About this listing

Today, Casa do Piorno retrieves the function of receiving those who climb up the mountain to discover the charms of the Peneda-Gêres.

The space

Branda da Aveleira is one of the several scattered upland areas of a verdant village named Melgaço. It offers a stay in total harmony with nature, which is strengthened by a characteristic of Branda da Aveleira; there are no permanent inhabitants, besides the animals that graze in the mountains, specially the ´Garranos´, a horse breed native of northern Portugal, are very common here.
Enjoy all the simplicity of a stay on the mountain and get taken by the mysticism that hangs around every corner of this village. Breathe healthy air coming from the mountains and follow the paths and walk the trails that will lead you through lush vegetation.

We were met by the owner Patricia who was very friendly and helpful. Branda da Aveilera is a very pretty straggle of stone cottages dotted across a valley just outside the Peneda Geres park. It has a nice restaurant, O Brandeiro, but doesn't have other facilities - so make sure you bring provisions with you. (Patricia provides foodstuffs for breakfast). Branda has good access via lovely drives to Lamas (where there are facilities including a cafe with wifi) and also directly into some of the most dramatic scenery in the park (towards Gavieira). We stayed the first night at Casa do Piorno. It's a simple stone cottage but has everything that you need for a stay including a well equipped kitchenette. We had two dogs and a baby with us so it was a little small. Patricia very kindly moved us to the second cottage on the site (Casa do Castanheira) which is bigger with 2 bedrooms, a large kitchen/sitting/dining room and a terrace with views over the valley. The two cottages are both traditional stone cottages and are very peaceful. We particularly enjoyed breakfast on the terrace listening to the birds and the cow bells and looking across the valley at the lovely view.
