Staying at Casa dos Livros was... uauh We were not expecting such a nice place, so quite and full of culture. The house is huge, with large rooms, LARGE private bathrooms, and a very nice living room with a fireplace. There's music (if you want it), a lot of books to pick and read,TV (we didn't use it), and someone always ready to answer any question. Good experience! And with a car, so conveniently located to visit Guimarães old city centre, Porto, and Braga.

We found and booked Casa dos livros from Google search... We booked it because the room seems very nice and the view looks very good.. Little that we know that the house was AMAZING; view was AWESOME; and the host was SUPERB!! Because it was low season, we had the house for ourselves, complete with huge living room and very cozy fireplace.. Breakfast was very nice as well, Fatima even made home made jam and gave us "setting up fireplace" course one on one ;) She is also very informative an gave us loads of tips.. Which makes us feel our stay is way too short.. So we will definitely come back :)

Our stay at Casa dos Livros was amazing. It was my third time in Portugal, and was the best place to stay. Casa dos Livros has very welcoming atmosphere and I love how each room has been decorated. The huge living room was very comfortable to spend the morning and night. Walking in the large garden in the morning, picking up some lemons for breakfast, and making fresh juice were fun experience for my son. The hostess is VERY friendly and makes your stay as comfortable as it could be. I highly recommend Casa dos Livros for anyone who wants to spend relaxing time, but this place is especially great for couples and families.
