Quinta do Convento da Franqueira

Taste the 'Vinho Verde' of Convento da Franqueira, a 16th Century monastery built with the stones from the nearby ruins of Faria castle. The English owners have restored the 'Convento' with charm and imagination, creating a comfortable family home. The lush greenery of Franqueira's gardens and vineyard, and the spring-fed swimming pool, hidden behind a graceful 17th Century 'fonte', provide the visitor with a perfect setting to unwind.
