ABOUT MINHO

The areas of Minho extend from the Spanish border in the north, south to Porto and east to the mountains of Vila Real. It is a green and fertile area of rolling hills encompassing the great rivers Minho, Lima and Douro, and the National Park of Peneda Geres. The countryside of the region is typified by long, sandy beaches bordered by pine woods, picturesque villages nestling among vine-covered hills, and historic towns such as Amarante, Guimaraes, Barcelos, Ponte de Lima, and Viana do Castelo.

The area encompasses a range of postcard-worthy landscapes and features that could almost be Portugal in microcosm: dreamy river scenes, high mountains, rolling vineyards, beautiful historic towns, dramatic Atlantic beaches, ancient religious foundations and mysterious archaeological sites.

Then there's the bold, sharp and fruity Vinho Verde to consider. This young wine is fashioned from the fruit of kilometres of vineyards that wind along rivers, over foothills and into Minho mountain villages.

But while you're enjoying one of our fantastic villas in Minho, you may well want to take some time out from all that sun worship to explore everything else the region has to offer – so we've put together this handy travel guide to give you a little help and inspiration!

Minho has also captured the hearts and minds of many children due to its large selection of entertaining and exciting attractions. If you wish to uncover more about the royal legacy of this area, a trip to the Palace of the Dukes of Braganza is a must-do activity. This exquisite building takes inspiration from the many 15th-century manor houses seen throughout France during this time. Thus, this palace adheres to a very traditional and European style. Although it holds a lot of history, after the Dukes moved to the Palace of Vila Vicosa, the building suffered a lot of damage and deterioration. Fortunately, the palace underwent a number of renovations in the 1930s, helping to create the much-loved attraction we see today. Therefore, guests are encouraged to meander throughout the interior and marvel at the collection of pristine artefacts. The Palace of the Dukes Braganza can be found just over half an hour away.
 
Praia do Cabedelo is one of the region’s most popular beaches and is based just under an hour away from the centre of Minho. This beach is teeming with soft sand and clear water, making it a picturesque landmark that should not be missed during your time in this area. Guests can also embark on a range of thrilling watersports activities, exploring the sapphire blue water from an entirely unique perspective. Thus, this is an ideal attraction for those looking to detach from the stressors of normal life as well as those who are looking to gain an adrenaline rush.
 
For those looking to discover a truly incredible and unique attraction, a visit to the Gil Eannes Hospital Ship is a real treat. This extensive ship was once used to treat and care for the Portuguese cod fishing fleets during the tumultuous times of the 1950s. In order to preserve its impact, the ship was transformed into the Museological Unit and Sea Centre, educating both tourists and locals on the nuances of naval operations. Take some time to explore this ship in full, learning more about how the specialist equipment helped to protect a generation of local fishermen. The Gil Eannes Hospital Ship is based just 45 minutes away and welcomes guests Monday-Sunday from 10 am to 6:30 pm.
