Located on the historic center town, right alongside the 13th century city walls, our "Casa das Janelas Tortas Guesthouse" is a charming lodge with more than 300 years old, recently refurbished according to old traditions.
In a 10 minutes walking radius you will be able to discover a surprising lovely town through the old time-worn granite streets and alleys, with secular buildings, castles and palaces, monasteries and churches, as well as typical cafes and shops, museums, cable car, amazing plazas amongst many other interesting spots.
You can also find a big variety of restaurants and bars, bakeries, supermarkets, hairdressers, shopping malls, pharmacies and even a central hospital.
Guimarães offers you a wide range of all year round cultural spots and events, some of them international. It was not by chance that it was chosen as European Capital of Culture in 2012!
Transportation issues are no problem here; train station and bus connecting Guimarães to the main cities around and an international airport, taxis and local buses and rent-a-car/rent-a-bike.
In the outskirts of Guimarães, in a 15 km radius, you will also be able to find well preserved archeological remains of millennial thorps, golf courses, cars and karts circuits, football stadiums (portuguese premier league) and a diverse and captivating wild nature.
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.
The water takes around 20-30 minutes to get hot again so have that in mind, specially in the morning and at the end of the day, when other guests may want to wash too. The water heater has capacity for up to 4-5 persons to bath for a reasonable time. If you feel the need of a longer bath, please try to do it outside peak periods. Nevertheless please note that water is a precious good, so try to save as much as you can.
It was amazing there... We are feeling like a prince and a princes in xanas room. The old house was fantastic.
Xana and her husband were so helpful, friendly and warm
"What a warm nest", we say in Holland. A beautiful room with bathroom just 1 minute from the historic center. We stayed only one night but we slept like princes.
Excellent accueil. Hôtesse très intéressante. Appartement sympa. Les chambres dans le grenier furent très appréciées,
Très central. Équipement de cuisine sommaire mais suffisant.
Xana was very helpful and the apartment is comfortable for the 5 of us. Location is great and all the sights are within walking distances.
Lots of restaurant and cafe close by. We had a great time. Guimaraes is a lively place even late at night which was a surprise to us.
Xana is a great host - very friendly and helpful. She loaned me her bike and provided a cot for our baby. The apartment is not luxury as can be seen from the pictures but it is clean, practical and has a certain charm.
Xana nous a parfaitement accueillis, nous mettant dans de très bonnes dispositions pour visiter la ville. Nous avons pu bénéficier de tous le deuxième étage alors que nous ne devions avoir que le duplex : la propreté des lieux est d'ailleurs à souligner. Xana nous a également permis de donner notre linge à laver à la femme de ménage, sans contrepartie. Nous garderons une très bonne expérience de ce séjour et nous recommandons vivement ce lieu pour découvrir Guimaraes et ces alentours.
