- Motorhome pitches on a hillside wine estate in Arcos de Valdevez
- A 55-minute drive to Braga; 15 minutes to Miradouro do Monte Vascões
- Vineyard tours, wine tasting and organic food available on site
Wine and walking – what an excellent mix for a holiday. The tree-shaded pitches at hilly Quinta de Santa Marinha wine estate make a great base for such things, as they are close to the start of the riverside Ecovia do Rio Vez hiking trail. This tiny site only has a few pitches, all with spectacular views over the vineyard and surrounding Arcos de Valdevez countryside near Viana do Castelo.
Simple amenities include electric hook-ups as well as wooden compost loos and a free wifi connection, but the real plus points at this secluded spot are the wine-tasting sessions and the organic treats cooked up by the resident chef and owner.
If you fancy sampling some fine regional Chardonnay white or red Merlot wines (a fee applies), please reserve your wine-tasting session at least 24 hours in advance. Likewise there is a charge for tasty breakfasts and dinners created from specialities made in house, including pastries and charcuterie – again please order your food 24 hours ahead of time. There’s also a small grocery store on site if you're going down the self-catering route.
Tours of the vineyard are offered too; often accompanied by resident canine Koky. You are welcome to bring your own dogs to join in the fun.
Minimum spacing of 5 metres between pitches.

As well as walking the Ecovia do Rio Vez hiking trail, you can potter about in the hills, discovering sights including the Medieval Bridge of Vilela (10 minutes’ drive) and the Cascata das Lages Altas waterfall (half an hour) as well as viewpoints like the Miradouro do Monte Vascões (15 minutes).
If you fancy a day out in the big city, the lovely and historic city of Braga (55 minutes) offers a 12th-century cathedral, a slew of museums and some lovely Baroque-era architecture. The ornate Bom Jesus Sanctuary in Tenões (an hour) is approached by a monumental stone staircase (or you can cheat and take the funicular to the top of the hill) – either way your reward is fabulous views over Braga from the top.
Another pretty spot is Viana do Castelo (45 minutes), where you might like to shop for gold filigree jewellery, follow a walking route around architectural styles from Renaissance to Art Deco, or swim and jetski in the Atlantic Ocean from sandy beaches.
