13th century cottage located opposite Lindoso Castle, in the Peneda-Gerês National Park. Official Rural Tourism certificate 'Casa de Campo'. Inspiring place going back to medieval times, a great base for exploring Northern Portugal.

The space
This is a house with history, related to the castle. It was here that the registers of the town were made. Legend also tells us that at some point in time this house would leave the bread that supplied the Castle and that it was connected to it by a tunnel. To prove this legend we can find inside the house, the stones of the oven burned in great extensions, leading us to suppose that large quantities of bread were cooked there.
Casa do Assento, built in granite and wood, has been totally restored with materials and techniques typical of the region. It is comfortable with all modern facilities while retaining historic features.
Enjoy the castle, the Espigueiros do Lindoso (stone granaries), the many archaeological sites and historical monuments of the region, the rivers, water sports and hiking. And certainly the local gastronomy and the 'vinho verde' wine.

Where you’ll be

Viana do Castelo District, Portugal

Lindoso is one of the 'Aldeias de Portugal', the Portuguese brand that recognizes interesting villages in Northern Portugal. It is located in the municipality of Ponte da Barca, in Alto Minho, 4 km from Spain and is part of the Peneda-Gerês National Park.
The castle of Lindoso, built in the reign of D. Afonso III in the 13th century, is classified as a national monument and deserves a careful visit. As one of the official 'doors' of the Peneda-Gerês National Park, there is an interpretive center near the church and inside the castle. To book a guided tour to the castle and granaries use the email portalindoso@cmpb.pt.

Renting a house is part of sharing the places I like, starting with Porto and Northern Portugal. They are places of immense beauty, rich traditions and heritage. Come and be dazzled by the landscapes, culture, flavors, history and beauty of these places  I love art, music and food - things that make life so much better. And from nature, to walk through the mountains, discover beaches and rivers, to return to civilization at dusk and discover a good restaurant to enjoy the local gastronomy. Sobre mim: PORTUGUÊS A vida é muito melhor quando se é curioso. Viajar faz parte disso. Alugar casa faz parte do partilhar os lugares que eu gosto, começando pelo Porto e Norte de Portugal.

E da natureza, de caminhar pelas montanhas, descobrir praias e rios, para ao entardecer voltar à civilização e descobrir um bom restaurante para desfrutar da gastronomia local.
