Comfy and cute house with friendly neighbours. No WiFi but that can be seen as a bonus for some!

Relaxed Countryside Retreat

5 of 5
Quinta do Mineiro is a lovely farmhouse set in a small organic quinta with vineyards, sheep and some vegetable and maize crops. It is surrounded by wildflower meadows and woodland growing between the granite slabs and boulders that have often been stacked by the effects of a distant ice age. Peter and Maria are lovely hosts. They made us feel at home on arrival and offered us delicious honey from local bees and plenty of advice on places to visit, but were happy to respect our privacy for our idyllic stay. We stayed as a couple for a week, but there would be plenty of space for a family of four with a shaded bar-be-cue area and enormous first floor verandah for just chilling out. The huge kitchen is really well equipped for taking advantage of local produce and Peter offered us a wide selection of herbs from the garden. There are several local places of interest such as the town of Trancoso with its Friday market and even the heart of the Estralla mountains is only a short drive. One excursion I would recommend is up to Pinhao on the River Douro where the port grapes are grown. You can go on boat cruises, vineyard tours or just take in the most breath taking scenery. Overall the sheer tranquillity of our stay at Quinta do Mineiro left us feeling completely relaxed and free of stress.
