About Henrique Fernandes
I was born in this area, amongst green mountains and valleys, cristal clear springs and streams. Surrounded by simple welcoming and peaceful people. Mosteirinho is a rural paradise and I am a translator turned host with a passion for Nature, trying to pass this on to my children. I respect my guests privacy and I hope my guests will take fond and longlasting memories of this little paradise in the Iberian Peninsula.
Why Henrique Fernandes chose Vinhais
I will let my guests' opinion speak for me about this place that I love so much; "This place is gold, tucked away in the mountains at the end of a gravel road, perfect to get away from it all. Lovely furnished with great attention to detail, and Henrique is super friendly and helpful." Christoph from Germany "El lugar es increíble, la casa encantadora y henrique muy majo y atento. Maravillosos días de silencio en negreda.." Daphne, Spain. "O Mosteirinho é realmente um lugar especial. Este foi o segundo ano em que lá passamos parte das férias e voltámos a adorar. O Henrique desdobra-se para ter o espaço 5 estrelas! Sabe TUDO sobre a área e imensas histórias que valem mesmo a pena descobrir..." Marina, Portugal. "Best kept secret, a treasure to share though. Henrique and Lisa are great hosts who make you feel very welcome, and took us to the swimming holes nearby..." Eveline, Holland. "Henrique was an amazing host, with great communication and super attentive communication. The place was above my ecxpectations, a paradise for peace and relaxing, a house with delightful details, great taste, a breathtaking view and a night sky more adequate in a surrealistic painting. :) It was a perfect romantic escapade. Highly recommended, will be back when we can. Thank You!!!!!" Tomas, Portugal. "Henrique's property is indeed magical and isolated - it's one of those few remaining places where the only human-created noise is from an occasional airplane in the distance or a local tractor chugging by on a nearby hill. The persistent sounds come from animals, insects and the gurgling spring that provides drinking water a short walk from the front door. Heavenly." Ian, Estonia "Cet endroit est juste incroyable ! Reculé de tout, en pleine nature ! Dépaysement garanti ! Parfait pour la balade et le repos ! Merci Henrique". Thibault, France
