A better description of this trip.
In the garden of Portugal, the green province of Minho, you will find Quinta dos Moinhos. You will stay in one of the attractive holiday homes situated in the authentic vineyard, with the for this region so well known standard grapes. From the quinta you will get acquainted with the World Heritage cities of Porto and Guimarães, but also Amarante and Braga are definitely worth a visit. Walking possibilities are also abundant here, in the Serra do Alvão, Serra da Cabreira or the more famous National Parque do Peneda da Gêres. After all these activities, the saltwater pool will cool you down!
In the middle of the port area with its traditional terrace construction, you will stay with Ronald and Jet in one of the rooms at Mesão Provesende, a cosy B&B in the protected village of Provesende. The surroundings invite you to stroll through the vineyards, take a nice train ride along the Douro or take a boat trip. Also visit Vila Real with the Palacio de Mateus or the station of Pinhão, with its famous tile tableau. End the day with a delicious meal and a glass of Vintage Port or a glass of red wine.
