The House

The Casa do Lugar do Monte is located in the municipality of Paredes de Coura, Formariz, district of Viana do Castelo. The House, restored by a famous Portuguese architect, retains traces of Minho farm house and combines comfort and tradition with mastery.

Shrouded in the lush green of the mountains and deep tranquility, the whisper of the river Coura fills the property and in the spring the courtyards and gardens are seduced by the scent of jasmine and Orange Blossom’s flowers. An invitation to relax and well-being, to communion with nature, to the discovery of the green Minho.


The house of Lugar de Monte can accommodate up to 12 people in very comfortable conditions. In winter time, two fireplaces and a central heating system that reaches all rooms of the house provides a warm and cozy environment. Regarding bedrooms, the house has 4 suites with bathroom and one room with two single beds. An interior lounge with a mezzanine can accommodate one couple. Two living rooms are available and one interior kitchen fully equipped. On the exterior there is an old kitchen with a firewood oven and separate barbeque to enjoy delicious outside meals. Besides the yards and gardens, a private 10-by-5 meter swimming pool is available for refreshing moments provided with a bathroom.
