Walking the Camino, this was our first stop out of Porto. It took us almost an hour to find it (mostly due to the vague walking notes by our tour company), but it was definitely worth it.
An absolutely gorgeously-restored Quinta on the rural backroads of Fajozes. The grounds were beautiful and featured lots of native trees and a sparkling pool.
Teresa was a great host. She could tell we were absolutely beat after our walk, and showed us right to our room and let us nap.
Our room has plenty of space to relax and a footbath, which I took advantage of right away.
We opted for a light dinner in the village (and the locals there were extremely friendly and accommodating), but I heard from another guest that the spread was fabulous.
There was some very loud, very weird squawking in the middle of the night, and I asked Teresa the next morning what was making all that racket. Apparently, the neighbors had peacocks and the males were calling out to the females. (I can feel your pain, bro)
Breakfast was served in the poolhouse and was a fairly typical Portuguese breakfast with cereal, pastries, yogurt, fruit and (of course) ham and cheese.
If I ever make it back to Porto, I would definitely make a pitstop in Fajozes and stay in Quinta das Alfaias.
