Far from the more popular tourist destinations, Casal da Batoca is set in a quiet location and close to some of the region’s most interesting towns such as Guimaraes and Braga.

Guimaraes is known as the cradle of the nation. Its medieval castle and the palace of the Dukes of Braganca stand as a firm memory of the country’s monarchy. Guimaraes has UNESCO world heritage status.

Capital of the Minho region, Braga has grown to be the third town in Portugal. Its religious significance is expressed in the town’s 12th century cathedral and the imposing Bom Jesus do Monte, featuring an impressing Baroque stairway.

The Douro valley is approximately one hour and a half drive away and offers one of the country’s most interesting landscapes.

Portugal’s only National Park, Peneda Geres, is situated in the north of the country, approximately 35 kilometers (28 miles) away from Casal da Batoca. It is a walker’s paradise in an undiscovered wilderness of stark granite mountains, crystal streams, and verdant forests.

Guests have special rates at the 3 hole golf course at Casa de Lamas which is located approximately 25 kms away.

Porto airport is approximately 60 kms away.

The house can be booked for four or six persons but without exclusive use of the property.
