Quinta das Lavandeiras is the place for those who enjoy all the peace and quiet that comes along with the rural atmosphere in Vizela. The estate is surrounded by vineyards and is made up of a refurbished 17th-century manor house, and an enormous garden filled with decades-old camellia trees. The big blocks of granite shape the main house and give a frame to the bedroom and indoor breakfast area. To the left of the main house is the camellia garden and an inspiring place for spring and summer outdoor breakfasts. Contrasting with the rustic exterior, the interior of the manor house features a modern and contemporary design.  The manor house has four bedrooms, all with private bathroom, TV, and heating. All rooms overlook the front of the house and the pool. It also features different living rooms and a dining room and breakfast.

I stayed in the Camelias Suite and loved the modern comfort that it offered. The property is only 2 years old, so the mattress, bed linen, and pillows are almost new, which is a big plus for me. The bathroom is decent sized and there is more than enough room for storage. Because we were still in the middle of spring when I stayed at Quinta das Lavandeiras, I took my breakfast in the downstairs part of the house, which used to be the winery. Breakfast was very decent, with fresh fruit, juices, espresso coffee and a good selection of pastries. They are kind enough to leave some cakes, juices and other food items that do not require fridge for you to eat during the day (or night) if you feel like it. Something that will be very helpful,  especially since there is no in-house restaurant and you are about 5km away from Vizela city center. Despite this distance, I recommend Quinta das Lavandeiras for the peace, the breakfast and the friendliness of the staff.
