Guest accommodation Overview

Solar Egas Moniz - Charming House & Local Experiences is a charming guest house, based on a recovered 19th century house. The inviting Solar includes an outdoor swimming pool and a wine cellar.

The Solar’s rooms are separated into two main themes, popular art and history. Therefore, the decoration is contemporary, yet maintaining a traditional flavour. These air-conditioned rooms all feature a private bathroom with a hairddryer, and a view.

The Solar includes a dining area, subject to reservation. There, guests can appreciate several local delicacies and wines, and also enjoy a tapas menu. Egas Moniz is located in Paço de Sousa, only a 30-minute drive from the Porto city centre, and its many shops and restaurants.

It also features a library and a lounge with a fireplace. There guests can relax in a tranquil atmosphere and read or access the free WiFi. In the property’s wine tasting room, guests may savour several different quality wines, highlighted by the region’s typical Vinho Verde.

The property’s staff organizes hiking trip, subject to an extra fee. There is also the possibility to rent bikes and go for a tour of the Romanesque route. The Solar is primely located for those wishing to discover the northern region of Portugal, since it is within an hour-drive of historical cities such as Guimarães, Braga and Amarante.

The Porto Internacional Airport is a 31-minute drive from the Egas Moniz, and the Solar offers a shuttle service, at an extra fee.
