Such a cozy home in a beautiful setting. The property was easy to find and the host was very helpful. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a rural get away. Wish we could have stayed longer than two nights!
We thoroughly recommend Quinta da Emigrante without any hesitation. For the three out of four of us (adults) this was our first visit to Portugal and the house could not have been more welcoming. The bedrooms were large, the kitchen well equipped and a snooker table featured among the furnishings. The TV was not working but that did not bother us one bit.
The outdoor grill was perfect for barbecues but the highlight of the villa grounds was the pool, which looked out on the distant hills. We enjoyed many sunsets after an evening swim.
Quinta da Emigrante is also a perfect jumping off point for excursions, especially to the remote splendour of the nearby Parque Nacional where we hiked. The baroque city of Braga is within easy reach and we spent a day rambling through Porto to the south. Viana do Castelo, on the coast at the mouth of the river Lima, is also worth a visit.
Maria and her family gave us a warm welcome on arrival which we greatly appreciated after a long journey from Lisbon!
