Things to do in Vieira do Minho, Portugal

Vieira do Minho self-catering holiday rentals are found on the southern fringes of the Peneda-Geres National Park, which is the only protected area of its kind in the country, and provides a natural haven for a wealth of natural species, preserving some spectacular mountain scenery as well. 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. The centre here offers an abundance of history, with a stunning medieval cathedral that is nearly a millennium old. Meanwhile you could also make for the hills that overlook the town to visit the medieval sanctuaries – Sameiro is particularly attractive and boasts medieval frescoes and paintings. Also very close to Vieira do Minho self-catering holiday accommodation is the city of Guimaraes, which is preserved as a UNESCO World heritage site, and regarded as one of the most beautiful places in the country. The castle, dating to the 900s is highly recommended.

Amazing Property

4 of 5
We loved our stay here, the house is fab, and the area just what we wanted. Only minor problem with the electrics after a storm, but nothing we couldn't deal with. Definitely recommend.

Fantastic house in stunning location!

5 of 5
This is a beautiful house with extensive gardens set in the Geres mountains with stunning views. 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.
