Rinoterra Minho found its place in the Portuguese city of Caminha which lies on the border between the Minho region in the north of Portugal and the Spanish Galicia. Here are gathered the covered mountains of evergreen vegetation, the border river Minho and the mighty Atlantic. The virgin nature is preserved here almost miraculously in its original aspect. It is very pleasant to witness this when, while hiking in the mountains, we are faced with the wild horses, the ubiquitous rabbits, a beautiful redhead fox, or an eagle hovering in the sky. Caminha, formerly known as a fishing village, was once a land of smugglers, has kept the peace of mind and a taste for past times, summoning a sentimental nostalgia through its small streets, cafés and restaurants where you can taste the local cuisine, fish and the freshest seafood, enjoy the old buildings, and mingle with kind and smiling people. From the first moment, we are instinctively immersed in the rhythm of local life, very quiet and without the rush, confusion or stress of a big city. It was hard struggling against the urge to share this beauty and a sense of tranquility with you. And thus arose the idea of creating a dedicated entity for tourism, which could invite, receive and accommodate with a high level of comfort and hospitality all those who want to see and feel all the charm of these places. Show them the very best in this beautiful region, allow them the possibility to forget for a few days the noise and the city's problems, spending time without haste or agitation and scoop from nature a load of vivacity and strength. And so we have decided to acquire land with a house in ruins that we restored for three years, trying to preserve the charm of an old Portuguese farm and at the same time add to it comfort and refined decor. However we believe that currently is not enough to provide a beautiful and comfortable place. Our guests need something more to truly recover their strength and well-being. From this need arose the concept of "Water Garden", consisting on an open solarium, sauna, jacuzzi and a space where you can enjoy massages, beauty and health treatments, thus providing strengthening to the body and well-being . And as you cannot "stay within four walls," with so much beauty around, we provide the most diverse activities such as biking, hiking in the mountains, fishing, riverside walks, excursions in the area, participating in harvests, tastings and more. With these activities, we hope you to return with a sense of pleasant fatigue and especially with appetite to enjoy the taste of products and local dishes and taste the Portuguese wine in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere of our hall. Our chef will be happy to assist you in choosing your menu and you can, if desired, accompany him in the making of selected dishes. We sincerely hope that we have succeeded in providing all that we set out to accomplish, but we know there is still much more to be done. And who will evaluate the results of our work? You, of course! We are waiting for you and we will try to make your stay here truly unique and rich in emotions, so that in the future you want to return and feel like you are at your own home!
