Crossing the Rio Cávado from Fão to Esposende is done via bridge, take your time as the pedestrian section of the bridge is quite narrow. At the end of the bridge turn left, and at the next roundabout keep to your left into Esposende.
I highly recommend “The Spot Hostel Ofir” in Fão. It’s a beautiful small hostel with the best host ever. (Sandra speaks good English and will help you with all kind of questions.) The hostel provides bedding, towels, washing sinks and even got a swimming pool. 15€/night including breakfast.
Address: R. dos Veigas 14, 4740-369 Fão, Portugal
Casa de Matriz is an excellent place to stay in Fao, and Rita is a great hostess.
