Spending holidays here is to accept the invitation for a total rest, in full harmony with nature, is to forget that the mobile phone exists or what are lines of traffic.
When you reach our village, the pace slows down, you will be surprised and you will discover corners, lakes and genuine lagoons surrounded by the best that the Cávado River and the Serra do Gerês and Cabreira offer.
Nature is the strong point of our village and every walk through the rocks and foliage, we are obliged to hear the birds chirping and invited to hear the sound of the water running down the mountain slopes and running down the imposing Cávado River. A magical setting that dazzles those who enjoy pure nature.
The cold is also an element of great scenic beauty and the slopes of the Gerês and Cabreira mountains covered with snow alternate with the clear and green landscapes of summer. In winter our village is the perfect hideaway for those who enjoy the natural mountain environment, coupled with the warmth of the fireplace and the familiar comfort.
At any time of the year you can enjoy a quiet and peaceful atmosphere, perfect for a simple stay that reminds us of our grandmother's house.

The town of Vieira do Minho is the seat of the most mountainous municipality of the District of Braga and is characterized by the fabulous mountains that surround it: the Serra do Gerês and the Cabreira mountain range.
The region features several archaeological remains, symbols of ancient human presence that have chosen this area of idyllic natural beauty, arid and fertile land.
Nature is a constant company in our region, the freshness and cleanness of the rivers and streams, extensive and pleasant river beaches, belvederes, green hills and infinite fields. Places where the value of land is vital to the peace of an unhurried life. The inhabitants of these typically Portuguese corners are, by nature, welcoming, capable of transmitting an infectious sympathy.
The pilgrimages and folklore denounce parties and unique joys, where the color of the costumes, the smell of the traditional dishes and the taste of a good green wine all delight. Small villages, towns and cities, with their own life and personality, boasting traditions and customs, festivities and craftsmanship that have survived over the years, open their doors and invite visitors as numerous as long.
A notoriously agricultural region, occupying part of the Peneda-Gerês National Park, the region of Vieira do Minho has in its landscape and in the tradition of its people its great charm.
Vieira do Minho's economy is based on agriculture and livestock farming. Corn and potatoes are grown, and green wine is produced. The main activities of the municipality are the traditional trade, the industry of transformation of wood, the civil construction and the tourism.
The Minhota gastronomy is very much appreciated by the visitors and as typical dishes of the region we have the veal barrosã, kid, cod, Portuguese stew, rojões and papas de sarrabulho, cheese and honey.
This municipality plays a fundamental role in the country's energy production, since four hydroelectric projects are located here at the Caniçada, Ermal, Salamonde and Venda Nova dams.
