Welcome to the Quinta do Convento da Franqueira, an enchanting guest house offering bed and breakfast and self catering accommodation. This 16th century Franciscan monastery surrounded by 35 acres of beautiful private grounds has been carefully restored with charm and imagination by the Gallie family, owners since 1965, creating a comfortable environment in which guests feel completely at home. The lush greenery of Franqueira's gardens, fields and woodlands, and the spring-fed swimming pool, hidden behind a graceful 17th Century 'fonte', provide the visitor with a perfect setting in which to unwind.

Located outside the market town of Barcelos in Portugal, the Quinta do Convento da Franqueira combines high standards of comfort with historical interest, offering excellent accommodation in the lovely setting of the Minho.
