The pousada samambaia is a good place to stay in Trancoso. It is a simple place but very clean and the owners are really nice and takes good care of the pousada. I liked the breakfast, they made good tapiocas. Probably will go back. The location is excellent, 5 min walking to Quadrado.

Breakfast was fantastic and perfect for...

Simple, small pousada with lovely friendly, chilled atmosphere. Only 4 bungalows so make sure you book well in advance at peak Christmas/New Year times. Great location for being close to all the action too!
