About Living Santa Cruz
Thanks! You'll receive an email as soon as the property answers your question.
Living Santa Cruz is a guesthouse with studio rooms, including bathroom, kitchenette and a private dining area. Some rooms have views over the Monastery of Santa Cruz and others have an interior balcony. The building was built in the beginning of the last century but went through a full renovation in 2017. On the ground floor there is a reception and a dining area where we serve breakfast. There is free Wi-Fi throughout the property and TV with national and foreign channels in all rooms. We provide anti-allergy pillows, free hygiene products, water, coffee and tea in all rooms. The parking place is only 50 meters away (paid). In the exceptional time we live in, your health and safety are even more important, so we intensify all cleaning and disinfection procedures in the rooms and common areas.
Hello welcome to Coimbra. My name is Joel and I am your host. Traveling around Coimbra means traveling through time. Our city is rich in history and culture. Coimbra is also a great city to stay and visit the entire downtown region. Less than an hour's drive away, you can explore the breathtaking landscapes of the Serra da Lousã with its typical Schist Villages, the long sandy beaches of the Costa de Prata or smaller towns like Aveiro, Águeda, Tomar or Viseu. I hope to have the opportunity to receive you soon.
Our guesthouse is located in the historical centre of the city of Coimbra. 100 meters away you will find markets, shops, cafés and restaurants. If you are physically fit you can visit the whole city and its major points of interest on foot. The city is divided between uptown and downtown, so you will find many up and downhill areas; luckily, 50m away you find a lift that connects both zones. A 10 minute walk is enough to reach the banks of the Mondego River or the famous Coimbra University, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Take the opportunity to visit the Monastery of Santa Cruz, the Machado de Castro Museum, the Old Cathedral, the Major Seminary, the Botanical Garden, the Quinta das Lágrimas, the Monastery of Santa Clara-a-Velha or the Portugal dos Pequenitos. Let yourself go and enjoy the streets of Coimbra, among the students’ cloaks and cassocks, fado or serenades, take the remarkable opportunity to live the true academic spirit. By the end of your stay, you'll surely think that it wasn’t enough, because, as the famous song goes, Coimbra is even more enchanting, when it’s time to say farewell.
