Northern Portugal

Exceptional holidays, beautifully local & certifiably responsible

Cookies must be enabled in order to view maps

Tucked up in the far north, on the border with Spain, is a scenic pocket of Portugal unaffected by tourism, where no one is ever in much of a hurry and where the clocks seem to tick a little slower.


Evergreen Minho, nestled up against the Spanish border in the far north of Portugal, has a generally quite mild and stable climate. With the Atlantic nearby, we can’t guarantee you won’t see a bit of rain outside the summer months, but it’s this precipitation that creates the lush green landscapes that we love. So it’s a small price to pay in our view.
