Representing one of the best examples from the traditional local architecture, Casa Boavista is placed in Formariz, a small and quite village in Paredes de Coura at the Minho’s Heart – North of Portugal.
When talking about Formariz, José Augusto Vieira a landscaper, said once: “Without doubt this is the village having the most smiling, interesting and enjoyable people in Paredes de Coura… crossed by river Coura... its landscape is charming”.
It is given to its guests the possibility to appreciate a deserved rest, privileged by its natural beauty and its pleasant people.
Every year in August, by the riverside on Taboão river beach, occurs the mythical Paredes de Coura Festival. This International Rock festival brings this place thousands of visitors coming from everywhere.
