This stately mansion has an easy access from the nearby road. It´s open to the public on a guided visits scheme, the guide is a friendly young lady who makes the visit interesting and amusing. The mansion is impressive. Besides the gardens, the house itself is unique and very interesting. There are an outstanding huge staircase with old Portuguese tiles, some rooms delicatedly decorated with wooden carved ceilings, china, candelabra, old furniture... Besides the mansion, that includes a chapel and a small private theatre, there are also a vineyard and a winery. It´s all run nowadays by a company, but it had always been a private residence until recently, being the last owner an old lady that died a just few years ago. Despite that, it all has a taste of olden times, it gives somehow you an insight on the upper classes´ standard of living in the past.

This is my favorite Alvarinho wine so I was extremely excited to go to the Palácio. The Palácio and it’s grounds are absolutely magnificent. Our wonderful tour guide Filipe was just amazing, a great source of information accompanied by an equal great sense of human. I cannot wait to return for more wine tasting and showing other family members this hidden gem.

Filipe, muito obrigado por todo a atenção e information. Continuamos a falar na mesa de cabeceira do quarto do rei lol. Excelente tour.

The guides are not very friendly, the "palace" sounds like a large house owned by a single family, famous for the special wine alvarinho which is sold there at a verg high price. As I read in a leaflet it cost 400 million pounds to be built and was sold for xxx thousand reis todays 100 euros. The inside rooms about 4 has a mixture of arts, are beautiful, but special attention should be given to one just for historic reasons, they say that in this room Salazar and Franco met together...outsider you can admire some ponds nothing special. For travelers with less time, a picture from the outsider would be just enough..Entrance is paid and no pictures are allowed of the rooms..

Visiting "Palácio da Brejoeira" is a unique opportunity that can not to be missed while travelling in Northern Portugal. The magnificent neoclassical palace was built in the beginning of the 19th century, being inaugurated in 1834. Since then and up to now, it has been the residence of important Portuguese noble families. Mrs. Hermínia Oliveira Paes, in her late 90s, the sole heir, still lives in the residential quarters. In 1910, the palace was appointed a national monument. Take your time and visit the beautiful rooms (decorated with precious paintings, great silverware and lovely china), the library, the palatine chapel and the theather. Then head to the English gardens with its famous roses and magnolias, and finally the vineyards. The fantastic "Palacio da Brejoeira Alvarinho Wine" is produced and sold at the palace premisses. In 2010, it was finally opened to public visitation (from Tuesdays to Sundays). The entrance fee costs E$ 7,50 per person for a guided tour. Tours on horse-drawn carriages are also available at E$ 5 (15 minutes) or E$ 15 (30 minutes) per person. Enjoy!

We came for the 10am tour and since no one else arrived that early, we got a private tour in English! If there were other people with us, it would have been in Portuguese. The tour for the inside of the palace is one hour, and the outside another hour. I highly recommend taking both tours. The palace is beautiful and full of history, plus the tour guides answered all our questions. They show you where they make the wine and brandy as well as the vineyards and grounds. We were informed that the owner who lived there passed away just six months ago so it's her nephew who lives there now. Just a heads up though- pictures aren't allowed inside the house.

a beautiful Palacio filled with some interesting interiors, furnishings and many other items that were of great interest. The private theatre was a surprise and a real gem! Well worth visiting.

We were encouraged by our host at Quinta Teimosa to visit the Palacio da Brejoeira.
For 30 euro total my husband and I took a most interesting tour of the Palacio, toured the palace grounds,including a romantic man made lake with an island and bridges, visited the original and modern facilities for wine making and tasted their renowned Alvarinho.
No crowds, a lot of interesting history and probably the best Alvarinho produced in the region. The the tours lasted 2 hours.
You need to call ahead for reservations for the tours.

What a strange set-up! We were looking for the Palacio but initially drove past the entrance, when we saw what looked like a barrier that you would see when entering a multi-storey car park! After turning around and going back, we were met by a young girl who let us in and told us to park 'next to the gardens' without telling us where the gardens are or showing us the way. We managed to park in the right place in the end. We made our way to the reception area, where we found out just how extortionate the entry prices are - especially if you want to look both inside the chateau and at the gardens. Here's the best bit - we were then told (see other reviews) that they could possibly give us a guided tour in English but would immediately switch into Portuguese if more people arrived! (I speak some Portuguese but my wife and children don't.) This is also strange as they have lots of young staff standing around not doing a great deal - so why can't they provide tours for different groups in different languages? You are allowed to look at the front of the chateau and a few horse carriages for free. There is also a wide array of wine bottles and glasses on display - all of which have "do not touch" signs placed in front of them, to the point if this becoming ridiculous. So we got one of the staff to take a picture of us in front of the building and promptly left. We later read the TA reviews and are relieved that we did not opt for any of the guided visits, which sound appalling.

There are several options of tours, we chose the cheapest, guided tour (in Portuguese) of the house and the chapel which costs 5 euros for 30 mins. The house is spectacular, the hand painted wall paper is amazing. We were shown only a tiny part of the garden. I think if you pay more you might be able to see the back of the house which apparently used to be the main entrance. Be sure to have a tea in the Vintage tea room in the grounds, to the right as you enter the main gate. Absolutely delightful cafe with homemade cakes and toasties. It's obviously open to the general public and many locals go there for a coffee. Altogether we had a short but lovely visit.

My wife and I visited the 18th Century Palacio da Brejoeira during a holiday in Portugal. We had booked a tour ahead of out visit.
Free parking is available in the front drive.
The Palace has been built in the neoclassic and baroque style and is quite impressive. It is surrounded by more than 30 hectares of vineyards that supply their own brands of excellent Vinhos Verdes wine.
Our tour guide (Tiago) spoke excellent English and was as is often the case on this sort of visit seemed to have an encyclopaedic memory. The tour lasted for about 45 minutes.
The interior of the Palace is interesting and is definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. However, book in advance.
