Enjoyed a lovely 5 night stay at Casa do Alto during our travels through Portugal. We stayed with our two kids, who loved being able to walk the cobblestone paths and roam the orchard. We had stayed in downtown Braga also but we were ready for the peace and quiet of the countryside. This rental is still very close to the city and all it’s amenities, but offers beautiful scenery and places to walk or hike right from the house, including a 2,000 Roman road. The apartment was just lovely, as well as the hosts. Very accommodating, and offered us some great suggestions for things to do the area. Highly recommend this place.
The total setting, innside-outside is a perfect get together place for up to 16 people. The combination of stone and dark wood, tails and private furnitures. The owner gives you a spacious private home with tons of Portuguese charm. We where four families with children, all related and loved every minute of a fantastic week. Everywhere you look, close or far, it is all beautiful landscape or charming houses. The pool is good for a long swim and dives. The outdoor barbecue kitchen ads to the evening ambiance. Nice beds, clean and beautiful bathrooms in all seven quarters.
When we arrived, fresh fruits in all colors waited for us. The owner , Donna Margaride, sure gave everything. Thank you, Obrigada
