Taste also the Douro Moscatel wine and the sparkling wine from Távora-Varosa. And if you're looking for a coastal retreat, consider villas in Costa de Prata, where you can enjoy the stunning beaches and explore the charming towns along the Silver Coast.

    Top 7 travel tips in Northern Portugal

    1. Explore the culinary destinations

    Part of the villa holidays in Northern Portugal is getting to taste the typical cuisine of the region, country, or town. Northern Portugal offers a great variety of dishes, and if you want to eat like a local, indulge in codfish, smoked sausages, medium-rare meat, and tripe! Do as the locals do. In Porto, try some “tripas à moda do Porto” which are basically tripes, beans, and cured sausages. In the Douro Valley, go for some “Cozido à Portuguesa”, a boiled dinner with a mix of veggies and meats. And of course, don't forget to enjoy the smoked sausages, such as blood sausage, “chourizo”, and “farinheira”. Wash it all down with some Douro wines. In Braga, sample some “Bacalhau à Braga”, a traditional dish of codfish with an explosion of flavours. In Mirandela, indulge in “Alheira de Mirandela”, one of the Seven Food Wonders of Portugal, and savour the flavour of this smoked sausage melting in your mouth. Also, in Bragança, you can taste two of the most characteristic dishes in northern Portugal - “Caldo verde” and “Posta à Mirandesa”, a medium-rare beef steak with potatoes, drizzled with olive oil. Villa holidays in Northern Portugal offer not only a comfortable stay but also an opportunity to experience the delicious local cuisine.

    2. Explore the wine routes

    As we have mentioned above, Northern Portugal is an excellent region for wine production. Take a journey to the riches of the past and enjoy the Vinho Verde wine tour exploring Guimarães, Braga and Amarante. Another route is from Cávado to Lima, taking you to Barcelos, Viana do Castelo, Ponte de Lima, Ponte da Barca and Arcos de Valdevez. And a third tour runs along the border with Galicia, where you will enjoy in Caminha, Vila Nova de Cerveira, Valença and Monção, the capital of the famous Alvarinho. For Port wine routes, there are endless routes along the Douro River and in Lamego. Want a better experience? In the Demarcated Douro Region, several farms welcome visitors during September and October to experience the art of Port wine, taking part in the harvest!

    3. A visit to Porto

    Porto is a coastal city known for its stately bridges and port wine production. In the medieval Ribeira district, there is a maze of narrow cobbled streets that wind past merchants’ houses and cafés. São Francisco Church or Santa Clara are known for their lavish baroque interiors with ornate gilded woodwork. An impressive Palácio de Bolsa and a lovely neighbourhood to watch the sun go down, Foz de Douro. Enjoy Porto and the laid-back atmosphere.

    4. The unique Douro Valley

    The Douro Valley, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, oozes beauty, magic and incredible landscapes to enjoy fantastic activities during your holidays. Visit some wine-producing quintas in Vila Nova de Gaia, where Port wine is aged, join the grape harvest, go on an environmental cruise near Mirando do Douro and explore the wine-growing villages of Barcos, Favaios, Provessende, Ucanh, Salzedas and Trevões. In Pinhão, the railway station is a must-see and before arriving in Pocinho, visit the castle of Numão. Carved valleys, inclined terraces, exposed vines and man’s labour shape a unique landscape, green in summer and flame-coloured in autumn. Plan your journey today!

    5. Valença, the bordering village

    Close to the Spanish border, Valença, also known as Valença do Minho, is a region to discover the authentic flavour of the region. This fortified village is located above the Minho River, which separates the village from Spain, and it is one of the greenest areas in Northern Portugal. It keeps the citadel walls, a wonder of military engineering. Visit the village, browse the little shops, and enjoy a nice meal at any of the eateries. With a wide range of affordable villas in Northern Portugal, you can experience all this beauty without breaking the bank.

    6. Nature at its best

    The largest protected area in Portugal is in the north of the country. Here we find Peneda-Gerês National Park, a beautiful and stunning region with rich wildlife, holly woods and giant oaks. Hike the paths and enjoy the silence and the animals you can spot along the way. Garrano ponies wander freely, roe deer and Iberian wolves can also be seen sometimes. Besides the animals, you will see traces of older human life in Roman milestones, menhirs and cromlechs.

    7. Espigueiros, the elevated granaries

    Espigueiros are old corn granaries, made from granite and sometimes of wood, supported by stone legs. These peculiar structures scattered around the village of Soajo are very common in Galicia as well, where they call them “hórreos”. Near the church, you will find a spot with several granaries still used to keep corn cool and dry. The oldest one dates to 1872.
