This beautiful self catering house was built in 1930 and has recently been restored to very high standards. It is in a small village near the city of Braganca where guests can experience traditional rural life.
Quinta da Avozinha is situated on a hillside with views over the valley of the river Sabor.
Braganca is the capital of the Tras-os-Montes region bordering Spain.
On the lane leading to the house there is an excellent view of the fortified 'Citadel' on a small hill across the valley. This must be one of the most memorable sights of Portugal.
The well preserved dark granite walls surround the castle and the medieval white village.where life has changed little over the centuries.
This house is perfect for anyone interested in a bit of 'wilderness' hiking, with the nearby Natural Park of Montesinho where there are some excellent alks.
The owners of Quinta da Avozinha would be delighted to show guests the area. They have also organised a guided tour (maximum of 8 persons) to show the wildlife in the Park.
Other activities such as a traditional gastronomic route are also available to guests making this an unforgettable 'out of the way' holiday location.
