Hola/Ola. Brother and I are walking the Porto Coastal as far as Caminha. We are thinking that we would book accommodation for the first two or three nights and then take it as it comes. Anyone stayed at Lavra/Angeiras cabins? Or in Vila Do Conde - any recommendations?? Thanks in advance!

The Coastal Route has become very popular, and in May it is VERY popular.

If you know your basic itinerary it might be a good idea to pre-book every night.

When I walked in Sep 2018 (similar month to May for numbers of people) everywhere I stayed (I had pre-booked) was full.

In early May 2018 I had also pre-booked places. Unfortunately I picked up a bad cold, so I tried to change my bookings for the next few nights from dormitory beds to private rooms, so as not to pass on the cold, but everywhere was full.

I think the demand for beds has now exceeded the supply on that route, unless you are happy with much more expensive hotels.

If you mean the Orbitur chalets - yes, highly recommend! Don't book via their website, or with booking.com, as if you contact them directly you can get the pilgrim discount on presentation of your credencial. Excellent value.

Holq/Ola @jsalt . I think I have an email address - and I can use google translate to send the message in english and portuguese. I saw in Brierley that there was a discount for pilgrims. Much appreciated.

Turns out I do not have an email address for this establishment. Also the reviews section indicates that phoning was a problem - not answering the phone. Anyone ever been able to email or phone??
Cheers

In Vila do Conde I stayed at Erva Doce. They treated me well, it was clean & the location was fantastic. I had trouble finding it though. It was 3 houses away from the CP and I should have google imaged it the night before. Lesson learned.

Do you know if they speak English?

I stayed there also. Just walked in. Excellent. I was upgraded to an aircon chalet at no extra charge and also got the pilgrim discount.

I stayed at Vila do Conde at Hotel Brazao - my notes say "great little hotel".
