1-This is a smoking free establishment. Smoking is not allowed inside the house.
If you are a smoker and you feel the urge to have a smoke, please do it at outside areas.
The schedule for the "Silent mode" is from 22.00h - 08.00h. During that time we kindly ask to observe maximum silence as possible, as it is likely that someone is already sleeping or relaxing. Nevertheless, outside that period, we suggest that you have the consideration that other guests may be relaxing for some reason. In another words, common sense should rule.
3-- Strangers access to the Guesthouse
It is out of bounds for any non-guest to wonder around alone. Should you have any guests (maximum 2), no matter at what time of the day, they must be always with you on common areas. You should pick your guests at the door when they arrive and you should escort them out, when they leave, always making as less noise as you can.
Security is a very important subject to us all, dont you agree?
During the time they're inside the guesthouse, you should be careful about noise level. Even a conversation can be distressful for someone that might be studying or resting. Keep that in mind, please.
Please try to avoid gatherings outside by the door, especialy during night time.
We all know that sometimes we need an extra time to end a conversation before going in. Doing that at the door can bother other guests.

Should you have any further questions, feel free to talk with us about it. You will find us very open minded people to any subject you may have to discuss.
Dit is een prachtige ruime 'en suite' kamer in het centrum van Guimarães. Een groot zacht bed en persoonlijk met veel smaak ingericht.
Xana en haar man zijn super vriendelijk en super behulpzaam!
Er is een vegetarisch restaurant (zeldzaam in Portugal) in de buurt van hun huis dat ze ons aanbevolen... jammer genoeg gesloten op zondag. Desalniettemin hebben we dichtbij een lekker italiaans restaurantje gevonden met een vegetarische pasta op de menu.
I had a great time staying in Xana's place in wonderful Guimaraes. Everything is as described, and I was warmly greeted. The room is in a perfect location. Other reviews mention the street outside being noisy. I guess it is a little, but I actually like the bustle and having the window/balcony look right out to the activity. The street is plenty quiet later in the evening. You'll like this room.
J'ai ete tres bien acceuilli par une amie de Xana. Une magnifique grande chambre avec beaucoup de cachet, 2 balcons, une salle de bain privee et surtout un lit douillet et si confortable qu'il est difficile de se lever le matin. Endroit superbement bien situe au coeur du centre touristique.
Je le recommande sans hesiter.
Great location very close (walking) to everywhere we wanted to go: old Town, castle, we walked up the pinhao etc. Clean house and very nice welcome. Small bathroom and kitchen but has everything we needed. We took the appartment on the inside of the building so it was very quiet. There is also a beautiful double room available but it would probably be less quiet (on the street side of the building), though the owner says the street gets quiet at night. We parked our car in a free parking 5 min walk from the appartment (shown by the owner). There is also parking right in front but you have to pay. Definitely recommend this place.
Very pleasant and original room, very well situated, close to the historic center. Perfect welcome and good advices for restaurants, thanks to Paula!
Xana's place is simply perfect! It is in great location right next to old town. The interior was stunning and we were provided with everything that's necessary. Recommended!
A minha experiência com a Casa das Janelas Tortas foi perfeita, chegando a Guimarães você já fica contagiado com a beleza do local, chegando a casa de Xana você tem a certeza que terá ótimos momentos. Quando cheguei no local, encontrei Xana me esperando na porta de sua casa, entrando você sente o cheirinho especial, o cuidado e carinho que a Xana tem com seus hóspedes. Entrando no meu quarto fiquei encantada com a decoração cheia de detalhes o que me fez entrar no clima de Guimarães, me sentindo uma princesa. Xana me indicou também deliciosos lugares para provar as tradicionais comidas Portuguesas, completando minha perfeita estadia. A Casa das Janelas Tortas possuem uma excelente localização, pertinho dos principais pontos de Guimarães. Obrigada Xana pela oportunidade de passar bons momentos em seu local! Super indico, vocês não irão se arrepender!!
