Enjoyed a lovely 5 night stay at Casa do Alto during our travels through Portugal. We stayed with our two kids, who loved being able to walk the cobblestone paths and roam the orchard. We had stayed in downtown Braga also but we were ready for the peace and quiet of the countryside. This rental is still very close to the city and all it’s amenities, but offers beautiful scenery and places to walk or hike right from the house, including a 2,000 Roman road. The apartment was just lovely, as well as the hosts. Very accommodating, and offered us some great suggestions for things to do the area. Highly recommend this place.
This property is kept in wonderful condition by the owners. Set in a small village very close to Geres national park, it’s a great place to stay.
Very large and comfortable for six people. The kitchen is well equipped and the bed rooms very comfortable.
We visited during one of the hottest periods in Portugal’s history and the property does not have air conditioning. Despite that it stayed relatively comfortable due to being an old stone house. There is swimming a twenty minute drive away to cool down as well.
You need a car to get around and the driving is not what most North Americans are used to with the small mountain roads.
Overall a great place to stay
