Cosy apartment for single person or couple looking to relax in the epicenter of historical Braga! It can accommodate 2 more people or children on the comfortable sofa-bed. Train st. at 2min, as well the best restaurants, cafes, bars and sightseeing!
The apartment is on the 3rd and last floor of an 1800's building, which has been nicely refurbished. It has a lot of light, wooden floors, 3 french doors that lead onto a small balcony, facing back from the main road, which means it's very quiet (apart from the usual church bells, something typical in historic old Portugal!). There is 1 bedroom with a large bed (the blinds allow you total control on light exposure), living space with kitchenette and bathroom (with bath tub).
The apartment has everything you may need, including hair dryer, microwave, toaster, fridge, freezer, electric stove.
There are only 6 apartments in the building, (2 of them are offices), which means it's quite private.
There is everything near by: train station (2 min walking), bus station (7 min walking), taxis (2 min walking), pharmacy, cash point, baker, a food market 3 mornings a week, cafes, sightseeing, cinema, parks, etc.
The place fits 2 really, in the bedroom, but there is a sofa-bed in the living area, very easy to operate and quite comfortable, so up to 1 or 2 more people/children can stay there. Of course it isn't as private and spacious as the bedroom, so the price drops according to the number of people and is up to them to decide who pays what, according to the sleeping arrangements.
The apartment is decorated with objects from my travels around the world, and there is a lot of love and dedication in this cozy place! Feel free to read books, watch DVDs if you have a laptop, listen to the CDs, play the piano, board games, etc.
I welcome you to Braga and wish you a fantastic stay!

There is free parking nearby and a few free spots on Biscaínhos St. (Do not park on the handy cap or bus station spots as you could be fined). There are also car parks, the closest one being only a few meters away, situated in Campo da Vinha, a big plaza/square, where is also the Wall Street Institute.
I don't live in Portugal all year round, so I might be here to welcome you or not. If I'm not, you'll be in very good hands anyway, as I have reliable people who receive my guest on my absence.
When I'm in Portugal, I live in between Braga and Porto, so I'll see you during the check-in and will help you with whatever you may need, and after that you're on your own (with the possibility to contact if you need anything of course). Since I have to come and meet you for the check-in, it's important that we both respect the check-in time and communicate in case of any delays.
Located literally in the historic centre of Braga, less than 1 min walk from the most bohemian part of town, with nice restaurants and bars, where the main cathedral, Sé, is situated. Right opposite the main door is the Biscaínhos Museum, which has an incredibly beautiful and immense garden, truly worth a visit. (Didn't post any photos to not spoil the surprise!).
Since it's right in the historic centre of Braga you can walk everywhere. But if you need, there is a bus stop on the street, and plenty of others around to take you to places including the University (which is a 10/15 min journey away).
There is a taxi service that you can call (listed on my signature email) and there are also taxis at the train station (these are the closest ones, about 2 min walking away).

Adoramos nossa estadia em Braga. Elisa nos recebeu com muita gentileza e atenção. O apartamento e muito bem localizado e com um otimo astral. Recomendo!!!!
I had a great stay at Elisa's apartment,
it was relatively short but i was able within 2 days to feel comfortable and somehow at home :)
Nice, cosy, charming, with an energizing touch.
I am already excited to come back in spring to Braga, knowing that i can enjoy better my stay for a longer period in a such beautiful, nice place.
Fantastic location and a gorgeous apartment that has everything you could ask for. Filipe who works at the nearby Cafe Bertrand (and Elisa's friend) was very helpful on arrival plus the cafe sells amazing toasted sandwiches....perfect for when the blackout blinds help you to sleep late!
I would stay here again in a heartbeat, thanks Elisa!
Elisa's apartment was great and comfortable - all two travelers can need. There was no free parking nearby, as city recently changed parking fees all over the center, but Felipe, who met us there showed us nearest free parking, so we managed to avoid extra expenses. We did not meet Elisa herself, but her friend Felipe was kind and welcoming. Thank You, Elisa, for maps with locations for food, sightseeing and all other nice things to see and do in Braga. And we really enjoyed also various cats on the roof :) If we go to Braga again, we would definitely stay in Your apartment again.
That was a part of our honeymoon and we enjoyed Braga a lot. This is the flat with soul and we can feel in it Elisa's character.
Elisa (with Philip help) gave us the candels and the bottle of wine for the starter - very romantic :-)
We spended a lot of time on beaches because we are from Poland so we are happy when we can swim in the Ocean. And it was really nice to come back to that lovely flat. We also came to Philip bar - very nice and full of young people. But Philip has to take a few lesons of serving vodka ;-)
And one more thing: I love those beautiful 5 cats on the roof. They were my friends during every cigarette break and I was feeding them with love :-)
Thank you for such a great review, Sylwia! Those cats are adorable indeed :) You were the first to mention them, I had started to wonder if they were still there!
I am so happy you enjoyed your stay and that it was part of your honeymoon.
I hope you'll visit again :) Try during the Summer or even September, the weather is absolutely gorgeous and you will love it even more. All the best!
We had a great time in Elisa's place. It was raining for 5 days, so we spent many hours in the apartment which is super clean and full of positive energy.
The building the apartment is in is beautiful and very well renovated. The position of the apartment is also great with many restaurants just two blocks away.
The kitchen had anything you need and there's a small shop just a block away to buy food to cook.
Definitely prefer this apartment than staying at one of the hotels in Braga.
The garden on the opposite side of the door is amazing.
Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay here again.
What an amazing review! Thank you, Nikolia :) It really means a lot to me that you felt completely at home in my space, that is really what I wish all my guests to feel. I am also glad that you did visit the garden from the Museum opposite the apartment. If you liked it during rainy weather, you will love it when it's sunny! I didn't post any pictures of it exactly so people get the good surprise! Please know that you are most welcome anytime :) Best, Elisa
Nice and tidy apartment in the heart of Braga situated close to all the major sights of Braga! The apartment has everything you might need to make yourself at home! Check-in was very easy and uncomplicated! Thank you very much again, Elisa, for letting us stay in your cozy apartment!
A nice, clean, well-furnished and well located apartment. We enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you Elisa for sharing your space and global treasures with us.
This apartment certainly lived up to the description! It is ideally located right in the centre of Braga and the apartment is fantastic, a real home from home. On top of this Elisa was a great host, answering all emails very quickly and suggesting some great places to eat and visit. All in all highly recommended.
