Alojamento do Minho is located in Paredes de Coura and features a bar and a terrace. Booked last minute to be close to the Paredes de Coura music festival (the hotel is a 20 minute walk to the festival site). While I understood that I was paying a substantially higher rate than normal because of the festival (108€/night), I had some expectations that the room and the accommodations would be okay. Unfortunately, I was wrong. This hotel is very smart for not having taken photos of this room and put it up on the site, because if I had a notion that I was going to be placed in this room in advance, I would have taken my tent and camped at the festival site. In fact, my tent is bigger than the room I stayed in. I travel a lot, and have stayed in larger rooms in Manhattan at a lower rate than I paid here. I was disappointed, but there was not much I could do, everything else was booked up. If I paid the standard rate of 30€/night, then the facilities were decent. For 3.5 times that price, no way. On the plus side, it is relatively close to the festival, the bed was comfortable, and the shared bathroom was clean (no soap though in the second bathroom). On the negative side, the room was small and the wifi was unusable when the restaurant was open (from breakfast until the end of dinner).
Named after a nearby chapel, Casa da Capela is located 4.3 mi from Paredes de Coura and offers an outdoor swimming pool. This pet-friendly property offers free WiFi access. The location the staff and the food were terrific. Had a wonderful relaxing stay. A really beautiful place.
