"In Minho, where you truly rest"

Once Upon a Time...

Quinta do Rapozinho is in the parish of São Nicolau, in Cabeceiras de Basto, north of Portugal. It is a set of houses overlooking the green meadows and where the sun comes in as soon as it is born.

Each house offers a different experience, have been restored taking into account the materials of the region and restored furnishings, with a traditional setting but with the comfort of the present times. In total there are six houses with access to the swimming pool, the gardens, children's play area. There is also an old cellar (now reception and living room with fireplace) and mills (current kitchen for workshops and preparation of meals for guests).
