Accommodation at Quinta da Avozinha Portugal.

Portugal Tras Montes Braganca Quinta da Avozinha Exterior

Quinta da Avozinha is a superb rural house with guest accommodation near Braganca in Northern Portugal

This beautiful house was built in 1930 and has recently been restored to very high standards. It is located in a small village near the city of Braganca where guests can experience traditional rural life.
Quinta da Avozinha Braganca Portugal
Quinta da Avozinha is situated on a hillside with views over the valley of the River Sabor.

On a dark hillock above Braganca, the remote capital of Tras-os-Montes, Portugal stands a circle of perfectly preserved medieval walls rising to a massive keep and castle enclosing a white medieval village.

Nearby is the Citadela, which is one of the most memorable sights in Portugal. This is a small hill, seemingly untouched by the centuries, with a hamlet whose size is wonderfully at odds with the royal connotations of the town's name.
Quinta da Avozinha Braganca Portugal
The Bragancas were the last line of Portuguese monarchs, ruling from 1640, when they replaced the Spaniards, until the fall of the monarchy in 1910.

To the British, the name is most readily associated with Catherine, Queen to Charles II. 

For the Portuguese, the town represents the defence of the liberty of the people, for the Bragancans were the first to muster a popular revolt against Junot in 1808, and have always defended their right to make their own decisions.

This house is perfect for anyone interested in a bit of 'wilderness' hiking, though, the nearby Natural Park of Montesinho provides some unforgetable walks.

The owners of Quinta da Avozinha would be delighted to show guests the area. They have also organised a guided tour (maximum of 8 persons) of the wildlife in the National Park. Other activities such as a traditional gastronomic route are also available to guests, making this an unforgetable holiday.
