Can't say enough about this place! Arthur is so welcoming, super friendly and you feel at home right away. The family property is very charming, and well-decorated with a great old Portugese atmosphere. The location is great, close to many great little cities (Guimaraes, Bragga, National Park,etc). If you're looking for a great charming accommodation in Northern Portugal, look no...

The host was very gentle with us, and with our 2 daughters. When we arrived he showed us all the property, the cellar, the wine, and then we started talking and relaxing with his great Vinho Verde. The B&B was build in a 300years old house. A family house from 1720! But all is refurbished and restaured. Every thing is...

This was really a good stay for 3 nights. A very nice welcome dinner and every morning the best possible service for breakfast. We did stay in the main building, fully renovated in the old style. Granddad his belongings still there. The bed was little bit small, but the ambience made it worthwhile nevertheless. The host was very friendly and...

We stayed at Quinta da Cancela for three days and enjoyed every minute. We could not have been made more welcome by Arturo and Jose, who were truly outstanding hosts. Their love of the vineyard and the beautiful buildings is infectious, and it was a pleasure to stay there. Cannot wait to come back one day!

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Quinta da Cancela. Arturo, the owner/host made the experience far more than ordinary by sharing his stories, the history of the Quinta, and offering excellent guidance into how to see the area including Guimaraes and Braga. In short, Arturo is a fountain of information. We learned a lot about the wine regions...

This ancestral property offers a wonderful respite after a busy day of sightseeing. Our host, Arthur, could not do enough to make us feel more welcome or more comfortable. Breakfast every morning was a delight and the picturesque countryside was a pleasure to wake up to! This is truly an experience worth having and one we will try to do...
