House and surroundings
Casa de Vilarinho is a recently built villa, suitable for 6 people. The house is both modern and traditional in design, using materials such as pine wood and granite. The whole makes a very attractive and comfortable place to spend your holiday.
The villa is situated just outside a small village of the same name, on a road that is used sparingly by local traffic going to the mountain hamlet of Isabel do Monte. There, in the foothills of the Serra do Gerês, are excellent possibilities for walks and hikes.
The impressive national park Peneda-Gerês is “just around the corner”, as is the large reservoir of Caniçada (12 km), where you can rent canoes, jet skis, pedaloes and motor boats.
The most important place of interest in the vicinity is the Santuário de Nossa Senhora d’Abadia, a centuries old monastry in an idyllic green valley.
The nearest village is Santa Maria do Bouro (6 km), where you will find several shops, cafés, a weekly market, and an excellent restaurant in the historic pousada. There are more shops and restaurants in Terras de Bouro (12 km) and Rio Caldo (16 km).
The distance to the city of Braga is about 30 km.
