Solar Egas Moniz is a late 19th century charming house in Paço de Sousa, only 30 minutes away from the city of Porto, which has been restored maintaining its traditional characteristics, in order to offer a comfortable and relaxed stay to those who want to enjoy nature and the historical heritage of northern Portugal. There are 10 double-rooms available in the Manor House, a reception with a library heated with a salamander, a breakfast room and Enoteca, a wine’s place with a sitting room and with a fireplace. Outside there is a children’s playground and you can also enjoy the swimming pool, the organic garden created to provide a stay with peace and tranquility in a rural environment.
Several different rooms are available inspired by portuguese popular art and the virtues of Egas Moniz ("courage, loyalty and altruism, among others).
This Manor house is not a mere rental accommodation or a family run guest house, it is not mere rural tourism, it is not a hotel. The Solar Egas Moniz “Charming House & Local Experiences” is the result of the dream of a family from the north of Portugal: the Vinha Family. This family invites you to come and awaken your senses, to let yourself go on a voyage which enhances the fullness of the Self, experiences, traditions and typical costumes of a welcoming people. This dream becomes a reality when from a place like this it is possible to get to know this region. We want to welcome you as a friend and hope that this house is your home too.
