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.

It is worth spending a couple of days in this beautiful site next to a river bank.

The property is large and the living space modern. The views are spectacular. Although the pool is not heated in the afternoon it is plenty warm enough. The new motorways in Portugal mean this house is well placed to visit lots of key places in the north, such as Porto, Braga etc. Car is a must. Highly recommended.

                                                                                                      4 of 5

We were superbly looked after by the caretakers Domingos and Elizabet who coped with a very busy and difficult week with road works and bulldozer damaging water supply ,and forest fires ! They are such hard working friendly people and Domingos even took us out to the Sete Lagoas in his four by four which was the best day of the holiday. We speak Portuguese , it could have been very frustrating in the circumstances without it .We loved the area and would love to return and rent the 6 bed property with family and friends some time.A car is essential ,four by four good for mountain roads ,low chassis car would be useless if your'e hiring .No restaurant open nearby in evenings, you need to self cater or eat main meal out at lunchtime. Small mini market has limited but good supplies and there is a bakery /cafe in the village, friendly locals. Very beautiful area with fabulous scenery and challenging walks. Lake/ river beaches nearby lovely.Very relaxing A small welcome pack of bread ,wine ,olive oil to get started would have been useful as found in many rentals. The shared pool is lovely but can be dominated by the large groups in the main house, fine if you like socialising but may not suit some.
