    The grounds were amazing. Once you walk through the blue door a very large garden and farmland is laid out before you. Our room was large, very nice with stone walls. Very rustic. It was a nice breakfast. Not large but enough to get you...

    Mateo was so helpful! We love the outdoor setting to relax in the sun after a long Camino. Available wine and dinner on site was considerate.

Since the eighteenth century that the farm belongs to the same family. The owners have made recovery a memory exercise, to meet the time remains: with calm and passion. Every corner, every tree, has a story to tell...
My name is Jorge and I am co-owner and manager of the "Casas da Quinta da Cancela". My academic background consists of a degree in civil engineering and a master's degree in strategy and innovation management, which I used for 35 years in my professional life, connected to the business world. In 2015 I started to dedicate myself to the project Quinta da Cancela, whose rehabilitation, together with my wife, Grace, we ended in September. In January 2016 we started our activity with host tourism and production of green wine. Grace, is the owner of the Quinta da Cancela houses, has a degree in languages and literature and master in teaching of Portuguese Language and Literature, and recently finished his teacher career in public school.
Quinta da Cancela is located in a small town called Balugães. It is a peaceful place surrounded by nature. Despite this, Quinta da Cancelas it's also close to some emblematic cities, such as Barcelos, Ponte de Lima and Viana do Castelo.
