A recommander !!

Ancienne ferme très bien rénovée, beaucoup de charme. Un endroit agréable et reposant. J'ai beaucoup aimé y séjourner et Héléna est très gentille et attentionnée. Un petit coin de paradis, havre de paix bien caché à deux pas de plages plaisantes et non touristiques, et de la jolie ville de Vila do Conde. Une excellente adresse.

Tout, le cadre, très grand champ juste devant l'établissement. L'auberge allie magnifiquement l'ancien et le très moderne. Grand confort. Tout a été conçu avec énormément de goût, mais on se sent néanmoins très à l'aise. Petites attentions dans la salle de bain : lait parfumé, savonnette, champoing, très grandes serviettes. …… C'EST NOTRE MEILLEURE ADRESSE AU PORTUGAL


Extraordinaria experiencia!

Una casa muy acogedora y decorada con mucho gusto. La cama muy comoda y el desayuno muy cuidado con bizcocho casero y zumo de naranja natural, entre otros detalles. La atencion y el servicio excelente. Un 10.

Perfecta para desconectar

Es la segunda vez que nos alojamos en esta casa rural y nos encanta. La primera vez fue hace dos años; prácticamente acababa de abrir. Desde entonces su propietaria ha hecho varias mejoras, como una sala común y un párking más cómodo y a la sombra. La casa es preciosa e ideal para descansar. En esta ocasión nos alojamos en el Quarto Porto, muy agradable y con un baño estupendo (jabones Castelbel Porto incluídos). La relación calidad-precio es muy buena. Espectacular estar viendo las estrellas en las tumbonas que hay en el patio, que también es expectacular

Uma experiência singular! Recomendo muito.

A Casa Mindela é um espaço encantador: uma típica casa rural do norte de Portugal, muito bem preservada, com móveis de época, muito bem decorada e cuidada. A Sra Helena e sua equipe nos recebeu de forma muito calorosa. O café da manhã é bom, com frutas, pães, bolos e geléias. As crianças adoraram

Já tínhamos estado no ano passado e temos muita vontade de lá voltar.

Gostámos muito da simpatia na receção, da limpeza do espaço, da experiência de viver um dia das nossas vidas num espaço decorado à época (século XIX), mas com as comodidades modernas, com uma ligação interessantíssima entre os elementos antigos com os da atualidade. O pequeno almoço é fabuloso. Não gostámos de ter de vir embora.

Wonderful countryside stay near Porto

This place was amazing, lovely old farmhouse in the countryside north of Porto. The rooms are spotless and super well appointed and the bathroom's toiletries are excellent. Breakfast was lovely in a rustic kitchen. Everything was perfect!

Good breakfast; Helena was very helpful. A lovely and tranquil place to stay, well outside of Porto but only a 15 min drive from the airport. However, the city was easy to get to, with the nearest Metro station being only a 5-10 min drive away with plenty of parking. It was then a 40 min ride (on the slow metro!) to get to the centre of Porto.

Великолепное место для душевного отдыха!

Великолепный гостевой дом! Чувствуешь себя как в музее. Все продумано до мелочей и реализовано с душой. Большое спасибо администратору за все рекомендации и созданную теплую атмосферу! Хочется возвращаться туда снова и снова! Рекомендую всем!

Beautiful old house, nice garden with big ficus tree. Fantastic breakfast - fresh orange juice, delicious homemade jams, fresh bread, fruit salad, coffee, cakes... Helena is very nice hostes and to stay in her house was the best begining of our holiday in Portugal we could wish for...

A lovely old farmhouse well restored by Helena Duarte and her family who have owned it for generations. Well set back in its own grounds from the not-very-busy N306. Helena has been running it as a guest house for just six months and deserves to do well. She took great trouble to organise our dinner (we are travelling on foot) and to be up very early to give us breakfast. Thank you.

Great location! The finca was renovated with lots of dedication, love for the details and appreciation of the story of the finca. Extremely friendly and welcoming host. Delicious breakfast. Lovely house cats. 🙂

Excellent stay at Casa Mindela. Helena was a very welcoming host for my parents. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The hotel has a lot of chic and rustic charm. Breakfast was delicious too. Note this place is 20 minutes north of Porto airport, and 10 minutes away from the beach.

• まず、アプローチを歩きながら、その佇まいに感動する。庭も、よく手入れされていて、私たちが訪れた時は色とりどりの紫陽花が咲いていた。内部は古い石造りの建物をうまく客室にリノベーションしていて、古い家具を所々に使ったインテリアが素晴らしい。 スタッフはみな親切で、朝食もとても美味しかった。 • 強いて言えば、空港が近いので、離発着の音が気になったこと。


Not an actual guesthouse, but rather a hearty portugese family opening the spacious and comfortable attic of their beautiful beach house. I was rewarded with portugese hospitality in a familiar atmosphere, not lacking anything, including amazing food. They helped with all the onwards organization for caminho portuges.

My husband and I were walking the Portuguese Camino. Casa Mandela was like a oasis after a very long day of walking. Elena was very professional and Even offered to pick us up after our dinner, because we were walking, she didn’t want us to walk home in the dark. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would highly recommend her guest house for any body walking the Camino or visiting the area.

Our room was fabulous and because of the property's location was quiet- we slept really well. The staff was excellent Amazing family Quinta home. Super host. Wished wecould havestayedfor several days. Because no close by restaurants, host called in order, picked up and served us in her dining room, providing wine, bread with wonderful spreads. Great breakfast too! This is hands down our favorite stay of about 40 days walking.

Boa surpresa

A Casa Mindela é um cantinho muito bem conservado a dois passos do Porto. A casa, apesar de antiga, está devidamente remodelada, com todas as comodidades necessárias. O pequeno almoço é simples mas completo.
