The “Casa das Hortenses”, little property in Minho, a portuguese northern region, is located in the parish of S. Paio de Pico de Regalados, municipality of Vila Verde, a privileged place by Nature. It's very near from Rivers Homem and Cavado, just a few kilometeres away from their beautiful river-sides, fishing grounds, water mills and fluvial beaches. And only 16 kms away from Braga. You also have the Airport of Porto, 60 Kms (45 km on higway) away where you can arrive to and rent a car.

The Municipality of Vila Verde is the most picturesque from all over Minho. The people knows how to welcome as nobody else, preserving traditions that in old times were part of their daily life. They live and share popular festivals, markets and pilgrimages with intensity, but landscape is also an important touristic attraction, side by side with the very rich and refined gastronomy.

The “Sweethearts Scarfs” handmade embroidered, are typical from Vila Verde. They reproduce old love sentences of deep passions. Not so long ago, one of these kind of scarves were the first proof of love from the girl to her beloved.

Traditions for you to live.
