About Maria Gloria Mesquita

Maria Gloria Mesquita purchased this House in 1999
Why Maria Gloria Mesquita chose Caniçada
This familiar house was our preference for weekends and vaccation. Now, it's difficult to go there due to my childen works and kids schools and we decided to rent it. But we find the place very nice, very quite, with a nice garden, swimming pool and an interesting vie. We believe it's a good place to rest but at the same situated in a place from where you can go and visit f.e. Braga, Guimarães, Ponte de Lima, Viana do Castelo, Porto .
What makes this House unique
Private swimming pool, the garden and the landscape.

Fully equipped beautiful villa with gorgeous gardens and private pool
We had a wonderful time relaxing here for 2 weeks. The kids (11 & 8 years old) enjoyed the pool, as did the adults.
We were made to feel so welcome when we arrived.
The villa is fully equipped with all you will ever need for a holiday. It has plenty of space and storage, the beds were very comfortable.
We often stayed at the villa for dinner and enjoyed local produce done on the brick bbq and ate at the fantastic dining table.
The views over the lake were lovely with a fantastic view of the sunset in the evening. The mature gardens are lovely.
Vieira Do Minho, the local town, had everything we needed including some great places to eat.
Beautiful historic town of Braga was approximately 30 mins drive from the villa and well worth a visit. The local people were very friendly and helpful.
We would definitely go back again.

Thanks for your comments. It was a pleasure to meet you and your family. And, be sure, "next" time you would have more reasons to love the pool ,,,,
what a such nice place to stay!
We really like so much stay in Maria Gloria's house. The location is wonderful with a beautiful view on the lake in canicada. the sunset was amazing every night from the pergola.
The house is so beautiful as well, never see a vacation house so well furnished in the kitchen but also in the outdoor games for the kids and the adults (ping pong table, swimming pool and balloons, baby foot, games in the kids bedroom, ...). everything was perfect.
the linen has been changed each week and the swimming pool is cleaned each morning.
Maria Gloria and her husband were also so nice and welcome us very specially. they pay attention to all and very tiny details to make you feel in vacations with all the comfort needed and everything is in a the detail.
the garden is so beauctiful as well. flowers and green for gardener lovers as me it was just paradise.
we will recommend this place and location to all our friends and relatives and will be more than pleased to come back.
good restaurants all around. we recommend the pussada close to the house on saturday evening (barbecue buffet) with a specular view.
we hiked in the geres park, place to visit: guimares, braga, porto, and the countryside.
thank you, gloria and your husband for this great vacation!
Estadia na Casa Dikitaru - Gerês
Classifico a estadia na Casa Dikitaru como excelente.
De referir a hospitalidade dos proprietários, a simpatia e disponibilidade.
A casa está muito bem equipada, tem uma óptima localização e vista sobre o Rio, o único senão é o facto de ser necessário carro para deslocações como, aliás, é referido na descrição da casa.
O espaço exterior é fantástico e permite desenvolver diversas actividades.
Durante a nossa estadia, e apesar de as condições climatéricas terem variado um bocadinho, desfrutamos da casa ao máximo.
Esperamos ter oportunidade para voltar.

une belle maison dans la région de Gėrès
Nous avons été très bien accueillis par les propriétaires.
La maison est confortable et propose de nombreuses activités familiales: piscine, ping-pong, baby-foot... Le jardin est très bien entretenu et très joli avec une belle vue sur le lac.
Elle est idéalement située pour découvrir le parc national de Gérès et les villes de Braga, Guimaraes et Porto (1h de route)...
It was very nice to have you family with 4 kids with us. We are very happy to hear that they found the place very confortable for them. Thanks for the nice words.
We look forward to see you again in Portugal.

Un petit paradis niché dans les montagnes
Une agréable maison tout confort, rien ne manquait. Des propriétaires aux petits soins. Une vue splendide sur le fleuve et sur les collines, des repas pris sous une tonnelle des plus agréable et une piscine qui a enchanté les petits comme les grands .En résumé, un petit paradis sur terre niché au Portugal dans les collines pour ceux qui aiment le calme et la nature et n'oublions surtout pas les restaurants portugais ..... Nous reviendrons sûrement dans quelques temps .
We are very happy to see that the house and its surroundings are a good choice for our guests.
We will be please to see you again in a near future.

Nice summer house in beautiful part of Portugal
Very nice house in an area scattered with luxury summer houses. Situated on a steep slope of the river Rio Cavado, with -in case there were no grown up trees in the well designed garden- an 180 degrees view over the river. Pool in the lower part of the garden surrounded with nice flowers and plants. Nice trips possible in the area as the very friendly owners explained to us when we arrived.
It was a pleasure for us to receive you at our house. We hope to maintain a friendly contact in the future.
Thanks for your nice comments.

HOW TO DRIVE TO THE HOUSE -
Driving from direction Porto/Brage (A3), take direction Braga Sul N103.
Follow N103 in the direction of Geres or Chaves until you reach after about 20 minutes a small roundabout. On this roundabout the village of Vieira do Minho is signposted to the right but don’t go to the right. Turn this roundabout 3/4 round in the direction of the Spa Waterfalls Hotel. Drive this road ca 3 kilometers until you see again a sign to the right to the Spa Waterfalls Hotel and take this road. You are near the house now. The house is about 200m after the hotel on the left hand side and is called -as is signed on the wall- Dikitaru.
