The Costa Verde region

Come and experience one of the most enchanting regions of Portugal were time has stopped and tradition still dwells in the habits of people.

Casa de Sestelo is located in the heart of Minho (North Portugal) in the county of Cabeceiras de Basto, less than one hour driving from Porto, Braga and Guimaraes (UNESCO World Heritage).

Cabeceiras de Basto is a lovely village from the North of Portugal, situated in a pleasant valley surrounded by several mountains and water courses, in an area of great natural beauty. During the Middle Ages, Cabeceiras de Basto was also an important pilgrimage centre to the Benedictine monastery of San Miguel. In fact, this is a region with many vestiges of human occupancy before Christ. The region is characterized by its natural astonishing beauty, between the traditional green of the Minho region, combined with the arid mountain range area of Tras-os-Montes.

The region combines the perfect conditions for the most diversified activities. From Cabreira Mountain one has an astonishing panorama, with clear streams and luxuriant green hills, dotted with picturesque mountain villages and scenic spots like the leisure areas of Moinhos de Rei which includes the communal windmills of Abadim, commissioned in the 14th century by D. Dinis, the king of Portugal.

Vineyards are also part of the landscape as this is the region of Vinho Verde, a fresh sparkling wine, characteristic of the northwest of Portugal. And don't forget the many manor-houses that are spread along the region, the rich local gastronomy and the colorful traditional festivities that animate the villages.
