Casa Fonte do Carvalhinho, on the top of Branda da Aveleira, dominates a vast
and stunning landscape. The house is named after a fountain called ´Carvalhinho´
which is located close to the house and that once quenched the shepherds´ and
their animals´ thirst.
This house served as a refuge to the ´brandeiros´. They ascended the mountain during the summer with their cattle, when the pastures were better, and returned to the village during the winter.
Branda da Aveleira is one of the several scattered upland areas of the Parque Nacional da Peneda-Gerês. It proposes you a stay in total harmony with nature, where the only inhabitants of this village are animals, specially the ´Garranos`, a horse breed native of northern Portugal, are very common here.
Enjoy the simplicity of a stay on the mountain and walk the trails discovering the flora and fauna of this region. It is a charming region that changes radically depending on the seasons, being totally covered by snow in the winter and by flowers in the summer.
