    Ola, I am Tracey living in the beautiful Minho region of Northern Portugal. I have a lovely home in a small village near the Geres Peneda national park. After many years of traveling and living in in different cultures around the world this is the place I have chosen to call home.
    At present i are transforming our terraced gardens and house and would love to have the help of refreshing travelers looking for a vibrant break with a fun loving creative person.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Here you will enjoy the beauty of Northern Portugal and life in a small village. I am a chef so can teach you how to create something when you believe you have an empty fridge! I am very creative and very passionate about this region of Portugal.
    I am a few meters from one of the marked walking trails in the area that takes you through picturesque stone villages to a peaceful river. There is plenty to discover.
    Please mention “bagus ” in your message so I know you know who I am

    I am very well connected to Braga and the small town of Terras de Bouro, the bus stops right at our gate. There are many beautiful hiking trails and a beautiful river near by.
    There is a wonderful bar, restaurant, cafe across the road connected to the church ( bells only ring once every two weeks!)
    There is a bread truck passing at around 9.15 am everyday with fresh pastel de nata.
