Portugal is an amazingly diverse country. Cities like Lisbon, Coimbra and Porto offer a bustling culture rich with activity. But if you enjoy getting off the beaten path away from the traffic and tourists, Minde is for you!

A small town with 9 centuries of history, Minde is less than 90 minutes from both Lisbon and Coimbra, and only 30 miles from famous Nazare’ beach, making it the perfect spot to explore from. Take day trips to the Shrine of Fatima, 2,000-yr-old World Heritage site Evora, and the medieval town of Obidos, to name a few. It is also the perfect jumping off point for hiking the Camino or further explorations in Portugal such as the southern Algarve, the Duoro Valley wine country in the north, the Azores or beyond!


You’ll love our Sophisticated Country House in PORTUGAL!

We searched for a unique and central property and we found the perfect spot! Our Country House is an ecotourism house, located in the middle of a natural park (PNSAC) featuring a wildlife refuge, hiking, bicycling, and horseback riding. With a prime view over the polje of Minde and Mira d’Aire, it is the perfect place to be in tune with nature and find serenity. Close to geological and historical medieval heritage sites with caves, walking trails, rivers for swimming, and UNESCO World Heritage sites, Country House is a great starting point for exploring the sights of Central Portugal. Inspired by its natural surroundings, Country House has all the amenities you will need to feel at home.

While traveling in Croatia, longtime girlfriends Jane Howard and Elise Kloter had a light bulb moment…they loved to travel and enjoyed researching cool locations and unique accommodations, but all that planning could be exhausting! As single gals, they also found it challenging to find travel partners…we’re all so busy and schedules don’t always jive. And while all this research took a ton of energy and time, they just weren’t ready to turn their sense of adventure and curiosity over to a tour guide. So they came up with an idea for the best of both worlds…provide the framework for an awesome vacation with fabulous, like-minded women, while leaving room for spontaneity and individual interests. Hence, Girls on the Go Destinations!
