Nous avons passé une agréable semaine à la casa da cuqueira, l'appartement est très confortable et spacieux. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié la terrasse avec son espigueiro et la grande piscine. Un beau souvenir de nos vacances au Portugal!

Casa da Cuqueira, located in the Vale do Ave region, is a fine example of the 19th century rural architecture typical of Minho province. It is part of an old farm comprising not just farmland but also woods and offers privacy amidst surroundings ideally suited for rest and tranquillity.

Casa da Cuqueira lies 1 km away from the town of Vieira do Minho, about 30 km from Braga.

Located in the vicinity of the Ermal Dam, the farm and its surroundings are ideally suited for pleasant and interesting walks.

The whole district, stretching as far as the Caniçada Dam, offers countless trips which beckon you to discover its beautiful landscape and rich cultural heritage.

The region is ideally suited for mountain and nautical sports, hiking, riding, angling, etc. Both the Cabreira Mountain range and the Peneda-Gerês National Park are just a few kilometres away from the farm.

Other Activities: Vieira do Minho
