Casa Mindela


The Casa Mindela Guesthouse is a small family-run hotel located at the heart of 50,000 acres of farm land and surrounded by fields and woods. Its privileged location in the rural area of Vila do Conde, on the Portuguese Way of St. James, offers visitors a unique opportunity to rest from a stressful daily life.

The Casa Mindela is a well-preserved example of a 19th century agricultural house from the Portuguese province of Douro Litoral. The farm buildings and living quarters surround a sunny and sheltered central yard where harvests were collected and dried. The oldest building – the main house – dates from 1864 and features a rustic kitchen with a wooden fire and a huge chimney that lends a special touch to the harmonious architecture.

Casa Mindela has been recently refurbished and renovated to accommodate present-day comfort and well-being standards. Different accommodation options are available, as well as a venue for large events and spacious entertainment and leisure areas. The property is fully equipped with optical fibre, cable TV, free Wi-Fi and air conditioning. An open-air swimming-pool will be available shortly.
