Superb Manor house in a great area.

  • 5 of 5

This wonderfully preserved and decorated Manor house (Casa Seniorial) was partly remodeled to allow for up-to-date, comfortable hospitality. Your opportunity to experience first-hand living in history. A superb mixture of old flavor with modern amenities and comfort makes this one stand apart. Rooms are large and comfortable, most with on-suit remodeled bathrooms and great views of the garden and surroundings. We were two families and used all 6 bedrooms. Dining room and launch that are open for guests use didn't get much use as it was July and we opted for outside living. The kitchen is the center of this house and "foodies" will find cooking here and spending time around it wonderful. An extra old-world farm kitchen will allow guests to bake breads or slow-cook in a real, wood-burning farm brick oven.

The area around the house opens endless opportunities for exploration of both cultural centers like Guimareas and Braga as well as endless nature walks and river swimming and bathing areas.

Owners are delightful and very accommodating - hospitality clearly high priority for them. The caretaker on site will help and solve any problem immediately and will keep the swimming pool and gardens in top shape during your stay.

Nothing is ever perfect, though; while heaven for us and the kids, one has to remember that farm animals have a tendency to communicate their existence to the world early in the morning and the house does have plenty of farm animals, indeed.

Há Pielas que temos de descobrir!

  • 5 of 5

O nosso fim de semana prolongado na Casa de Pielas foi muito agradável.

Casa e espaço envolvente de múltiplos encantos, para se descobrir e saborear aos poucos e de forma tranquila.

Localização excelente para quem procura um espaço propício ao descanso e ao recarregar de baterias para enfrentar as exigências do dia-a-dia com muito optimismo e confiança.

Experiência que pretendemos repetir, logo que possível!
