    Absolutely charming house with a fantastic location next to a square in the old part of town. Sofia who checked us in and showed us around couldn't have been nicer!

    The location is very good, in the center of town in a pedestrian only zone. The room was very quiet for sleeping.

    Just a beautiful place, one of the nicest rooms I’ve ever had with a view of the town. Just loved it! Lovely hosts and beautiful shared space too!

Company info

The Dona Emilía Guest House, located in the main square of Viana do Castelo, is managed with the passion of close friends from different backgrounds and expertise. Rami El-Zein, a serial entrepreneur, and Sofia Araújo, the creator of the É d'Biana fashion brand, met randomly in 2017 in Viana do Castelo, while Rami was doing the Camino. They decided to create a company that would offer safety and peace of mind for pilgrims, and Easyhike was born. The concept of the Dona Emilía Guest House and apartments is to make you feel at home away from home with comfort, vintage design, and the welcoming vibe of Viana do Castelo.

Property info

Dona Emília GuestHouse and our new Lima Studio apartments are located in the center of Viana do Castelo. The guesthouse is overlooking the Praça da República square in a century-old building with two floors. The historic building was carefully restored with natural lighting from the house’s many windows and balconies. The wooden staircase goes through the entire building leading up to a large skylight. For guests that prefer calmness, our new Dona Emilia Lima Studio apartments are a 3 minutes walk away from the main square, river, the beach, and a vibrant array of restaurants and bars. Immerse yourself in the rich history and culture of this beautiful town, while enjoying the modern comforts and convenience of our fully equipped apartments.
