Set in the beautiful Portuguese countryside, the Quinta de Freixieiro estate lies 15 minutes by car from the famous town of Guimarães (the European Capital of Culture in 2012), 15 minutes from Braga (the European Capital of Youth in 2013) and 35 minutes from the wonderful town of Porto.
The first records about the Quinta de Freixieiro estate date back to 1720, when it was part of the Convent of St. Clare of Amarante. In time, it became owned by the family that still runs it today. It has been part of the same family for four generations and the farmyard within it has supported the local village of Guardizela during hard times with both food and shelter. Since then the generosity and passion of all the past owners of the property has moulded the spirit of this property whose mission is to care, entertain and cherish those that come to visit.
In the late 1970’s the famous Vinho Verde wine was first produced and since then the estates wines have earned several awards and have had a huge success.
In 2001, the family thoughtfully and lovingly refurbished the house to its former glory, keeping as much of the house as possible just as it was. Rooms have been restored, the gardens recovered and the whole property has been given back its past splendour. The house was then opened to the public in 2015 as a charming guest house capable of receiving and indulging anyone that comes by.
The expansive country house features 5 suites, one with an attic, as well as a yoga studio, living room, dining room and there is also a kitchen but it’s not open for guests to use. Outside, surrounding the house, there is a salty infinity swimming pool, gardens with walks, woodlands and vineyards. On top of the great accommodation, guests can enjoy sumptuous food and warm and friendly service.
The winner will be staying in a Double or Twin Room with private ensuite bathroom and large light and airy windows. Two of the guestrooms enjoy balconies, while two offer direct access to the garden. The winner’s stay also includes daily breakfast, transfers to and from the airport, a tour in Minho region with one of their partners and one diner for two in one of the local restaurants.
