For more information, please visit casadoalto, braga, portugal in the net. The shared surrounding gardens, pool and outdoor kitchens. The large secluded private swimming pool (15 x 7.5 m) has a magnificent view over the orchard which includes a wide variety of fruit trees such as orange, lemon, tangerine, kaki, apple, pear, fig, cherry, kiwi, grapes, apricot, peach, plum and many others. Other points of interest are the two complete outdoor kitchens with barbecue, one by the poolside and the other next to a large stone table in the shade of an oak. The latter also includes a log oven. Casa do Alto is a very large old renovated stone farmhouse (750m2) which is set in a 10 000m2 property nestled in the hillside of the Cavado river valley. It is about 3 km from the University of Minho campus. It includes gardens, a small forest area, two outdoor kitchens with barbeque and a large swimming pool (15x7.5m). It is divided into 3 totally separate floor apartments, each one with their own entrances, patio etc., to assure adequate privacy. Exquisite views from all sides and a part of the old Roman road into Braga is right on the back doorstep. The stone “eira” (or patio where they used to dry cereals) is one of the largest in the Minho area (484 m2) and many memorable events have taken place within this large area. The perfect quiet place to stay as a base to tour around this area of Portugal or just chill out and relax within the grounds of the property itself (1 hectare) either in the surrounding garden, which includes a small wooded area with oaks, cork oaks, sweet chestnuts amongst many other varieties of trees.

About the neighbourhood
There is so much to see around the Minho region and, as Casa do Alto is almost in the center of this region it is an ideal base for this area of the country. Braga is the nearest big city to Casa do Alto and is an exciting city with many historical sites to visit, such as the oldest Cathedral in Portugal. Excellent local and international gastronomy can be enjoyed in the many restaurants available in and around Braga, served with a wide range of the exquisite wines which Portugal is renowned for. There is also a “touristic triangle” composed by the three famous sanctuaries of “Bom Jesus”, “Sameiro” and “Stª Marta” which are well worth a visit.
Getting around
Adaúfe is a small village but has all the amenities necessary (pharmacy, health centre, analyst (blood, urine, etc), ATM, petrol station, hairdressers, supermarket, cafés, bakery, butcher, etc. There are also 2 large shopping centres 5 km away and Braga (Portugal’s 3rd city) is about 5 km from Casa do Alto. Porto International Airport is only 50 minutes away. You will need a car to get around but there is a frequent bus service into Braga and local taxies are also available. Casa do Alto has plenty of parking space
