Casa do Assento - Caminho.
13th century cottage in front of the Castle of Lindoso, in the National Park of Peneda-Gerês: nature, history, culture, gastronomy! House with all luxuries and amenities, with certificate of 'Casa de Campo', Rural Tourism. One of two houses resulting from the division of the Casa do Assento, this denominated of ''Lado do Caminho'', which inspired its decoration, allusive to travelers, explorers and nature.

The space
This is a house with a history, related to the castle - the legend says that at some point in the house came the bread that supplied the Castle and was connected to it by a tunnel. It is a very comfortable house, totally restored with materials and techniques typical of the region, which offers a careful decoration in which the style of the hunting lodges is mixed with period furniture manufactured with traditional techniques. It offers great quality, with all modern facilities, including air conditioning and wi-fi, yet retaining the traditional architectural features. Outside has generous gardens surrounding with chestnut trees and fruit trees. The house extends over two floors and has two bedrooms (one with double bed, one with double bed and single), a bathroom with bath, living room and fully equipped kitchen. The living room has a large dining table, Chesterfield sofas, wood burning stove, exquisite decor, and maps and books about the area. In privileged location, just in front of the Lindoso Castle, it is within the Peneda-Gerês National Park, near the Lima River and Spain. Enjoy the castle, the Espigueiros do Lindoso, the many archaeological sites and historical monuments of the region, the rivers, waterfalls, natural hot springs, water sports and hiking - and certainly the fabulous gastronomy after another day of action.

Where you’ll be

Portugal

Lindoso is one of the 'Aldeias de Portugal', the Portuguese brand that recognizes interesting villages in Northern Portugal. It is located in the municipality of Ponte da Barca, in Alto Minho, 4 km from Spain and is part of the Peneda-Gerês National Park.
The castle of Lindoso, built in the reign of D. Afonso III in the 13th century, is classified as a national monument and deserves a careful visit. As one of the official 'doors' of the Peneda-Gerês National Park, there is an interpretive center near the church and inside the castle. To book a guided tour to the castle and granaries use the email portalindoso@cmpb.pt.

About me: ENGLISH
Life is much better when you are curious. Traveling is part of that. Renting a house is part of sharing the places I like, starting with Porto and Northern Portugal. They are places of immense beauty, rich traditions and heritage. Come and be dazzled by the landscapes, culture, flavors, history and beauty of these places
 I love art, music and food - things that make life so much better. And from nature, to walk through the mountains, discover beaches and rivers, to return to civilization at dusk and discover a good restaurant to enjoy the local gastronomy.


Sobre mim: PORTUGUÊS
A vida é muito melhor quando se é curioso. Viajar faz parte disso. Alugar casa faz parte do partilhar os lugares que eu gosto, começando pelo Porto e Norte de Portugal. São sítios de imensa beleza, ricas tradições e património. Venha deslumbrar-se com as paisagens, a cultura, os sabores, a história e beleza desses lugares
Gosto muito de arte, musica e comida - coisas que tornam a vida muito melhor. E da natureza, de caminhar pelas montanhas, descobrir praias e rios, para ao entardecer voltar à civilização e descobrir um bom restaurante para desfrutar da gastronomia local.
