This is the first time I have used this forum so hopefully I am doing it correctly. We would like to make a booking for Casa Fernanda on 25 April 2019 but am having trouble making contact. Albertinho, I have tried contacting you but nothing works. I believe you can book us in to Casa Fernanda. I tried telephoning but the lady who answered the phone did not speak English.
I think I am relying on you to help us (a couple in our 70's) make the booking.

I think it is far too early to make a reservation, too many things could happen before your planned journey. I would try again at the beginning of April 2019. And if you speak to a person, who does not speak English: take in mind, that Fernanda hast to do some shopping to feed all the pilgrims who visit her place. So you may have talked to a volunteer helping in her albergue. So try again later.

I am not familiar with the Casa Fernando but I do know April 25 is a major public holiday in Portugal with many festivals it may not be the best day to start.

I sent you better contact information via a Private Conversation...

Fernanda speaks very good English, but her mother, who lives there too does not speak English, IIRC.

Hope this helps.

Staying at Fernando’s is a great experience and not to be missed. She speaks excellent English and is overwhelmingly hospitable. You will feel spoiled by her. But she only has 12 beds so it’s certainly wise to book. Arrive early so you have plenty of time to enjoy being there. Keep ringing you will get onto her eventually.

I, too, contacted Fernanda by phone with no difficulty when I reserved there. As others have said, her English is excellent. It's well worth staying there and as she has a limited number of beds, I’d keep trying so as to get a reservation. We were lucky enough to stay in her one private room. You might ask about its availability when you get ahold of her. Bom Caminho!

What they all said. Staying with Fernanda was one of the highlights of my Caminho. Also, could be she's off or a few weeks since this is the off season for pilgrims. Try again in a month or two - I booked one or two days in advance with her in September, w/o problem.

Book ahead by all means but 4 months in advance is a bit far.
It's the Portugues end of april we booked just a few days before last September So as suggested beginning of april should be fine amd if you're relaxed chilled out and don't fuss or hassle Fernanda maybe she'll put you in the only double room!!!
Bom camino
