helpful and useful advice and suggestions on every aspect of my holiday from Helena. She was a very professional and very friendly host. While I was at O Laranjeiro I was made feel very welcome indeed and it was obvious that Helena takes great pride in maintaining her family's long tradition of making their guests feel welcome. My room (Traje a Vianese) was everything I had assumed from the Airbnb site photos with plenty of natural light, storage, lighting, power points, desk and wifi and a fully outfitted bathroom en-suite. The room and bathroom were cleaned every day and linen and towels replaced. Breakfast was always a great start to the day with a very colourful and healthy offering, all made with the freshest and tastiest of produce. I also eat 4 nights at the restaurant downstairs where I enjoyed the intimate atmosphere and a menu that covered a varied selection of Portuguese dishes served with a 'European' twist. Helena's father José who runs the restaurant makes all his guests feel special with a mixture of style and humour. If, like me, you enjoy good coffee and pasteries, Portugal is the country for you and Viana is no exception with a huge number of great pastelarias dotted around the town - yummi! Also, lots of small restaurants serving a wide range of typical Portuguese cuisine at extremely reasonable prices, so no one should go hungry in Viana! The location of O Laranjeiro is about as central as you can get in Viana about 30 seconds walk from the central square and the same from the main street which leads down to the waterfront of the Rio Lima. I parked my hired car in a covered 24-hour car-park just 4 minutes walk from the hotel at a cost of just Euro 3.99 per day. The main railway station with regular connections to Porto is just 3-4 minutes walk from the hotel. There's plenty to see in and around Viana with it's pleasing blend of old and new architecture and in particular (for me) its proximity to water, i.e. the lower estuary of the Rio Lima on which it lies and the Atlantic Ocean just a stone's throw to the west, with many kilometers of sandy beaches stretching to the north and south. Farther a field there are plenty of great hiking trails some of which are close enough to access easily by bicycle and some requiring transport but all worth the effort. Ask at the hotel for the details. There are also several very interesting museums in the town and in nearby villages. Boa viagem!

My boyfriend and me had three wonderful days in Viana and in Helenas accommodation. Everything was perfect! The room and bathroom were clean, cosy and big enough for two persons, the breakfast was very good with all you need, the location of the pension couldn't be better, Helena herself and the family and staff which work there are very friendly - even her dog is very nice. So all in all we can highly recommend Helenas little hotel!

Hi! My name is Helena, i'm a portuguese girl who decided to embrace a family business in 2010.
My project is a traditional restaurant with 7 rooms in the old house of my grand parents. Grandmother still alive and they are my inspiration! My father is the 2nd generation of this business and an expert in welcoming people and serving food in the restaurant. My mother is taking care of details :) and Maria Francisco - the 4th generation - offers smiles to everyone, without exception.

We love to welcome people and give them the best in town. Good food, good wine, good atmosphere!
Come meet the Laranjeira's family.

I love... food and good wine, good conversation, traveling, to dance and to practice yoga :)
