We are a three family group who have been enjoying family holidays in rural France, Spain, Italy and Portugal for 15 years, and Cuqueira is the first place we have returned to having been there before in 2011, Cuqueira stood out from all others. The house (Eira) is a beautifully converted granary, a sensitive blend of the original rough granite with modern white walls and dark wood - spacious, well-equipped and spotless. The house has a large terrace just outside. The pool area is shared by the three houses (and one small apartment) and is exceptionally good - the pool is larger than usual and is set in an expanse of lawn. All three houses have their own outdoor space and garden area - the gardens are lovely and maintained very well. The villlage (Mosteiro) and the town (Vieira do Mino) are both an easy walk (with footpaths) with a range of cafes and restaurants (Pancada in Mosteiro does a great "no choice" feast and Sandrui Bar in Vieira has great pizza - great steak everywhere. Prices are very low). This is a very unspoilt part of Portugal but no shortage of things to do: plenty of historic towns to visit and fantastic hiking country. Nice swimming at Ermal dam, rock pools at Portela do Homem on the Spanish border and the Roman Bridge near Agra and water activities and swimming at Canicada dam, and a good water park at Amarante. The historic town of Braga & Guimares as well as Bom Jesus and other historic sites are also within 30 mins drive. The owners of Cuqueira are very helpful and completely unobtrusive. Top marks all round.

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.
