“Queríamos fazer um agradecimento especial ao convite para estarmos presentes na Guimarães Home Fashion Week.
Foi de facto uma excelente surpresa. Seja pelo vosso cuidado e carinho em nos manterem bem orientados, seja também pela coleção de produtos que nos apresentaram.
Toda a organização deste certame está de parabéns. O ambiente especial e simpático que a Pousada ajuda a proporcionar, bem como toda a oferta apresentada, tornou o nosso trabalho bem mais relaxado, mas sem por isso deixar de ser produtivo.
Contem connosco para a próxima edição.”Carmo PinheiroNECTARTE

I have collected many contacts and in the following weeks I will connect some of them to local showrooms who are more than interested in finding new partners in Portugal.

Pousada Santa Marinha - Guimarães
This stunning Hotel Guimaraes was awarded the coveted Europa Nostra prize for its renovation and restoration. It has retained the character and majesty of its former use as a 12th century Augustinian monastery whilst providing luxury accommodation with all modern conveniences. This Pousada is generally considered one of the best in the Pousadas of Portugal Group.
In prime position overlooking the town of Guimaraes the Hotel Santa Marinha combines luxury with Portuguese history and culture. Guests can explore the lake, formal garden, cloisters, grotto and granite fountains. The Pousada Guimaraes also features the famous Portuguese azulejos (tiles) in abundance, some dating back to 1747.
The town of Guimaraes, known as the ‘the cradle of the Nation’, was Portugal’s first capital city and the birthplace of the first King of Portugal, Afonso Henriques. It is steeped in history dating as far back as the 10th century, making it one of the most popular destinations for tourists in Northern Portugal. The medieval town centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and was the 2012 European Capital of Culture. Approximately 9 kms from Guimaraes is the Celtic settlement, Citania de Briteiros, which was occupied from 400 BC and consists of over 150 dwellings.
