My name is Susana. Me and my family found this lovely farm in 2008. Since then we are reconstructing it and making it work to be self-sustainable. My brother and my sister in law are agriculture engeneers and we love nature. We also have a rural tourism cottage.
This rustic country house, made of schist rock is surrounded by fields with a great variety of trees. Among them you can find oak, chestnut, walnut and olive trees. While you enjoy a peaceful stay, you can go for a walk on amazing trails and listen the chirping of birds and the murmuring of water pounds. You can explore brooks with little waterfalls, a fish pond, and even a small fluvial beach. You also can observe the farm animals which are confined in protected areas. Besides all this you could enjoy the magnificent views laying on this typical intense green of "Minho".

CABECEIRAS DE BASTO" is a country village located in one of the most beautiful regions of North of Portugal. It is famous for its XVII century Monastery of "S. Miguel".
This region is known for its enchanting forests and majestic mountains (Cabreira, Barroso, Alvao). These mountains give birth to several twisting rivers, along which you can find lagoons and pleasant sandy beaches of fresh water. You can also find the beautiful "Ermal" Dam, and the breathtaking "Fisgas de Ermelo" Falls.
This region is also known for its rich history, beautiful monuments, ancestral traditions, quality of local produces and welcoming and friendly people. The gastronomy is excellent, standing out the famous "Posta Barrosa" (special steak grilled on coal).
All of these should be enough reasons to make worth your visit.
