Quinta das Alfaias
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Vila do Conde
Reviewed 19 March 2017

This house is built in the colonial style of Brazil and has extensive grounds. With rooms in both the main house and individual apartments it can accommodate any style and number of guests from single travelers to extensive families. The grounds are beautiful with an outside pool and large walled promenades.

Centrally located by car you can travel to the Douro valley, the coast, or Porto easily. There is even a metro stop close by if you prefer to travel by transit. The host is very personable and made sure I had everything I needed. This Quinta is especially suitable for families as the independent apartments on the grounds allow for privacy.

Room Tip: They are all wonderful!

Reviewed 13 November 2016

We, (2 Canadian/South African/French couples), spent 4 nights in 2 comfortable, tastefully decorated apartments, one with a kitchenette, sufficiently equipped for preparing snacks or light meals.
Meals were professionally prepared and served by Teresa in her beautiful, atmospheric dining room, reminiscent of colonial high life.
The house, apartments and swimming pool are set in a beautiful garden allowing for lovely meandering or reading in an easy chair.
Altogether a good base from where to reach Porto, the Douro valley and several other destinations of special interest (recommended by Teresa!) on the coast as well as inland.
The breakfasts were varied and copious and included in the rental price, the 3 course dinners tasty, but a little overpriced at €20 pp without wine.
We enjoyed our stay and can highly recommend this Quinta …

A great place to unwind after many days of touring in Portugal.
Welcoming hosts, friendly guests, gardens, pool - ideal !!
It is easy to explore many places from there in Northern Portugal.
We are looking forward to a great dinner tomorrow as the setting and hospitality are so inviting.

We had three nights here, in a nice room in a beauitiful garden with swimming pool north of Porto. you can take the metro to Porto and you can easily reach surronding areas of Porto by car. The hosts, Teresa and Joan really made the differece!. We were very well taken care of! We suggest to have dinner at the place: home-made by Teresa- together with other guests in their beautiful house

We had a wonderful visit: the room was very comfortable, the food excellent, and the decor in the home lovely. Teresa and Jean Paul were so welcoming and offered interesting conversation. We highly recommend the Quinta das Alfaias!
