Solar Egas Moniz, Penafiel
Our stay was fantastic. The staff warm and welcoming. The owners have done an excellent job maintaining the property. Their attention to detail is amazing. We have never seen anything like it. That is including 5 star hotels. They made our stay feel like home. Our children loved relaxing at the pool and interacting with the staff. This was our favorite place to stay in Portugal. Solar Egas Moniz is deserving of a 5 star rating. We shall return someday.

Wonderful stay at Solar Egas Moniz! Staff was incredibly helpful, DELICIOUS breakfast, and the entire premises are so lovely. Clean, comfortable room, and the decorating of the entire inn is delightful. We took day trips to Aveleda vineyards, Porto, and other small towns in the area.

We spent four very pleasant days at the Solar Egas Moniz, Paco de Sousa, in early May. This 19th century, small, quiet, family-owned hotel (10 rooms) features quality original (granite) and modern décor and renovations. The two styles are presented as choices for guests. The hotel is nicely placed outside Porto (30 minutes on the highway) and within Duorno Valley quintas wine estates. The town of Penafiel is a few minutes drive away. It has all the tranquil atmospheric village sounds of monastery bells, occasional barking dogs and virtually no traffic noise. The owner, Iva, teaches tourism at a college level and the charming staff we got to know, Patricia and Iliana were all fluent English speakers. The staff could not do enough to make our stay memorable with favours, advice and suggestions.
