House and surroundings
Casa do Adigueiro is located about 100 metres from the river "Rio Cávado". The House was built on the remains of an old farmhouse and has two floors. The ground floor, entirely built of granite and partly underground, has a large living room with seating area and fireplace, pool table and a small kitchenette. The kitchen, reception room and the bedrooms, are located on the first floor, which is also directly accessible from the terrace.
In front of the House there is a small vineyard, used by the owners to produce small quantities of regional wine. At your arrival they always have a little welcome basket waiting for you.
From the porch you have a magnificent view over the vineyard and the mountains of the Serra da Cabreira behind it.
Around the House there is a beautifully landscaped, fully enclosed garden with swimming pool. Together with the Serra da Cabreira, the beautiful surroundings are perfect for hiking.
Within a 10 to 15 minute walk you are in the small village of Casares, with some shops and restaurants and the famous Pousada Santa Maria da Bouro, a 18th century monastery.
Starting in the village, a road leads to an Abbey on the top of a mountain. This route, both on foot and by car (brisk walk), is wonderful to do. (Capelas do Santuário de Nossa Senhora da Abadia)
