The Costa Verde region
Costa Verde has sea and hills and many historical towns and villages to visit. It is home to vinho verde and a step away from Galicia in Spain. The coast has many beaches a few of them with blue flags. We are one hour from Oporto by car and one hour from the center of Vigo in Spain. We are two hours away from the pilgrimage city of Santiago de Compostela in Spain and about 45 minutes from Braga in Portugal.
Along the Atlantic coastline there are many bike paths and many beaches have long wooden boardwalks for hikers. The hills near Caminha have hikers trails. If you like walking through unmapped terrains the hills around Afife are a challenge! If you like places still undiscovered by mass tourism this is an area for you.
Viana do Castelo
There is a golf course in Ponte de Lima which is circa 20 minutes by car on the highway, a ferry boat to take you and your car form Caminha over to Galicia (Spain) a tennis court in Viana do Castelo and a horse riding school near Viana do Castelo. Viana do Castelo has monuments and a local Museum as well as a new modern city library. The main festivities of northern Portugal take place in Viana do Castelo usually over the third weekend in August. They last three days and are the most famous of all folk festivals in Portugal.Throughout July and August there are open air concerts of traditional Portuguese music or folk dancing and all sorts of fairs. If you are interested in fishing, boat renting, horse riding or bike hire let us know and we can try to send you information.
