Northern Portugal has so much to offer!
We are in the centre of northern Portugal, near Braga, the Minho province, Guests come for the history and culture, a sporty or active interpretation of their holiday in nature and the regional food and drinks. In our Villa Branca Barreiros, we can accommodate up to 14 people in five luxury b&b rooms and one self-catering flat. All rooms have private sanitary facilities, television, and so on. We offer you tranquillity, cosiness if desired, and do everything to make your stay unforgettable. After all, you should enjoy yourself!
There is so much to experience in this area!

Elly hosted her bed NO breakfast in The Hague for many years. Guests from all over the world showed their satisfaction. Whenever possible, she made the impossible come true. Gerard has a background in healthcare and government and wanted to change tack. Well, he succeeded! In the house, tasks are done jointly, but we also each have our specific share.
Together we provide a daily changing breakfast for the bed and breakfast guests [included in the price!] and several times a week a Mesa do Casa: table d'hôte the Portuguese way. Guests from the apartment can also join the table for a fee! Conviviality, care and personal contact to make your stay unforgettable! We are both in our sixties, but healthy and full of passion for our business. Also read the "Who are Elly and Gerard?" page.
Oh, yes, how did they get here? Well, that was a search for ideal accommodation. Ideal, with several luxury rooms en suite, swimming pool, lovely garden. Well, that didn't happen overnight. And nay, it almost went wrong. They bought a house in the summer, but during the transition period - read rental period prior - to the handover, everything went wrong. Leaks, broken heaters, failure of electricity, whatnot. So the transfer did not go through, and they took the loss of the deposit. Searching again. And at Villa Branca Barreiros, things worked out.
So what's special about this bed and breakfast? Naturally clean, good breakfast, nice rooms, lovely spacious bathrooms, but above all "Elly and Gerard". Always willing to go the extra mile to ensure you have a wonderful stay. The region is inviting on many levels. Use your time well, rest when it is warm by the pool, and possibly leave for a second adventure in one day.
