North West Portugal

The part roman and part medieval bridge that crosses the River Lima and from which the town gets its name
The part roman and part medieval bridge that crosses the River Lima and from which the town gets its name

This part of Portugal offers a timeless pastoral scenery - lovely sandy and lonely beaches backed by the green hills and mountains of the National Park. Amidst all this lush greenery are tiny picturesque villages each with its pretty gothic style church.The towns such as Ponte de Lima and Braga were founded well before the arrival of the Romans. Many of the these towns are untouched by time with granite buildings dating back to medieval times and many a river bridge was constructed by the Romans and still in use today.

Autumn colours in this part of Portugal

Apart from the unspoilt postcard scenery the other advantage of the area is the cuisine and more delightful the low cost of restaurant meals. It is quite easy to go to a three star restaurant and pay less than £15 a head for a three course ”a la carte menu” and excellent Dao wine and other drinks included - simple snacks such as popular single dishes i.e. hamburgers and chips or bacon and eggs cost as low as £3 a dish.

Fresh food from the markets is also delightful, especially seafood, and local produce also along with fruit and vegetables all locally grown such as kiwi fruit, peaches and apricots.

Low food prices strangely contrast with the high price of petrol (same as UK). But with eating out costs so low as well as food and drink it will make this region easy on your pocket.

The Atlantic rollers break onto the fine sand beaches which run for many miles along North Portugal coastline

This region is near to the borders of Spain the region of Galicia with its splendid beaches and historic towns to visit being very quickly accessed by motorway and it takes less than 30 minutes drive to be in Spain. The nearest seaside resort of Viana do Castelo (just 26km away)is a pretty seaside resort which has a medieval centre and historic fountains in tree-lined squares. You are also near to Porto and can visit the former capital of Portugal which is Guimares,all within a one hour drive.

Lastly do not forget that our farmhouses and apartments normally include breakfast (you can request the hour) and maid service and bed making as well as a weekly clean and change of linen every three days.

So choosing self catering in this part of Portugal is far from being a working holiday for the lady of the house - you get the freedom of your own property and a no effort holiday for all the family!!


Getting There

The best airport for arrival will of course be into Porto and collecting your hired car direct from the airport. However, Santiago is only 90 minutes drive from the Portugal border and these flights are from Stanstead and Liverpool. Some flight information is as follows:
