This is a characterful, quiet stop in northern Portugal, and it's right on the Portuguese coastal camino - there are camino signs in the street outside. Apparently sometimes camino-walkers stay here rather than the more spartan albergues. The property is a cluster of historic stone farm buildings enclosed by a high fence - if you're driving you park inside the grounds, which are secured. There is a separate building with the guest rooms, which look on to the garden, and across to neighbouring vines. There is another building with a kitchen where you can do your own cooking. Breakfasts are taken in the lower floor of the main house. They were generous, inc lovely custard tarts bought fresh each day. Our room was spacious, and thoughtfully decorated, with a good sitting area. The bed was large and firm, and the linen was good. I would describe the accommodation as good-quality 3 star. Some of the paintwork needed touching up, and we did hear some noise from the adjacent guest room. \While the property is rural, it is not isolated. The small towns/villages south of Viana do Castelo run into each other, including Chafe, where the property is located. It's not picturesque country - it's a working rural area. There is a local restaurant in Chafe, or you can drive to local beach resorts for seafood. Viana is only 15 minutes, with its shops, restaurants and attractions. Ponte de Lima is 30-40 minutes, and is absolutely lovely. It's also a short drive to Barcelos, with its famous Thursday market. We enjoyed meeting the hosts, who were most welcoming. Apart from their accommodation business, they make organic wine. We were among the last guests for the season, and had the opportunity to chat and learn about the property and the area, which enhanced our stay.

Casa da Reina is as it has been described by others - a beautiful stone house with a pool and garden on the Camino. Cecelia and Christian are gracious hosts and take the time to talk to their guests about life in Portugal. It was most interesting. My room was large with a sitting area and a large bathroom. In addition I shared a sitting/sun room with one other guest. Also there is a garden kitchen that can be used by guests. Cecelia invited us to help ourselves to their wines stored in a wine frig in the kitchen. The wine was delicious. We opted for dinner at the Casa although there is a restaurant in the little town that serves burgers etc. Dinner was at 7:30 and was very good - cold meat and cheese; soup, mushroom chicken and rice, chocolate cake for desert. The chocolate cake was the work of a master baker. The meal was served with wine and coffee. We thought we might get ham and cheese for breakfast and were delighted to also find freshly cooked scrambled egg and bacon. Overall we felt privileged to stay at Casa da Reina and meet Cecelia and Christian. The prices were a little higher than what we had been paying but we thought it was worth it.

What can I say. What beautiful buildings, location and fantastic hosts. I booked at last minute as was too tired to walk any further, and I could not have chosen a better place wanted to stay a lot longer. Would love to return for a proper holiday here - if you book you will not be disappointed 😀 Thanks for the wine and sandwich - it really made my evening x

My friend and I were hot and tired from walking the Camino. This place was like an oasis for us! It is run by a husband and wife. They were so gracious! We scheduled our dinner with them and what a treat. I was able to soak my sore feet in the beautiful pool and drink delicious wine that was made right on the estate! Dinner was wonderful. Our hosts were a delight, including their small son! Our beds were very comfortable and we slept very well!
