The Region

Oporto is the gateway city to the north of Portugal - the city which gave its name to Port, a favourite both as an aperitif and after-dinner drink is situated magnificently at the mouth of the Douro river and boasts an historical centre which is now a World Heritage site.

Northwards, the Minho region is bordered by the sea running up to the Minho river, which acts as the country's northern border with Spain. Here, arched vines edge the roads and twist around the trees in the fields. This is the world of 'Vinho Verde', the dry white wine, which is such a superb accompaniment to fish and the local dishes of the region. Many vineyards are open to the traveller providing the ideal excuse (if it was needed) to sample traditional hospitality.

The Minho is steeped in history with ancient settlements, impressive churches and the pilgrim routes to Santiago de Compostela and there is not a town or village that does not have a fair or festival, especially in summer, where locals and visitors alike can experience fun, fireworks and dancing, accompanied as always with tasty local food and wines.

To the east of Oporto is the renowned and stunningly beautiful Douro Valley. Here, a Mediterranean climate encourages the growth of figs, cherries, almonds, oranges and, of course, grapes. It was on these sunny slopes and chalky terraces that Port wine was invented and it was on the River Douro that the barrels were transported in traditional boats to the warehouses of Gaia, on the bank of the river opposite to Oporto.

Northern Portugal is an area to be discovered at your leisure and our traditional, superbly located houses are your ideal base.
