The very name of the hotel advances what you are going to find if you stay here: both a charming house and a true local experience.

The Solar Egas Moniz is situated in a beautiful, fully refurbished 19th century building. The interiors are cozy and full of light: light colours are dominant and stone and wood are the main materials. Outside you will find a little garden, a modern pool with deckchairs, tables and chairs where you can relax; and even a full wine cellar that will delight the discerning and bon vivant travellers alike.

The ten rooms have been decorated with simple and great taste, and are equipped with air conditioning, hair dryer and a very comfortable bed. The only thing it doesn’t provide are toiletries. The decoration is divided into two main topics: History and popular art. You will have to repeat your stay in order to try both!

The Solar Egas Moniz holds a wide dining room available upon reservation. There, you will enjoy an exquisite menu of Portuguese dishes and local wines. The accommodation offers a library and a great living room with fireplace, where guests can relax or enjoy the free WiFi connection.
This hotel serves a delicious breakfast with fresh, varied and great quality products. If you decide to stay here, you will taste homemade, freshly baked cakes and plenty of fruits each morning.
If you wish to explore the surroundings, the Egas Moniz has a wonderful location: only 30 minutes from Porto and a one hour drive by car from Guimarães, Braga and Amarante. From time to time, the hotel arranges hiking activities and you can try them for a small supplement. Furthermore, it offers free bike rental service.

trato agradable
Date of stay 03/04/2015
la verdad que el trato del personal de este hotel fue lo mejor, no pudieron ser mas agradables y serviciales. El hotel, la verdad, es que esta nuevo lo cual también resulta muy positivo, pero la habitación no me pareció tan atractiva....quizás el espacio daba la sensación de ser reducido y anodino...sin ningún encanto...tampoco tenías en la habitación wifi para poder consultar alguna cosa cuando llegas por la noche. El edificio es bonito pero el exterior, donde se ubica la piscina tampoco es acogedor, no es un lugar con demasiada intimidad donde pudieras relajarte y disfrutar...y finalmente y muy importante, ya que el hotel se encuentra en una zona rural, es que el pueblo no es un lugar ideal ni para practicar deporte ni para poder pasear...es entero con cuestas muy pronunciadas sin rutas ni sendas peatonales, tienen todas las calles y vías bastante tráfico, yo buscaba estar cerca de Oporto y poder disfrutar parte del día de un sitio mas tranquilo y no se cumplió mi objetivo.....Hubiera sido preferible quedarme directamente en la maravillosa ciudad de Oporto.
