    SPRING CLEANING - We need 2 workawayers at same time during MAY for 1 week (not before)
    - We need 2 workawayers at same time last week of JUNE (not before)
    Thank you for reading our page

    We are at the country side, beautiful area to hiking, swimming (in the Summer), painting, reading. No public transport but there is always someone to give a ride in to the next town (+/- 20 minutes driving) where is train or buses.

    We have an unusual one hundred year old house with about 1,000 sq meters of land in the beautiful Alto Minho region of Portugal in the North West of the country, an area of lush green countryside, mountains and great rivers.


    The house is located on the edge of the village of Covas, 15km from Vila Nova Cerveira, on theRiver Minho which forms the border with the Spanish region of Galicia.
    We are in a totally rural environment with the unspoiled and undiscovered Serra darga mountains immediately above us and we have fantastic views from the house down to the valley of the River Coura and the attractive and very typical village. Covas itself is 2km away and has a good range of facilities such as cafes, restaurants and mini markets but it has to be said that public transport out of the village is limited.

    Finally a little about us. I am 57 years old I have a Tourism and a History degree.B&B business in our beautiful 1913 house during Summer season. We don't watch TV at all. We like to read, draw and paint, a glass of wine and good talk.Our house as a great atmosphere always with guests, friends and family.
    Animals: We have 2 friendly dogs and a cat and chickens.

    Finally a little about us. I am in my early 50's with three kids (they grew up in the mean time they are all abroad) and 2 dogs of varying breeds and a cat. I have a Tourism and a History degree. We don't watch TV at all. We like to read, draw and paint, a glass of wine and good talk. We are a happy family that lives inside a fantastic house with a great atmosphere, lucky us..

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Fantastic area to walk for long hours, in small paths or old narrow roads without coming across a single car, watch wild horses play, swim and sunbathe in natural pools, where all you hear is the water purling or the frogs croaking.f you are looking for peace and quiet, that can also be fun, this is a forgotten corner of the world, hidden away from the rat race.We have contact with local community for more then 20 years. We know the area very well and we have close relations with a type of community that is going to disappear in time. You have opportunity to get in touch with real world from inside because we have many interaction with them.
