Things to do in Vieira do Minho, Portugal

It’s a fantastic setting, full of interest for anyone with a passion for nature, and also boasting a number of sights relating to early human settlement. There are prehistoric monuments here, including dolmen, and, much later, interesting structures such as the Espigueiros of Soajo – large granite warehouses built for storing food. The park would be perfect for walks, with numerous marked trails leading to spectacular features such as the many impressive waterfalls in the park. Alternatively you could also make the short trip from a holiday villa in Vieira do Minho west to the historic city of Braga.

There is ample room for a large family group and the house is very well equipped with everything you might need. The swimming pool is larger than it looks in the pictures and very well maintained. Malfalda and Maria are superb hosts and deal with any queries straight away. This is a wonderful place for a quiet holiday in a very uncommercialised part of Portugal.

Fantastic views from the terrace. Lots of good walking all around. Owner very quick to respond to questions. We will go back and would recommend to friends.
