Quinta do Convento da Franqueira

Top choice inn in Barcelos

Run by a delightful husband-wife duo, this remarkable quinta (estate) is housed in a 16th-century convent turned vineyard and inn, 6km southwest of Barcelos. If you've got time to linger, book ahead for one of the two fabulous self-catering apartments: the Cloister Flat, replete with charming historical details, or the more private Gatehouse, with its twin terraces affording splendid views.
