House and surroundings
The Quinta dos Vieiras – “the farm of the Vieiras family – and a few adjoining former farms make up the hamlet of Outeiro, which is part of Tabuaças.
A large wing of the main building, next to the eira (threshing floor), is transformed into a nice and comfortable holiday house for 6 people. Between the eira and the authentic espigueiro (a stone, narrow built corn shed) is a large pool and a fine sun terrace. The pool is heated, therefore the water is always pleasantly warm, even in early spring or late autumn.
One of the most agreeable places is the very spacious veranda at the back, looking out over the pool and the valley beyond with the foothills of the Serra da Cabreira.
The distance to the town of Vieira do Minho is about 2.5 km. There you will find all kinds of shops including 2 supermarkets, cafés, pastelarias, restaurants, banks and other facilities, and a large weekly market.
Along the reservoir of Ermal (10 km) are beaches and nice places to swim, and also a facility for waterskiing called Tele-Ski. More possibilities for watersports are to be found at the large reservoir of Caniçada (also 10 km). There are canoes, jet-skis, pedal boats and motor boats for rent and you can also learn to waterski.
The main road N103 is only a few kilometres away, which means easy access to for instance the Peneda-Gerês national park or the city of Braga. The distance to Guimarães (Unesco World Heritage) is about 35 km.
