Meet your host, Pedro

Host on Airbnb since 2015
  • Identity verified
My name is Pedro Cardoso.
Born in Porto, I graduated as an engineer. My father's family is from Resende in the Douro region where we have a small wine estate that also produces cherries. After my marriage I was responsible for a Vinho Verde wine estate in the north of Portugal.
My parents have also a house at Torreira in the Aveiro region. It is a wonderfull place where we use to spend our summer hollidays.
Besides nature and agriculture, one of my passions has always been to discover people and places that now I want to share with you.

Where you'll be

Gerês is nature but also history and culture. Gerês is crossed a roman road built in the 1st century AC that connected “Bracara Augusta” (Braga), and “Asturica Augusta” (Astorga), in a distance of 318kms.

I will take you to discover this road, taste local gastronomy, drink Vinho Verde and witness the unique beauty of the Gerês National Park.
