Solar Egas Moniz Charming House & Local Experiences
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.
