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 is also a suitable destination for families as it provides a stellar selection of fascinating and inviting attractions. If you wish to uncover more about the rich biodiversity of this area, a trip to The Peneda Geres National Park is a must-do activity. This intuitive landmark hosts 22 rural villages that are spread across 70,000 hectares. As such, guests can observe an abundance of wildlife as well as the bustling nature of the local community. Here, guests can gain a more intimate and personal look at rare species such as cachena cows, goats, and autochthonous sheep. Guests also have the chance to marvel at the Castel of Castro Laboreiro and The Roman Road, exemplifying the far-reaching legacy of this significant region. The Peneda Geres National Park is based just under an hour away.
The Palace of the Dukes of Braganza is a deeply intrinsic monument that is situated just over half an hour away from the centre of Minho. This decadent palace was first constructed in the early 15th century and took a lot of inspiration from the iconic French manor houses seen throughout that time. However, when the Dukes of Braganza transferred to the Palace of Vila Vicosa, the building was left deserted and was left to rot. Luckily, the place was fully restored and renovated in the 1930s, helping to build a very popular tourist attraction. Take some time to revel in this remarkable space, observing the wide selection of artefacts and fixtures on offer.
Another significant historical landmark is Guimaraes Castle, which is located just over half an hour away from the centre of Minho. This impressive monument was built in the 10th century and is said to be the birthplace of Afonso Henriques, best known as the first King of Portugal. Due to its royal legacy, this castle was home to a variety of heroic battles, exemplifying its incredibly expansive history. In turn, this is a fantastic attraction to visit if you are a lover of European history and wish to immerse yourself in the forgotten legacy of this region. Guests can also climb to the very top of this castle and enjoy a series of idyllic panoramic views.
