About Manuel

Occupation: Teacher secondary education since 1992. Living in Viana do Castelo neighborhood where I was born. I studied at the University of Coimbra.

Manuel purchased this House in 2004

What makes this House unique

Near the house:  Indulge in a mini-cruise on the river Minho and Douro river and a 'Royal' dinner in a first class restaurant. 'Port Party': open bus tour in the historic center of Porto, followed by a Port Wine tasting and a visit to the wine shop. 'Golden Day': scenic train trip to Régua, in the heart of the golden Douro Valley, lunch in the best restaurant in town overlooking the river, and a peaceful cruise back to Porto. Unforgettable meal and wine, tremendous surroundings and a truly relaxing and stress free way to experience the best of Portugal. Carpe diem !! To the countryside, rugged and wild, visit the Peneda-Geres National Park, or go further into the Douro Valley. The village sits at the base of Serra d'Arga (784m), and the villages and valleys of the country in its hills offer a landscape from an earlier era. There is a nature reserve near in wetlands: Bertiandos Lagoon. History, churches and monuments, culture and nightlife abound in a dozen towns within a short drive, or for more sophisticated entertainment, there is the Casino of Povoa de Varzim. For the more active, there's karting, canoeing, surfing, bowling, cycling, fishing and horse riding. A visit to the city of Porto World Heritage Site is a must, as well as local traditional festivals with folklore, singing, dancing, decorative crafts and the famous cuisine of the Minho region. And there are plenty of restaurants serving the famous dishes of Minho.
