Why Carlos Pereira chose Viana do Castelo

The waves of the beaches of Afife, are of the best in Portugal, for the practice of 'Surfing'.

So you start in this sport, there are at your disposal, various schools of 'Surf'.

Land of natural charms, minho is one of the oldest Portuguese natural regions. With the sea and the beaches of crystalline and pure water in front of him, and the hills and verdant valleys on his back, was this land that a large part of the Portuguese colonized Brazil from the 18th century.

In addition to the magnificent natural environment, the region combines the tradition of pilgrimages to excellence of odd cuisine, able to unseat a banquet in paris.

Visitors to the region can observe great part of its natural charms, its valuable cultural heritage, and revive ancient practices that still these days here and there are resisting dizzying change of time.

Portugal is characterized for being a country of mild climate and temperate Mediterranean oriented. being a small country portugal their regions are heterogeneous with regard to its climate. Still, because portugal is a country in southern Europe, days of Sun in all seasons. The beaches always highly sought after in late spring, during the summer and winter are also privileged destination for lovers of surfing.

The location is nice. That is the only positive. The premises is substandard, the electrics go off if you have the fire and kettle on at the same time, the bathroom is a shoebox with a sliding door, the shower ,and hot water, is a joke, and there is dog mess all over the "garden" and path where the washing line is and the first time we didn't manage to avoid all the deposits. It is not rustic, cute and charming, it is substandard.

"We have had an excellent stay at the Minhota house in Afife. The decoration inside the house, the kitchen and the bathroom are nice, clean and almost new.From the terrace we enjoyed the view all over the village and the St Antonio church. The atlantic ocean is nearby with its superb beach. For visit in the region we can recommand Braga, Porto, Ponte de Lima, all in 1 hours drive. The owners, Carlos and Carolina, are very kind and helpful, and the dog is super sweet. We enjoyed it very much."
