OUR GUESTS SAY:

 “Henrique was an amazing host, with great communication and super attentive communication. The place was above my expectations, a paradise for peace and relaxing, a house with delightful details, great taste, a breathtaking view and a night sky more adequate in a surrealistic painting. :) It was a perfect romantic escapade. Highly recommended, will be back when we can. Thank You!!!!!” Tomas (July 2017) Mosteirinho 

 “Lovely little cottage in the mountains. It is the most tranquil and peaceful place i have stayed in Portugal. It was a bit cold in the mountains when I visited, but the fireplace was more than sufficient to make it warm inside.” Tharald

 “Se trata de una cabaña rústica en las montañas con detalles de ebanistería artesanal en todos los rincones. La chimenea, la ubicación y el toque personal hace que sea uno de los sitios más encantadores donde hemos estado. Gracias por todo, Henrique, volveremos.”  Jade y John - Spain/UK  Mosteirinho      

 “Where do I start? Henrique’s place is AMAZING. The views are epic. The natural area is astounding. Make sure you get plenty of supplies in one of the larger towns before you arrive. There are no stores nearby. But it’s worth it.” William - USA. Mosteirinho   

 “What an amazing house. beautiful inside. the area is perfect for walkers and mountain biking. we used the car as little as possible instead cycling everywhere. great fun. loads of fun tracks to follow. the place is very quiet just a small village nearby and no immediate neighbours. great sky views at night. would love to return.” Amanda - GB. Mosteirinho   

 “Very calm village. Very nice house with everything we needed for our family of five. Henrique nice, calm and helpful. Beautiful retreat.” Thx. Jan - Germany. Casa da Zeza   

 “Loved the wood fire - but I'm a pyromaniac at heart !! It does an incredible job of heating the rooms via a clever boiler system & radiators. You won't run out of wood - there is a huge stack ready chopped & sized just right for the fire-place; but make sure you have practised your fire-lighting skills :-) Henrique is a very responsive & helpful host, and will provide recommendations for places to go / things to see.” Zoe - GB Casa da Zeza   

 “Un véritable petit coin de paradis ! Au calme et en pleine nature, de quoi se ressourcer. Le logement est superbe et décoré avec beaucoup de goût et des matériaux de récup. Aucun bruit. La nuit, aucune lumière, ce qui permet d'admirer le ciel étoilé. Nous avons pu boire à l'eau de la source. Admirer les petites grenouilles dans le plan d'eau. Nous relaxer dans le hamac. Prendre de superbes photos du coucher de soleil.” Natacha - FR.   

 “The place in Negreda is simply amazing. All the kitchen utilities one's heart desires are at one's disposal, there's a grill in front of the house and while waiting for the food to get done, you can enjoy the stunning mountain view from a hammock. It is very accessible and fairly near to all the hiking destinations.” Raada - Casa da Zeza 

   “Henrique's house is exactly as described: small, but excellently located and close to restaurants, shops and to the beach. We didn't meet Henrique, but he answered to our questions reasonably quickly and the self check in was very easy; he also provided towels, which is a nice plus. We would definitely recommend this location, though you have to bear in mind that the house has 3 floors connected by narrow stairs, so it may not be ideal for older individuals (also because the toilet is on ground level, whereas the bed is on the 2nd floor).” Francesco - IT. Casa do Pescador 

   “He pasado unas vacaciones increíbles con mi hija de 6 años en la casa de Henrique. La casa es tal y como se ve en las fotos, la conexión wifi perfecta, equipamiento completo, el contar con barbacoa y hamaca en la terraza: un auténtico lujo... La televisión, calefacción y chimenea ni idea, no las hemos usado. Hemos estado en julio así que no hemos necesitado de calefacción ni chimenea, y ¿quién quiere televisión en un sitio así? El pueblo es super tranquilo, perfecto para desconectar de la civilización, y el entorno una pasada. A pesar de todo, en las 3 semanas que hemos estado, no hemos tenido tiempo para aburrirnos: Hemos disfrutado de las playas del Azibo y de las piscinas de los pueblos de alrededor: Penhas Juntas, Macedo de Cavaieiros, Vinhais Hemos realizado rutas de senderismo por la propia Albufera del Azibo, Parque Natural de Montesinho, alrededores del Lago de Sanabria o a la Cascata do Cachão da Malhadinha (andando desde la misma casa) Visitado los pueblos de alrededor, como Vinhais, Bragança o Chaves. Aunque da ganas de pararse en cada pueblo por el que pasas. Al igual que los paisajes del monte, son espectaculares. A cada paso que das puedes sacar una foto que es una auténtica postal. Henrique es encantador y atento "más allá del deber". Siempre pendiente de cualquier cosa que puedas necesitar o que te pueda ayudar a hacer la estancia más agradable. Como decía: unas vacaciones inolvidables. Voltaremos seguro ;)” Asier y Princesa - España. Casa da Zeza   

 “Henrique estuvo pendiente de nosotros en todo momento. La casa era incluso más bonita y acogedora de lo que parecía en las fotos y el sitio es perfecto para un fin de semana de desconexión y tranquilidad. La casa está súper equipada con todo lo que te puedes imaginar. Altamente recomendable.” Lorena - España (Casa da Zeza)   

 “Otima localização para passar uns dias isolados, em plena Natureza. A casa do Mosteirinho é um catinho rustico, onde é normal conviver com alguns insectos, uma vez que estamos nós no seu habitat. Mas é um espaço muito acolhedor, com tudo o que é necessário e está decorada com muito bom gosto. Existe uma nascente no terreno abaixo da casa com agua muito boa! O jardim está repleto de objectos e construções criativas, e da varanda a paisagem é magnifica ao som da cascata, ao fundo do vale. à noite, a visao das estrelas é indescritível. é um lugar magico! O Henrique é um excelente antifriao, muito acessível, prestável e com muito boa disposição.” Tilde - Port. Mosteirinho

     “Quem estiver procurando um lugar tranquilo e cheio de poesia pode encontrar na Casa da Zeza, o Henrique é um anfitrião muito presente e prestativo, sempre disposto a resolver qualquer eventualidade. Um ponto de destaque foi o wi-fi de excelente potência. Vivemos momentos muito agradáveis e esperamos poder voltar.” Rosa - Brasil (Casa da Zeza)     

 “Henrique's is a spacious, cozy and comfortable restored old house. The village is very peaceful and authentic and the landscape around is rugged and perfect for walks. The three bedrooms were very homely and the wood stove was a great comfort. The kitchen is also exceptionally well equipped; we didn't use the barbecue but the terrace would be ideal in summer months. We enjoyed two very relaxing nights here and would recommend it highly. Thank you, Henrique.” Kirsteen - Scotland (Casa da Zeza)   

 “We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again! It was secluded and romantic and our host was truly enjoyable.” Stephen - USA. Mosteirinho   

 “Todo perfecto. Casa muy bonita y muy bien equipada. Fría pero con la chimenea se calienta rápido! Entorno natural muy bonito y a 25km de Braganza. Muchas cosas que ver y hacer por esta zona. No pudimos conocer a Henrique pero estuvo siempre atento a todo y ofreciéndonos un trato muy amable. Su prima Conchi y Félix amabilísimos, siempre atentos a todo y nos trataron estupendamente. Además Conchi prepara alimentos artesanos buenísimos! Hospitalidad 10. Volveremos pronto. MUY RECOMENDABLE.” Javier - España (Casa da Zeza)   

 “This was the perfect place to relax after a long day of travel. it was so relaxing we accidentally slept for 12 hours. make sure to set your alram, there is a rooster nearby, but the thick walls make this place extremely quiet.” Kevin - USA (Mosteirinho)      

 “What a great place, if you are looking for remote peace and tranquility this is it. Absolutely everything that you could need is there. Perfect for the colder months as we enjoyed a log burner fire, excellent central heating & shower. Parking opposite is good and your car is protected by 2 little dogs that seem to patrol the quiet hamlet without bumping into another living soul. The place was lovely and clean and although Henrique was not there he had arranged for a fire to be in prior to our arrival to ensure we were comfortable.” Wendy -  Casa da Zeza   

 “Elegir la casita de Henrique para pasar unos días en la naturaleza y desconectar ha sido un acierto total. Aunque Henrique no estaba ahí, ha estado pendiente de nosotros en todo momento, solucionando todas nuestras dudas rápidamente y ayudándonos a que nuestra estancia fuese perfecta. Es un lugar sencillo pero muy cómodo. Tiene todo lo que necesitas. La zona es super tranquila y la naturaleza que la rodea, preciosa. La primera noche hacía mucho frío fuera y la casa tardó un poquito en calentarse. La calefacción funciona a través de la chimenea, y aunque la casa es grande, se calienta bastante. Hay un montón de leña. La verdad es que hemos estado genial, y esperamos poder volver pronto. ¡Muchas gracias Henrique por todo!” Beatriz - España    

 “This place is gold, tucked away in the mountains at the end of a gravel road, perfect to get away from it all. Lovely furnished with great attention to detail, and Henrique is super friendly and helpful. Big recommendation.” Christoph - Germany/South Africa.   Mosteirinho     

 “Loved this little spot quaint and just meters from the beach!” Virginia - France    Casa do pescador   “Henrique’s place is an amazing house with rustic vibes and a stunning view. Though Negreda in the winter is known for being so cold - especially at night - I guarantee you, there was not a moment that we felt a breeze, even. The bed linens were the warmest, most comfortable I’ve ever slept in.”  Dandhara - PT (Fraga, Mosteirinho)            

 “Todo moi xenial!...A casa, o entorno, o emplazamento cumpriu as nosas espectativas...Moitas Grazas a Felix e Henrique, por estar pendente de nos!” Germán - Galicia Esp. (Mosteirinho)   

 “O Mosteirinho é realmente um lugar especial. Este foi o segundo ano em que lá passamos parte das férias e voltámos a adorar. O Henrique desdobra-se para ter o espaço 5 estrelas! Sabe TUDO sobre a área e imensas histórias que valem mesmo a pena descobrir. Fomos com a bebé de 2 anos e ela adorou correr pelo terreno, ir à fonte e apanhar amoras e figos para o pequeno almoço. O espaço é espectacular e a zona tem mesmo muita coisa para aproveitar - o Azibo, o lago de Sanabria, Miranda do Douro e as redondezas do Mosteirinho (a cascata, o moínho, ...). Muito obrigada,” Henrique. Marina - PT (Mosteirinho)  

 “Best kept secret, a treasure to share though. Henrique and Lisa are great hosts who make you feel very welcome, and took us to the swimming holes nearby...” Eveline - Netherlands (Mosteirinho).
