Guimarães, birthplace of Alfonso Henríquez, first king of Portugal, hosts the Hotel Casa do Juncal, a charming accommodation, owned by Daniela Abreu and Mário Gomez. This young couple put all their effort into transforming a forgotten building, dating from the 18th century and is located in the heart of the city, in a contemporary and modern establishment, in which the guest feels as comfortable as in his own house .
It took more than six years and an investment of over one million euros to renovate this stately building of the eighteenth century. On the facade, it was decided to keep the original coat of arms of the time. The architecture studio Outras Formas took care of the rehabilitation of the main building and added an annexed space of modern lines that houses the bar and the breakfast area, all overlooking the interior garden. The interior designer, José Manuel Martins, and the owner, Daniela Abreu, were the ones in charge of the decoration. They chose a sober and simple line in which white and gray tones prevail.
Cedar is the main material of designer furniture. As a counterpoint, in the bathrooms opted for intense tones. The Casa do Juncal has six rooms of spectacular design; three of them, with the bed in a mezzanine.
