Little Cottage in the Minho region of Portugal

Holiday rental in nature!

Nature at its best! If you like the tranquillity but don’t want to be far from a buzzing village or city? This is the place.

An old mountain cottage in the middle of nature, in the lush Minho region of Portugal! You will find yourself in a small piece of paradise, with great views and close to a small village.

The house is situated on the hill of a mountain; with spectacular views. You have lot’s of choices: stay around the house and wonder around in the garden, make a nice meal, walk along the hill and enjoy the nature and view from the terraces. Or go out and discover the nearest charming village(s) with all the cafe’s/bars, supermarkets, nice little shops and good restaurants. And of course there is more to see and do.

A Little taste of the Surroundings

We are living on a hill and looking down towards the valley. At day already beautiful and at night more beautiful because of the lights, twinkling stars and all the nocturnal animals taking care of being heard. It is amusing and nature at its best. You can walk into the mountains and discover the wildlife, such as: horses (who will stay at distance), all kinds of birds, insects, plants, a small lake and a mountain source with drinkable water.
In the surroundings you have a diversity of activities. For those who like to be active: hiking, canoeing, biking etc. For those who like history; all kinds of old little villages and museums to see nearby. And for those who like to enjoy the quietness; our garden and simply the surroundings. And to meet locals you can go by foot or car to the nearest cafe ; Taberna Virginia situated at the church.

And?….Are you ready for a holiday amidst nature?

What to do, where to go…

We are near cities such as: Braga (15min by car), Quimaraes (30min), Viano do Castelo with its beaches (40min), Ponte de Lima and Ponte de Barca situated at the river and the river beaches with restaurants or bars. Nearby is the National Park Peneda-Geres with its lakes, hiking routes, wildlife and beautiful waterfalls.There is also Esposende, Apulia and many more beaches waiting for you to sup, surf, relax and enjoy the sun and sea. Porto is 1hour by car.
