After having finished restoring the house and gardens, it was time to pursue with the spirit of Freixieiro: to share, indulge, please and make people happy while visiting us. From this evolved the idea of opening the house to the public, to establish a charming guest house capable of receiving and indulging anyone that comes by, whether for a different weekend, or to recover from a less favourable period of live or simply to enjoy a good time.
In Quinta do Freixieiro you will find spacious and romantic gardens, where you can give pleasant walks, a swimming pool to rest or to go for a nice and invigorating dive, bedrooms and spacious common rooms full of light, equipped with all the comfort, warm in winter and cool in summer.
The food and the staff are also strong points of this Guest House of charm, because once you seat at the table, you don’t want to leave it!
This place is 15 minutes by car from the famous town of Guimarães – European Capital of Culture in 2012, and 25 minutes from Braga – European Capital of Youth in 2013 and 35 minutes of the wonderful town of Porto. To get here you can always catch the train, rent a car or hire a driver’s services.
You can also take part in workshops that happen all year round, on various subjects from culinary, to dance, yoga, music, creative writing, health and wine.
Cherish, host and care: Quinta de Freixieiro’s mission is the same since 300 years ago
